Beautiful, spacious, quiet but accessible location and wonderful views.

We loved this cottage, very comfortable, well equipped, friendly and helpful hosts. It’s a great location for exploring South Hams and Dartmoor, you can walk for the cottage onto the Two Moors Way. You do have to drive down a single track road to get to it but that’s what you get if you want a farm cottage in Devon, there are passing places and the locals are very good at reversing. We will probably go back next year and would definitely recommend it.

What a lovely review. It sounds like you had an amazing time exploring the area and all of that wonderful countryside. We really hope that you do return to this beautifully positioned and cosy cottage again soon. Donna, Customer Support

We would highly recommend this cottage for its spaciousness, cleanliness, location and lovely, friendly owners who were next door.

Beautiful cottage with a great view from the terrace to the hills of Dartmoore. Very friendly owners who were happy to help and give advice. It was a wonderful stay.

This is one of the best cottages I have stayed in. Great modern facilities, including a lovely relaxing bath after a days walking and a large shower. Kitchen well appointed. Views fantastic and right on the edge of Dartmoor so I could literally walk straight on to the Moor from the cottage. But only 5 mins drive from South Brent with good shops for food etc. Lovely hosts. Just a great place to get away from it all. Second time staying here. Wont be the last

It sounds like the perfect getaway! What an absolute dream, walking the moors and then relaxing at the barn with those amazing views. We do hope it won't be too long before your next visit. Donna, Customer Support

Swallow Cottage is spotlessly clean with stunning views of Dartmoor.The property itself is beautifully furnished and maintained. Penny and Nick are very good hosts.If it is a relaxing rural retreat you want this place fits the bill!

Swallow Cottage is a lovely cosy and warm cottage, with an interesting layout, and luxurious and comfortable bed. Nick and Penny were lovely hosts, they made us feel very welcome and helped with information about the area. The location is quiet and relaxing, with walks on the doorstep, but within easy reach of the local village South Brent which had all the amenities we needed. Highly recommend it.

A very comfortable and tastefully converted farm building within Dartmoor Conservation Area

We are glad to hear that you enjoyed Swallow Cottage and hope to welcome you back again soon. Sarah, Customer Support

Clean & comfortable cottage with lovely views. Good location for visiting local attractions or walking. Very narrow lanes leading to cottage with few passing places, reversing skills needed !!!

Excellent cottage with magnificent views. Very tastefully furnished. Friendly, helpful owners.

Beautiful cottage with amazing views. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We stayed at the cottage next door called Dairy Cottage, but we hired this one as well for our friends to stay whilst they were on holiday with us. As per Dairy Cottage (see separate review), the cottage was high spec in lovely surroundings. Although the layout is different to Dairy Cottage, everything was in immaculate condition. Would definitely recommend.

We had a really relaxing stay here during the recent heatwave. What a wonderful place to escape to.

This property and location excelled our expectations

the best

Excellent cottage with very good facilities and wonderful views. Also ideally located for peace and quiet and access to Dartmoor and the coast. South Brent shops more than adequate for food etc.
The owners are lovely people and made our stay very good, thank you!

We had a fantastic week at Swallow Cottage.

Extremely well designed, spacious and comfortable. Very well equipped.

Loved the views and all the swallows and house martins swooping over us. A very peaceful spot to relax in.

Highly recommended, we hope to return.

Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Superb cottage.wonderful views.We loved our stay at Swallow cottage.

Very attractive and comfortable cottage surrounded by lovely countryside. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

What a find! Swallow Cottage is the most perfect remote getaway. We went with our 6-month old and we had everything we needed. Would love to be back again soon.

Immaculately clean & spacious with great views, very quiet & peaceful, lovely place to relax. Nick & Penny good hosts and great advice on a lovely walk onto the moors.

We had a fabulous stay in the cottage. It was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Great views and peaceful surroundings. Nick and Penny are lovely hosts and not forgetting Merlin of course. We would have no hesitation in recommending or returning to this property. Thank you.

Excellent secluded location but within easy access of A38, nearby towns and the national park. Sheep and swallows make it a very relaxing place to sit outside with a drink and a book. Very spacious cottage with everything you'd need. Penny and Nick are very friendly and helpful hosts. We'll be back :)

Nick and Penny are wonderful hosts and give great recommendations.

Penny and Nick were the most wonderful hosts, friendly and welcoming but never intruding . Perfect location away from the hoards of people and yet close enough to walk to habitation and delightful small town of South Brent. 10 out of 10!

Friendly attentive owners .

Beautiful cottage in a stunning location views spectacular . Very rural and tranquil but within easy drives to coast and moors . Hosts Penny & Nick very welcoming and more than happy to show you the animals . Would love to return .

Cottage was everything we could have wanted. Great location. Owners were very friendly. Service from Classic Cottages was exemplary.

Fantastic cottage, great views ,5*s in every respect.

Swallow Cottage is an excellent choice if you are looking for a very quiet and peaceful location and a beautful view from the door.

Had a wonderful short break. Warm welcome from hosts and the cottage was sparkling clean and cosy.

Blissfully quiet and a good spot to see the stars on a clear night. We loved being able to walk straight onto the moor.

Looking forward to another stay very soon.
