We returned yesterday from a week at swallow cottage. We were greeted with smiles and cup cakes and felt the tension immediately drop away. Myself, my husband and my son of 13 months enjoyed daily animal feeding with Jeremy and Elizabeth. All guests going off together just before breakfast to feed the pigs, chickens, turkey and many more, added to a community feeling that felt as if you were visiting family. We hadn't had a holiday in over a year and this was the perfect location to relax and forget about the world. Waking to the beautiful views all around and sleeping in the millions of stars as night, and all of the above made our stay magical. Highly recommend anyone with children or if you just want to hide away from the busy world. This is one holiday we will hold in our hearts and go back again and again.
