Described as 'absolute bliss' and 'wonderfully peaceful' by some of our previous guests, The Swallows offers true tranquillity near the village of Abbotsbury, a short drive from the seaside town of Weymouth and the picturesque Jurassic Coast. We have seven self-catering cottages in total forming Character Farm Cottages and all stand on our beautiful and extensive working dairy farm where we provide a wholesome family holiday experience rare in modern times. The Swallows is available for weekly holidays all year and for off-season short breaks. It is near some of Dorset's most spectacular attractions and only a mile from Chesil Beach which can be seen from most of the farm.

The Swallows Cottage offers home-from-home comforts for a holiday you can take at your own pace. At the cottage you're welcome to enjoy winter...

This is a beautiful cottage with great views across the valley.It is located in a very quiet country location yet only 5 miles from Weymouth.The Dorset coast is well worth visiting.

Well equipped, pretty cottage complete with books and toys. Enclosed child- and dog-friendly garden. Beautiful location. My only tiny quibble is that I prefer a proper double bed to joined singles. Would love to return!

The Swallows is a two-bedroom semi-detached cottage in rural Dorset. It's only a 10-minute drive to the bustling seaside town of Weymouth, so best of both worlds. The house is pretty, airy, comfortable in size and furnishings. The kitchen is very well kitted-out (decent knives, plenty of table settings, more saucepans than you could possibly need...). The living room is...

About the neighbourhood
There is plenty to do in the local area. The cottage is surrounded by open farmland which you are able to roam on - ideal if you bring a four legged friend- and the Coastal Footpath literally runs through our farm, Weymouth is a couple of miles to the east of us and has a lovely sandy beach with clean shallow water, ideal for little ones. To the west you find the village of Abbotsbury, famous for its historic Swannery and sub-tropical gardens. During Easter time you can visit the Swannery and watch the birds hatching! A little further on is Westbay with its dramatic Jurassic cliffs which featured heavily in the crime series Broadchurch. Lyme Regis is worth a visit and you are almost guaranteed to find a fossil.
We are spoilt for good pubs in the area and some excellent local fish res...
