Swallows Byre

By Helen on 02-Jan-2021

January 2021 Swallows Byre, amazing views, cosy, warm We had great long weekend over a very cold New Year and the cottage was lovely and cosy with the fire going. Beautiful views across the valley, especially followingthe snow. It would be great to go back in the summer to enjoy the terrace and garden. Dorothy is a great host, very quick to respond and very helpful. The cottage is very well equipped, everything you need in the kitchen, a comfy bed (great views from your bed) and a bath which was most welcome after a cold winter walk. Definitely recommend. read less

Beautiful walks nearby and a lovely cosy coal fire to enjoy in the evenings. Spotlessly clean and very well equipped- would definitely recommend. read less
