Arrived to a very warm and friendly welcome. Accommodation finished to a very high standard. Very clean and comfortable. The homemade biscuits were a nice touch and very tasty too. A good section of locally sourced items were on offer for breakfast, including homemade granola and Berry smoothie to name a few. I would highly recommend a stay here.

My husband and I stayed at Swan Hill House for one night in room 7. Everything from start to finish was excellent. Our stay couldn't have been more enjoyable. A lovely place to stay and really great value for money. On arrival we parked in the dedicated car park and were warmly welcomed by Simon who showed us around and... More

We stayed at Swan Hill for five nights while we attended a course at River Cottage. We had the most amazing breakfast specials using the best quality locally sourced produce. The home made bread, cakes and biscuits just some of those little touches that make the stay with Simon & Libby a good touch above the rest, including the boutique... More

... and *every* stay is excellent. Very comfortable bed, splendid breakfasts (the daily 'special' is always worth considering) and excellent service from the delightful Simon & Libby. Naturally we have already booked for our 2016 spring break.

I could not have chosen a better place to stay, from the moment that I first booked and realised I had booked for 2016 by mistake to the moment we left with our home made fudge the owner could not have been more helpful. When we arrived we were offered tea and cake which I am sure was home made,... More

Simon and Libby are great hosts and their attention to detail couldn't have been better. The breakfasts were amazing, different specials each day and all the food used is locally sourced . Rooms were of a very high standard and thoughtfully finished. Thoroughly recommend!

Unfortunately, stayed here just one night as it was birthday present for my friend ( wish we could, stay there for longer). Everything is kept up the highest standards. Starting from warm welcome, in the house you could smell fresh made cookies :-), the bedroom was large, comfortable and very clean. It had the small touches that made our stay... More

We had been keen to stay here having visited the area before and it had been recommended as being of an exceptionally high standard. We only stayed for a single night and whilst it was pleasant enough and met most of our expectations for a small hotel with hosts who were also extremely friendly and hospitable ( they provided a 'welcome...
