Swallows Return is a luxurious self catering barn conversion situated in rural Kent with easy access to culture, wildlife and the seaside. The open plan living, dining and kitchen area has been thoughtfully laid out with dual aspect windows and french doors leading to several outdoor seating areas so that you can enjoy the amazing views over the Romney Marsh and take in the abundant wildlife and birds. The owners have taken pride in every aspect of this conversion making the look and feel not only luxurious but like a home from home. The owners beautifully designed garden is part of the National Garden Scheme and is open twice a year to visitors, where you will probably find the free range hens wandering around (be sure to thank them for your eggs in your welcome pack!)
