    “A very quiet location.”

    Great patio/garden to sit in & enjoy evening sun. Extremely comfortable beds.

    Great patio/garden to sit in & enjoy evening sun. Extremely comfortable beds. However, Swallows Rest was described in the Sykes blurb as a 'no dogs property', but on reading other comments about this property people had taken dogs. This could be an issue if people are allergic to them!
