The space
The Swallow's Nest is a ground floor bedroom with a super-king sized bed. There is a mini fridge in the room, should you wish to keep anything cold. The room has private and exclusive use of the adjacent bathroom which has a large heated towel rail, large sink and an extra large shower with two powerful shower heads, one over-head and another wall mounted, useful for those who don't want wet hair everyday! There is an adjacent twin bedroom suitable for older children to stay, or if you are travelling with a friend and would prefer separate rooms. Swallow's Nest is part of our home at Eastwood Farm, Fivehead, Nr Taunton. Postcode TA3 6QU. Please see detailed directions in the location section.

Guest access
Guest access is via the front door and a key will be provided if necessary. Parking is available outside the front door and help can be offered with any luggage. There is a large comfortable hall with three sofas, a wall of books and a log fire in the winter - this is where you can relax after your journey. The kitchen is where you will eat your breakfast, usually a pot of homemade Bircher Muesli and our own eggs, poached and served on toast or a muffin and a fresh pot of real coffee and a selection of teas.

Other things to note
EATING OUT
Curry Rivel has a brilliant pub, The Firehouse, which is a foodie heaven. In Fivehead there is the opportunity to experience a wonderful fine dinning at the restaurant at Langford Fivehead. Further afield there is the Farmers Arms in West Hatch, The Bird in the Hand in beautiful North Curry, The Halfway House in Pitney or The White Hart in historic Somerton. All are within an easy drive of 8-12 mins away.
NATURE
For bird lovers there is the famous Swell Wood Heronry at the top of the drive and the nature reserve is home to the Great Crane, a wetland icon. The Swallow's Nest is one of the few places in the UK where you can not only hear these incredibly rare birds trumpeting as they soar high in the sky but you can see them foraging for food on the Moor and during the year you will see snipe, red shanks, Cettis warblers, lapwings, yellow wagtails, skykarks, golden plover, widgeon, marsh harriers, hobbies, buzzards, kestrels, barn owls, stonechat and kingfisher and famously the starling murmurations.

Location

Fivehead, Taunton Somerset, United Kingdom

Discover the Somerset Levels and Moors - a unique flat landscape that covers an area of about 160.000 acres and are drained by the River Parrett. The Swallow's Nest is adjacent to West Sedgemoor which is the site of a specially protected haven of an RSPB Nature Reserve and part of England's largest remaining wet meadow system and where you will see the largest lowland population of breeding wading birds such as lapwing, snipe, curlew and redshanks. In Spring and Summer you will see dragonflies and damselflies, wildflower meadows, slylarks and clouds of butterflies. It is also home to the successful Great Crane Project and may catch a glimpse of this huge bird either feeding or flying high in the somerset skies. The Isle Valley is full of wonderful footpaths and cycling routes and plenty of great pubs, gardens and national trust properties. Nearby Langport is a delightful little town where you will find a range of charming shops & cafes. Curry Rivel has the new foodie destination of the area, The Firehouse, a popular and friendly family run pub that offers wonderful food.
