Welcome to Swallow's Nest!
The kitchen is small but perfectly formed, with all you could need provided.
The warming wood-burner ensures year-round cosiness and adds a lovely atmosphere to out-of-season breaks.
Switch off from modern life and reconnect with one another.
The super stylish shower-room.
With hot shower.
And equally stylish features.
A staircase leads up to the mezzanine level - please take care with the narrow-treaded steps.
The courtyard provides the perfect place to dine al fresco.
Enjoy a glass of your favourite tipple in the sunshine.
Not only is there a Kamado (barbecue and ceramic smoker) but there's a wood-fired pizza oven too!
Pizza or BBQ - decisions decisions!
Swallow's Nest nestles at the heart of the farmstead which is home to rare breed cattle, sheep and goats, incredible wildlife and a free-spirited ethic that is infectious.
Spot the medieval patterns engraved into the cob walls, carved to welcome in good fortune and fend off witchcraft.
Every little detail has been thoughtfully put-together.
The ladder stairs are protected by a carved wooden panel, reclaimed long ago from a local church (please take care when using them, as the steps have a narrow tread).
The cob wall is one of the many fantastically quirky features.
A fully stocked inventory.
Just gorgeous!
Hatherland Mill Farm has it's own micro-brewery, you must have a tasting!
From the courtyard your own gate leads to the meadow that borders the river - you are welcome to explore.
Rover will love his holiday!
The friendly owners are happy to advise where the best riverside spots are for the chance to see an otter or a kingfisher.

The owners' rare breed cattle are nearby - just look at the gorgeous calf!
One of your neighbours!
The River Exe runs through the farmland.
Just such a gorgeous setting for a back-to-nature break.
This traditional smallholding has earned conservation awards from Natural England and offers a wonderful opportunity to feel part of a sustainable and environmentally friendly way of living.
