The pool, gym and hot tub are shared with just 1 other cottage and can be used 24/7. If you require private use of the facilities, we can liaise with the other cottage to give you a time for guaranteed privacy. However due to the small number of people using the pool, it's unusual for both cottages to use it at the same time. Larger communal landscaped gardens are also available to socialise, relax and view the array of flowers and exotic plants on display. The cottage has its own private outside sunbathing patio, with dinning area and BBQ. It is fully gated/enclosed to secure dogs and small kids. We're here to help if you want advice on things to do or places to go. Call us or knock on the door if you need anything. The price quoted is to sleep up to 4 people. If you plan to have more than 6 people enter the cottage for whatever reason, then you must ask the owners permission beforehand. We are a quiet countryside retreat, so no loud music after 9pm. Thanks

Girlie weekend break in Swallows Cottage was just perfect. Great attention to detail, spotlessly clean, everything you need. Added bonus of the hot tub and swimming pool. Would highly recommend and will be booking again.

Well appointed luxury stay

Very impressed with the cottage immaculately clean, stylish bathrooms, well equipped kitchen. Fresh flowers, milk, juice, biscuits & cake on arrival is a thoughtful touch. Very clean heated pool & jacuzzi too.

Great base for exploring & country parks to walk the dogs acros the road. Fantastic stay.

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

Lovely stay over Easter with the Family. The accommodation is truly superb and the welcome pack is an amazing touch with everything in it you need. The facilities are superb and the Swimming Pool was great and having changing rooms and its own shower just makes everything so easy. The quality of the finish inside the Cottage is really good and the main bed is honestly the most comfiest beds I have slept on and will 100% be returning for another stay as would be hesitant to go anyone else again after staying in this Gem.

Fantastic stay at The Swallows Nest

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend staying here. On arrival the cottage was spotlessly clean and toasty warm - loved the underfloor heating in the bathroom. Lovely touches such as the generous welcome hamper, flowers, bathrobes and slippers. Fluffy towels and the most comfy beds ever. Even soft toy birds in theme with the cottage for the kids. The pool was fabulous. Loads of inflatables to entertain the kids. Warm enough for me to get in! The hot tub under the stars was a highlight and the colour changing lights in it were a hit with our 5 year old. Chris recommended some brilliant walks - the waterfall glen to the beach was a hit. We felt so rested. Thank you!

Wanted to re book before we left.

  • 5 of 5

Amazing place. Eveything you need. So relaxing and lots of beautiful walks and local shops near by.

We didn’t bump into the other guests the entire time & could always use the pool and hot tub without any problems.

Chris & Erik are lovely people and are doing a great job.
