Customers’ Choice Award 2018
Situated in a truly rural location, this holiday home provides idyllic accommodation for couples looking to explore the wider region of Cornwall.

Located in East Taphouse, this detached, single-storey, lodge style property is nestled in the grounds of the owner’s home. The spacious, open-plan living space boasts a contemporary, light and bright design, with large corner sofas, which are perfect for snuggling into on an evening. The French doors open out onto the small terrace area with a seating area, which is a great place for al fresco dining.
Swallows Rest provides idyllic accommodation for couples, both young and old, where you can escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. If you are looking for a central base from which to explore the wider region of Cornwall, then this is a perfect spot to choose.
Boasting a central location, there are many key tourist attractions that Cornwall has to offer situated close by, including the fishing town of Fowey and Looe, and the coastal village of Polperro. Also within easy reach are the many beautiful gardens on the south coast. The historic city of Plymouth is just a short drive away, where there are many sandy, surfing beaches on the north coast, including Newquay with its zoo and Blue Reef Aquarium.
Alternatively, why not visit the harbour towns of Port Isaac, where the TV series of Doc Martin is filmed, and Padstow, with its variety of shops, pubs and restaurants, including Rick Stein’s famous fish restaurant. Beach 10½ miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

    Swallows Rest is a generously sized cottage, very well equipped and centrally located for investigating the local attractions

    The cottage is beautifully presented with all mod cons. The living area is spacious and comfortable. There is outside space with lovely furniture to enjoy the sunshine and views. The cottage is within the grounds of the owners property and there is a second holiday cottage in the grounds but you don't feel cramped. There is a lovely big field behind the cottage where you can walk as long as there are no livestock grazing. Well located for access to north and south coast beaches and harbours amongst other beauty spots and places of interest.

    Swallow Cottage is a very comfortable and lovely place to stay. The location is perfect for visiting most resorts in Cornwall. The weather on our visit was quite good except for one day which was a complete washout. Should we decide to visit Cornwall again and i am sure we will then I would most certainly consider Swallow Cottage if available.

    Enjoyed our holiday at the cottage. It was lovely and clean. The only downside to it was it didn't have a washing machine, but it had everything else which was extremely modern. would definitely return again.

    Swallows Rest is a lovely place to stay. It is well located not far from roads to access the north and south coast and most of Cornwall. The cottage is one of 2, built in the garden of the owner, in a small hamlet. There are no facilities in the village, but Liskeard is only a short distance away for food shopping. The cottage is fairly new, quite spacious and well equipped. The only thing I though lacking were some suitable smaller containers to use in the microwave, a large pyrex casserole was a bit big for 2 people! We would definitely stay there again and have no hesitation in recommending Swallows Rest.
