    Had a great time at swallow cottage. Very well situated to local attractions. Kids loved playing with the owners dog and seeing the horses out of their window in the mornings. Information pack was very helpful and well stocked. Cake on arrival was great and wouldn't hesitate to book again.

    Nice cottage, spotless, nice little garden. Polite hosts, accommodating even when we arrived late. Not a huge amount in the immediate vicinity but close to lots of places to visit.

    A good secure location in the grounds of a farm. Friendly helpful owners. Plenty to do and see. Kitchen facilities were good as well as dining and seating. My only let down was the shower over the bath which was not very strong and the spray area was tiny which did not do me well at the start of the day. Lovely chocolate cake supplied too!
