Because of their historic nature, the cottages have numerous exposed beams and a cosy country style. The central heating is oil fired with a supplementary electric wood burner set into the red brick fireplace in the sitting room if needed. Seating is conveniently arranged around the fire creating a pleasant place to sit and relax with family or friends in the evenings.
Swallow Cottage has a double, twin and single bedroom that sleep a maximum of five people. There is a baby's cot, highchair available by arrangement, also baby bedding.
