    It was a delight to stay at Swallow Cottage. On arrival, we were made to feel very welcome and found the cottage to be well furnished and extremely comfortable. The surrounding area is ideal for walking and the garden perfect for total relaxation. Our grandchildren especially enjoyed all of the toys, games, swings and particularly the sand pit. Swallow cottage is the perfect location for all age groups and is all on a ground floor level so easily accessible for anyone with limited mobility.
