Holiday Rental House
Described as 'absolute bliss' and 'wonderfully peaceful' by some of our previous guests, The Swallows offers true tranquillity near the village of Abbotsbury, a short drive from the seaside town of Weymouth and the picturesque Jurassic Coast. We have seven self-catering cottages in total forming Character Farm Cottages and all stand on our beautiful and extensive working dairy farm where we provide a wholesome family holiday experience rare in modern times. The Swallows is available for weekly holidays all year and for off-season short breaks. It is near some of Dorset's most spectacular attractions and only a mile from Chesil Beach which can be seen from most of the farm.

We have seven self-catering cottages in total forming Character Farm Cottages and all stand on our beautiful and extensive working dairy farm where we provide a wholesome family holiday experience rare in modern times. The Swallows is available for weekly holidays all year and for off-season short breaks. It is near some of Dorset's most spectacular attractions and only a mile from Chesil Beach which can be seen from most of the farm. The Swallows Cottage offers home-from-home comforts for a holiday you can take at your own pace. At the cottage you're welcome to enjoy winter evenings in front of the open fire, or to spend summer mornings sipping your coffee on the patio. You can take a slow walk to the beach, enjoy a fantastic family days out to Lodmoor Country Park or stay right here on the farm to feed the cows and watch them being milked. The Swallows is a cottage full of character, with those homely touches that ensure a comfortable and convenient stay. It's a short walk from the coastal path offering breath taking views of Chesil Beach, and it sleeps four for an unforgettable and refreshing stay by the wonderful Jurassic Coast. Our bright country cottage contains all you need to enjoy a holiday or short break in Dorset. Cottage furnishings are comfortable, and the well-equipped farmhouse kitchen includes all the essentials with a pine dining table for four. A sofa and two armchairs provide space for the whole family to relax by the fire, and you'll be able to watch your favourite shows and movies using the flat-screen TV and DVD player. Guests sleep in one twin bedroom, and in a second bedroom with a double zip-and-link bed to be converted to a second twin room if required. The bathroom has both shower and bath facilities, and the property includes plenty of storage room including a built-in wardrobe and airing cupboard. You'll find on-site parking adjacent, and you'll have access to the communal Old Stable containing shared laundry facilities, a wireless internet network, table tennis and table football facilities and a selection of games and books. Even teenagers will find plenty to keep them busy! More

Well equipped, pretty cottage complete with books and toys. Enclosed child- and dog-friendly garden. Beautiful location. My only tiny quibble is that I prefer a proper double bed to joined singles. Would love to return!

The Swallows is a two-bedroom semi-detached cottage in rural Dorset. It's only a 10-minute drive to the bustling seaside town of Weymouth, so best of both worlds. The house is pretty, airy, comfortable in size and furnishings. The kitchen is very well kitted-out (decent knives,...More

About the neighbourhood
There is plenty to do in the local area. The cottage is surrounded by open farmland which you are able to roam on - ideal if you bring a four legged friend- and the Coastal Footpath literally runs through our farm, Weymouth is a couple of miles to the east of us and has a lovely sandy beach with clean shallow water, ideal for little ones. To the west you find the village of Abbotsbury, famous for its historic Swannery and sub-tropical gardens. During Easter time you can visit the Swannery and watch the birds hatching! A little further on is Westbay with its dramatic Jurassic cliffs which featured heavily in the crime series Broadchurch. Lyme Regis is worth a visit and you are almost guaranteed to find a fossil. We are spoilt for good pubs in the area and some excellent local fish restaurants.
