Chyvarloe Bunkhouse

English Hostels, Group Accommodation, Bunkhouses and Camping Barns in Cornwall

Chyvarloe, on the edge of the Penrose Estate, is the gateway to The Lizard Peninsula. The bunkhouse is next to the SW coast path and has good access to many local walks, trails and cycling routes.

Penrose, is home to many rare species of birds and wildlife as well as Cornwall’s largest freshwater lake the Loe. A great location to base your group for wildlife adventures, walking and activity holidays or a break away from it all.

The bunkhouse has two main dorm rooms, with bunks and beds that sleep 7. A twin room is located in a separate section of the bunkhouse. There are 5 individual bathroom pods and a communal kitchen/dinning area. A drying room and kit store are available. Solar panels and the wood burner provide the hot water and heating system. The first batch of logs is supplied.

The Bunkhouse has excellent partnerships with local activity providers and can point you in the right direction for surfing, kayaking, coasteering, climbing and cycling, including bike hire if necessary.
