    • “The cottage was amazing! Great secluded location but close to local shops and pubs. Facilities at the cottage were brilliant, clean and the hosts were very helpful and friendly over the course of our stay!”

    Miss Ashby, Harlow, February 2019

    • “Absolutely beautiful place, will definitely be returning!!! Only down point was we didn’t book longer!!!”

    Miss Palmer, Bristol, December 2018

    • “It's not often that we've stayed in a holiday let where each aspect of our accommodation has exceeded our expectation, however Swallow Barn certainly achieved this! From the initial friendly welcome, the scones, jam & clotted cream, through to the quality of all equipment in the cottage - all bases were covered and left us needing or wanting for nothing. The log fire and log fired hot tub were fantastic with a never ending supply of logs, firelighters and kindling. It's very obvious that a lot of care, planning and investment has gone into the cottage and this certainly pays off when you stay there. We both had a fantastic time and enjoyed every minute we spent in the cottage, and would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone who considering it.”

    Mrs Mitchell, Dursley, November 2018

    • “Sykes were really helpful. The photos and description were very accurate which really helps when choosing property and location. The owners were delightful, friendly and helpful. A lovely property to stay in - absolutely idyllic location and a good base for seeing the north coast of Cornwall.”

    Mrs Reeves, Maidstone, October 2018

    • “Fantastic cottage in a great location and in beautiful condition owners Frank and Kay where very helpful ,if we go back to that area of Cornwall we would definitely stay there again”

    Mr Blyth, Bicester, October 2018

    • “Nope everything was brilliant with a little help from Frank with the hot tub!”

    Mrs Bennett, Swadlincote, September 2018

    • “Beautiful cottage, lots of room for 2 people. Fully equipped with everything you could need. Lovely private garden and super hot tub. The owner Frank was very friendly and informative. Fairly close to the A39 with petrol station a few minutes away. Would highly recommend to others.”

    Mrs North, Colchester, August 2018

    • “Couldn't be better !!! We have been lucky to find this beautiful place”

    Mr Naegele, 72141, July 2018

    Mr Pearce, MARKET DRAYTON, June 2018

    • “Ideal location for exploring the area. Lovely , clean accommodation. Owners very welcoming & friendly. Loved the garden!!”

    Mrs Pearce, Porthcawl, May 2018

    • “This was a return visit to this property, which we found amazing before and this time was even better. We cannot find fault with either the property or the welcome which were both first rate. We would return again except we have walked the SW coast path to far in either direction. We are looking next year for a 2 person dog free property in the Camborne area.”

    Mr Harrison, Marlborough, May 2018

    • “This was a lovely cottage within a courtyard of buildings, it had everything you could want for a comfortable stay and although we had not booked the hot tub we were offered the use when we arrived. It was situated just off the A39 making access to all parts of Cornwall very easy. There was a warm welcome with a cake and everything to make tea an coffee including a great coffee maker. What a lovely place to spend a week.”

    Mrs Bell, Chesterfield, April 2018
