    “Family holiday”

    Just returned after a 7 nights stay at Swallows Reach. The converted barn is very spacious for a large family, accommodation was clean, and the views from the house were amazing. Fantastic dog walking too. There is plenty to do in the area and we ventured out every day being lucky enough to have a sunny week. The property sits at the end of a group of properties, it was quiet and private. We had a wonderful time ...

    Just returned after a 7 nights stay at Swallows Reach. The converted barn is very spacious for a large family, accommodation was clean, and the views from the house were amazing. Fantastic dog walking too. There is plenty to do in the area and we ventured out every day being lucky enough to have a sunny week. The property sits at the end of a group of properties, it was quiet and private. We had a wonderful time. Unfortunately there were a few things that could be improved, toaster not fully working, dishwasher trays broken, light bulbs internally and externally not all working- however these are small things and they did not impact on our stay. The property overall externally now looks like it needs some TLC, garden furniture needs sanding and staining so no longer looks as per the photo on the website. The garden however is very well kept. The swimming pool temperature was too cold to really enjoy a swim and there are various holes on the pool floor where tiles have broken off and are missing in both the main pool and toddler pool which I feel is a H&S issue, this allowing the hardcore base of the pool to be exposed. The ladies changing room however, is very clean and the shower lovely and hot. The play park is unusable as the equipment is damaged and needs a good clean. The trampoline area though looks great and very well kept. We did venture into the games room but deliveries had been made of a new mattress and some boxes so felt that we really shouldn’t be in there as it was being used as storage too. Bedrooms are large and bathrooms are great, clean crisp linen on all the beds. The beds in the upstairs family room that myself and my husband used along with our little girl were very uncomfortable, there are 3 single beds appropriate for children. Beds and mattresses are not very good quality which leads to bad nights sleep and bad backs! Our 16 year old son said his feet hung off the end of the bed in the same style room on the ground floor. A book detailing what to do with rubbish, where to collect logs for the burner etc. would have been helpful on arrival. But, saying all that, the property overall is lovely but with some improvements and some tweaks has the potential to be outstanding - the milk and chocolate cake left for us on arrival was a nice thought and very much appreciated
