"Lovely little cottage, perfectly located just a minute from the main village square. Everything was as described, spick and span and when I locked us all out (doh) the communication and response was first rate. Indeed communication was great throughout, and I look forward to our next stay at Swallow's Nest as it's only one road from my sister :)"
