“Mrs”
Reviewed 24 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We have just returned from a wonderful weekend at Swallows Orchard, a party of seven ladies, to celebrate my sister getting married. We all had a fantastic time and were completely overwhelmed by the beautiful house, the fantastic hot tub and the spa which was just a few feet away. Relaxation in beautiful and quiet surroundings, bliss.
I would definitely return and have already recommended to friends and family.

Liked least: Beds - low with protruding wooden bedframes causing bruised legs until you got used to them being wider than the mattress! Would recommend zip link beds for any future developments - more versatile and with no hard wooden bedframes!

“Sophisticated, Special Bridal Shower Weekend”
Reviewed 6 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

From booking to checking out - everything about our weekend at Swallow's Orchard was excellent.

We were met by the lovely Ed who showed us round the property and Spa, explaining everything we might need and leaving us our key. Bottles of cider and delicious shortbread on the kitchen table waiting for us were a lovely touch too.

The house was very clean and had everything we could need for the weekend. As there were 7 of us and the house actually sleeps 6 a temporary bed had been provided which was perfectly comfortable and adequate for the weekend.
The hot tub in the garden was a popular feature and fit the 7 of us in perfectly without too much of a squish!

The Sedum Spa was perfect for a relaxing Bridal Shower. The treatments were excellent, good value and very relaxing! The Relaxation Room was perfect for gently coming round from a massage too. The pool and sauna were spotless and although we didn't actually use the gym or changing rooms, they were both very clean and well stocked. We did all appreciate the towels, robes and flip flops provided at the Spa for lounging around before and after our treatments.

Everyone in our party adored Swallow's Orchard and we are already planning a return - highly recommend and definitely a 5* property, location and customer service.

“Amazing and Faultless”
Reviewed 8 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Swallow's Orchard ticked every box for a fantastic family holiday...our accommodation was first class and we wanted for nothing...beautifully presented and spotlessly clean, we settled in straight away and even the dog didn't want to leave.

We made full use of the spa...in particular, the swimming pool (with the great idea of designated 'noisy time' twice in day) was amazing, both our children couldn't wait to get in there every day...treatments in the spa were terrific too.

All the staff were polite and helpful, I couldn't recommended Swallows Orchard highly enough.

Thank you so much for the great review of Swallows Orchard and we are really glad that the facilities met your requirements. The dedicated 'noisy time' for kids has been really well received so we are pleased that this also suited you. We hope to see you again in the future.

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 12 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

This was a fantastic find. Beautiful 5* accommodation, clean and well equipped. The staff were vey helpful and made organising the hen party very easy. The spa next door and the hot tub in the garden were an added bonus. I will be recommending it to other friends not only for hen parties but also for a country escape.
