Chy Gweder showcases the finest craftsmanship with a considered layout to enjoy the North Cornwall elements from every window.

Lighthouse Hill winds its way up the cliff and arrive to the creative design and welcoming ambiance of Chy Gweder. This contemporary home has been clad in warm cedar wood which frames the over sized floor to ceiling glass walls creating a stand out holiday home and perfect setting for your time in Cornwall. It’s no surprise the house has recently been nominated for the South West LABC Building Excellence Awards.

From the moment you arrive the house is flooded with natural light and a great sense of space, hypnotic countryside and coastal vistas are captured at every turn. To the front of Chy Gweder relax in style in the laid back living space, in the cooler months unwind in front of a good film with surround sound for that cinema effect or slide back the glass doors to create an al fresco extension to the room and jackpot sunset spot from Spring to Autumn.

The sleek dining table is set under the glass corner of the property, choose to dine in style as the valley views drop away beneath you. No need for volunteers, the kitchen sink-with-a-view will have your happy helpers lining up! Three beautiful bedrooms have been individually styled to create personal havens for your luxury holiday. The contemporary family bathroom is no less considered with luxury walk in rain shower and deep bath. Every cushion, cup and chair has been thoughtfully chosen to complement this unique holiday home and ensure the most memorable stay.

From your private vantage point the panoramic views open up beneath you. A large secure patio area with bespoke black solid wood dining table and chairs is perfectly placed to capture the day long sunshine. A glass balustrade secures the area making a safe haven for children to play and for you to relax. The master bedroom has its own platform overlooking the valley, to capture the morning sunrise.
