We have stayed at Swan Hill House several times now and Simon and Libby have always been most welcoming. Everything about Swan Hill House merits its five star rating and will make you want to go back again. We have never stayed anywhere which has a "Specials" board for breakfast!

Have stayed at Swan Hill House for 3 nights now on business and the place cannot be faulted in anyway. Super clean rooms, luxury fittings and decor,and little touches like homemade biscuits and fresh milk in the rooms make it worth staying if your ever in the area. I will definitely stay again when in Devon/Dorset.

Following a grotty journey from Sussex, and a wet and very muddy trip to River Cottage, what a joy it was to be welcomed so warmly by Simon and Libby. After showing us our room - very nice indeed, we were treated to delicious home made carrot cake and plenty of tea, (just what the doctor ordered). Our room was... More

We have just enjoyed a 2-night stay and, looking back over the previous reviews, we realise that It has all been said and that it has all been merited, so let us just summarise our comments: Our hosts, Simon and Libby, a lovely, friendly couple. Accommodation, excellent. Meals, excellent. Ambience, excellent. You are not going to find better!

My partner and I stayed here for the weekend while visiting River Cottage - and aren't we glad that we did! We arrived late on the Friday evening, and received a warm welcome from Simon, a quick tour around our room, and we're then left to settle in. The room was spotlessly clean, the en suite bathroom was equally as... More

I spent one night here on 21st April. The only disappointment is that it was only one night. My partner and I would have loved to stay longer. We stayed in room 5 I am not usually a good sleeper but here I slept very well. A very comfy bed which can be rare I have found. A brilliant choice... More

This is the best B&B we have ever stayed in. Beat's a lot of hotel's we have stayed in to. I cannot praise Simon & Libby enough. They work so hard to make your stay really special. The little touches make all the difference, nothing is too much effort. Home made cakes in your room, tea and cake on arrival... More

Lovely couple of days spent at Swan Hill House. Simon and Libby are very friendly and welcoming with tea and cake on arrival. The rooms are decorated to a really high standard with home made biscuits and a mini fridge with complementary drinks. Breakfast was very tasty with a wide range of options.
