Set amidst open farmland and wooded valleys, Swallows Nest is a most welcoming and comfortable barn conversion in a quiet and peaceful setting yet only a short drive from the picturesque south Cornish coast where you can discover charming fishing villages and towns, hidden coves and bays and sheltered river estuaries. With the ever popular south coast footpath easy to access and countryside walks right from your doorstep, this is a perfect little cottage to relax in at any time of the year. Nestled on the edge of a courtyard shared with four other cottages, including Brambles (4136), this semi-detached cottage offers reverse level accommodation for up to three guests.
The light and airy open plan living-room on the first floor is sure to be the main focus of your stay. The breakfast-bar beckons you to take a perch for morning coffee, a leisurely breakfast or perhaps a glass of wine in the evening while keeping the cook entertained as they prepare dinner. In the cosy sitting-area you are sure to curl up with a good book or simply toast your toes in front of the wood-burner. Or if you want to make more of the great outdoors, take your meals on the terrace as you enjoy the sounds of the countryside and watch the sun setting at the end of another great day.
This is a great spot for enjoying all that this part of Cornwall has to offer. Spend time wandering around the traditional harbourside town of Looe where you can browse around the shops and galleries, join a fishing trip, indulge in some good old fish and chips or hop over to Looe Island to discover rare plant and wildlife. The pretty fishing village of Polperro, a favourite with artists, offers a more olde world charm, and a little further down the coast is the exclusive waterfront town of Fowey. A day at Mount Edgcumbe Park with its Tudor house, beautiful gardens, miles of walks and artisan workshops will be a delight and if you want to spend a day on the beach head to nearby Seaton and Downderry.
