If you want peace and quiet this is the place. It was our third stay at Swallow, that says it all. It seems like miles away from anywhere, but there are places to visit all in a short distance.

Nice cosy cottage with a very welcoming feel when you enter it, particularly if you are staying during the winter months as we did with outside temperatures below freezing. Nicely equipped for staying in when the weather is bad with plenty of games and books to enjoy, Good quality welcome pack for us humans and the throws to cover the furniture so Read morethe dogs could join you for a cuddle were a very welcome addition. At this location in the winter, expect to see the night sky in all it's splendour. Hide
