“Can't wait to get back for a longer stay”

This cottage was the perfect base for exploring the area. Quiet and inviting. I really enjoyed my first cuppa of the day in the private garden. Nice to have reliable wifi. The entire place was immaculate. The hosts know something about hospitality, and could not have been more helpful and accommodating. This is my new favorite retreat, and I will stay longer on my next visit.

This was our second visit and found it just as enjoyable as the first.The cottage is comfortable
and well equipped and in a quiet location.There is a large garden which is ideal for young children plus a good supply of toys.There is plenty to see all within half hour drive.The hosts,Patrick and Tracey were very friendly and helpful.Will definitely return.

“Simply the Best”

We wanted a comportable base to use for visiting family in the area, which we do regularly and over time have stayed in many properties. This was our first time in 'Swallows Cottage' and we all agreed it was 'Simply the Best'. It had everything we needed. The bedrooms are roomy and bright as was the lounge /kitchen area, we accomadated for 5 large adults at some meals! The beds were clean and so comfy, a real issue for me as a back sufferer. The outside space was fab, our little dog loved it and my spacial needs son was safe enough to go out to play football on his own. It would be suitable for familys with small children and dogs but equally for romantic couples. It felt quite private and being south facing made the best of the sun, which we noted for summer stays. Patric & Tracey made us feel very welcome and were more than happy to supply all our needs without being intusive, they were easy to contact from start to finish. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer but we will deffinatly be back!!!!

“Perfect location with great facilities for that get away break”
Reviewed 9 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Wonderful location surrounded by private fields with great amenities provided in the cottage. Lovely friendly welcome, the owners very helpful with ideas & recommendations of things to do in the area. Cottage and grounds very private giving you that get away feeling. Located on a very quiet road, so no noise what so ever, with ample parking and a great Wifi connection!

Would highly recommend a visit here and hope to be back soon - thank you for a very enjoyable stay!!

“This place is a slice of heaven!”
Reviewed 9 February 2015 for a stay in July 2014

Our week long stay was a relaxing break in the Cornish countryside and was fantastic value for money too. Why travel overseas when such beauty is on our doorstep… We arrived and were met by the hosts Patrick and Tracey. They are warm and friendly and greeted us with a plate of freshly made and delicious hot scones, strawberry jam and clotted cream. The cottage was all we could have asked for as it’s located on a quite lane, but within easy reach of supermarkets, pubs, restaurants and many attractions. The cottage was spotless and very comfortable and we were surprised to find all the mod cons of home including wireless internet. Our two boys loved the field at the back as there’s a mini football field (with goals), a badminton court and a swing ball. There’s only positives to say about this place. We have recommended the cottages to friends and family and they have love this place too. We have booked again to return this summer but this time we are taking the extended family and are renting the farmhouse. Again this place is a slice of heaven!
