  • Ms Rigazzi-tarling

    “The cottage is situated in the heart of the countryside with immediate access to fields and footpaths including the coastal path which we very much enjoyed exploring.”


    The local town which includes a well stocked shop and two pubs, is about 20 mins walk via footpaths and small back roads recommended by the owner, rather than taking the main road. Swallows cottage is a haven of peace and tranquility with a beautiful garden and orchard area. The very spacious cottage is well equipped and has everything you need and wonderfully there is no wi-if and minimal phone signal so it is possible to really take a break from work and get away from it all. The owners are very friendly, welcoming and helpful and make themselves available if you need them but otherwise you feel as if you have the place to yourself. We enjoyed the week very much and will definitely return, thank you! :)

The property

St Keverne 0.5 miles.

This attractive barn conversion is one of a small group of cottages in the beautiful gardens of Chywoone Farmhouse, in a secluded rural position, half a mile from the pretty village of St Keverne on the Lizard Peninsula.

An ideal cottage for two, this St Keverne cottage provides a tranquil retreat and is set all on the ground floor, which is beautifully tiled.

The cosy sitting room has a feature stone fireplace and electric woodburner-effect fire, tall beamed ceilings and a dining area which is light and cheerful.

This St Keverne cottage has its own garden area, plus the benefit of being able to wander amongst the well-planted garden and admire the roses.

There is an abundance of fabulous walks on the Lizard Peninsula, village pubs to walk to and many sub-tropical gardens to visit nearby, such as Trelissick and Glendurgan.

The Helford River is stunning, the coastline dramatic, whilst Falmouth provides shopping, eateries and Pendennis Castle.

This St Keverne cottage provides a fabulous retreat off the beaten track but is just half a mile from the attractive Cornish village of St Keverne with traditional pubs and shops surrounding the square.

Note: This property can be booked with Refs. 3998 and 4682, together they sleep 8.

About the location


Helston 12 miles.

On the eastern side of The Lizard Peninsula, the pretty village of St Keverne, lying just 1.25 miles inland, is the focal point for this area, with its village pubs and shops surrounding the village square, and an impressive church spire, at one time used to guide the Cornish fishermen home. From St Keverne, you can easily explore the natural and spectacular beauty of the Lizard Peninsula by car, bicycle or on foot. You will find walled fishing harbours, tiny secret coves, sandy bays and dramatic clifftop walks along the South West Coastal path. Just north is the Helford River, a yachtsman's dream and home to Frenchman's Creek, and picturesque Helford village. A short walk takes you to Roskilly’s Farm, where you can tuck in to ice cream to die for. Further afield, visit Falmouth, with one of the world's largest natural harbours, Pendennis Castle built by Henry VIII, and of course you cannot miss out on a trip to The National Maritime Museum.
