The property

Situated in an attractive courtyard just a short drive from many hot-spots including Porthleven and the beautiful coastline of the Lizard Peninsula. Swallow Cottage is perfectly positioned, off the beaten track amidst scenic Cornish countryside.

The bright open-plan barn conversion has original beams and rafters and comfortable living and dining areas and kitchen to one end. Patio doors lead from the living room onto a sheltered patio perfect for barbecue magic, beside a small walled terraced garden with an acre of parkland garden which is shared with the two neighbouring properties, offering space for children to fly kites, play football or make use of the indoor table tennis.

The ancient market town of Helston is three miles away and has much to offer, with a short-hole golf course, a swimming pool and sports centre, a boating lake, tennis courts and Flambards theme park. Discover the superb beaches and hidden coves with caves for exploration at low tide - Praa Sands and Church Cove are simply breathtaking, with azure waters and white sandy beaches. Explore the inland and coastal footpaths and experience the exhilarating views from the granite cliff tops.

Vibrant Penzance has something for everyone or enjoy a bite to eat or sample the fine Cornish ale at Marazion beach, overlooking the mystical St Michael's Mount with fortress pointing skywards. The ever-changing seascape of windsurfers and sailing boats will entertain you whilst you relax or go rock-pooling. Venture across, by ferry or by foot over the cobbled causeway at low tide and explore the pretty harbour with cottages, restaurant, cafe and shop. Falmouth, famous for its seafaring heritage, harbour, Henry VIII's Pendennis Castle and National Maritime Museum is peppered with galleries and gift shops, traditional inns and mouth-watering eateries set along characterful streets. Set adjacent to The Old Farmhouse (Property Ref. 959188 you may wish to book these together to accommodate large groups)
