Swallow Barn: Fresh Sea Air, Starry Nights, Log fire, Super Comfortable Bed

Occupying an ivy-cloaked farm building dating back to the 16th century, Swallow Barn is an idyllic romantic moorland cottage, stylishly decorated with rugs, art and photography, books and freshly cut flowers from our gardens.

The cottage is designed for two and is spread over two floors, including the following comfortable and calming spaces:

The Sitting Room is a real sanctuary, flooded by the famously clear Cornish light and warmed by our well-stoked wood burner – with ivory damask sofas and Berber soft wool carpet. French doors lead to a private patio, paved with reclaimed Great Western Railway bricks, with Weber barbecue, table and chairs. The patio in turn leads to a large lush lawn and on through pasture and woodland to the open moor – all on our estate and yours to enjoy..

The Classic Cottage Kitchen features a Cornish dresser, an antique farmhouse table and a well-equipped hand-made kitchen. We can supply freshly picked salad, herbs and vegetables from our organic kitchen garden.

The Bedroom is a perfect romantic bolthole  with a seriously comfortable pocket-sprung bed, dressed in fine cotton linens, and feather and goose down duvet and pillows. It has soft lighting, two sunny windows and soft wool carpet underfoot and lots of books lining the walls.

The Bathroom has a traditional Cornish slate floor, lot’s of soft towels (bring your own for the beach please) and a walk in power shower with Italian mosaic tiles and most importantly unlimited hot water; sorry no bath (Cornish cottages are tricky like that).

The property has its own drive and parking spaces outside the front door, leading to a large entrance room for all your kit, muddy boots,surfboards and coats.

Once your booking at Swallow Farm is confirmed, we will email you The Guide, our insider guide to the Far West, which clues you into the best places to walk, eat and drink, as well as galleries, beaches, gardens and attractions.
