We had a wonderful time at Swallows Nest, so relaxing everything was great.

One of the best cottages we have stayed in, finished to a high quality specification. Everthing we needed and expected and more, we could not fault this cottage absolutely beautiful .

Excellent location for exploring Dorset, Somerset and East Devon, all easy to get to. Owners very friendly and helpful. Cottage is clean & comfortable, everything you need is provided. Thank you Sarah & Martin , we had a lovely week at Swallows Rest & would hope to return in 2023.

Thank you so much for your lovely review. We're thrilled to hear you found the location excellent for exploring all three counties! We're sure the owners will be delighted. We really hope to welcome you back again in the future. Kelsey, Customer Support

Beautiful, clean, cosy, comfortable cottage. Hosts make you feel very welcome. Location is central to many popular places. Everything you need. Would definitely recommend.

1st class made very welcome, will definitely look to rebook in the future and recommend to family and friends who are looking to get away

Very very comfortable cottage. Loved every minute of our stay. The weather wasn't the best but it didn't matter as the cottage had everything we could ask for. Will definatley recommend.

The hosts gave us some lovely welcome goodies, including a Bonio for Nala, our greyhound. That, and a personalised message on the kitchen blackboard, made us feel very welcomed. The overall standard is extremely high, very comfortable, clean and tastefully decorated, with an exceptionally well equipped kitchen. We would highly recommend this property for couples.

I would really recommend sallows rest. If you are looking for some peace and quiet. Clean and comfortable home from home.

Beautiful homely cottage done to a high spec with good outside space fo sit and enjoy . Friendly helpful owners .

We stayed at this property in August and was impressed with the lovely Swallows Nest cottage. Location is about a 25min drive to the coast of Lyme Regis or West Bay, both of which are very nice places. The local pub a 15 min walk away also served good food in Drimpton. The nearest supermarket is about 3 to 4 miles away along with shops, pubs and takeaways. The owners were very friendly and helpful and provided a lovely welcome pack. My only issue was the Wi-fi which definitely needs upgrading, our weather was pretty awful so we wanted to stream some movies, we gave up trying to use the Wi-fi service in the cottage.

A delightful new property, perfect for two people wishing to explore the lovely Dorset countryside & coastal areas. Hosts Sarah & Martin with Pippin the dog make you feel very welcome. Would definitely stay again and have recommended Swallows Rest to our family & friends.

We really enjoyed out stay. Cottage was excellent and we were made to feel welcome. Cannot fault anything just wished we could have stayed longer We would definitely recommend this property and the company to any friends wanting to visit this part of the country

An excellent cottage, nicely fitted and well maintained. Owners were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. We enjoyed our stay and would certainly stay again if holidaying in the area.
