Swallows Cottage is the entire ground floor of ‘Weavers Barn,' a 400 year old Grade II listed barn that has been tastefully renovated and transformed into a charming holiday home, furnished and decorated to a high standard. Amongst the long history of different uses the barn has had are, a venue for weaving the original Cornish tartan, a chapel and stabling for coach horses. However now it is a bright, sunny and comfortable cottage with an excellent garden, perfect for relaxing and enjoying barbecues at the end of a day spent on the beach. Situated in the centre of the picturesque village of Mitchell and only a short drive from Newquay, Fistral Bay (centre of the UK’s surfing scene) and both the North and South Cornish coasts, it is ideally placed to visit many of Cornwall’s best beaches, renowned restaurants and major attractions - Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan, Maritime Museum, Trerice House with its magnificent gardens - all within easy striking distance. You will even be welcomed by a delicious Cornish cream tea on arrival.
