person found this review helpful

My husband, daughter (13) and son (8) stayed for a couple of days at Swallows Nest just for a quiet break away. We enjoyed it so much we are definitely going back. Alison and Keith are so friendly and Keith even let the kids go on the quad and drive the tractor! There are lovely walks just on the doorstep...

Management response:

Thank you so much for your glowing review of Swallows Nest. We were glad that we were on hand to be able to spend some time with you and your lovely family. A short visit for you but we are already looking forward to a time when we can welcome you once again, hopefully for a little longer next time....

4 of 5 stars Reviewed 28 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Very comfy and warm cottage, clean and well equipped, owners friendly and helpful, even the dogs who visited, liked the chickens and horse. Weather could have been better but it was November, but still enjoyed our stay. One small thing, a bright reading lamp would be useful in lounge

Management response:

Thank you so much for your lovely review, it was really nice to hear that you thought Swallows Nest was comfy, warm and well equipped. We always welcome feedback and will actively find a more suitable lamp for when you visit us next. Many thanks again.
