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.

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.

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.
