A fantastic break! The accommodation was superb, excellent WiFi to keep kids happy. The pool was superb. I had to contact the owner for advice and she was extremely helpful. This is an excellent base to explore Plymouth, Newton abbot, Paignton zoo. Exceptional value and I will definitely book again.

What an excellent cottage,for a short break or longer you get great feeling of being safe with children and relaxaction. Lovely location but close to shops day trips out. But best thing is where the cottage is situated you have everything for children to be happy and lots to do like - indoor swimming pool, Park,lots of space to play. OVERALL BLOODY BRILLIANT

“Great Cottage at anytime of the year”
Reviewed February 7, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Just spent another week at Swift Cottage. It is cosy and has everything you can possibly need for a self-catering cottage and the bonus is the indoor heated pool and games room. I will be booking again for 2015.

“Tranquil Setting in Ideal Cottage”
Reviewed February 4, 2015 for a stay in June 2013

This was our second time at Swift Cottage and as expected it was as good as the first time. The cottage is very comfortable, well maintained and everything was provided with all the home comforts, ideal for a perfect self catering holiday.
The on site facilities of the heated swimming pool and games room (just 20 feet from the back door of the cottage) are great, especially if it is raining! The external children's play area is well maintained and 100% safe. Fantastic views over the fields and so peaceful, just what we needed from the stresses of work.
The Coast was just a few miles away and the nearby towns with a variety of 'small' shops, are delightful. Plenty of restaurants/ cafes / pubs for all tastes. Try the boat trip from Totnes to Dartmouth, returning on the steam train to Paignton and then bus back to Totnes - a super day out.

Would we go back to Swift Cottage for another holiday - you bet we will!
