Property code: PENSW

A sweet upside-down farm conversation where two people can escape into the countryside together. An attractive stone exterior shows its history and it's perfectly located for exploring the rugged North Coast of Cornwall. Walk the coastal trail which leads to the unspoilt natural inlet, pretty village and harbour of Boscastle and spend your time on the beaches, wandering gorgeous rural villages and visiting excellent Cornish attractions.

 

Old features have been retained such as the stylish slate floors and wooden beams, while underfloor heating is a luxurious additional extra that you can enjoy. The warm atmosphere of this little annexe will make you feel at home almost as soon as you arrive. Open up the glass doors onto the terrace and let a little light in, from here you can gaze out over stunning ocean views while enjoying a traditional cider.

 

The excellent location means you are half a mile from Buckator Beach and it's only 3 miles into Boscastle town centre. Go surfing at Widemouth Bay or any of Bude's (within 15 miles) excellent beaches. Tintagel with its famous castle is 7 miles south and carry on past that to reach Port Isaac, Doyden castle and the small seaside resort of Polzeath (all under 20 miles).

We had the perfect week at Swallows Rest. It is the perfect mix of feeling remote enough to escape the rest of the world, but enough going on locally for when you want to venture out and explore. Owners say hi and then leave you to it. We will be booking again!

'Swallows Rest' made a really comfortable base from which to explore the area. There is some fantastic coastal walking direct from the property and we made some lovely circular walks by coming back via, mostly, well maintained and clearly waymarked paths. We could not have hoped for better weather. The campsite on the same farm looked well worth a Read morevisit too. Hide

Such a gorgeous little cottage/converted barn - so well equipped: we felt instantly at home. Loved the remote location: we didn't need facilities close by and loved the silence and the dark at night! As other reviews have said, the bed WAS amazingly comfortable. ...I often struggle in beds other than my own, but slept better than I do at home. The Read morebedroom is amazingly cool in the hot summer which was also welcome. The owners were lovely and helpful and easily contactable. Loved our week :-) Hide
