                  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.


"Prepare yourself to go, “WOW!"

Honestly, the prettiest bedroom I have ever slept in. From the minute I opened the door, it was a visual treasure hunt for my eyes and senses. Not just beautiful, it had everything you would ever need. Check-in was a breeze, all was as it was represented, location was spot-on. Just perfect in every way .


"Amazing cottage in perfect location!"

The cottage is perfect! Exactly as described and more. Tracey has created a real haven at The Sea Swallow. There isn't a thing that hasn't been considered to make your stay here perfect. A really nice touch was that the cottage was beautifully decorated for Christmas which made the place feel even more magical. The location of the cottage is perfect for both the town where we enjoyed browsing the shops and sampling the local ales and the beach were our dog enjoyed his daily runs with the local 'four legged' friends. Tracey provided all the information we needed in a timely manner and it was lovely to have some useful hints and tips before we got there. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a place where you can kick back and relax from the moment you walk through the front door (once you've eaten the amazing scones and clotted cream that are left for you on your arrival)! Absolutely looking to return to this delightful cottage in the near future! Thank you Tracey xx


"A little gem of a cottage!"

We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Sea Swallow cottage. It's a quaint old fisherman's cottage that has been tastefully and beautifully decorated. It has everything you could possibly need for a great holiday. We loved the fact that we were so close to the centre of Fowey and could wander out for fresh croissant in the morning and for a drink in the evening! The beds were also extremely comfortable and made up with pure linen bedding. We will definitely recommend it to our friends.


"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. The cottage is very cosy with a beautifully equipped kitchen if you want to eat in. 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.


"A lovely place to stay"

The location is great and the cottage itself is beautiful and very homely. Warm, spacious and comfortable. Couldn't have found a better place to stay.
