2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Suffolk, East Anglia, England
Recently converted to a high standard from an open fronted barn, Swallow Barn is now a delightful single storey cottage whose guests may benefit from the use of a private indoor heated swimming pool. It is called Swallow Barn because of the swallows that used to return every year to nest in its rafters.

The barn has two bedrooms, a double and a twin, a large sitting/dining room and a well equipped kitchen. Each bedroom has an en suite bathroom with shower over bath. One bathroom has been specially equipped for use by disabled guests. Swallow Barn has a fully enclosed south facing terrace with table, chairs and a barbeque. It is set in spacious grounds with plenty of safe playing space for children and access to a rural footpath to the small market town of Halesworth. The cottage is equipped to a high standard and has easy, level acces...

My wife and I stayed in Swallow Barn for a wonderful long weekend away in January. We found it a spacious, warm, comfortable and relaxing place to be. We also really enjoyed being able to visit Halesworth the walks round about. Jackie, the owner, was excellent at communicating by email during the booking process, and was more than happy to...

Good location if you are looking for a peaceful break away from the hassles of a busy life. The indoor swimming pool made a huge difference as the weather wasn't that kind. Perfect for families

About the neighborhood
Just a short distance inland from the popular coastal area of Southwold, Walberswick and Dunwich, the Blyth Valley, in which Halesworth sits at the heart, has something to offer everyone. Country lanes and footpaths weave their way through a gentle landscape leading to fascinating old churches, country pubs, museums and a selection of old buildings dating back centuries. There is a rich diversity of wildlife and the area is home to many artists and craft studios.

Halesworth has much to offer the visitor. It has an unhurried and friendly atmosphere and the pedestrianised Thoroughfare with its variety of small independent shops, restaurants and pubs makes visiting the town a worthwhile experience.
