“Probably the best holiday cottage we've stayed in”
Reviewed June 28, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Lovely cottage fitted with very high quality fittings and furnishings and spotlessly clean. Sunny private garden. Ali is very helpful. Lots to do in the area - nature reserves, lovely countryside, beautiful historic towns and National Trust properties nearby.

“Beautiful in every way!”
Reviewed April 28, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We've just returned from a long weekend stay at Swallow Barn. "Perfect" most definitely describes this beautiful cottage. Every detail has been thought about in detail and the cottage really feels as though it wraps you in a bear hug the minute you walk through the door.

We are already planning our return in the very near future and part of me doesn't want to rave too much for fear that we won't be able to rebook for lack of availability.

“Perfect”
Reviewed April 2, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Place was spotless and we loved all the little extras such as fresh bread, eggs and chocolates when we got there. We felt as if they'd gone above and beyond what you'd normally expect from a holiday rental.
I really can't fault it and Ali was really friendly and helpful!
We both want to return again :)

“A lovely little getaway!”
Reviewed March 9, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We've just got back from the most lovely stay at Swallow Barn, the perfect place for a few relaxing days out in a lovely country setting. The barn itself is ideal, spotlessly clean, warm and cosy, the bed was huge and in a lovely airy big room, with a shower and a big bath to chill out in! There's not a thing our hosts didn't think of... A roaring log fire lit on arrival, fresh milk, bread and home laid eggs! All of the little touches that made a great stay just perfect! Honestly everything you need is there, they really have gone out of their way to make it as comfortable and convenient as possible! Our dog also had a great time, she was able to run around outside and enjoy the country smells and we could relax knowing she couldn't escape! She loved curling up by the fire and was very grateful for the treats and blanket left out for her :) we couldn't have asked for more, we'll definitely be visiting again soon :)

“Wonderful relaxing break”
Reviewed February 10, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We stayed here for 2 nights in early February and wanted a high end property for a relaxing long weekend. We nearly thought about cancelling because of the flooding in the Somerset Levels where it is situated but after contacting Ali, the owner, were reassured that all was OK at the property.
We arrived to a very warm welcome from Ali and she showed us round the converted cattle shed. It has been renovated to a very high standard with very good facilities. It has all that you could want as well as some extra touches, fluffy dressing gowns, basic food supplies like tea, coffee, milk, bread, butter, condiments and a lovely chocolate cake and boxes of chocolates! Very welcome indeed!
The bed was very comfortable and we had a lovely time. We visited Wells and the Clarks shopping village over the weekend and had dinner on Saturday night at The Devonshire Arms in Long Sutton which was lovely.
We will definitely be recommending Swallow Barn to our friends as it is such great value. Thanks again for a lovely weekend.

“Fantastic place to stay”
Reviewed January 20, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We have just come home from Swallow Barn and it exceeded all expectations of a great place to stay. The barn is delightful, very comfortable, warm and cosy. The barn is beautifully furnished to a very high standard, from the lounge/diner/kitchen area and upstairs with a six foot bed and a lovely en-suite bathroom. There is underfloor heating and a wood burner which was an added bonus. No expense has been spared on this barn. Ali, Gary, Matt, and Niamh made us so very welcome, nothing was too much trouble for them. We will come back and are recommending swallow Barn to family and friends. We love this area and are delighted to have found this gem.
