We recently stayed at Swallow Barn, along with our dog. We often use self catering accommodations, and this was the most immaculate, yet still user friendly, comfortable one we have stayed in. We were WOWed by the bright airy lounge (upstairs) which looks out directly into the trees through a huge window, and a vast variety of birds visit the feeders just outside each day. The entire place is thoughtfully laid out and equipped (and everything works!). The bedrooms (downstairs) are comfortable and have more than enough cupboard space. The owners, Lesley and Peter, were always on hand if needed, and the property had its own information folder for local amenities, beaches etc. The garden area is large and communal, and a very pleasant shady place to sit on a sunny afternoon. A short walk to the lakes (recently acquired by the owners) was well worthwhile, and my fisherman husband was happy (and surprised) with some of his catches! For dog owners the property is in easy reach of some dog friendly beaches, and the local pub staff welcomed our dog in when it was too hot for her to be in the car while we had dinner. The accommodation and the area were everything we wanted from a week's break, and we returned home three very happy, relaxed souls!
