About this location

The Cornwall region

Swelle Cottage is a perfect, cosy retreat for exploring Cornwall, the UK's most popular holiday choice. There is easy access to Cornwall's most popular coastal and inland destinations. Boscastle, Bude, Crackington Haven, Tintagel, and Bodmin Moor are but a short drive, and the Eden Project, Minack and Flambards an easy day trip.


Bude is a haven for surfing for both the experienced or novice. Alternatively enjoy the sandy beaches, rockpools and sea pool and beautiful coastal paths. The town is busy with restaurants, bars, tea rooms and shops - small but thriving and welcomingh with a canal running by and meeting at the River Neet at Summerleaze. Here, at the famous lock gate here you have the perfect vantage point to appreciate the beautiful sandy beach with its renowned natural sea pool. Children for generations have learned to swim here. Beyond this lovely place there is even more to enjoy with Crackington Haven, Boscastle and Clovelly all only a short drive away. For places of historical interest Tintagel is also nearby. The Eden Project is less than an hour away and is a great venue for live entertainment as well being an amazing experience with its biome ecosystems. I could just go on and on so I would just suggest a visit!

Boating (rowing & pedaloes, kayaks or sea trips); ten pin bowling, indoor 'Splash' pool, live music, and lots more!

Bude Carnival, Jazz Week, folk festival, Lifeboat Day with firework display...

Lundy Island, Boscastle, Port Isaac, Milky Way theme park, stunning coastal walks!

For the 26th successive year the festival returns with over 30 jazz impresarios from around the Uk, the USA and Holland! Over 30 artists playing in over 10 venues, with a street parade, a jazz picnic and much more to see and hear!
