“A lovely little getaway!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We've just got back from the most lovely stay at Swallow Barn, the perfect place for a few relaxing days out in a lovely country setting. The barn itself is ideal, spotlessly clean, warm and cosy, the bed was huge and in a lovely airy big room, with a shower and a big bath to chill out in! There's not a thing our hosts didn't think of... A roaring log fire lit on arrival, fresh milk, bread and home laid eggs! All of the little touches that made a great stay just perfect! Honestly everything you need is there, they really have gone out of their way to make it as comfortable and convenient as possible! Our dog also had a great time, she was able to run around outside and enjoy the country smells and we could relax knowing she couldn't escape! She loved curling up by the fire and was very grateful for the treats and blanket left out for her :) we couldn't have asked for more, we'll definitely be visiting again soon :)

“Wonderful relaxing break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We stayed here for 2 nights in early February and wanted a high end property for a relaxing long weekend. We nearly thought about cancelling because of the flooding in the Somerset Levels where it is situated but after contacting Ali, the owner, were reassured that all was OK at the property.
We arrived to a very warm welcome from Ali and she showed us round the converted cattle shed. It has been renovated to a very high standard with very good facilities. It has all that you could want as well as some extra touches, fluffy dressing gowns, basic food supplies like tea, coffee, milk, bread, butter, condiments and a lovely chocolate cake and boxes of chocolates! Very welcome indeed!
The bed was very comfortable and we had a lovely time. We visited Wells and the Clarks shopping village over the weekend and had dinner on Saturday night at The Devonshire Arms in Long Sutton which was lovely.
We will definitely be recommending Swallow Barn to our friends as it is such great value. Thanks again for a lovely weekend.

“Fantastic place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We have just come home from Swallow Barn and it exceeded all expectations of a great place to stay. The barn is delightful, very comfortable, warm and cosy. The barn is beautifully furnished to a very high standard, from the lounge/diner/kitchen area and upstairs with a six foot bed and a lovely en-suite bathroom. There is underfloor heating and a wood burner which was an added bonus. No expense has been spared on this barn. Ali, Gary, Matt, and Niamh made us so very welcome, nothing was too much trouble for them. We will come back and are recommending swallow Barn to family and friends. We love this area and are delighted to have found this gem.

“Absolutely cute, amazing, comfortable, and relaxing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

I came to this property with my girlfriend for her birthday and New Year 2013-2014, and we absolutely loved it, didn't want to go. The woodburner is amazing when its flared up and makes the barn very cosy aswell as the underfloor heating. There is plenty things to do, even if you wanna stay in and watch films. There's a lot to see if you go for walks, all the propertys around that area are huge - there was even one with a big swimming pool!!. Ali, the owner - was very helpful on our weekly stay, she said if there was anything we needed to go to her, if she was out and about she'd ask us if we needed anything, she gave us extra logs and kindling for the woodburner, and was on the door to welcome us there. We would like to return to this property in the future to come. Everything was there on our arrival such as tea, sugar, butter etc, its very cosy and we had cute nights in front of the fire and the television. I would highly recommend without a doubt, and I wouldn't suggest anymore than what there already is. In my opinion its a barn but like a 5* hotel! :D

“A little gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

What a wonderful stay we had in Swallow Barn. This gem in Low Ham was five star in the comfort stakes and with all mod cons including dish washer and a washer/dryer. The slate floor is beautiful and the underfloor heating kept the cottage toasty warm on a cold November night. The bedroom was larger than expected with a Queen size bed (huge), nice touches included the dressing gowns in the wardrobe and soap and shower gel in the bathroom. When we arrived at Swallow Barn we found that Ali had left tea, coffee, milk. bread,butter and biscuits so we could have a drink before setting off to Glastonbury Carnival. The attention to detail in all the fixtures and fittings makes Swallow Barn an ideal place to stay. As i said in the title, a little gem

“5 Star quality - So romantic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We had the absolute joy of staying here for half term... from the very start Ali couldn't have been any more helpful. On arrival we found the barn to be absolutely beautifully finished, it really is 5 star, there is heated slate floors throughout and a huge cuddley bed. Ali had left out lots of little treats for us and lots of information about the walks and things to do in the area... We had some wonderful days out (helped by the treats and sandwich box that were left for us), and after some advice from Ali, we had a lovely wander up to the local pub one evening which is the most lovely old pub with a log fire.
We cannot wait to come back to Swallow barn, it was the most romantic place especially with the log burner in full swing. You will want for nothing at Swallow barn, it's a real treasure, we cannot recommend enough, it is beautiful!
