    Great little cottage. Well equipped and the use of a large secure field to exercise our dog was a bonus. The cottage was cosy and had everything we needed, it was in a good position to visit Stratford and the Cotswolds. We would highly recommend it.

    Welcoming, cosy cottage and immaculately clean cottage. Very well equipped and with all home comforts and fantastic garden for the dogs as well as access to the owner’s field for dog exercise. Lovely welcome treats for humans and dogs. Christmas decorations were a thoughtful touch. Easy access to Bidford village for shops and takeaways and miles of riverside and field walks from the Big Meadow car park. Fabulous breakfast menu at the Blenheim garden centre next door. The only drawback is the proximity to the very busy road - not an issue in winter or if out and about all day in warmer weather.

    A Lovely cottage although a little near the main road. The owners were extremely helpful when our original booked cottage let us down at the last minute. We would recommend the Swallows Barn to anyone looking for a nice place to stay with their pets.

    Great property, one of the cleanest we have used. Friendly owners and loved the animals. Good location for lots of places. Watch out for the mobile speed cameras, cost us £100 and 3 points!! Description should say that the property backs onto a very busy and noisy road, did nto really bother us but is is there from early morning.

    Comfortable barn but the road was so close and very noisy. Not what we were expecting at all.

    A really comfortable home from home . Everything was of an extremely high standard. Perhaps a chair in the master bedroom would be a good addition, otherwise we can’t fault it.

    Excellent clean, comfortable cottage with everything you could possibly need. Lovely thoughtful welcome tray. The location is a mile from Bidford which is a lovely place with pubs, take aways, convenience stores, a playground, a lovely walk along the river. Only one downside, the cottage is located on a busy sometimes noisy road. Howeverit would not put us off from staying again.

    Although this cottage is presented to a good standard, I cannot understand the amazingly good reviews. If you want to be located between a very noisy B road and clucking turkeys, chickens and geese, then this is the place for you. The cottage was well equipped with extras you may not expect, but unfortunately this does not really do anything to improve what is a very dull and drab lounge. Our stay during a week of fantastic weather was spoilt by not being able to return after a busy day and just relax in a peaceful and quiet garden.

    Brilliant holiday with our 2 dogs Banjo and Tippy, Swallows Barn was perfect for us to explore The Cotswolds. The house was well set up, stylish and luxurious, the orchard and farm perfect, would highly recommend

    A very comfortable and cosy accommodation, very clean, tastefully decorated. Warm, comfortable beds, lots of hot water. My only comment is that although the equipment was sufficient for 4 people, extra glasses, China, serving dishes, jugs etc would have been appreciated. One of the kitchen chairs was broken, but as we were only 3 it was not an issue for us.

    The place was so clean and homely. The only problem we had was there was no internet but this was raised and hopefully sorted out for the next guests. The eggs and chocolates on arrival was a nice surprise and seeing the ducks, geese, turkeys and other farm animals out the window was relaxing. Would definitely recommend to others to stay.
