We stayed at Swift Cottage from 8th to the 15th July 2017. We opened the door and immediately we fell in love with it. On a big message board was a WELCOME message written by Mel and as she knew it was our Golden Wedding with the help of our Daughters she had left us a bottle of Presecco in the fridge and a card to celebrate how thoughtful of her. The cottage was perfect and a welcome pack was there which was so nice including, milk, Cornish ginger biscuits, teabags bottle of Cornish cider, coffee, jam . In every room there was a vase of fresh flowers the cottage was perfect. We could not recommend this cottage enough spotlessly clean and lots of quirky bits and pieces around. The garden was lovely and lot of thought had been put into it. There were solar lights and electric lights outside making it so peaceful and romantic perfect for our 50th Wedding Anniversary. We would recommend Swift Cottage to our friends and family. we are looking at booking it again next year !!

The Cottage was exquisite, the best we have ever stayed in. The owner, who we had the pleasure to meet, had thought of everything, the little touches were second to none. We can honestly say we felt so comfortable there, we really didn't want to come home! We would recommend it in a heartbeat!
