“Great Place to base your North Cornwall Holiday”
Reviewed 14 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

My wife, dog and I had a short break in Cornwall this week and chose Swallows Barn at Fenteroon Farm Cottages as our base.
What a good decision that was!
The setting, in the Camel River Valley just outside of Camelford was idyllic and peaceful, yet so handy for the main "Atlantic Highway" at the end of Fenteroon Lane and many gorgeous places to visit just a short drive (or walk) away with Port Isaac, Padstow, Boscastle, Tintagel, Rock, Polzeath and Bodmin Moor all within 10 miles.

The accommodation was lovely. We found it to be very clean, well equipped with all the gadgets and equipment you'd expect to make it a home from home... and the bed very comfy. It was a perfect space for us and our dog.

The owners were very helpful and welcoming and close by should you need to ask for information about the local area - though the cottage was well stocked with maps and leaflets on local attractions.
Camelford is a lovely little village with good amenities too.

It's our intention to try to return next year with friends for another stay.

“Perfect base for Cornwall holiday”
Reviewed 13 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Having just returned from a weeks' stay in the Swallows cottage, I can honestly say that there is nothing more that I would have asked for (apart from more days off work to stay longer!). The cottage is in a great location to explore Cornwall and it is the perfect place to come home to after a busy day. Helen & Nigel have catered for everything that a family might need during their stay. The cottage is spotless and beautifully furnished and the garden was perfect for our needs.
We had a fantastic time and can't wait to retutn with more family and friends!

“A fantastic place to stay,everything you could ask for is here”
Reviewed 3 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Just had a great weekend away, as a couple we regularly have weekends away to escape the teenagers, unwind and recharge. This is a great place in a great location, the cottages have everything you need, very clean and well presented. Lots of information in the cottage, Helen is very helpful and has genuine local knowledge. We are already working out when we can return.

“Relaxing, peaceful, clean and very comfortable cottage”
Reviewed 9 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We have just returned from our week long stay at the Swallows Cottage at Fenteroon Farm. We had a really lovely stay with our two young children, and although out and about most of the days in Bude and other parts of Cornwall, we really loved coming back to the peace and comfort provided by this lovely cottage. The job that has been done to provide a very comfortable home away from home was clear to see and we will definitely be coming back next year!

“Clean, modern & of a high standard”
Reviewed 3 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Helen has created a beautiful little holiday cottage. Unlike a lot of the cottages available in Cornwall, this is specced to a high standard with a modern finish. It's clean and there's lots of great little touches that make it a great holiday experience. The whirlpool bath for instance was a big hit with our 6 year old. Outside, there's a little play area, with slide, swings and sandpit. It;'s very secure so you can comfortably leave the kids playing while you are inside - or even better outside on the top of the range gas bbq. Spare windbreaker for the beach was also provided - this was much used. Best of all was the service - Helen offerred her families wetsuits - which we kept all week - very nice personal service. So - can't recommend it enough.
