    • “Swallow cottage was very cosy with real attention to detail, this made for a very relaxing stay. The play field was excellent and the kids really enjoyed all the equipment that was there. The shared train carriage was a nice touch with lots of really useful information about what to do in the surrounding area. We would definitely come back.”

    • “We stayed here while visiting family nearby. It is a beautiful conversion with all the equipment you would need and more, and space for us to welcome visitors. There are some lovely touches like the kids playground, toys for kids, phone box with great maps and local info, and the owners are on hand if you need them. Would recommend to anyone wanting a real country break with luxury!”

    • “We were warmly welcomed by Sam with a bottle of wine and a lovely plate of homemade mince pies - a nice start to our festivities.The barns are of outstanding cleanliness and quality in a superb walking area. We had a great christmas in this comfortable, well appointed home. Local area tips were plentiful and very helpful from our host for whom nothing was too much trouble.Being keen walkers the brilliant walking area was just what we wanted. The only gripes we had were the lack of vital information given to us by Sykes! Our party journeyed in two parts in very snowy conditions and we had major problems when the first arrivals could not contact the others to warn them of the adverse state of the local road due to lack of phone signal which was never mentioned by the company. We took half an hour to get up the single track road which was very steep and covered in a sheet of ice - yet again no warning that a 4 wheel drive vehicle may be needed. The owners did all they could do to help, but we felt let down by the infomation Sykes had provided. Thankfully we were fit enough to push our large car full of Christmas fare up the hill, anyone with health problems would not have coped.”

    • “First class Cottage in all respects. Friendly and welcoming owners.”

    Mrs Cleaver, Melton Mowbray, October 2015

    • “Beautiful surroundings, lovely cottage. Very helpful and friendly owners.”

    Mrs O'byrne, Prestonpans, October 2014

    • “The cottage was really peaceful and quiet. The surrounding countryside was really pretty and the walking potential was great. The little play area was a great idea and the children in our party really loved it. Our hosts were friendly and on hand if required but have also perfected the art of giving you plenty of freedom and space to enjoy your break. We really enjoyed our time here.”

    Mr Mcalpine, Maidstone, August 2014

    • “It was a beautiful place to stay; very peaceful and well equipped. The garden was particularly suited to young children.”

    Mrs Garnham, Newcastle Upon Tyne, June 2014

    • “The cottage was absolutely spotlessly clean - in fact cleaner than I have ever experienced in a similar situation. The owners were a delight and the contents of the kitchen were very thoughtful. We managed to be quite ambitious with our catering for the whole family as quite simply we had the confidence that we would find everything we needed in order to prepare the meals. The area is of course absolutely beautiful.”

About the location


Knighton 5 miles; Clun 6 miles; Ludlow 13 miles.

The pretty village of Bucknell nestles in the beautiful valley of the River Teme in South Shropshire, close to the borders of Wales and Herefordshire. This is a lovely area of peaceful unspoilt countryside, but still offering much interest for the visitor - the historic market town of Ludlow renowned for its superb restaurants, Ironbridge with its famous museums, and the county town of Shrewsbury are all within easy driving distance. The Heart of Wales Railway has a station in the village and to the south are the black and white villages of North Herefordshire with their cider orchards. Bucknell offers two pubs, both serving food, whilst the nearby market towns of Craven Arms and Knighton offer a full range of amenities.
