The quiet Eden village of Skirwith is home to Swallow's Rest, a beautiful barn conversion for two people. This characterful self catering cottage is perfect for a romantic getaway as the interior has been lovingly refurbished to provide a high quality, luxurious oasis. The owners of Swallow's Rest have renovated the interior to a high standard, exposing the original roof trusses and purlins and creating a contemporary yet cosy space for two. The barn is built from the local Eden sandstone, with a beautiful external staircase leading to the entrance door.
Swallow's Rest does not accept children, infants or pets and is therefore perfect for an adult getaway, enjoying a glass of wine or two at the top of the steps, or snuggling up on the sofa in front of the woodburner.
Swallows Rest is situated on the first floor of a barn conversion and is reached via an external sandstone staircase. The living area is open plan with a fitted kitchen, contemporary dining area and sitting room. A shaker style kitchen is fully equipped with integrated dishwasher, washer dryer, electric oven/hob, fridge and microwave. The dining area has a soild oak table with leather chairs making for a very luxurious dining experience.

Wireless internet is available throughout the property and there is an Ipod dock in the sitting room.
The beautifully appointed bedroom is furnished with a metal framed double bed and high quality free standing furniture. The roof trusses and purlins have been exposed and restored.
In the luxury bathroom a bath with a large fixed shower head over has been fitted along with a hand wash basin and a wc. the towel rail is centrally heated. The luxurious nature of the bathroom has been fitted with pampering in mind and is the perfect place to unwind after a long day out enjoying one of the many activities this part of Cumbria has to offer.

A beautiful place to stay on our first visit to the Lakes. The welcome hamper was much appreciated and well thought out, the cottage is well equipped, warm and comfortable.
We chose to stay here for our 25th wedding anniversary. The surrounding places to visit are stunning and the food and service at the Shepherds Inn was very nice. All in all a totally relaxing stay, just what we needed.
