Cottage is comfy and clean if a little remote for our liking. Fantastic views over the countryside and good places to visit nearby. Boscastle is particularly nice as is Crackington Haven.

The cottage was really comfortable, clean and well equipped. The bed was really comfortable! It was a nice place to come back to after a hard days walk and relax. The owner was nice and friendly. The instructions for finding the property were straight forward and easy to follow. We are keeping the details as it is a place we would use again.

A Charming cottage, clean,comfortable,cosy.Quiet location suitable for walkers being close to the coastal path. We found the narrow road to the farm daunting at first but soon got used to it.The owners live next door and were pleasant and helpful when needed. We spent an enjoyable week at Swallows Rest.

Beautiful cottage in a great location. The owners are really friendly and helpful, and we had a fabulous break. The views from the farm are incredible! The cottage was comfortable and quiet, and well equipped. Lots of attractions are easily reached from the cottage, including Tintagel Castle and the Eden Project, as is the coast path.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

The ancient fishing village of Polruan lies just across the river from the delightful civil parish of Fowey, a bustling picturesque town packed with quirky coastal shops, art galleries and restaurants. Surrounded by some of the region’s most enchanting countryside, this pair of Cornish cousins have a truly magical feel about them. Polruan, with its steep hill and charming cottages looking down over the pretty harbour, and Fowey with its timeless maritime charm, are linked together by the Fowey Estuary, a haven of colourful sailing and fishing boats dotted about on the water.

A short drive away are the nearby harbours of East and West Looe with their quayside restaurants, sandy beaches and wildlife boat trips. The village of Polperro, with its fascinating smuggling history and horse pulled tram is a must-see and Charlestown, with its huge square sail ships is famously known as the key filming location for the hit TV series, Poldark. Children will love winding their way through the scenic coastal landscape with the Bodmin and Wenford Railway and for those brave enough, there is ample opportunity to hunt down the mysterious beast of Bodmin Moor.

The beautiful capital town of Truro with its magnificent cathedral and wide boulevards is just over an hour away by car and the newly redeveloped St Austell, home to the Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan can be reached within forty-five minutes. Surrounded by gorgeous countryside and nature reserves, lakes and rivers, the area boasts some of the best sailing and watersports in the UK. If you are looking for somewhere remote and unspoilt, but with lots to keep you busy, Polruan is the perfect choice.
