  • "The directions were clean and it was easy to find."

    The house was incredibly clean upon arrival. All the rooms were a good size and we were able to make the house toddler proof with ease. 3 bathrooms were well equipped with good showers. The kitchen had everything we needed. Tea, coffee and some fantastic sausages from the farm were provided which was a nice touch. Our hosts were incredibly welcoming and we're kind enough to show us round the farm during our stay. All in all we had a lovely break and would recommend this property to anyone and everyone.

  • "We’ve had the most wonderful 5 day stay at Swallows Lodge."

    The cottage was spotlessly clean and furnished to a very high standard. The kitchen was equipped with everything you could need. The beds were super comfy with quality linen and duvets. Bathrooms were also spotlessly clean and the showers had excellent pressure. The log burning stove gave off a lovely warmth which added to the ambience. The information provided in the cottage in respect of using appliances etc and local services and places of interest was extremely comprehensive The owners left some sausages, minced beef, fresh milk and tea a coffee which was most welcome and delicious. The owners were welcoming without being intrusive and communication from booking until the end of our stay was excellent. The surroundings were peaceful and relaxing, which was just what we were looking for. We would not hesitate to recommend Swallows Lodge to anyone looking for a relaxing stay in beautiful surroundings. We will definitely be booking again.

    Thanks for your review Kirsty. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Property Owner

The property

Tucked away on the outskirts of Dormansland in Surrey lies the brilliant, three-bedroom holiday home of Swallows Lodge.

Boasting ample off-road parking space, an enclosed patio with outdoor seating and a barbecue, along with stunning, bright interiors highlighted by flagstone flooring and tasteful wooden features, this superb property makes a perfect base for a family or a group of six friends seeking a relaxing, self-catered getaway within the magnificent High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Park up outside your wonderful new home-from-home, taking a moment to soak in your tranquil new setting.

Step into your new abode to discover a well-appointed, tastefully-presented open-plan living space, featuring a fully-equipped kitchen with integrated appliances, a dining table with seating for six, and a sitting area complete with plush sofas, a sleek wall-mounted Smart TV and an elegant woodburning stove.

When it’s time to relax, refresh with a revitalising shower or a dip in the bath before you eventually settle down for a well-earned rest in one of the three sumptuous bedrooms, all of which are accompanied by their own en-suites.

After you have finished your morning coffee, set out to explore what your local area has in store.

Hoopers Farm sits on Dry Hill, and in the spring, the lodge is surrounded by wonderful wildflowers in adjacent meadows.

You can even purchase fresh beef, lamb, and pork on the farm during your stay.

The notable Vanguard Way walking path is directly accessible from the garden, leading down to Ashdown Forest that inspired the location of the Winnie the Pooh books.

A brief car trip will take you into the heart of Dormansland, a large village housing a Post Office selling homely essentials, the pubs of The Plough Inn and The Royal Oak, and eateries such as the Old House at Home.

Peaceful walks in nature can also be had within the Dormansland Recreation Ground, whilst the property rests on the National Cycle Trail, a popular route with keen walkers and cyclists.

Slightly further afield, the town of Royal Tunbridge Wells can be found, home to Dunorlan Park, the Spa Valley Railway, the Toad Rocks scenic point, and the High Rocks National Monument.

The historic site of Hever Castle & Gardens also lie nearby, former home of Anne Boleyn, whilst the spectacular Water Maze can also be found and enjoyed here during your visit.

For a full day out, head by car for a tour of the High Weald AONB, where you can enjoy ambling through the botanic gardens of Wakehurst, tour the grounds of Standen House and Garden and Scotney Castle, or even enjoy an afternoon spent roaming the pristine landscapes of Penshurst Place & Gardens, an outstanding manor house that hosts regular events and farmers’ markets.

With the Kent Downs AONB also within reach, don your walking boots to explore the Conningbrook Lakes Country Park, the Wye Downs Nature Reserve and Bluebell National Forest, before enjoying the attractions found in Ashford, Canterbury, and Maidstone.

All of this and more is yours to enjoy when you book Swallows Lodge.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.
