    David – 29 Oct 2019
    "A well equipped and comfortable self contained place. Quiet. Lots of birds on the feeder ( including a nuthatch and amazingly a woodpecker). Off road parking metres from the front door. An ideal base for days out to Shrewsbury, Llangollen, Oswestry and several top notch National Trust places.Transport is essential - as was flagged up on the booking site, the nearest shop is 1.5 miles. The pub was a brisk 12 minute walk but beware it’s a 60mph speed limit with little if any pavement - and unlit."
    Janet – 18 Oct 2019
    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Swallows Nest, and were made to feel welcome, whilst still retaining our privacy."
    Mark – 15 Oct 2019
    "Swallows cottage is a beautiful little well appointed cottage set in the owners lovely grounds. We received a warm welcome from Kevin and Jane which extended all week, lovely people, like old friends. A welcome pack was supplied kindly. We felt so very relaxed during our stay, a warm & inviting home to return to after a hard days touring. The cottage is in a quiet location, private. Lots to do and nice base to go explore by car. We have recommended swallows nest to family & friends. We were sad to leave and cannot wait to return. Our best cottage experience ever and we've had many over the years, all down to the owners."

    "We had a wonderful time. Swallows Nest is well situated to visit a wide range of places both in England and Wales.. Beautifully decorated and very cosy"

    "An excellent holiday accommodation and location."
    Katharine – 13 Jul 2019
    "Great little place surrounded by owner's spacious garden and land, with far reaching views. Good location from which to explore the area."

    "Very nice owners lovely location"
    Carol – 24 Jun 2019
    "we had a lovely week swallows nest was one of the best properties we have stayed in Jane and kevin made us very welcome"
    Kay – 25 May 2019
    "Lovely place to stay, very peaceful and owners very friendly and helpful but remote if you like a walk from the door. If you like a walk from the door you have to walk along quite a busy country lane to start. Otherwise if you drive every where it was delightful as easy access to Wales just down the road. Two pubs and a cafe just down the road to eat at and other places within easy reach by car."
    Mike – 9 May 2019
    "Enjoyed our Bank Holiday weekend away at the Swallows nest. The accommodation was excellent, the complimentary items a bonus (particularly the Easter eggs). The area is quiet but not too far off the beaten track. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. The setting was also great, tucked away on the owner’s property with a lovely view across the Shropshire countryside. Went for a wander around the owner’s field and met the chickens and the neighbour’s horses. Well situated for North Shropshire and surrounding areas. The only problem now is finding the time for a return stay."
    Christine & Dennis – 5 May 2019
    "This is a well appointed, spacious and clean accommodation in a very quiet location. Jane and Kevin are lovely hosts being very friendly and informative providing a much appreciated welcome tray. There are lots of places to visit in the area providing good walking opportunities."
    Margaret – 30 Mar 2019
    "Swallow's Nest was an ideal base to explore the surrounding areas. Ideal location for walkers, plenty to choose from the book left by Jane & Kevin. Talking of Jane & Kevin they are wonderful hosts and cannot do enough for you. Swallow's Nest is ideal for two people, plenty of space, very roomy bathroom. The welcome pack very appreciative, we had a fabulous week the weather was extremely kind. Would highly recommend, we shall certainly be returning in the non too distant future."
