“Relaxing winter break”
Reviewed 10 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

After our wedding at the end of November we packed up the car and drove down to Devon for 6 days for our "mini honeymoon" - we couldn't have picked a better destination than swallows flight. We had a wonderful time. The barn was lovely and cozy and we were greeted with some lovely local biscuits and a bottle of fizz, which we enjoyed in the hot tub. The hosts were very warm and friendly, and we had the perfect mix of privacy and also help and advice if we needed it.

The local area is beautiful, even on a grey windy day, and we enjoyed many of the fantastic local restaurants. The towns of Dartmouth, Totnes, kingsbridge and salcome were lovely even at this time of year, with all the Christmas decorations up. We even had a few windswept picnics on the beautiful local beaches! In summer it must be spectacular.

We would love to return and would recommend to anyone. The homemade sloe gin didn't last long on our return home!

“Perfect barn conversion for a country break”
Reviewed 16 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We have just returned home from a perfect little weekend break. We arrived tired after a long drive but the welcome from Lucy made us feel very welcome. The family were very accommodating all weekend. We have a 6 month old and the eldest daughter was happy to watch him whilst he slept, so we could enjoy the lovely Hot Tub they have. The barn itself has been converted to the highest quality and was a great base for us to come back to after exploring the local area. Couldn't recommend enough and would love to go back soon.

Reviewed 3 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

What a fabulous place! We stayed in their airstream trailer for our mini-moon and it was faultless. The caravan was wonderfully restored and decorated and stayed warm despite the wind. Their hospitality is awesome and we received the loveliest welcome and send off. The hot tub was great and the location is amazing - lots of great places within walking distance. Couldn't recommend higher, would definitely recommend.

Management Response

We love to host honeymoons both in our converted barn as well as our vintage Airstream caravan. How lovely to start married life with a relaxing and romantic break in the Devon countryside - think walks on the beach, candlelit suppers, champagne in the hot tub, time alone together in a beautiful place, and you'll picture what Swallows' Flight offers. We enjoyed welcoming Mr & Mrs Hill to South Devon for their honeymoon, and wish them a long and happy marriage together - what a lovely couple, their cheerfulness is infectious!

“Gorgeous accommodation, fabulous location!”
Reviewed 15 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Our family of 4 (including a 5 and a 1 yr old) stayed in the barn for 1 week, it was a great base for exploring the local area and just as nice to spend time there as well, using the grounds, hot tub and BBQ. The barn was so nicely styled and easily accommodated a travel cot we bought with us. We were given a highchair to use.
My older son slept comfortably on a snuggle sac provided as well.
If you like the countryside, you'll love this place! We even had a great view of nesting swallows outside the window.
We also appreciated the crabbing kit for the children, sole gin and biscuits and a leaving bag containing bottled water.
I couldn't recommend No 1 more, would love to stay again in the future!!

“Very friendly welcome”
Reviewed 14 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had hoped to stay in the Granary, but it was already booked.Instead we were offered a room in the main house, with breakfast included. The room was accessed from its own stairs and so very private. It was well furnished and comfortable. Breakfast was at the family table, shared with the owners and their children, it was an absolute pleasure to be with them. The breakfast was freshly prepared and delicious. The owners made us feel very much at home. My only regret was that we did not use the hot tub, but that gives a good reason to return.
