Stayed at this quaint little place over the August bank holiday weekend.When we arrived we were greeted and made most welcome by a very pleasant young lady, who, as our room wasn't quite ready (we had arrived rather early) offered us a pot of freshly ground coffee and the chance to take the weight off our feet. Shortly after we were shown to our room by our host John. The room was lovely and we had a great view over the lake and the surrounding countryside. I really couldn't find anything to fault, having read a negative review earlier I can only think that some people really do need a reality check! After checking in we took a walk along the lake front over to The Wine Press for some lunch. Then on the way back we called into the small arcade and the Cottage gift shop before returning to get ready for an evening at The Beach, which is just across the road, later we took a night time stroll along the lake to release a couple of Chinese lanterns in celebration of our first anniversary. In the morning we were greeted by the lovely Lisa, who provided the biggest ever breakfast which again cannot be faulted, enjoyed it very much along with the chit chat that had us all in stitches. After breakfast we went for another walk along the waters edge, feeding the ducks and geese bread that we'd brought along with us, We really enjoyed the stay, in fact we enjoyed it so much that we've decided to return regularly and are about to book again right after posting this review!

We (couple in our 50's) stayed here for 1 night. Upon arrival we were greeted at the desk by a lovely lady who was polite, helpful and with a lovely smile. The room we had was overlooking the lake, it was clean, tidy and very airey. I had read reviews about the filling of kettles and the lack of a towel rail. Fill the kettle using a cup under the tap, and hang the towel on the hook on the back of the door, then get on with your life. All the staff we met were very helpful and couldn't have been nicer. We had a nice afternoon tea in the secluded garden, before a walk around the lake which is opposite the B&B. Parking is in the Italian restaurant car park next door, for which you are given a voucher to display on your dashboard. Breakfast was simply wonderful, freshly cooked full english, and cereals if you wanted. All this at the very reasonable rate of £50 per couple.The road was quite busy and the ducks did quack quite loudly, but I really dont know what the owners can do about that! I really dont understand what there is to complain about, I would have no hesitation in recommending this lovely B&B.

Room Tip: Dont know if there were any rooms at the back, but it would probably be quieter

Swing Cottage is right across the road from Lake Hollingworth, and Lisa and John are great hosts! Other reviews have complained of it being "dirty"... we didn't find that to be true. If we had a criticism, it would be the lack of a place to plug the supplied coffee pot in, and the lack of a towel rack to hand damp towels on to dry. Neither is worth more than a bit of a shrug and moving on with life. We very much enjoyed our stay, and our conversations with Lisa who is a charming and attractive hostess - as well as making a very nice breakfast! If we ever visit the Hollingworth Lake area of the UK again, Swing Cottage will be our first call!

We chose this B&B due to its award winning status on the web but having stayed I cannot imagine what the award could be for. On entering the small hallway with the well worn carpet and air of dust the lack of attention became apparent and this was continued throughout and into the rooms. The bed was very comfortable but there was no mattress cover to protect it. There was dust on the skirting boards, doorframes, bedframe and the curtains looked dirty. The carpets were in need of a change and the tiles in the bathroom by the toilet were grimmy, the mirror looked as if someone had flossed their teeth but it hadn't been cleaned. There was no where to hang the small towel provided which wasn't changed in our four day stay.
There was plenty of tea and coffee supplied but no herbals in the room. The kettle wouldn't fit under the tap in the bathroom so getting water into it was difficult.

The loction is good, near some fantastic walks although a good 15min walk into the town. The pub at the end of the road serves excellent food. Unfortunately this B&B needs a serious overhaul to provide adequate clean and well serviced rooms to paying guests.
