What our guests say

April 2017

ur midweek break at Swift Cottage was a genuine "home from home" for two small boys who thrilled at having the pool, the quiet indoor play area, and the playground, literally outside of their door. The small cluster of cottages was quiet and safe, offering a perfect environment for little ones.

Mt daughter and I were equally delighted with Swift. The obvious factors of cleanliness, warmth, and comfort all scored highly, but a lot of thought has also been given to providing a real home environment - toys and DVD's, biscuits and hot drinks, a full set of decent quality cooking equipment.....the list could go on, but was certainly topped by the welcome bottle of wine!

I am planning to book again next year, and we will certainly be recommending Swift Cottage to friends.

What an excellent cottage,for a short break or longer you get great feeling of being safe with children and relaxaction. Lovely location but close to shops day trips out. But best thing is where the cottage is situated you have everything for children to be happy and lots to do like - indoor swimming pool, Park,lots of space to play. OVERALL BLOODY BRILLIANT

Wonderful Week at Swift Cottage
5 out of 5 - HomeAway (Owners Direct)
We stayed at Swift Cottage for the May half term. In our party there was myself, my 11 year old daughter, my mum and our 2 year old Cocker Spaniel. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Swift Cottage. It was like home from home and had everything that you could possibly need. The cottage was very comfortable and very clean. We had wonderful weather so we could go for some long walks along the country lanes. I would highly recommend Swift Cottage to anyone who wants a complete break away from it all. We will be certainly making a return visit to Swift Cottage! May 2015

Lovely place to stay in a great location

Really enjoyed our stay in this lovely place. Jacquie the owner was especially helpful with all aspects of the stay from beginning to end. The barn was very comfortable and we enjoyed the use of the impressive pool. Hope to stay again in future- thanks so much - February 2015

Just spent another week at Swift Cottage. It is cosy and has everything you can possibly need for a self-catering cottage and the bonus is the indoor heated pool and games room. I will be booking again for 2015.

SWIFT COTTAGE. PERFECT COTTAGE. PERFECT LOCATION !
5 out of 5 - HomeAway (Owners Direct)
After returning from a four day break at Swift Cottage I am now fully relaxed and checking my diary to see when I can return. The cottage is extremely comfortable and has everything you could possibly need for a self-catering holiday and more. The bonus is the heated indoor pool and games room to keep all ages entertained whatever the weather !! Swift Cottage is located in a beautiful setting and ideal for families and all who want to retreat to a quiet area in the surrounding hills of South Hams but with the advantage of being within a 15 minute drive to the stunning Devon coastline with all its attractions. I will definitely return to this idyllic cottage and spend more time exploring this beautiful area including the nearby town of Totnes with its vibrant cafes, organic produce and an eclectic range of traditional and modern craft shops. Fun was had by all !

WONDERFUL COTTAGE WITH EVERYTHING YOU NEED
5 out of 5 - HomeAway (Owners Direct)
Lovely cottage that comes with everything you need.
Items like dishwasher tablets, kitchen roll, washing up liquid etc. were all provided - in fact everything in my resources box was not needed.
Cottage is in a rural location, down 1.5 miles of country lane.
Swimming pool (indoor) is 5 yards from the back door.
Downstairs bedroom with 2 single beds, and upstairs bedroom with a large bed. Both bedrooms have their own en-suite shower room and TV.
Nearest town is Totnes, with Newton Abbot, Torquay & Paignton easily accessible.

ONE OF THE BEST COTTAGES EVER!
5 out of 5 HomeAway (Owners Direct)
From the moment we arrived I knew that we would enjoy our stay! We have been to many cottages in the past and have always wished that we had brought that extra thing with us, whether it be a sharp knife or a bin bag. This cottage has it all. The owner has literally thought of everything to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Our welcome pack was great and had everything that you would want to start you off. There is absolutely nothing negative that I can say and will definitely recommend you to anyone that is travelling down to Devon. Thank you so much!

BEAUTIFUL COTTAGE IN A TRANQUIL SETTING
5 out of 5 HomeAway (Owners Direct)
This was my second vacation in Swift Cottage and again I was not disappointed. The cottage is extremely comfortable with everything you and the family could possibly require. On this visit the two en-suites had been totally refurbished to a very high specification and they were a delight to use.
The on site facilities of the heated indoor pool, games room and the external children's play area are all to a very high standard especially the pool and we all enjoyed these facilities especially when it rained for one day.
Swift cottage is situated in a complex of 9 holiday cottages, set in the hills of South Devon. Completely safe for young children to play in a communal area with their friends.
You reach Swift Cottage via the Devon country lanes and when you arrive it is a haven of tranquility. We will be booking Swift Cottage again in 2015.

“Tranquil Setting in Ideal Cottage”
Reviewed February 4, 2015 for a stay in June 2013
5 star - Holiday Lettings
This was our second time at Swift Cottage and as expected it was as good as the first time. The cottage is very comfortable, well maintained and everything was provided with all the home comforts, ideal for a perfect self catering holiday.
The on site facilities of the heated swimming pool and games room (just 20 feet from the back door of the cottage) are great, especially if it is raining! The external children's play area is well maintained and 100% safe. Fantastic views over the fields and so peaceful, just what we needed from the stresses of work.
The Coast was just a few miles away and the nearby towns with a variety of 'small' shops, are delightful. Plenty of restaurants/ cafes / pubs for all tastes. Try the boat trip from Totnes to Dartmouth, returning on the steam train to Paignton and then bus back to Totnes - a super day out.
Would we go back to Swift Cottage for another holiday - you bet we will!

October 2013 - Absolutely fantastic. Loved it. Very peaceful and relaxing. Very clean and well equipped. Definitely hope to return and would definitely recommend it to other people. Might have to check out your place in Aldeburgh. Thank you very much. Brown family - Halstead, Essex

August 2013 - Really nice cottage, lots to do if you have a car. Paignton zoo was ace, really good day out. Facilities at cottage were good. Pool was really good, always had it to ourselves. Games room is good too, needed more ping pong balls though. Cottage was very clean and good facilities e.g. dishwasher, washing machine, country roads were tricky to navigate, overall this is a really good cottage and we would definitely recommend it. Excellent facilities and location, thank you. PS Lola - the dog- loved her holiday and treats. Mann family - Yorkshire

May 2013 - The cottage was lovely - before coming we were a little bit worried about the dangers of a spiral staircase etc. with a very curious 15month old, but all was fabulous. We were very unlucky with the weather so were very grateful for pool and games room - so much for Harry to play with and practice walking. Thoughts of our stay included 'Round Robin' Totnes - Dartmouth Steam / river cruise, Berryhead and Brixham and Salcombe Beach at Blackpool Sands was beautiful too. Boulton family - Sheffield

May 2013 - Our second visit to Swift Cottage and everything was as great as we remembered. It's a great base for the surrounding area - our number one day was the Dartmoor Pony Centre in Moretanhampsted. Pool and games room once more a great asset. Starkey family - Chessington, Surrey.
