Swallow Cottage Description

Charming Swallow Cottage is a higher standard mid-terraced stone cottage in Morwenstow hamlet, near Kilkhampton, 5 miles to Bude beaches, North Cornwall. Under 2 miles by road from Coombe Valley Duck Pool beauty spot with sandy beach. A lovely National Trust footpath walk leading from farm, through Coombe Valley, to Duck Pool beach. The holiday cottage was converted from an 18th century barn and is situated in a quieter rural position away from road traffic at the bottom of a short farm driveway. A traditional dairy farm. There is a good size enclosed lawn (visible in photo). Approx a 5 minutes stroll to free fishing on the farm’s 2 ponds, 1 of which dates back to medieval times and earlier. One pond (approx 66 yards long) was restocked with coarse fish (tench, golden rudd & carp) during 2010. Tench up to 3lbs and carp up to 10lbs. Fun fishing (not for serious fishermen). The second pond, which was originally used as a carp pond by local monks back in the 12th century and is one of the oldest in the country (featured on a T.V. programme) has been set aside as a nature sanctuary, often hosting migratory birds such as ducks. What makes the ponds so attractive is that they are in a wooded setting, making a lovely venue for picnics, fishing, or just to enjoy the scenery. There are also farm woods to stroll in & a farm play field with goal post, swings, etc. Parking space in front of cottage and in driveway.
