Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Great accommodation in a good location, couldn’t make best use of the external facilities owing to the weather. June 2012.
  2. We loved our break here and for some reason I thought we were staying on a diary farm but was pleasantly surprised when I found out they had 14 horses with paddocks all around the property. (I must have read the description wrong!) The owners were very friendly and so were the 3 dogs! The decor was very modern and comfortable. May 2012.
  3. Comfortable and cosy accommodation in a lovely spot, with very friendly and welcoming people (and dogs). Easy to get to beaches at Weston, Brean and Burnham and not far from Wells, Cheddar etc. Lovely cream tea too! May 2012.
  4. Property was as described. Made to feel very welcome on arrival and lovely cream tea to start holiday. Nice peaceful location and easy access to some very nice places. Hosts (including the dogs) were very friendly and our young dog loved it. Oct 2011.
  5. I would recommend Swallows Loft, it was lovely and comfortable and very clean. Sept 2011.
  6. Swallows Loft is above a horses’ tack room and the horses are saddled up outside. We could watch them being trained in a nearby paddock. Owners very friendly. Sept 2011.
  7. Beautiful location and accommodation. Cream tea was delicious! Great Holiday. Would recommend to friends and family. Sept 2011.
  8. Swallows loft was absolutely beautiful. The decor was creative and tastefully done down to the finest detail and the location was picturesque. We were also made to feel very welcome. July 2011.
  9. Ours was a four-night stay, and with only three full days in Somerset this was an ideal location to spend a day on the coast, another in The Levels and the third on the Mendip hills. The accommodation was more spacious and even better presented than the photographs suggested; the verandah provided a large extension to the living space with a great view. Prior to arrival, we did have some concerns about the proximity of the motorway, but it was barely audible even outdoors and not at all indoors with the windows closed; it also seemed relatively little used at night. The owners are lovely people with a passion for animals. Our dog was welcomed just as warmly as we were, and we could wander in their fields at will, often accompanied by the youngest of their three dogs. If our experience is the norm, another Gold Award for this year seems on the cards. June 2011.
  10. Beautifully presented, excellent facilities. Cosy. Feb 2011.
  11. Beautiful accommodation and surroundings, will definitely be revisiting some time soon. Nov 2010.

  13. Attention to detail, more than adequate kitchen facilities, location, friendliness and helpfulness of owners. A gem of a property. Nice extra touches for example toiletries in bathroom, cream tea on arrival, beautiful bed linen and towels. July 2010.
  14. Clean, well equipped with utensils etc, comfortable bed and sofa, cream tea on arrival made us feel welcome. Certain basics provided... tea, coffee and toilet rolls. June 2010.
  15. High standard of accommodation, well presented and clean. Owners very friendly and helpful. May 2010.
