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.
Ideally placed for exploring this area of Cornwall. The cottage is like a home from home, with Patrick and Tracey thinking of everything. The double bed is extremely comfortable and I slept better than I do at home. The garden out of the back of the cottage is extremely well cared for and is ideal for kids and dogs alike. The cottage was wonderfully clean when we arrived and both Patrick and Tracey are very knowledgeable about the area and places to visit. We will return.
Wow. Absolutely fantastic holiday accommodation. Patrick and Tracey have a little gem of a complex of two cottages and farmhouse here.
Highly recommend staying.
Homemade scones on arrival with local clotted cream.
Cosy and comfortable accommodation with stunning countrysideviews Iin every direction.
Beautiful gardens which our 4 year old loved exploring, especially the maze.
Our little girl thoroughly enjoyed meeting the owners dogs Alfie and Herbie who are adorable.
Lots of places to visit and some fantastic restaurants in the area.
If looking for somewhere child friendly then this is very definitely the place for you.
We are looking forward to returning next year.
Where to start?! This cottage has everything we were looking for.
The owners were perfect hosts, nothing is too much trouble for them and they want you to feel like it's home from home. They give you your space but are also there with lots of local knowledge and tips.
We made a long journey with two young kids and our Labrador but they made a highchair and travel cot with two thick mattresses available to us. Best our little one has slept on holiday! There's also a swing set in the huge garden, animals for them to see and lots of beautiful views and countryside.
You really feel like you can switch off from the hustle and bustle with the acres of land. The icing on the cake was our three year old was able to collect the hens eggs during the holiday. It really made her trip!
The cottage had great wifi reception which we've struggled with elsewhere.
The bedrooms were modern, lots of storage and the twin bedroom is set back from the kitchen/living area so we could actually have some peace from the kids at night!
Location wise it was the perfect base. On the owners recommendations we were able to explore the Lizard, st. Michaels mount and a few beautiful beaches. All were short distance which was perfect after our journey down as we just wanted to stay local.
It really was the perfect stay. The cottage was modern yet retained the country cottage feel. It was spacious, child and dog friendly with great owners on hand to help.
We will definitely be returning again. A real gem and great find! Thanks again to Patrick and Tracey.
Greeted by the perfect hosts, very friendly who work very hard to make your holiday special. The cream tea waiting for us on arrival was superb. Cottage was clean and warm (double glazed throughout), arriving Easter weekend the weather was typically British although we did have a couple of fine days later on. Amenities comprised of everything you need for a traditional Cornish holiday, bags of character. Plenty of games and grounds to keep the kids occupied and a reliable Wi-Fi signal to keep the teenagers happy. Mobile wise O2 and EE networks both received signals at the premises. A true dog friendly property (the owner's also have dogs) and their local knowledge is great which is a huge asset along with a massive rear garden/ paddock. Don't forget your doggie bags! Location is lovely and quiet and ideally situated to explore the area only a short drive to some lovely local beaches. We will definitely be returning! (minus crutches)
