P42 - Swallows Barn
Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
A mile west of Wadebridge, along the hedgerow lane leading to the downs, a cottage converted from a barn attached to an 18th cent. cottage which was once a hostelry for travellers along the Pilgrims' Way (route from Padstow to Spain). A footpath (1¼ miles) running alongside the cottage takes you to the Camel Trail. To the front, a neat, enclosed garden with table/chairs and barbecue, and, beyond, grassy space for ball games, all surrounded by meadows.
The interior has been well thought through and stylishly done. Glazed door into open-plan living/dining/fitted kitchen (washing machine, microwave) with butler sink, oak worktops and floor, leather sofas, TV/DVD/video and exposed stonework. Smart ground-floor bathroom (suite plus bath-shower). Stairs (stairgate) from centre of living room up to two bedrooms – a double (5' bed) with long tranquil rural views, and a twin. A smashing cottage.

The West Country region
Cornwall's north coast: from the river Camel north to Bude and on to Morwenstow and the highest cliffs in the West Country, it is a mixture of great cliffs and beaches. Walking (coast path) and bird-friendly cliffs (usually no road near): peregrines possible. Great sand/surf beaches at Polzeath, Trebarwith, Widemouth Bay, Bude and Sandy Mouth; sandy coves at Port Gaverne, Bossiney, Crackington Haven, Duckpool, and others less accessible; Rock, also sandy, is the place for watersports, including sailing on the Camel estuary; very fine golf course (St Enodoc); mini-fjords at Port Quin and Boscastle. Port Isaac is very pretty round its cliff-enclosed harbour.
The well-worth-riding Camel Trail cycleway (bicycles for hire) follows the river Camel from Bodmin Moor to Padstow. Pencarrow is a beautiful house with wonderful garden. Tintagel has a ruined castle (King Arthur's?) on a wild headland. St Juliot church was restored by Thomas Hardy and 'a pair of blue eyes' nearly fell down a Crackington cliff. Bodmin Moor, its highest hills quite mountainous, is only a little way inland and Blisland, on its northern edge, is one of Cornwall's prettiest villages - makes a change from sea: so does lovely Lanhydrock (see Cornwall's 'Med'). Not far to Eden (see South Cornwall).
Wadebridge: lively, small market town, plenty of shops, good restaurants, cinema, leisure centre (indoor pool), fine medieval bridge on the river Camel, where bicycles can be hired for the Camel Trail. Padstow, 6 miles.
