For anyone that travels regularly, it's comforting knowing where you are headed and looking forward to the experience. Although off the beaten track perhaps, the Swallows Rest is worth the diversion and is supremely comfortable, cosy and modern.

Fantastic facilities and a wonderful Host. Nothing was too much trouble. Bedrooms were better than some 5 star hotels we have stayed in. Everything you could ever want for breakfast including home made bread, jams and marmalade and cookies. Cannot recommend lt too highly.

Not sure. I believe its no pets policy because of allergies by other guests. Best to phone and enquire.
