Rowards Cottage & Swallows, Bodrugan Barton

Mevagissey, Cornwall

Sweet holiday homes on a working farm hidden down a winding lane near a secret bay and a quaint fishing village. Hearty walks abound


2 places


Sleeping from 2 – 4


You are a winding-lane away from a secret bay, and a mile from a fishing village with charm. The third generation owners have spent ten years renovating barns at magical Bodrugan: Rowards is a great little bolthole for two – step in to find an open-plan layout and a decked balcony overlooking fields to the sea. All feels warm and cosy: a compact kitchen-cum-sitting room, the bedroom at one end and French windows at the other opening to decking and a fabulous view – you can smell the sea. Swallows is a one-storey barn conversion for four with comfy beds, a practical kitchen, a wood-burner with tons of logs and the sitting/dining room looks out to your private terrace – a tranquil spot for barbecues. Both have digital TV/DVDs for rainy days. Meet the Kendalls’ other guests around the indoor pool – with sauna, just 50 metres away – or hole up in peaceful seclusion here. It’s a treat to be so close to the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan, that glorious coastal path and the little restaurants of Mevagissey; look forward to some of the freshest seafood on the south coast of Cornwall.
