  • "Really lovely cottage, we thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay."

    Thank you

  • "Very friendly owners."

    Property was fairly clean but there was some old cereal in one kitchen cupboard and lots of crumbs. Reasonable walk into town and walks from the door across the common. The kitchen extractor rattled quite loudly in the wind. Shelf in the shower would be good.

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Swallow Barns, the cottage itself was of a high standard."

    The bedrooms and bathrooms were well designed. The living and dining areas were excellent. The kitchen too. The latter could be improved with some small additions to the implements provided such as tongs, a sieve and a milk jug, but these did not detract from our overall enjoyment of an attractive and comfortable and relaxing cottage. Looking forward to a return visit sometime. Many thanks to our hosts!

    Perfect break away for my Mum & me, in very well appointed and comfortable 2 bedroom barn. It was a very peaceful, relaxed place to stay with everything we needed - we loved the bathrooms, comfy beds, and beautiful open plan kitchen & living space.

    It is in a quiet location yet very near to the delightful Chipping Sodbury and has easy access to the M4. Colin and Mary were helpful and friendly and we thank them for their hospitality.

  • "A really lovely comfortable cottage for either two (as we were) or a family of four."

    Lovely and quiet but very close to a pub for good food and lots of amenities. Lovely friendly owners, on hand if needed but not intrusive in any way.

  • "We booked the cottage to stay in waiting for our house to be finished."

    The cooking facilities were basic which was to be expected for a holiday property but if you were eating out most of the time adequate. One problem was the extractor fan flap to the EnSuite which when the wind was in a certain direction made a noise all night. The owner was aware but not yet come up with a solution. The property is beautiful and comfortable.

    Beautifully decorated and well kitted out, it’s the perfect base to explore the area. Was greeted by the owners & they were so friendly & nothing too much trouble. Would highly recommend a stay here!

  • "Lovely place located in a very quiet location, everything very comfortable and beautifully decorated, all brand new."

    Colin was very nice and welcoming. As a suggestion, a little shelf in the walk in shower to put on the shampoo and shower gel and a little bin in the bedroom,near the vanity table would be good to have. Anyway, a fantastic place to spend a holiday. Thank you Mary and Colin!

  • "Colin & Mary have created a fabulous home from home with swallow barn."

    They gave us the most lovely welcome, it was easy to collect keys and access and then they just left us to enjoy our holiday knowing they were there if we needed them. Very clean and well thought out with all we needed both at the cottage and locally. Such a beautiful space to explore from. . We would definitely be back! . One point to make, when it’s windy the extractor fan in the en suite flaps which did keep me awake the second night. Just mentioning as maybe a little foam padding could stop this and help future guests. This in no way affected our stay, I’m a light sleeper anyway! I would fully recommend and return in future.

  • "We had a fantastic stay at Swallow Barns."

    The owners were incredibly welcoming and kind and made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. The property was very well equipped, spotlessly clean and very quiet. We have stayed in many rental homes over the years and we think this is one of the very best - we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. The location is fantastic, a fairly short drive to both Bath and Bristol. It's within walking distance of the village centre and a couple of minutes' drive to a large Tesco. We would love to stay here again!
