This is the fourth time we have stayed at Swallow Cottage, we had a fantastic stay again lovely arrival touch in cottage of fresh scones, clotted cream and jam along with flowers. Patrick and Tracey are lovely owners, and were really great with our two daughters taking them to see their chickens, and the dogs Alfie and Herbie and Nev the cat which made our daughters holiday as they love animals. Swallow Cottage is in a great location, not far from atrractions like Flambards, Porthleven, Pendennis Castle, St Michaels Mount, Newquay etc. The cottage has a homely feel with a lovely bright interior and furnishings along with simple touches showing the local area, look forward to returning to the cottage again
Communication in response to all queries before arrival informative and quick. Owners went out of their way to ensure cottage was available for us to check in 4 hours early which was great after a 7hr drive with two young children. Thoughtful delicious scones, and jam and clotted cream on arrival as well as some milk. Cottage had everything we needed for a self catering stay. Gardens beautiful with so much safe space. Our three year old really enjoyed playing football and riding his bike. Badminton net also there to use. No need to bring your own sports equipment as it's available there to borrow. They even had children's toys there to use. Owners very nice in lending us their national trust membership cards for our days out. Excellent location close by to St Michael's Mount, Penzance, lizard point, kynance cove, flambards, praa sands etc. Would have loved to have stayed longer. If visiting that area again would love to come back and stay. Lovely to have holiday let owners so passionate and caring about their holiday let business. Would definitely recommend.
Lovely rural location but within easy drive of numerous beaches and attractions. Our kids loved being able to play football in the garden. The owners were very welcoming and shared lots of suggestions for places to visit locally. We’d happily return.
Beautiful cottage in a lovely peaceful setting
Patrick and Tracey were the perfect hosts
Will return one day
We had a great winter break in Swallow cottage. The peaceful setting was just what we wanted for our relaxing week away. The cottage was lovely and clean with a spacious lounge/kitchen diner. On arrival we had homemade scones and clotted cream waiting for us along with fresh eggs from the friendly hen. The hosts Tracey and Patrick were kind enough to help out with some sight seeing top tips and were very friendly throughout our stay. This is a great place to stay as it is within a 30 minute drive from most of the major attractions within the area....such as Lizard point, Minack Theatre and Land End. Would highly recommend a visit.
Great location within easy reach of major attractions. The cottage is set in great grounds, situated up a small lane away from all roads. Excellent get away from it all. Really good activities for kids if you have them.
What a wonderful stay we had. We travelled down with our 2 children, 4 and 2. Upon arrival Patrick the barn owner was very hospitable, offering advice on places to visit whilst in Cornwall. The cottage came equipt with all mod cons and our hosts had left a handy information sheet listing places of interest etc. The cottage itself has a spacious feel due to the vaulted ceiling and extensive outdoor space. Our boys loved adventuring in the garden, playing hide and seek and football, not to mention the swing set.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Swallows Cottage and do hope to stay again in the future. It's perfectly situated for exploring Cornwall and we discovered some wonderful places.
