Take the second turning on the right signed Laverton, on to DoughMeadow Lane and Swallows Rest is the third cottage in the Terrace on yourright hand side. It is possible to use buses and taxis; however, it is preferable to travel by car. You can rent cars in Evesham. The closest train station is Evesham; Cheltenham Spa and Moreton-in-Marsh are the next closest (20km) and have regular direct services from London Paddington. Cheltenham and Stratford have National Express Coach services. Parking There is parking for 3 cars at Swallows Rest. Our preference is that you park to the rear of the cottage, there is space for 2 cars there. If you have a third car, please park it considerably on the street outside of Swallows Rest.

Summary This beautiful family-sized country house is located off the beaten track in the sleepy village of Laverton. As the name suggests, Swallow's Rest provides beautiful far-reaching views of the lush Gloucestershire countryside surrounding the property - sure to take your breath away! The bright coloured décor and gas ‘coal-effect' fire exudes a real home-from-home milieu in the living room, as do the bedrooms. The county-kitchen is stylishly furnished, equipped with all necessary amenities and more. For larger parties, there's an abundance of space in the cottage. Wake like a king and queen in the four-poster bed or hide away from it all on the top floor en-suite double bedroom. There's also two single bedrooms with TVs on the first floor, ideal for children or adults alike. The town of Broadway with its honey-coloured cottages is just a 2-minute drive from the cottage. It offers a range of different activities for children and adults. Start the day with some excitement at Broadway Playpark, or find a real bird's-eye view of the Cotswolds from the top of Broadway Tower. There's a great choice of restaurants, pubs and galleries to be found in this vibrant town. There are also some fabulous walking routes right from the front door of Swallows Rest, and if you want to try something new with the family, give cycling, fishing and horse riding a go, all very near the cottage.
