The pine-floored living area is open plan with chunky exposed pine beams and patio doors leading out to the level enclosed garden. It offers loads of space in which to cook, relax and play with all the family. A welcome tray is always laid out to greet guests on arrival, usually including a fresh locally-baked fruitcake to accompany mugs of tea and coffee.

The carpeted lounge area contains a pair of deep squashy sofas (one of which is a double sofa bed), coffee table for board games and a TV with DVD. It overflows into the neat dining area with bookcase, pine dresser, music system and chunky pine table with seating for 6.

Guests are welcome at Swallow's Nest all year round.

“Thank you for a warm welcome and your lovely last 4 eggs (in demand)! Explored the beautiful countryside and coast. Enjoyed one of the walks in your book. Got good weather and went to the Eden Project for a full day out.”
