“Perfect stay”
Reviewed 16 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This is the second time we have stayed here, the cottage is lovely, very clean, well equipped with everything you could possibly need. Lovely and warm, plenty hot water. Brenda the owner is very nice, she happy to show the children the lambs and farm. Lots do do in the area and shops close by. Highly recommend and would be very happy to stay here again

Beautiful cottage, beautifully decorated and furnished. So much thought has gone into layout and equipment and owners very helpful and friendly. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending to others and would happily rebook for another stay.

“Great cottage”
Reviewed 17 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Really comfortable and clean cottage. Fully equipped. We stayed for a weekend while visiting family - but could have stayed much longer. Brenda and Tom are brilliant hosts too. Will definitely be visiting again.

“Bright spacious fantastic cottage in a super location”
Reviewed 17 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

I chose this cottage as a base to visit the many National Trust properties in the area. This cottage really delivered, a wonderful conversion, really well kitted out, a lovely place to return to at the end of your day. Fantastic comfy beds, the bathrooms and kitchen very well equipped, spotless and looks brand new. The location really worked, there are so many great things to do within 20 minutes' drive. If you are into country pubs there are plenty to choose from. Brenda is very warm and friendly and my son loved meeting the lambs thank you.
Would recommend 100% and would return, still many more things in the area we did not get round to.

“Beautiful renovation, immaculately presented”
Reviewed 4 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Swallows Barn was perfect for a short break with my elderly parents. The position is ideal for easy access to three counties and there is plenty of interest nearby. No expense has been spared in the renovation of this cosy cottage and I am sure it would be a good spot for a break at any time of the year.
