  • "Good value for money, quite a small cottage but comfortable and everything you need is there."

    Cleanliness could be better, the kitchen was a bit greasy and the state of the bathroom also requires some attention (loose taps, shower doors don't close properly). Location is excellent, near Shaftesbury and within an hour driving of both the south and the west coast.

  • "We mentioned to the owners that the online photos didn't do the farm cottages justice, in response they were going to review them."

    It was a lovely setting, the cottage was well stocked and the owners were very friendly and helpful. Thank you

The property

Semley 1 mile.

Hidden away on the outskirts of the idyllic village of Semley, you will find Swallow Cottage.

Set across the ground-floor, this picturesque property is a fantastic choice for couples and their canine companion travelling to the great Wiltshire countryside.

Be welcomed into a homely open-plan living space, exuding light from the large patio doors, and offering the perfect space to rest and recuperate as you unwind with a warm cup of coffee on the stylish grey sofa.

Move your way across to the quaint and contemporary kitchen and discover a plethora of handy electrical appliances and utensils, sure to inspire many delicious home-cooked meals throughout your stay.

Crack open a bottle of bubbly and indulge in a romantic meal for two at the breakfast bar, or make the most of warmer weather with dinner alfresco out on the lawn.

Freshen up with a quick rinse in the shower room, before grabbing your towel and heading for the pretty king-size bedroom where you can get ready for the day that lies ahead.

Surrounded by the luscious green hills of the Cranborne Chase, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there are many breath-taking walks to embark on throughout your stay.

Head to Shaftesbury to explore Melbury Beacon, or dust off your bikes and head for Duncliffe Wood for an exhilarating cycle through the countryside.

Take a tour of the grand 17th century mansion of Stourhead and admire the beautiful flowers and foliage that fill the thousand-acre estate.

Head to Tisbury and uncover the imposing partially-ruined fortress of Old Wardour Castle, before stopping by the Pseudonatural caves.

Upon return to your holiday home, head into the neighbouring village of Semley for an evening of wining and dining down at the local pub, or spend some time in the town of Shaftesbury where you will find the historical cobbled street of Gold Hill and a selection of charming pubs and restaurants.
