“A peaceful retreat”

We spent three nights at Swallows. What a lovely time we had - the accommodation was perfect. Clean, comfortable and quiet with our own decked balcony and entrance. Lovely setting and views and very accommodating and friendly owners. An arrival pack awaited us with everything we would need if we hadn't bought our own supplies (tea/coffee/fruit/biscuits etc). Near to Winchcombe (about three miles) which is an excellent base to explore the Cotswolds - also has several pubs/restaurants. Definitely would return to this accommodation when visiting the area again.

Liked best: Being in the heart of the countyside
Liked least: Wifi/internet access was very limited. My husband would have like more access to this. A single hob would have been useful when cooking breakfast..

Warm and cosy with gorgeous views and a perfect peaceful setting nestling on top of the Cotswolds Hills.
Everything you could possibly need from comfy beds to books and a choices of water in the fridge.
We were made extremely welcome and nothing was too much trouble to ensure we had a truly comfortable stay.

“Ideal weekend retreat”
Reviewed December 7, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

people found this review helpful

I stayed at Swallows for just one night as myself and my girlfriend were attending a wedding nearby. The accommodation was ideal - clean, comfortable, large and perfectly positioned for a nice walk the next day. Paul was extremely responsive and helpful when we made our (many) requests regarding taxis etc, which was really good of him considering we only stayed one night. The property ended up being very easy to find and nicely separated from the main house so we didn't feel like we were intruding anyone else's space. We really regretted that we weren't staying longer and aim to be back for a real weekend escape. Recommended!

“A gem in beautiful countryside, highly recommend”
Reviewed December 3, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Extremely tasteful and well equipped studio flat, beautifully warm and spotlessly clean. Rural location, lovely views and walks. Made very welcome and nothing was too much trouble for host Paul. Delightful Cotswold villages and small towns easily accessible. Would highly recommend if you love the countryside, crave peace and the chance to "escape" for a few days.

“Hidden gem! ”
Reviewed November 29, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

This beautiful cosy apartment with its country decor and private roof balcony across the Cotswolds took our breath away.
It's reasonably priced, its immaculately clean, and you couldn't find a more peaceful nest in the Cotswolds.
The owners are lovely genuine people and it's the sort of place that feels separate enough from the house (the apartment is over the garage so not as though you can hear people downstairs.)
We are so glad we found it and 100% fully recommend it!
Btw we had the breakfast option and it was fab. These are considerate hosts who obviously want to make a bit of money but are really just sharing their tranquil space.
