Reviewed 17 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We have stayed in many self catering cottages but Swallows Barn has to be one of the best. The cottage was spotlessly clean upon our arrival, very well equipped & fitted out to a high standard. The lovely crisp white bed linen was also a treat., as were 2 ensuite bathrooms! There is a lovely atmosphere about the cottage very much a home from home we had some great days out, but looked forward to returning to the cosy cottage in the late afternoons

Brenda & Tom made us very welcome nothing is too much trouble for them, if you want to know any local information ask Brenda she is only too happy to help and has some great ideas for local walks & places of interest of which there are many. It was lambing time when we visited ask Tom or Brenda to show you around the farm its very interesting, the lambs were so cute

On her recommendation one evening we walked up to Bosley Cloud, wow the views from there are amazing.

We will most definitely be returning hopefully in the near future

Many thanks for your lovely review of our new holiday cottage, Swallows Barn. We really enjoyed having you to stay with us and felt that you arrived as strangers but left as friends - so we were really sorry to see you leave. We particularly enjoyed chatting whilst sharing a bottle of wine on the patio on a lovely sunny evening - most enjoyable! We'll look forward to your return visit. Best regards Brenda & Tom

I stayed in Swallows Barn with my three young children for 7 weeks whilst I was waiting to move to a longer term rental property. We had a wonderful stay in the Cottage. The owners, Brenda & Tom, could not have done more to make our stay more enjoyable or comfortable. The cottage contains everything you may need for a long or short-term stay and I have no hesitation in recommending it. The children had their own bathroom and there is a TV in every room. The children also enjoyed the fact that they lived on a farm. Brenda gave us a tour of the farm on our first day at the Cottage, which the children loved. There is also a lovely wood burner, making those winter evenings feel very cosy.
