The furnished master bedroom benefits from a king size bed, with comfy pocket sprung mattress and an ensuite bathroom. The remaining furnished bedrooms are twin rooms which all have comfortable pocket sprung mattresses also. Each cottage benefits from underfloor heating, flat screen TV’s, bluetooth sound system, and free WIFI. You will also find a guide book in your cottage with helpful information for your stay and recommendations for things to see and do in the area. High chairs and cots are available on request. The site has a large laundry room where washing facilities are available. Well behaved pets are welcome. A small pet service fee of £20 per pet is requested, with a maximum of 2. Please read our terms and conditions regarding pets. Interesting fact: The arched barn that houses Swallows Swoop and Rats Retreat formed part of the early 19th century farm building complex on the site. This farm complex is important because it is a good example of a planned “model” farm, thought to be from the turn of the 19th Century. The form of the Arch Barn is of particular interest because it is a rare surviving example of an arcaded cart house, with granary over. This form is specifically mentioned in relevant literature as being an innovative building type associated with the Grafton Estate. The Duke of Grafton was prominent in the agricultural improvement movement and examples of Grafton estate farmsteads therefore may be of national importance.More
