“Absolutely cute, amazing, comfortable, and relaxing!”
Reviewed 4 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

I came to this property with my girlfriend for her birthday and New Year 2013-2014, and we absolutely loved it, didn't want to go. The woodburner is amazing when its flared up and makes the barn very cosy aswell as the underfloor heating. There is plenty things to do, even if you wanna stay in and watch films. There's a lot to see if you go for walks, all the propertys around that area are huge - there was even one with a big swimming pool!!. Ali, the owner - was very helpful on our weekly stay, she said if there was anything we needed to go to her, if she was out and about she'd ask us if we needed anything, she gave us extra logs and kindling for the woodburner, and was on the door to welcome us there. We would like to return to this property in the future to come. Everything was there on our arrival such as tea, sugar, butter etc, its very cosy and we had cute nights in front of the fire and the television. I would highly recommend without a doubt, and I wouldn't suggest anymore than what there already is. In my opinion its a barn but like a 5* hotel! :D

“A little gem”
Reviewed 17 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

What a wonderful stay we had in Swallow Barn. This gem in Low Ham was five star in the comfort stakes and with all mod cons including dish washer and a washer/dryer. The slate floor is beautiful and the underfloor heating kept the cottage toasty warm on a cold November night. The bedroom was larger than expected with a Queen size bed (huge), nice touches included the dressing gowns in the wardrobe and soap and shower gel in the bathroom. When we arrived at Swallow Barn we found that Ali had left tea, coffee, milk. bread,butter and biscuits so we could have a drink before setting off to Glastonbury Carnival. The attention to detail in all the fixtures and fittings makes Swallow Barn an ideal place to stay. As i said in the title, a little gem

“5 Star quality - So romantic!”
Reviewed 4 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We had the absolute joy of staying here for half term... from the very start Ali couldn't have been any more helpful. On arrival we found the barn to be absolutely beautifully finished, it really is 5 star, there is heated slate floors throughout and a huge cuddley bed. Ali had left out lots of little treats for us and lots of information about the walks and things to do in the area... We had some wonderful days out (helped by the treats and sandwich box that were left for us), and after some advice from Ali, we had a lovely wander up to the local pub one evening which is the most lovely old pub with a log fire.
We cannot wait to come back to Swallow barn, it was the most romantic place especially with the log burner in full swing. You will want for nothing at Swallow barn, it's a real treasure, we cannot recommend enough, it is beautiful!

“Five Star Cottage”
Reviewed 22 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Immaculate recently finished barn conversion retaining character with beams and slate flooring, all fixtures and finishes to high specification. The underfloor heating and log burner were very cosy as the nights started to get a bit colder. The attention to detail and visitor comfort is evident in every corner from the dressing gowns to the delightful choice of outside seating. Quiet rural setting yet surrounded by tourist attractions for all. We had a choice of more National Trust Properties than we could get around in our relaxing short break. Highly recommended.

“A wonderfully relaxed, comfortable, fun time was had by all”
Reviewed 3 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Myself my husband and our energetic border collie wanted somewhere affordable, comfortable and dog friendly set in the countryside but within easy driving distance to the coast and interesting Somerset towns and villages. We hit the jackpot with Swallow Barn, the recently converted barn has been tastefully restored with all mod-cons including dishwasher and washer dryer all appliances, furniture and kitchen utensils are of a very high quality, This theme is repeated throughout, the bedroom with a huge comfortable bed with crisp white cotton bedding and ensuite bathroom with a bath and power shower. The careful attention to detail made for an extremely comfortable stay. The owners Couldn't do enough to ensure that our stay was a happy one, with walking and cycling maps and assistance in reading them, the loan of a couple of bikes if we wanted. We turned up late in the evening and was greeted at the gate by Ali, in the kitchen were pastries fresh crusty bead, butter and juice as well as tea coffee and sugar and milk. There was also a bottle of wine to help us celebrate our wedding anniversary.
We highly recommend Swallow barn and we are hoping to go back in the autumn to sample the log burner in action and underfloor heating.
