“Lovely location, lovely hosts”
Reviewed 22 September 2015 for a stay in April 2015
person found this review helpful

For the second year running we stayed at Swallows Retreat and had a wonderful time. The owners, Kath and John, are excellent hosts and very friendly. The cottage is a little quirky being upside down. It was spotlessly clean and well equiped. There are no local shops of note and a trip to Falmouth is necessary for a big shop. We had a lovely time there and will definitely be back. Ponsanooth is very handy for all the Cornish attractions (though we thought Land's End was extremely tacky). For St. Ives, don't try to drive in, park at Leland Saltings and get the excellent train in service along the estuary (stunning scenery).

Thank you for your feedback following your holiday earlier this year at Swallows Retreat and glad you had a wonderful time and found this lovely cottage to be well equipped and spotlessly clean with a warm welcome on arrival. I hope you had a lovely time visiting the local attractions and took in all the glorious scenery along your journey to St Ives. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the near future.
