Stayed in the swallow in October 2015. Very friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Very clean B&B, rooms are cleaned daily and they are always warm. Tv in each room along with ensuite, parking outside and lovely breakfast. Would highly recommend.

We enjoyed our 3 nights at Swallow House. It was a pleasant 10 minute walk into town, and the room was clean and comfy. Breakfast was lovely, and our hosts were very welcoming and kind. A supermarket is only two minutes' away, and there is a great Indian restaurant about 5 minutes' walk from the B&B (Kashmir).

I had a wonderful time at this B&B at a very convenient price! The rooms are very clean and cozy. The location is gorgeous, very close to the ocean! Patricia and Jimmy are extremely friendly and excellent hosts. I stayed at the B&B for 2 months and it felt like home! I will definitely stay again and I strongly recommend!
