About & Contact

Superb, spacious and detached barn conversion.

Swallow’s Nest is located in the ancient, peaceful hamlet of Higher Menadew set in the beautiful Cornish Countryside and ideally situated in mid Cornwall for exploring and enjoying all Cornwall has to offer; close to the outstanding Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan, Lanhydrock, Fowey, Mevagissey, Charlestown, Bodmin Moor, and the fabulous north and south coasts and much more.

This superb barn conversion is wonderfully welcoming. On entering the cottage the impressive and inviting sitting room, formerly the old cart house, leads off the hall to the left. The fabulous high vaulted ceiling with exposed trusses, traditional wooden flooring, log burning stove inset in a lovely feature fireplace, and comfortable soft sofas make this a real “home from home” where it is so easy to relax and unwind.

The separate attractive kitchen/dining area, also with high vaulted and beamed ceiling, is light, bright and fully equipped and has a pine farmhouse table to enjoy your mealtimes around.

The pretty bedrooms lead off the hall and occupy the attached former stables, all with beamed ceilings, traditional wooden floors, luxurious pure cotton linen and pocket spring mattresses. There are two twin bedrooms on the first floor and a double bedroom on the ground floor.

The stylish ground floor bathroom has a P shaped bath with plenty of hot water for a refreshing bath or shower, and there is an upstairs cloakroom. There are two flat screen TVs one in the sitting room one in the double bedroom. Full central heating ensures year-round comfort.

You will love the excellent range of facilities including indoor pool, games room, outdoor play and space, comfort and serenity, and families with younger children will appreciate the nursery equipment helping you pack lighter.

You can wake to the sound of birdsong, enjoy a swim in the heated indoor pool or simply relax and unwind in this tranquil location; the sky is dark at night so you can see the stars too! There are good eateries within a short drive including public houses, super fish and chips, and restaurants.

Swallow’s Nest will make you feel at home instantly, able to relax and unwind, and enjoy and explore Cornwall.

Reviews for Higher Menadew Farm

Tripadvisor logo

Meet the owner

Anita or Andrew Higman

Andrew was born and bred at Higher Menadew, his parent’s having moved here in 1944, and Anita originates from London. Higher Menadew Farm is set in the peaceful Cornish countryside and we feel very fortunate to be able to live and work in such a beautiful county. Our central Cornwall location means that we are within easy reach of all that Cornwall has to offer and we especially enjoy the fabulous coastline. We have walked all Cornwall’s coastal path, all 296.2 miles, along with one of our Labradors, Archie, and the vistas are endlessly stunning. We value the environment. Our all-grass farm on which we rear beef cattle, the dairy herd went in 1996, is deliberately run with low inputs to encourage traditional grasses and our hedges are overgrown to encourage wildlife. We are members of the Cornwall Sustainable Tourism Project and business members of Cornwall Wildlife Trust.
