Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Superb. Just what we had wanted. Lovely large room, comfortable bed, good facilities, excellent breakfast .... including kippers and welcoming hosts. Very dog friendly and lovely garden. One of the most pleasant places we have stayed in a very long time and would certainly return if in the area again.

Lovely guesthouse. The owner was really friendly and looked after me well. I was on an overnight stop on a bikepacking trip and the outdoor courtyard room was perfect for me to access with the bike. Nice room but knocked off a star for the pillows - a little thin for me. Breakfast the next day was superb - continental and cooked. Perfect fueling!!!

I've stayed at the Black Swan four or five times in the past few years and my stay is always great. My most recent visit was last week alone and the owners are so helpful and kind. They couldn't do enough for me when I was in a bit of a bind. Breakfast was also amazing as usual and the room lovely. I should say that I always stay with my dog and it is the best place to stay with your dog for miles around. We're always made to feel welcome.

Only stayed for one night but would be very happy to stay longer. Its a cracking little place. We stayed in one of the self contained chalets with our dog. There is everything you would need, fridge, cooker, microwave etc etc. It was very clean, comfortable, peaceful and warm and with a pub selling good food only a stones throw away. I cannot rate it highly enough. The price is very reasonable with a wonderful breakfast included. Truly a gem of a place.

This was our 3rd stay at the Black Swan. We stayed in the house this time instead of the outside accommodation. A comfortable, clean room with a good shower. A great breakfast and very friendly hosts. We look forward to our next visit.
