Description

Words really cannot describe this stunning barn conversion - if you are looking for a rural location but within easy reach of culture, wildlife and the seaside then simply look no further. Swallows Return is as relaxing and luxurious on the inside as it is on the outside.  The fabulous open plan living space has dual aspect windows and French doors - using natural fabrics and prints to reflect the garden and several outdoor seating areas to make the most of the abundant wildlife and birds.  There is a majestic olive tree in the Mediterranean garden providing shade to the side of the barn, a decked area to the rear with far reaching views over Romney Marsh and a large pond with a small boat.  The property has been furnished to an extremely high standard and comprehensively equipped to make your experience a real home from home.  The coastal town of Hythe is close by as is the miniature railway at Dymchurch and the wartime Martello Tower. Climb the Old Lighthouse at Dungeness, explore the castle at Dover or pack your bicyces and cycle to the beach.  The owners' beautifully designed garden is part of the National Garden Scheme and is open twice a year, where you might find free range hens pecking around. There is also a tennis court at the property for your enjoyment with owner's permission. The property is also accredited by VisitEngland for its Families, Walkers, Cyclists and Pets Scheme.

Reviews

We got married this weekend just up the road at Odds Barn and I couldn't imagine a more perfect place to stay in the run up and after the celebrations. Beautiful location, surprisingly beautiful weather and Swallows return was stunning. Thank you so much for being part of a special weekend we'll remember forever.

Dani, Tom, Alison & Sarah,

Beautiful property with everything you could possibly want for your comfort. The gardens were exceptional it has apple and pear orchards, tennis court and summerhouse, and to top it all a friendly and welcoming owner. Would highly recommend a stay here

Mrs Anne De Gennaro,

Very well equipped, very comfortable, owners friendly and helpful, outstanding grounds, beautiful garden and we all enjoyed the full access to tennis court.
