A beautiful Cornish seaside cottage... a special place to stay
Set in a lovely seaside spot by the pretty medieval church The Sea Swallow is tucked away in a quiet nook but just a minute's walk from Fowey's wonderful array of independent shops, great restaurants, galleries and the quay and five minutes to the nearest of Fowey's two sandy beaches.
The cottage is decorated with exquisite attention to detail and is brim full of seaside light and period charm. Everything has been thought of to offer a truly unique and special place to stay.
The Sea Swallow is perfect for a romantic getaway, friends and families seeking the seaside life and sleeps from 1 to 4 guests, with plenty of room in both bedrooms for a cot.
An extra single bed can be provided in the master bedroom for a 5th guest.
The cottage can be rented for short breaks or longer stays and is wonderfully equipped with everything you'll need.
There are two beautiful spacious bedrooms with sumptuous kingsize beds and deliciously luxurious goose down duvets (or feather free if preferred) covered in pure natural linen and Egyptian cotton sateen.
The largest room has a gorgeous window seat with views to the water from autumn to spring. It is designed to be made up as a full size single extra bed, with soft muslin curtains to pull across creating a snug extra space for fifth person to sleep.
There's a cot if needed, too, and each bedroom has a hairdryer, sewing kit and clock. There is a £50 per stay charge for the cot or single bed.
The stylish kitchen is wonderfully equipped including Dualit toaster, Smeg dishwasher and fridge freezer, washer-dryer, microwave and with all the crockery, pots, pans and utensils you could need.
Enjoy a delicious cup of coffee from the Nespresso coffee machine and froth up the milk for a milkshake or cappuccino - some coffee pods supplied but feel free to bring your own.
The beautiful bathroom has a large wet room rain shower and extra deep tub for a soothing candlelit soak. There's an ample supply of thick fluffy towels, snuggly bathrobes and a pair of slippers.
Hidden behind the cottage is a little secluded courtyard garden, a cosy spot for breakfast or to while away candlelit evenings in the gentle Cornish climate.
There are books, WiFi, MP3 dock and iPod loaded with lovely tunes, Smart TV and subscription to Amazon Film so you can cuddle up with your favourite flicks.
for the little ones...
If you're holidaying with babies or small children you can travel a little lighter as we provide a cot with bedding, trip-trap highchair, baby bath, crockery and cutlery, microwave steriliser, food mixer, little step-up, changing mat, anti-door slammers, socket covers, stair gate, bed safety rail, potty... phew!
You'll also find a box of toys, crayons and dressing-up clothes.
Bed linen and an ample supply of towels are supplied, along with fluffy bathrobes and slippers to snuggle up in. There's delicious Nespresso coffee, tea, organic hot chocolate, sugar, tea towels, dishcloths, iron and ironing board, eco-friendly dishwasher tablets, washing-up and laundry liquid, cleaning detergents, hand wash, soap, shower gel, toilet tissue and organic bubble bath.
A delicious treat of freshly baked scones, Cornish strawberry jam and clotted cream welcomes your arrival.
If feathers give you the sneezes just let us know and we'll happily tuck away the goose down and instead make up the beds with our pure cotton anti-allergy duvets and pillows.
You'll find the ancient centre of Fowey lovely and snug so the cottage doesn't have its own designated parking, though there is space to park for unloading by the front door. Free on-street parking spaces are nearly always available nearby and guests always receive a handy parking map showing the best options. The nearest paid-for car park is less than a minute's walk away by the quay and the main car park is about 5 minutes. You may also buy a weekly permit to park in any of Cornwall's long stay car parks, which is very handy if you plan to explore.
Your well-behaved dog is very welcome to join you on holiday though we do politely ask them to stay downstairs and to keep their paws off the furniture. There is a £50 per stay charge for your dog.
The cottage is always meticulously cleaned and left absolutely fresh and spotless for new guests arriving.
A mid-stay property refresh, with clean linen and towels can be arranged. Please let us know when booking, or if you decide you would like a refresh while staying we will do our best to arrange one for you.

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.

A stunning property perfectly located in Fowey overlooking the Church and minutes away from the shops. Highly recommended
Ein wunderschöner Ort, um entspannt das Meer, Fowey und Cornwall zu genießen! Das Haus ist toll, zentral gelegen und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Morgens wird man von einem fantastischen Licht geweckt! Wir alle haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt!!!
Fowey is an ancient, lovely and lively fishing village with narrow winding streets, pretty painted buildings, wonderful eateries and lovely shops and galleries perched alongside one of England's most unspoilt estuaries in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The water speckled with sails, sandy beaches a pebble's throw and some stunning coastal walks on your doorstep, there's no better place to call your seaside holiday home. A short stroll to sandy beaches, exhilarating walks along some of the loveliest heritage coastal paths, kayaking up river for a picnic in the spot that inspired Wind in the Willows, or some truly good food and lovely little shops. The Sea Swallow is the perfect base for exploring many of Cornwall's wonderful attractions or just tucking yourselves away for a cosy break with everything you need just a stroll away. The Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan, Lanhydrock and the breathtakingly beautiful Bodmin moor are nearby. It's easy to see why Daphne DuMaurier fell instantly in love with pretty Fowey and made it her home, it's deep harbour setting nestled into steep green hills rolling out to sea weave some special kind of magic on you.
