Chyrond is one of Veryan's famous Round Houses, built by the Reverend Jeremiah Trist in the 19th century out of cob construction with a thatched roof. In a Round House, there are no corners where the devil can hide. A cross on the top of each one adds extra protection! The cottage has been extended over the years, and now has a master bedroom with en suite on the first floor of the Round House and a dining room and kitchen below. There are now two further bedrooms and a large living room as well. This is a dog-friendly property with a purpose-built dog run in the peaceful garden. It has been in the Williams family since the 1960s and, although much modernised, is still the family holiday home, now in its fourth generation.

Nestled in the heart of the picturesque rural village of Veryan with its unusual Round Houses, convenience store and pub. Also nearby is the quintessential Cornish harbour village of Portloe which still has a few fishing boats that are rolled up onto the beach via a traditional winch. This is big walking country and there are few places better suited to exercise the family pet. There is easy access to the coastal footpath with some dramatic walks around Nare Head, Portloe and the Dodman which is slightly further away. For those looking for a great beach, Carne beach with its long expanse of sand is only a mile away together and was recently voted one of National Geographic's top ten beaches in the world. The renowned Nare Hotel is perched above the beach and offers some great dining experiences, as does the Driftwood Hotel at Rosevine which boasts a Michelin star, you will need to book in advance, great pub food can also be found at The New Inn (Veryan), The Ship Inn (Portloe), The Plume of Feathers (Portscatho) or in St Mawes the options are The Rising Sun, The Victory or The St Mawes Hotel.

A privilege a stay in the gorgeous village of Veryan and in Chyrond, a little piece of quirky history. This holiday cottage would be absolutely idyllic if it was loved and looked after. We opened the door to an overwhelming smell of dogs, that odour could have been neutralised. The cottage was well equipped but everything tired, plates chipped, mugs chipped, ensuite loo seat broken, dirty cutlery and utensils, hair on stairs. Dirty in all the corners, radiators minging. Such a shame, as all so easy to get right and at a good clean standard, especially in these times! Cottage needs painting inside and out, window sills devoid of paint in places. I found a purse in a drawer which was full of cards and money that was left from a previous guest so I contacted her and posted it to her... why had housekeeping not found that and returned it to the lady? These things should be checked for and dealt with accordingly. So, with these things in mind, I won't be recommending Chyrond.


A beautiful old roundhouse situated in the lovely village of Veryan, this property is perfectly located for touring the peaceful Roseland peninsula. The property had all that was needed for a comfortable stay and the lemon drizzle cake on the tea tray when we arrived was a delicious extra touch. The property was fairly clean and tidy on arrival with a well stocked kitchen. The property is in need of a little TLC. For example the bath in the master bathroom was a little unstable and the toilet seat was loose. However the location and the history of the property make it a lovely place to base a holiday of exploration and rest. Somewhere we’d love to return.

We enjoyed a magical and beautiful week in the Chyrond! A quirky, delightful, comfortable little house with so much history. What a wonderful place to enjoy part of Cornwall history. Every aspect of the property was thought out, and we even worked out how to operate the central heating! We would love to return in 2023, but realise we were some of the last guests, since the property has recently been sold to new owners! We hope there may be an opportunity to revisit Veryan and this wonderful location again. Sheila & Guy

Veryan’s roundhouses have always intrigued me and the inside didn’t disappoint! Stairs disappeared everywhere. 5 of us stayed at Chyrond, plenty of room for everyone, great situation in village which is close to lovely beaches and gives easy access to the glorious Roseland.

Lucy Emmott

Had a wonderful week in this unique round house. Close to beaches and coastal path with a pub and little shop within walking distance. House is well equipped and welcoming.

Richard Westover

A lovely experience to stay in a round house. Clever and thoughtful use of space provided plenty of room for a family of 5. Veryan is well located for Pendower beach (a walk) or Roseland in general. Would recommend

We had an amazing break at this property, my children loved being in a round house (as we all did) and seeing their holiday home on a postcard topped it for them. The home is a great location for visiting the local areas and offers the peaceful surroundings you want at night. We loved visiting cairn beach and found the boat trips to Falmouth and surrounding locations great for days out. We would defiantly visit again, great location, great size and perfect for pooches. We did visit the pub in the village but have to say it wasn’t amazing! The service and Food let the pub down, however a recommendation from the house was a fave for us. Kings Head at Ruan Lanihorne. Brilliant food, cater for coeliacs and the service was FAB. Thank you

We have stayed at the property for a week, we had everything we need for our stay and more! The cottage is very well equipped. The beds are comfortable and garden is lovely. The location is ideal just a very short walk to a cosy pub with nice food and shop where you can buy all essentials and some local produce as well! There are several walks from the village you can enjoy either just taking your dogs for a walk or if you wish to walk to the beach or take longer costal walks directly from the cottage. We have loved every bit of it and would definitely stay here again

Heating difficult to understand. Cottage cold. No hot water. Otherwise lovely place to stay, in an ideal spot. Lovely places to visit.

We loved staying at Chyrond. An idyllic cottage close to the seaside with great facilities. The cottage was kitted out with all we could possibly of needed including books, games, kitchenware etc. and we really wanted for nothing! We loved the bedding so much I am purchasing a new duvet to match the one we used! Thank you Cornwall Cottages and Chryrond - we had a great time.

Jamie West

We loved chyrond, great space, great village and great base for getting about. We couldn’t have been any more chilled out. We’re going to book this cottage again for our next trip south. Thanks chyrond we loved our trip.

The accommodation was very good and spacious and the property extremely well equipped. However the large downstairs bedroom was out of action due to the awful smell of damp. Opening the windows and doors helped but it never went away. We stayed there as two couples in our 60s and using the second upstairs bedroom (accessed by a steep, loft ladder type staircase) was difficult because of bad hips, creaky knees and needing to use the downstairs bathroom multiple times in the night! The room itself was very nice although not much headroom but would have been absolutely fine for younger people. It is a shame about the damp and it really needs sorting out. Unfortunately although the heating worked very well, there was an issue with hot water, the timer was not working but we just had to remember to put on the immersion heater for a short while each day. The showers are electric so no issue there. All that said, it is a lovely property in a very nice village and we would be tempted to stay there again.

We had a great stay in Chyrond. Clean, tidy and everything you need for a great stay in Cornwall. Cottage is in a lovely village just a couple of minutes from a pub and local shop

Eric Stewart Tauber

The cottage was lovely and very handy for other areas. There was some issues re water heating and shower which we were made aware of before going. I was very anxious about these but needn’t have been as it was fine for the two of us but could have been an issue with a larger group. On arrival we found the tumble drier was not working and as we had seriously wet clothes after being caught in a heavy shower, we had to put the heating on to dry our clothes, which was fine. I would have thought that the rental company would check everything, and make good before renting out.There was a slight smell of damp on arrival but this can be expected with an older property. We have been renting lots of properties over the years and it was the first not to supply washing up liquid/ dishwasher tablets, or clothes washing liquid. I might have thought it was something to do with COVID-19 however we had just had a week in Dorset and it was supplied. A couple of sun loungers would have been great. All in all, we did enjoy our stay there and would return.
