A beautifully presented stone barn conversion, Swallow Cottage is a restful countryside retreat.
Retaining its original beams and rafters, the cottage is light and airy, quietly tucked away from the hustle and bustle of popular holiday hotspots nearby.
The hub of the property is the open plan living space.
Here, the allocated chef can rustle up something tasty without missing out on family time; the kitchen area is located just beyond the lounge and dining area.
There are also patio doors leading to a private terrace directly from the lounge, allowing guests to either dine alfresco or bring the outdoors in, letting the Cornish summer breeze and sunshine drift throughout the property.
Children will love playing in the acre of parkland garden shared with the two neighbouring holiday homes; a fantastic space for a kick around or game of rounders.
Just three miles down the road, the old market town of Helston offers a range of shops as well as a boating lake, swimming pool and the popular Flambards Theme Park.
The National Trust-owned Penrose Estate – a lovely spot for a walk or cycle, leads from Helston down to Loe Bar and the beautiful south coast.
Swallow Cottage is ideally located for couples and small families looking for a real escape to the countryside.
All on one level. Two bedrooms: 1 x double, 1 x twin. Bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and WC. Open plan living space with kitchen, dining area and sitting area.
About the location
Porthleven 3 miles; Falmouth 12 miles; Penzance 14 miles.
Helston lies at the western gateway to the Lizard Peninsula, a large area of downland fringed by a beautiful and spectacular coastline. Helston is a pleasant busy market town famous for its Flora Day Festival and the many stories and legends about the "Furry Dance" are told in the fascinating Helston Folk Museum. Nearby is the Poldark Mine, one of the best underground experiences in the south west and which tells of the widespread mining heritage of this area. Nestled in a tranquil setting is the National Seal Sanctuary on the Helford River, where there is plenty of entertainment watching seals play and feed. If it is thrill rides that excites you, then Flambards theme park will keep you amused all day and also has excellent living history experiences. Further afield is the harbour town of Falmouth to the east and Land's End to the west. Helston is a wonderful holiday destination offering plenty of attractions for the whole family.
