Swallows Return is a lovely, award winning holiday home located in stunningly beautiful gardens.
Situated off of a very quiet country lane, you are transported into an oasis of calm and tranquility far away from to bustle of normal life, with only birdsong and the occasional duck quacking to break the silence.
The house is spacious and well equipped and the beds comfortable. It has accommodation for up to six people. There is wi fi (which is quick) and adequate mobile phone coverage. Appliances are of a good specification and from quality brands. The large television features Sky and blue ray playback.
You could stay here for a week and simply enjoy the wonderful garden ambience which owners Bill and Penny have created.
We had a great week in Swallows Return! It’s a lovely house and extremely well equipped, I don’t thing we’ve ever stayed in a holiday home that is as well equipped as this, the owners have thought of everything. The garden is more like a small park, with so much variety and beautifully done, we’d love to see it in the Spring, it must be stunning. You won’t regret booking to stay here.
We enjoyed our two weeks holiday in Swallows Return very much. It was a real home from home for us and our dog. The cottage has eyery comfort one would expect, it was exceptionelly clean and cosy. We loved the rainy days so we had an excuse to hang around in the house and just to sit and read a book. But on the other Hand there are so many things to do and places to visit ... The house is also ideal for dogowners. We are looking forward to see the owners Penny and Bill again.
Super property, exquisitely furnished and extremely well equipped. No expense has been spared and the Barn was like a real home not just done up as a holiday let.
Set in wonderful surroundings, beautiful gardens complete with orchard, tennis court, pond and hens. We were lucky that the plums and apples were ready when we stayed so were kindly invited to help ourselves.
Our son also loved collecting eggs from the hens for breakfast.
We received a very warm welcome and awaiting us were 6 fresh eggs, a box of biscuits and some milk in the fridge.
Penny & Bill were perfect hosts, really genuine, friendly and warm and we would love to keep in touch.
We couldn't have wished for any more (other than an extra week!). We would definitely like to return
We have high standards and take great care to find somewhere really lovely to stay each year. We have always managed this but Swallows Return was the best we have ever stayed in.
We found places to visit every day, none more than a 50 minute drive away - Canterbury, Hythe, Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch railway, Dungeness, Howletts & Port Lympne, Rye and Tenterden
Highly recommended. I am happy to give a glowing review but a bit of me really wants to keep this as our own little secret!
Many thanks, Penny and Bill, we really appreciated everything
We stayed in Swallows Return in mid-June, during the hottest week that the UK had seen in many years. However, Swallows Return was a calm, cool haven. The barn is simply wonderful, and Bill and Penny are just as wonderful! The bedrooms and bathrooms are great, and the decor is superb. Internet/wifi, kitchen -- all perfect. Mattresses are particularly comfortable. Bill and Penny were always available to help and answer questions about the house and the area. The garden is magnificent, words cannot describe the beauty and variety of flowers, shrubs and trees which have been cultivated and developed over many years by the couple. We have come off of a very busy year and Swallows Return was just what we needed. We are only sorry that we were not able to stay longer We will most definitely return to Swallows Return. Thank you Bill and Penny for all! Mary Anne and Michael Baumgartner
