Lovely comfortable conversion with everything needed for a pleasant stay. Made to feel very welcome and looked after. Very peaceful spot and it was a great place to relax. Handy for Dartmouth, Kingsbridge, Salcombe and Bigbury.

“Something for everyone!”
Reviewed June 24, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My family and I had a fabulous time staying in Swallow Barn - one of Judy and Mike's delightful cottages. With a teenager, a tween and a younger child there was something to keep everyone entertained. We all appreciated the spacious play area (with football goal posts) and the children had fun in the playground, chatting to the inquisitive alpacas and helping to feed the busy chickens who provided us with the most delicious eggs.

Our welcome pack was wonderful - homemade bread and scones, fresh eggs, milk, plus other immediate necessities for which we were very grateful. The cottage itself was beautifully furnished and very well equipped with everything we needed. It had just the right combination of cosy and luxurious. The location was very handy for local sightseeing and exploration, including Salcombe and Dartmouth, two of our target destinations.

Overall, a brilliant place to stay!

“Shhhhs... This is a great place to stay but keep it quiet or it will get too busy for us to rebook”
Reviewed June 23, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We really enjoyed out short stay here and were made to feel so very welcome .. the big bonus for us was how dog friendly and relaxed the place is .. our pooch even became quite enamoured with the owners equally friendly boxer ! Facilities were first class at Swallow Barn and we were most comfortable .. can't really think of anything to complain about. Looking forward to a return visit.

“Ticked all the boxes!”
Reviewed May 20, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

From the welcome cream tea, to the well equipped cottage, to the helpful hosts, to the glorious South Devon countryside, Higher Hendham Cottages ticked all the boxes for our short break. I couldn't recommend them more highly to anyone! The only downside was having to leave....

“The Perfect Place To Stay”
Reviewed April 13, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

After a long journey it was lovely arrive at Swallow Barn to a warm and friendly welcome.
Beautiful surroundings with chickens and alpacas and a nice play area for children.
We found Swallow barn to be very clean, inviting and comfortable, catering for all our needs.
We cannot think of anything missed out or that we would change in any way.
It was a lovely Easter break for us, our two teenagers and 10 year old and our dog.We all loved it.
Thank you Judy and Mike for a lovely stay at Swallow Barn, all your efforts were realized and appreciated.
Anyone choosing to staying here will not be disappointed.

“Excellent holiday location with great facilities”
Reviewed April 10, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Swallow Barn is an excellent place for those seeking to get away in a peaceful and relaxing environment. The facilities are just as described.The kids thoroughly enjoyed using the play area to the extent that they abandoned their gadgets throughout our stay; my son especially got involved feeding the chickens every morning. We visited Bantham beach, Woodlands Amusement park (Totnes) and went to Kents Cavern in Torquay, all within easy reach. Our stay was made even more pleasant by our excellent hosts - Mike and Judy (special thanks to you both). I have no reservations in recommending a stay here to anyone.
