Discover a quirky interior with superb attention to detail, a wonderful romantic retreat ideally positioned to explore all that Cornwall has to offer.

Quirky and luxurious, this fascinating property offers a wonderfully romantic retreat for two just outside the village of St Agnes. Firmly immersed in its rural past - yet offering contemporary comforts throughout – this unique cottage sleeps two people in one bedroom and welcomes two canine companions. Historic and homely, it’s the perfect accommodation option for romantic couples who want to explore the incredible beauty of Cornwall’s coastline. Spend your days strolling hand in hand along some of the UK’s best beaches, and your evenings cuddling up in front of the cottage’s glowing wood burner.

From the moment you step inside this property, you’ll be impressed by the elegant, bespoke interior. Make your way through to the open-plan living room/kitchen/diner and make yourself at home in the chic kitchen area. Create a romantic meal for two and dine in the intimate dining area. After dinner, enjoy a glass of something cool and crisp on the front terrace (it’s fully enclosed if you have the dogs with you) or head to the lounge area to curl up on the sofa in front of the wood burner. At the end of the day, climb the charming staircase and you’ll find a gorgeous king-size bedroom with a lovely feature window.

Head to St Michael’s Mount (22.5 miles) for a romantic day out. Climb up to the highest point of the bedrock and make a wish. It’s said that if you make a romantic wish while touching the stone it will be granted. Alternatively, jump into a double-kayak at Trevaunance Cove (6 miles) and go on a guided adventure along the north coast. Or head to the outdoor Minack Theatre (33.5 miles), carved into the clifftops overlooking Porthcurno Bay, to cuddle up under a blanket and watch a live show.

An excellent cottage in a very central location in Cornwall, an ideal location for us (2 humans and 1 dog) to plan day trips from, to the coast, to visit a mine or manor. Truro is a nice city and provides for grocery and other needs at a 10min drive. Because of the location the only thing that we somewhat missed was some outdoors seating space. TheRead more cottage has a well equipped kitchen and 2 bathrooms, perfect! I We loved it and will certainly revisit when coming back to Cornwall!! Hide

Swallow's Roost is an ideal location for beaches, places of interest, and pleasant local pubs nearby offering a good dining experience. We chose it because it has a roll top bath in its own bathroom plus a shower ensuite in the bedroom, and 3 toilets. It is attractively decorated, with interesting features everywhere. It is full of character, with Read morenice high ceilings. We enjoyed our week at this tastefully converted chapel house. Hide

Better sound proofing in bedroom to reduce traffic noise! Provision of promised items?

Creatively designed chapel on a fast moving road with narrow drive. Fun stay with issues that could be easily fixed. Needs: newer hob, new pillows that aren't flat, better mattress that does not sag, recycling bins, better welcome folder, clean pans and baking tins, the knob on the shower that turns the water on is hard to turn on, proper clothes sRead moretorage (a few hangers on coat hooks and a low cupboard is not clothes storage), a fan in the airless bedroom as window cannot be opened for safety.

This property is unlike one we've ever seen before - it is really beautiful! We absolutely enjoyed our stay because of the chapel's comfort factor - the dishwasher and washing machine add another level of worry-free holidaying, and the king size bed was great! You are so central to so many lovely beaches too. Chapel Porth was a new discovery for usRead more, and we loved it there...it was only a 15 minute drive away! Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!

Excellent location for exploring all parts of Cornwall. Felt at home immediately. Swallows Roost has a lovely style that ties in throughout from the front step to the fabulous bathrooms. A perfect Cornish couples retreat.
