The property

Swallows Nest enjoys a much sought after position within the village of Morvah, near Pendeen.

With sea views from the kitchen it is ideally placed for exploring all that the Penwith Heritage Coast has to offer.

The footpath opposite the property leads directly to the South West coastal path.

Potheras beach is a 20-30 minute walk away or alternatively park and walk from Pendeen lighthouse This spacious accommodation is equipped with everything a group of families and friends could possibly need during a week-long break. Here, you will find a superb, flexible sleeping arrangement with three well-presented bedrooms to choose from. On the ground floor you will find a double bedroom with a shower room en-suite, whilst upstairs there is a double bedroom and a bunk bedroom, each offering plenty of storage for your personal belongings. Look forward to spending your evenings making the most of the stylish kitchen, equipped with everything you could possibly need to rustle up delicious evening meals for all of the family which can be enjoyed within the separate dining room. After dinner, sink into the plush sofa within the sitting room, where you can tune into the TV and keep cosy in front of the woodburning stove. If you are visiting during the summer months, spend a moment or two within the rear garden where a spot of alfresco dining can be enjoyed, whilst your pets make the most of the lawn area. If you don't feel like cooking one evening, there are several excellent pubs and eating options nearby.

The nearby village of Pendeen has a shop as well for picking up the essentials. Brush up on the local history by discovering the impressive Levant Engine House which features in the TV series, Poldark or soak up the dramatic views from Pendeen lighthouse. Alternatively, a short car journey will bring you to Penzance which boasts superb shopping opportunities or St Just with a good selection of cafes, shops and galleries.

About the location


Pendeen 1.5 miles; St Just 4.0 miles; Zennor 4.7 miles; Penzance 6 miles; St Ives 9 miles; Lands End 11 miles

The charming village of Morvah is situated on the Penwith Peninsula, an Area of Outstanding natural Beauty, in North West Cornwall. The name Morvah is believed to derive from the Cornish Morveth meaning 'a place by the sea'. In addition to the church which dates back to the 15th century, there is a gallery and café in the village showcasing the arts and crafts of local Cornish artists. Just outside the village are several historical sites from the Iron Age and Neolithic times.
An open top bus service stops at the village on a route between St Ives and Lands End. This is a great way to get around without parking worries or a relaxing way to get home after enjoying walking sections of the stunning coastal path.

Perfect for exploring this lesser-known area of the county, there are so many fantastic things to see and do; from exploring the rugged coastline to pulling on your walking boots and criss-crossing the beautiful countryside, with public footpaths at every turn! The beaches in this section of Cornwall are fantastic and there are so many coastal villages and attractions that will keep you busy. Enjoy shopping in Penzance, discover hidden gems in St Ives' many harbour-front galleries, or find the perfect trinkets to take home in the novelty shops of Mousehole. The open-air Minack Theatre overlooking the stunning beach at Porthcurno should definitely go on the 'to visit' list, and you can also enjoy visiting the many filming locations of the BBC's, Poldark. Whether you're interested in a walking holiday, history, an adventure or a relaxed beach getaway, this fantastic area has something for everyone.
