“Lovely location”
Reviewed 22 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Good location if you are looking for a peaceful break away from the hassles of a busy life. The indoor swimming pool made a huge difference as the weather wasn't that kind. Perfect for families

Very nice and good value. We needed a pool and it is very nice and well maintained. Owners were responsive and friendly. Highly recommended.

“Fab holiday”
Reviewed 2 October 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Great welcoming accommodation at Swallow Barn. The icing on the cake for all of us was the expanse of outdoor space. Although we visited many places nearby we all loved retreating back to the barn, sitting outside or running around playing with the kids - and then sitting again!!. Footballs provided and a goal net. The private pool time was also a luxury. Was very sad to say goodbye at the end of our relaxing week.

“Lovely cottage, superb location close to Suffolk coast and Halesworth town”
Reviewed 27 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We have now stayed in both cottages at Valley Farm - this time in Swallow Barn. Both are superb, fully equipped, nicely decorated and very cosy.

The location is wonderful, ten minute walk to a nice pub/restaurant in Holton and a short drive to Southwold and the coast.

Halesworth town is a lovely old fashioned market town with great individual shops and several good pubs and restaurants as well as an excellent fish and chip shop!

Swimming pool is a big plus and the welcome from Julie could not be warmer.

We would recommend either cottage to couples and families alike. Nothing beats a break in Suffolk!

This is a lovely cottage. We were made to feel very welcome by Jackie and Andrew. There was such a lovely feel about the property, we felt at home and relaxed straight away.

Nicely tucked away, yet very handy for the coastal routes, this cottage was well-equipped and presented to a superb standard.

Extremely clean and very inviting, it really was warm and cosy - especially in the evenings with the glow of the log burner. It is tastefully decorated throughout. The area is ideal for touring Suffolk and we enjoyed some excellent walks in the immediate vicinity and on the nearby beaches. And of course, the heated indoor pool was an added bonus!

Highly recommended!
