Swift Cottage

Ideal for that special romantic time away together, this spacious barn conversion sits in the sleepy village of East Taphouse, near Looe in charming Cornwall. Set alongside a small collection of character cottages, down a long winding farm lane off the road to the famous fishing port of Looe, Swift Cottage is perfect for touring this delightful area or for simply relaxing amongst glorious countryside close to the sea. As you arrive at the cottage you immediately sense the homely welcoming feel that greets you; walk through the pretty garden and enter to find the property has been beautifully finished. Passing through the well-equipped kitchen and dining area, you turn down a step to the hallway where first you have the cosy sitting room with its large comfortable sofa and then down a further three steps to the tastefully-furnished bedroom, which adjoins the shower room. Outside, the wonderful English country garden is a delightful spot to sit and relax in at any time of day and a few steps up from the garden is the sun-kissed patio with barbecue, providing the perfect place for alfresco dining. With Looe and Polperro both only a short distance away and the cities of Truro and Plymouth within half an hour’s drive for some of the best shopping in the South West, your options are endless. For a really relaxing break amongst beautiful peaceful surroundings, in a wonderful part of Cornwall, Swift Cottage is hard to beat for a rural, romantic getaway.

All ground floor. One double bedroom. Shower room with shower, basin and WC. Kitchen with dining area. Sitting room.
