About & Contact

This property (with easy walking access) provides perfect accommodation for a family or couple(s) enjoying a break. It is close to Dove House but totally private from it, and is a single storey conversion with wooden floors and rugs throughout. It has one double bedroom (5 ft bed) with en suite bathroom/wc. TV/DVD, and one twin room (zip and link beds) with en suite shower/wc. The central living area with woodburning stove is wonderfully cosy in winter with French doors onto a large secure garden with a pretty patio area, and has a fully equipped kitchen (ceramic hob, electric oven, dishwasher, washer/drier, fridge/freezer, microwave, TV/video, DVD player and radio/cassette/cd player and pay as you go phone. Non smokers only please. 1 small well behaved dog welcome.

Swallows is also very successful for people with an elderly parent with its easy access and 2 en-suites. Many people return as there is plenty to do locally at all times of the year and it is a perfect base from which to explore the wider area.

NB: Swallows guests do not have access to the swimming pool and games room unless booked in conjunction with Dove House.
