About Swallow's Nest

Swallow's Nest is a bright, modern holiday home with space for up to six people in three lovely bedrooms with a layout that suits a contemporary family lifestyle. The cottage is one of seven superb self-catering properties at Higher Menadew Farm, all of which are rated 4 or 5 Star Gold standard and which can be booked on their own or together with other cottages on-site to accommodate extended families and friends.

Higher Menadew is close to Luxulyan village and within easy reach of St Austell with all of the shops and amenities you need for a relaxing self-catering holiday. The farm is peaceful and quiet, yet only a few minutes from the A30, so it is simple to get to favourite places like the Eden Project, which is only a 10-minute drive from the cottage. Other attractions within easy reach include the National Trust Lanhydrock House and Gardens, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, the Camel Trail, Charlestown with its tall ships and links to Poldark, the harbour town of Fowey, Mevagissey and Tintagel Castle.

The cottage's location in central Cornwall makes it easy to reach beaches on both the north and south coast. Head north to Padstow, Trevone, Mawgan Porth and Watergate Bay; or south for Polkerris, Pentewan and beaches facing St Austell Bay. If you enjoy walking then you could not have chosen a better holiday destination. There are beautiful coastal and inland footpaths and a variety of mountain bike routes with something to suit every ability at Cardinham Woods and Lanhydrock.

The amenities on site are excellent. You may find that you can't drag the kids away from the games room or the swimming pool. Younger children love the chance to feed the ducks and the chickens, or to give the owner's pet Kunekune pigs a scratch. There are swings and a playground, a big area of lawn for playing football and other games, and a trampoline.

You can find out more about the local area and the other cottages at Menadew Farm by clicking through to the owner's website.
