Other things to note

The cottage is situated in a very quite rural location, no flight path overhead and zero light pollution offering amazing night skies. The hidden lakes offer total tranquility and a haven for wildlife including kingfishers, otters, buzzards, deer, and in summer beautiful dragonflies. The lakes can be fished for golden rudd, tench and orff. Just 8 miles away is Sandymouth the most stunning all year round dog friendly beach, at low tide great for walking, surfing and body boarding. We are a great place to stay if you want to walk the south west coastal path.

We have just returned home from a lovely stay at Swallow barn☺. Thank you to Simon and Sarah for being very kind and helpful. We took our dog and it was a great area for her especially by the lakes.

Simon and Sarah were very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay even lending a pair of wellies to my son when we had a rainy day. The barn has all you need and is very cosy and tastefully decked out, overlooking the beautiful gardens and tennis court. An unexpected surprise was the tranquility of their own lakes which guests can enjoy sole use of with accompanying summer house and cooking facilities - this granted us a lovely evening and meal out in nature on our last sunny evening. Deep in the Devonshire countryside Bradworthy is the nearest village with it's Bradworthy Inn and tearoom. You are also a short drive from the coast with Sandymouth and many other great beaches. Very good value and recommended.

My wife and I moved down to Devon from Surrey in September 2015 to escape the rat race and have a much needed change of lifestyle. We absolutely love it down here, great beaches, lovely peace and fresh air, dark night skies and a much slower pace of life. We look forward to welco…
