Had a fantastic stay here with a group of friends; the barn is so spacious, full of character and very homely.
Perfect place for a quiet getaway and also a lovely base for exploring the gorgeous surroundings.
The owners have thought about everything, the kitchen was well equipped and lots of nice little extras, we really didn't want to leave!
Would highly recommend, you will not be disappointed!
Two families came together to stay in Swallows Swoop, we had not seen eachother for several years and we had a lot to catch up! The cottage was a great base for us, large enough for us to all share yet still have plenty of privacy. Lovely bedrooms with very comfortable beds. Victoria provided lots of information ahead of our stay and tried hard to ensure we had a pleasant holiday. Towcester is a nice town. "Ten Hands" served good food and great coffee. Watching the canal boats move along the locks was enjoyable.
Great accommodation with loads of space for everybody downstairs too, great views and location was perfect for us racing at Silverstone. Very easy getting access and good information within the property. We will definitely stay here again.
Having stayed in a lot of self catering accommodation and working within the property refurbishment business we find it hard not to go into places and pick them apart.... But not this time! The original farm buildings have been beautifully converted into cottages of various sizes - we stayed in Swallows Swoop - a 4 bed with plenty of space! Our party consisted of 4 adults, 2 children (2 and 5)and a dog! There was loads of open space around the cottages to keep the kids and dog busy and only 5 min drive away is beautiful Towcester - everything you need there (Tesco, Aldi, petrol, banks, tearooms, restaurants, pubs...) and 5 mins the other way Stoke Bruerne has lovely pub and restaurant etc right on the canal - lovely place to walk and kids enjoyed narrow boat trip!
Anyway back to Swallows Swoop itself - the cottage was immaculately clean and amazingly well equipped... There was way more crockery and dishware than 8 people could ever need! We cooked every night and had more than enough equipment! There was a tray of tea, coffee, sugar and biscuits left for us along with a few little milk pots in the fridge which was great and there were dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid and a sponge - all an added bonus!!! Oh and plenty of loo rolls!
Another important thing for us was the WiFi... It was excellent - no problems at all and really good speed.
I have no idea how anyone could not love these cottages (looked at a few of the others too and all finished to similar high standards)they are simply brilliant!
So - if you are thinking of booking then just do it - you wont be disappointed!!
