We found the owners were very welcoming, .The location & description of the house very accurate .The house was very clean & well appointed , everything you needed & we appreciated finding that they had left,milk , tea & biscuits for us on our arrival.

Fabulous location for those who want to get away from it all and only 10 minute drive to Truro.

Lovely quiet setting in the middle of farm land

This perfect little cottage is tucked away in the most beautiful tranquil Cornish countryside. We were able to enjoy the views and the local wildlife after busy days out exploring. It was central to Truro with its cathedral and quaint little shops and the local beaches nearby were easily reached. We were grateful for the folder of information leaflets on places of interest to visit. However we were slightly disappointed that not all of the cafes/restaurants operate every day, which is surprising being the summer holidays. We both had a relaxing break and will revisit again in the future.

This is a lovely cottage which is very well-equipped, much better than many holiday cottages I've stayed in. It is comfortably furnished. Having the living room upstairs takes full advantage of the wonderful views across the countryside. The north coast beaches are within easy reach. It was a great base while I was working in Truro for a few weeks.

This cottage is really well placed to get to north and south coast. It has a really well equipped kitchen for self catering and is very peaceful. Owners are next door are helpful if you need them. This was the cleanest self catering property we have ever stayed in !

Rather old fashioned property. Overpriced for what you get. It is conveniently located for access to both coasts.

Superb peaceful country location with lovely views from living area, but not far from main road and within easy reach of many places to visit.

The cottage was a great find and was exactly as suggested on the description i.e. an absolute haven to come back to every day after touring Cornwall. The serenity of the view through the upper Juliet balcony window towards the rural countryside was beautiful. This is next door to the delightful and very helpful owners, Tony and Helen’s own property and after the initial show around they give you complete privacy to enjoy a relaxing stay.

A charming, comfortable cottage situated in a peaceful location, close to local amenities, excellent location for touring North & South Cornwall.

Good base for exploring Cornish beaches.

The hosts at Swallow's nest were very welcoming and we enjoyed our stay there. They had fitted a stair gate on account of our little one which was a great help and really appreciated. There were nice touches to include local guide books in the cottage along with a good supply of tea bags (and biscuits). The location of the cottage was excellent as only 10 minutes to Truro and short drive to other points of interest. The kitchen is well equipped and the washing machine in the cottage was also an added bonus. It is probably worth noting that the bed was very firm as were the pillows.

Good value for money and peaceful tranquil location

Quiet location with excellent views

          Location quiet and peaceful.  Situation perfect for exploring Cornwall.

Ideal cottage for people who need firm bed!

Quiet location, clean and comfortable accommodation. The owners were welcoming and amiable.

A beautiful relaxing place to stay.

We were very pleased to have found this cottage in a peaceful countryside location yet within easy access of Truro and the rest of Cornwall. The lane outside is perfect for a leisurely stroll (we saw only one car all week). We will certainly consider returning.

A lovely, spacious cottage in a peaceful location. Spotlessly clean and fresh. The owners are very amiable, whilst affording the guests privacy. We enjoyed our stay here and would certainly book it again. This was a great little find!

Overall a nice cottage with quiet location. May suit older guests more than younger guests.

It looked to be a very nice property (and it was). Lovely and quiet position. It was a very nice break for us.

Great stay in a spotlessly clean cottage. I would recommend it without hestitation.
