This was a perfect venue for a hen do. Great size, very cosy and really well equipped -including kareoke machine! I would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking to organise a hen do or family party.

Thank you so much for taking the time and effort to write your review emphasising the Karaoke facility. I have to say you girls absolutely love a sing song and I am glad to help you in this respect as part of entertainment facilities that come with the cottage. No need to fork out extra money for stuff that is...

We descended on Dean with 4 boys and a dog whilst waiting for our new house keys, and were made to feel very welcome. The rooms were spacious, the dog had a blast in the field by the house and the boys settled in to play Dean's Wii !. He even graciously allowed me the use of his washing machine!...

I recently booked St Swithins for a group of 17 ladies to spend the weekend here for a Hen Do and I could not fault it one bit. Dean was a dream to deal with from the very start...and the cottage was lovely - it had everything you could ever need for a hen do including face wipes and comedy...

Thanks for taking the time to write this review. Each time I get a review it always throws up new opportunities and yes the house does lend itself to family reunions / get togethers as well as my main target being the Sophisticated Hen Party! The various hats are indeed such a hoot and, I think, that is the first...

A group of us came here for a hen weekend a couple of weeks ago and had a fantastic time. The place is gorgeous and Dean's made lots of little touches, for example face wipes in the bathroom. The audio-visual stuff is great, too. The surroundings are really pretty and peaceful - ponies in the field opposite, lovely pubs just...

Wow "the perfect hen" now that makes me feel special! It's a lovely business this as I have two sons, now 25 and 22, and what I am aiming to do is give the hen the best possible time with her girlfriends so that they can support her throughout life as she begins her married life and, hopefully, has the...

We had a fantastic time at St Swithins. We stayed for a two night hen-do weekend for my younger sister, with 13 ladies in total - the house was ample size for this number. The cottage itself was lovely with a great size living room, perfect for dancing the night away until 3am! Kitchen had everything you could have needed...

What a truly lovely family who made the most of what I have to offer! They used The Green Man pub at the end of the drive at least twice and their joyful, happy, relaxed nature grew many plaudits from the owners and staff there. It was really good to be able to accommodate the needs of the boys who...

"I have stayed at St. Swithins Cottage as a Sunday / Monday to Friday business user for well over a year now.
