Chycoose (Cornish: Chy'n Coos, meaning house of the wood), Point and Penpol (Cornish: Pen Pol, meaning head of a creek) form a coastal settlement around Penpol Creek in Cornwall, England, United Kingdom.
The creek is a ria, a tidal inlet on the north side of Restronguet Creek. It is situated approximately three-quarters of a mile (1 km) west of Feock village which is four miles (6.5 km) south of Truro.
Chycoose is on the west bank of Penpol Creek and Penpol hamlet is at the north end of the creek. Point is on a small promontory where Penpol Creek joins Restronguet Creek.
Trolver, a small coastal settlement, extends along the east side of the Penpol Creek south from Penpol.
However, until the beginning of the 20th century, Restronguet Creek was a busy commercial waterway with extensive wharves on the north bank. Penpol was a small port engaged in the export of tin and copper from the mining areas a few miles to the north and there were wharves at Point Quay served by an extension of the Redruth and Chasewater Railway; trains on this section of line were hauled by horses from Devoran, a mile (1.6 km) upstream.
'The Restronguet Creek Society' is a voluntary organisation formed in 1972 to protect and preserve the creek and its environs.
