               A few of the lovely things our guests have said about The Sea Swallow.


"Perfect, no, even better than that..."

Arrived for a weekend away in January with 2 discerning friends. Before we arrived, we received some wonderful tips for things to do in the area which were beautifully written and so the romance began... The cottage was well placed, very near the front and shops/eateries. It was so beautifully furnished and presented we instantly felt relaxed and enjoyed the serenity it offered. We spent a good half hour just walking about saying to each other 'and have you seen this pot/mirror/cupboard/bedlinen - it's gorgeous'. Little touches like fab coffee maker, Cornish Cider stash, bath robes, the pre-loaded ipod made it so lovely we didn't want to go out. My top tips for a Sea Swallow stay: bring enough nibbles/plonk/bread n cheese to keep you going for a few nights, enjoy lazy mornings, lovely walks, fab shops and beachcombing in the day and get back early for a bath, G&T and a read of the paper. In short, Me: 'I wonder if I could send for the children in about a week'; Val 'I'm staying'; Sid 'It's Lush'. Oh, and Fowey's not bad either.



"A beautiful property"

We spent 4 nights in this delightful cottage in Fowey. Everything about the cottage was exactly as we had read on the website. The attention to detail was amazing. The cottage was fully equipped with everything you would want. When choosing where would stay we were unsure which seaside village to choose. We are so glad we chose Fowey. Fowey is a delightful village and we would certainly recommend The Sea Swallow to any fellow New Zealanders travelling to Cornwall. We very much enjoyed our stay. It is a beautiful cottage.



"Superb Sea Swallow in Fabulous Fowey"

Fowey was the perfect choice for the last week of our holiday and Sea Swallow made our time there even more enjoyable. It’s a beautiful cottage that it is hidden away but is so close to everything.  We loved the design and the decorations. From the beautiful attic bedroom with it’s fabulous window seat to the floor boards that have clearly seen plenty of living. The cottage is very comfortable with great beds and a well equipped kitchen and bathroom. Tracey’s attention to detail clearly shows that she wants her guests to have the best time possible. She provided a wide range of information from the logistical stuff like getting there and parking to the fun stuff like eating, drinking, shopping, walking and all the other things you can do in Fowey. The coffee machine was greatly appreciated as were simple little things like clothes washing detergent. Scones, jam and clotted cream waiting for us upon arrival got things off to a great start. Sea Swallow made us feel like we were living in Fowey, not staying in a hotel. Thanks again Tracey, we had a fabulous time.



"A wonderful weekend away"

We stayed at the sea swallow for my mums 60th. The house is absolutely beautiful. Warm, welcoming and stunningly decorated. Tracey has thought of everything, and on arrival, we instantly felt at home. I would recommend this house highly. Thank you Tracey for such a wonderful weekend away



"Fabulous two week stay in this glorious haven!"

You have a beautiful house with all the creature comforts we wanted. We would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Fowey. Perfect position, thoughtful extras, all makes such a difference to the holiday experience.

"Absolutely beautiful"

We have just returned from a long weekend at this wonderful cottage and it more than lived up to all of our expectations, perfect for a relaxing getaway. We found the cottage to be beautifully presented. The decor and attention to detail was exceptional. The location of the cottage was also ideal. Whilst tucked away on a peaceful side street, it was little more than a minute's walk to Fowey's shops, restaurants and seafront. We are certainly intending to visit again soon.



“Lovely cottage in Fowey”

Just returned from a lovely week's stay at 'The Sea Swallow'. The cottage is beautiful and very cosy, equipped with everything you can think of and all of a very high quality. Loved the master bedroom with the window seat and the luxurious bedding. Tracey was really helpful and gave us lots of information about Fowey and the surrounding area. The location is perfect, just a short stroll down to the harbour and shops. We had a lovely week and the weather was kind to us. Lots of good restaurants and pubs. Luckily it was warm enought to sit outside as some of the restaurants do not allow dogs inside. The cottage is very cosy with a beautifully equipped kitchen if you want to eat in. We spent quite a lot of time with our dog on Par Sands beach, which is wonderful for dogs. We hope to visit Fowey again and will certainly stay at 'The Sea Swallow' and would definitely recommend it to others.



"Stunning Cottage"

A beautiful and very comfortable cottage. The cottage was as I had hoped and more. Very clean and well thought out. Great location for the town and walks. Would have no hesitation in staying there again or recommending it to others.
