    “The cottage was reasonably equipped, tho there could have been more cutlery.”

    We did take up our accommodation a day later than intended, but no one made any attempt to contact us then or throughout our stay. There were no instructions regarding the operation of the tv/dvd, tho we were eventually able to “muddle” thru with this. There Is no WiFi reception at the cottage & whilst this was made clear in the brochure, nevertheless this is a drawback.

    We did take up our accommodation a day later than intended, but no one made any attempt to contact us then or throughout our stay. There were no instructions regarding the operation of the tv/dvd, tho we were eventually able to “muddle” thru with this. There Is no WiFi reception at the cottage & whilst this was made clear in the brochure, nevertheless this is a drawback. It is not possible/safe to walk from the cottage to either the shop, pub or golf club. The lanes are VERY narrow & of course completely unlit & the distances described are inaccurate. Whilst the cottage was generally adequately clean & tidy, the cutlery/crockery needed cleaning before use. The heated towel rail was not functioning during our stay & there was no information re the operation of the central heating. The hot water supply & shower were very good, tho the water from the hot tap was scalding hot, perhaps a warning to users? The gift of cake & fresh flowers was a very pleasing gesture. R & S Bingham

The property

Swallow's Nest is a smart, split-level, 'upside down' cottage on two levels, 4 miles inland from Looe.

It is situated at the end of a quiet no-through lane, converted along with three more cottages from barns around the courtyard of this former farmstead.

Good for small families, or a couple.

Enter through stable doors and head up a few stairs to the open-plan living/dining room and kitchen area with fresh decor and good light from Velux windows and a wood-burning stove.

Downstairs there are two bedrooms – a double and a pretty single and a family bathroom.

Outside, the cottage has a sunny little sitting area with picnic bench.

Woodland walks from the door (wellies recommended) deer, badgers and foxes often spotted.

Occasional passing tractor on lane.

A peaceful rural location with coast close by and easy access to A38 for exploring further afield.

Farm shop, golf, pub, 1½ miles.

About the location

LOOE

Liskeard 9 miles.

Looe is Cornwall’s second largest fishing port and hence there is always a lively maritime bustle around the quay area of East Looe, which is connected to the quieter West Looe by a seven arched 19th century bridge over the River Looe. You can also catch the river taxi between East and West Looe. East Looe has narrow cobbled streets, twisting alleyways and plenty of tourist shops, whilst West Looe has a lovely outlook across the harbour. Looe’s viewpoint, Banjo Pier, can be reached from the quay and is a great spot to watch the returning fishing trawlers and look across the bay to Looe Island, which can be walked to occasionally at very low tides. The sandy Looe beach adjoins the pier and is very popular with families because of its safe shallow swimming and vast expanse of sand. There is also a great rock pool area at Hannafore that children will love. West Looe has a Heritage Centre that recently opened in the Old Sardine Factory with a climbing wall and a cafe and the delightful Kilminorth Woods have way marked walks through the majestic oak wood, rich in plant, insect and bird life. Apart from beach activities in this part of south east Cornwall, there are many mining remains on Bodmin Moor and in the Tamar Valley and much of the mining landscape has World Heritage status. This area of Cornwall has inspired writers, such as Daphne du Maurier and much of Bodmin Moor has inspired legends linked with King Arthur. There is much to explore in this beautiful part of Cornwall.
