    Excellent little cottage. Kevin and Jane very welcoming, especially turning up with 6 newly laid eggs when we were taken ill with bad colds. Beautiful part of Shropshire and everywhere in easy reach. Being pet free was a bonus, no nasty smells or hairs on the furniture.

    Swallows Nest was a perfect place for two. The welcome tray was a very nice touch. Kevin and Jane were extremely hospitable and more than happy to suggest places to visit, walk and eat in the area. We will certainly be returning in the future.

    This is a delightful property in a beautiful peaceful rural setting. Kevin & Jane made us so welcome & were so friendly & helpful throughout our stay. The property contains everything you need including a washing machine & is very comfortable. The welcome pack of butter, jam, sugar,tea,coffee,bread,milk not to forget the wine was lovely. There is ample car parking space in front of the cottage. We certainly wouldn't hesitate in staying here again & highly recommend a visit.

    Great location with all the facilities to make it very comfortable. Ideal place to get away from it all and relax as it is nice and peaceful. Lots to do locally, as there are plenty of places to visit and also some great walks for the more active. Oswestry is close which is a very interesting market town with lots of specialised shops and a good market.Wales is on the doorstep which has much to offer. The owners make you most welcome in every way. Would certainly return again.

    Enjoyed our stay in this lovely, cosy, well equipped cottage. It is ideally situated for visiting the many attractions both in Shropshire and North Wales. Kevin and Jane made us very welcome, were very helpful too and pointed us in the direction of some very nice pubs with good food and friendly locals. Although there are no amenities on the doorstep we did not find this to be a problem as there were supermarkets a short drive away in Oswestry. Very much appreciated the welcome pack on arrival after a long journey.

    This is excellent accommodation, very comfortable and most obliging owners. A lot to do in the area within a forty mile radius and if the weather is good the garden is a sun trap. Take enough to eat in as there are not a lot of eateries nearby.
