“Boutique!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013

I stayed here mid week for business, and was met by Sam who was lovely and attentive after my very long drive. Swallows Rest is stunning and finished to a high standard with the Willow Room not looking out of place in a boutique hotel. Everything from the kingsize bed, roll top bath, organic shower gel to the continental breakfast is perfectly thought out.
I have a taste for 5* hotels when travelling, but would happily and will be staying here again and have already recommended to friends to stay.

My husband and I booked this B&B last minute (luckily got a cancellation) to stay at after a nearby wedding. From booking to check-out we received first class service from Sam and were made to feel very welcome and at home. The accommodation was superb, Sam and Nick's experience in hospitality was apparent throughout- all the small details you would expect to find from a 5* establishment. The bathroom was fantastic- large rainfall shower and freestanding bathtub with plenty of fluffy towels provided! We enjoyed a wonderful breakfast and left feeling thoroughly satisfied.The only downpoint was that we couldn't have stayed longer to explore the area but we hope to return in the future!

My girlfriend and I stayed last friday night, as soon as we met Sam she was very attentive and a brilliant host. The rooms are finished to a high standard and the Swallow room, which we stayed in, was immaculate, very cosy and comfortable, with the home-made cookies a nice touch. I could not recommend this relatively new B&B more if you want a quiet chilled out countryside B&B experience. It is a real winner and I would certainly book it again.

We stayed here on a Saturday night, whilst visiting friends nearby. This is a top quality 5 star 'Boutique' style B and B, (only 2 letting rooms), very friendly and professionally run, in a lovely old conservation village. We didn't realise how many lovely places there are to visit in the area, so, after an excellent nights sleep (very quiet spot) and a walk through the pretty village, we booked to stay for another 2 nights in a few weeks time!! I would be surprised if this B and B could be bettered anywhere.

Room Tip: Both rooms are excellent.

We had a fantastic time when staying at Swallows Rest! I am reticent to say how good our room, welcome and facilities were as I fear it will be booked next time we want to stay!
Nothing was too much trouble, all was finished to the highest standard, the shower was even better than ours at home!

Room Tip: There are only two rooms both are fab!

We wanted a quiet place to spend some relaxing, switch off time and we could not have found a better place. The area that Swallows Rest is situated in is so peaceful yet is within easy reach of many beautiful places of interest.
The accommodation itself is a credit to the owners and does have that touch of luxury that the description talks about, the only thing that bettered this was the hospitality of Sam, she is lovely.

If you come away from this place disappointed then you are very hard to please. Oh, and the cookies are to die for......

Swallows Rest is one of those rare places where B&B meet luxurious 'home from home' facilities. The room was huge and fitted out to an exceptional standard - the king size bed was particularly comfortable with a lovely thick mattress topper - I slept really well. The bathroom is fitted out with a great shower and bath and lovely large thick fluffy towels. The organic toiletries are a nice touch as are the handmade cookies that were left on the console when I arrived.
Sam is a fantastic hostess and made sure I was made aware of all the facilities, even booking me in for dinner at one of the local pubs. There was a good choice for breakfast and I left in the morning refreshed and ready for the challenges ahead. I just wish I had been able to get there earlier to take full advantage of the lovely surroundings as well.
I will definitely stay again, hopefully for a bit longer than the night and not for work!
