We arrived on christmas eve and stayed until boxing day. It was a perfect christmas in a perfect cottage. The location is stunning, the cottage is spotlessly clean and spacious but warm and cosy. Barbara and Alan are very helpful and friendly. We would recommend this cottage to everyone and cannot wait to visit again

We are so pleased you enjoyed your visit to The Swallows. Thank you for your kind remarks. Hope to see you again.
