This was our second visit, and Simon and Libby are keeping up the excellent standards they have set themselves. A warm welcome started with a pot of tea,home made ginger cake, and cookies in the garden with the sun shining, after Simon had settled us into our room. We had a different room to last time, but it was just... More

Stayed here for one night on a business trip. Was given a room on the ground floor. The room was very spacious, finished to a very high standard with attention to detail, from things like fresh milk in the fridge and homemade cookies in a jar, and a modern finish to the bathroom. The owners were very friendly and welcoming.... More

We stayed at Swan Hill House for 3 nights quite recently. Everything from the warm welcome in the car park, the house, the bedroom, to the breakfasts, is excellent. The house is beautifully decorated, our bedroom was large, comfortable, and very clean. The breakfasts are large and freshly cooked, and there is always a "special" which gives a great alternative...

From the moment we arrived we knew that we had struck very lucky with this choice of B and B. Simon met us with a delicious slice of homemade cake and made us a cup of tea, then showed us to our beautiful room where homemade biscuits and luxury hot chocolate and complimentary cold drinks were waiting in the fridge...

Our first non-self catering break for over 20 years. We found Swan Hill House on the internet, where it has a very comprehensive website. We were able to choose our room from detailed descriptions, which included the sizes of the beds - other hotels, take note! Booking and paying the deposit online was very simple. Our ensuite room was large... More
