Property code: OC-P00288

A sleek brick barn conversion boasting tranquil country vistas and set on the fringes of Porthcothan on the North Cornish coastline. This romantic abode is a wonderful base for couples seeking a restorative getaway by the sea. Embark on a morning stroll along the magnificent stretch of dune-backed sand at Porthcothan Bay (1 mile), before tucking into an al fresco spread of warm pastries and fresh coffee on the elegant slate patio.

This inviting cottage features an airy interior styled in bright neutral tones with rustic stable doors and coordinated soft furnishings. Slip off sandy shoes at the door before stepping into the light-flooded lounge. Prop open the patio door then recline amongst the plump throw pillows as you sip a tipple. On cooler evenings, bask in the warmth of the wood burner effect electric fire and unwind with a film. Mark your special occasion with an indulgent dinner in the stylish kitchen/diner. Rustle up a feast on the wooden worktops in the chic shaker kitchen then pop a chilled bottle of bubbly. Plan out the perfect Cornish itinerary as you settle around the intimate dining table or perch with a morning cup of coffee. Enjoy a relaxing rinse in the en-suite shower room before sinking into the soft sheets of the adaptable super-king/twin bed. Outdoors, soak up the serene surroundings from the patio or stargaze beneath the twinkling night sky with a drink in hand.

Embark on a breathtaking cliff-top saunter along Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps (3 miles) overlooking the beautifully rugged shoreline. Sample local craft beers and scoff nibbles at the Padstow Brewing Company Tasting Rooms (4.5 miles) or set sail from Padstow harbour (5 miles) to forage for fresh oysters on Porthilly Beach.

Swallows was clean, comfortable and well equipped. We really couldn't fault it. The location was great. Lovely and quiet but only a short walk to the beach.
