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

This was our second visit to Swallows Return. We cannot fault anything and our hosts, Bill & Penny are perfect!Mrs K.M. Payne - 18th August 2019
Lovely to explore a part of the country which is not crowded with tourists. Mrs Jane Farrington - 29th June 2019
Both the standard of the property and helpfulness of the owners were outstanding.Mr David Townley - 30th May 2019
Swallows Return is a wonderfully comfortable and very well furnished cottage in a quiet location. The owners are welcoming and helpful hosts and their extensive garden is fantastic. This was our first visit to this part of Kent and we were not disappointed by the beautiful countryside, which is great for cycling as it is relatively flat. There are plenty of interesting things to see in the surrounding area, although most required a car journey of at least 30 minutes; a small price to pay for staying in such a quiet spot. I found dealing with Kent & Sussex Holiday Cottages very easy and the staff are friendly and efficient. Dr Graham Place - 25th May 2019
Absolutely fantastic place. We were made so welcome.Mrs Alison Hoffman - 22nd April 2019

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
