Overview

Even Lewis Carroll would have envied the wonderland that awaits you at Swallows Return. From the imposing wood clad barn to the stunning outdoor spaces and gardens, welcome to another world for a while.

Blissful abode

Swallows Return is one of a kind. A design eye has touched every element of what you see and experience when you stay here, all you have to do is relax. Wander through the Mediterranean garden at the front of the property and wonder when the olives will fall from the most majestic of trees. You’ll find welcome shade in this part of the garden on the hottest of days while the decking to the rear soaks up the sun and views over Romney Marsh, and leads to the vast garden and understated pond beyond. Fenced for safety but with a boat for your use, paddle on the pond as Carroll once punted with Alice and let your imagination go.

Inside, Swallows Return is a wondrous creation of rustic flooring, warm oak furniture and fabrics that ooze style and references to the flora, fauna and wildlife outdoors. Settle in the sitting room with its stylish Italian sofa and trunk of games. While away the hours to a soundtrack of your choosing through the Bose sound system or catch up on those Netflix episodes under a blanket. The contemporary touches in the dining room and kitchen will call all to dinner on time or for that first proper coffee of the day from the Nespresso machine. The doors open onto the decking and you may be drawn to stay a while. The setting is simply so impressive, the free range hens that wander the garden are a delight and the tennis court you can ask to you use could enthrall you all enough to stay home despite best laid plans.

Bedrooms and bathrooms

There are three bedrooms on the first floor of Swallows Returns while the shower room is located on the ground floor. The master bedroom has a gorgeous wooden king size bedstead and its own shower room. Turn the radio on and a hens egg breakfast in bed is called for. There is also a double bedroom and twin bedroom with beautiful and ample storage.

Practicalities

There is a fenced pond at this property and children should be supervised at all times.

Thank you very much for your warm welcome and hospitality. We really enjoyed our time in your wonderful barn with the amazing garden with thousands of blooming daffodils, with the chickens and the guinea pigs. On our holidays we are always looking for calm and here we found it.Karlstruhe from Germany - 25th March 2017
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The beauty of both the home and the gardens for very early spring are magnificent. Thank you for the warm welcome, the delicious eggs and the peaceful quiet nights. So we feel spoiled all around.Abbema Family - 4th March 2017
A magical setting for a very high standard house. And lovely hosts too. Couldn't have been more comfortable. We'd certainly love to return!Ms Andrea Chandler - 7th October 2016
The property is of a very high standard and provides the space and comfort that results in an exceptionally comfortable and relaxing stay. The gardens are a delight and afford a high level of privacy.Mrs T Duffy - 31st July 2016
Beautiful house, stunning garden. Equipped and decorated to a very high standard.Mr A Eades - 31st July 2016
The house was everything we hoped it would be. Clean, comfortable, well furnished and peaceful and with a lovely inspiring garden. Plenty of interesting placed to visit. Thank you.D. S. Deldaele - 15th July 2016
You can expect a warm welcome from the homeowners at Swallows Return. We had travelled half way around the world and the cottage was beautifully prepared, even down to tea and biscuits and fresh homemade apple juice. It was the exact peaceful break we needed. We highly recommend Swallows Return for a stay in the Kent countryside. Thank you for a lovely stay. We would definitely return here for a holiday.Naomi Battle - 30th June 2016
Lovely barn conversion with all mod cons, free wifi & sky tv. Beautiful garden with wisteria walkway, natural and formal area's. The homeowners made us feel very welcome and are a lovely approachable couple. If you want a peaceful weekend or a longer holiday break on the edge of Romney Marsh, this is for you. I would have no hesitation in recommending to my friends. My wife and I will definitely be back in the not too distant future.John Mitchell - 6th June 2016
Very well furnished and attention to detail was great.Mrs L Smith - 11th May 2016
