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.

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.

Thank you
