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


1 bedroom


Sleeps 2


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.

We stayed as a family of 5 in Rockpool. It was lovely, everything we needed and more really as we don't have tumble dryer and sheep outside the door at home! Beautiful location, extremely peaceful. Easy walk to the beach to Colona for a peaceful play and paddle. Easy access to SW Coast path. Small shops short drive, Supermarkets at St Austell. Bodrugan has a pool which we used every day. The cottage is clean, spacious, Tim and Sally are extremely friendly and helpful (and left scones for our arrival). We will be back. It is a very special place indeed. Thank you. The Smith family.
