We spent 5 lovely days in the Swallows cabin in April. Liz and Gordon were welcoming and provided some essentials and flowers on our arrival. Our dog was made welcome. The cabin, which is well equipped and cosy, has a large field for private use from which extensive views can be enjoyed. At night the stars were amazing. The country smells were wonderful. We enjoyed coastal and cross country walks especially enjoying the spring flowers in the lanes and the beautiful river walk to Colyton which is a very attractive town. The farm is very pretty and there is a good games room, a tennis court and a pool which is open from May. The beautiful seaside villages of Branscome and Beer are close by.
