Swallow Barn is situated off a quiet lane in a small village surrounded by beautiful countryside and wildlife. The property is separate to our 16th century Grade 2 listed home and we are happy to accept well behaved dogs. Please contact us before booking if you wish to bring them.
Open fields surrounding the property provide plenty of lovely walks.
Swallow Barn is a converted barn adjacent to our very special 16th Century timber framed house. We have converted the barn to a high specification, taking into account our favourite bits of all the holiday lets we have stayed in over the years. We aim to create a sense of cosiness without loss of practicality. The barn affords lovely views over the field and is light and airy. In winter the woodburner adds a warm glow to those cold winter days.
Swallow Barn's unique feature is that it is in a very special position, overlooking open fields. It has it's own garden which is a haven for wildlife. We commonly see a variety of birds and deer walk through our meadow.

I am lucky to live in an amazing place steeped in history with abundant wildlife. I am a passionate advocate of dogs, particularly rescues and have had a lot of experience. When not involved with the dogs I love drawing, painting and walking.
