WOW! Thank you so much for a wonderful stay in Swallows Roost. Such a beautiful location and a cosy, comfortable home for a week. We all so enjoyed the skylarks each day and all the surrounding nature and wildlife. We also appreciate that our youngest was able to get up close with the horses. We visited Lavernham, Long Melford, Dedham, Jimmy's farRead morem and Banham zoo. We also went to Clacton on Sea and enjoyed all our days out. We hope to come back soo. Thank you so much again. Hide

Swallow's Roost was a perfect spot to relax and reflect. There are endless horizons with the mood changing with the weather. We loved the huge pigeon flock and chance visits by a pied wagtail and pheasants. The accommodation is very comfortable and the hosts friendly and helpful. This is an ideal place to relax and recharge.

We had a wonderful time at this property. We knew it was on a working farm and hoped this meant we would see lots of wildlife and we were not disappointed. It was also in a lovely area of Suffolk which we picked as we wanted to see Constable Country and we were not disappointed with the surrounding area. Would highly recommend this property.
