“Fabulous apartment in a peaceful Cotswolds location”
Reviewed June 5, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Paul's apartment is amazing, with lovely modern calm decor, lots of space, all the facilities that you need for a short break and the extra touches that Paul and his wife put into the place were brilliant, anything that you may or could forget is already provided - very considerate. The location is just beautiful, with no sight of any properties even in the distance, the only visable living things were the sheep and alpacas! A simply delightful place which we will defindately return to and we can't recommended highly enough.

“Beautiful and peaceful place to stay”
Reviewed September 3, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Swallows is a lovely place to stay, with beautiful scenery and lovely hosts.
We arrived to a warm welcome from paul and he showed us everything we needed to know about swallows and the surrounding area. The studio flat is cosy yet very spacious and has an atmosphere that made us relaxed straight away. Perfect stay for a weekend get away in the country side! Location also very good, close to borton-on-the-water, winchcombe and cheltenham.

Overall, we would definitely reccomend staying here!

“A room with a view”
Reviewed November 13, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Roel Hill Farm is situated in the middle of beautiful open countryside. We particularly enjoyed the walk down to Hawling. It's an easy, scenic drive to Winchcombe, Bourton and Stow.
The apartment is very comfortable and had everything we needed, as well as a great look-out over the fields and sheep.
Special mention to Paul and the two dogs for making this a wonderful stay.

We spent three nights at Swallows. What a lovely time we had - the accommodation was perfect. Clean, comfortable and quiet with our own decked balcony and entrance. Lovely setting and views and very accommodating and friendly owners. An arrival pack awaited us with everything we would need if we hadn't bought our own supplies (tea/coffee/fruit/biscuits etc). Near to Winchcombe (about three miles) which is an excellent base to explore the Cotswolds - also has several pubs/restaurants. Definitely would return to this accommodation when visiting the area again.

Liked best: Being in the heart of the countyside
Liked least: Wifi/internet access was very limited. My husband would have like more access to this. A single hob would have been useful when cooking breakfast..

Warm and cosy with gorgeous views and a perfect peaceful setting nestling on top of the Cotswolds Hills.
Everything you could possibly need from comfy beds to books and a choices of water in the fridge.
We were made extremely welcome and nothing was too much trouble to ensure we had a truly comfortable stay.

“Ideal weekend retreat”
Reviewed December 7, 2015 for a stay in October 2015
2
people found this review helpful

I stayed at Swallows for just one night as myself and my girlfriend were attending a wedding nearby. The accommodation was ideal - clean, comfortable, large and perfectly positioned for a nice walk the next day. Paul was extremely responsive and helpful when we made our (many) requests regarding taxis etc, which was really good of him considering we only stayed one night. The property ended up being very easy to find and nicely separated from the main house so we didn't feel like we were intruding anyone else's space. We really regretted that we weren't staying longer and aim to be back for a real weekend escape. Recommended!

“A gem in beautiful countryside, highly recommend”
Reviewed December 3, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Extremely tasteful and well equipped studio flat, beautifully warm and spotlessly clean. Rural location, lovely views and walks. Made very welcome and nothing was too much trouble for host Paul. Delightful Cotswold villages and small towns easily accessible. Would highly recommend if you love the countryside, crave peace and the chance to "escape" for a few days.
