My family of 13 together with another family of 13 had a weekend reunion - ages ranging from 2 years to 75 years. We had a magical time at Swallet Farm - the very clean accommodation worked well with plenty of outside tables and chairs for eating al fresco BBQ's - It is situated in a peaceful setting surrounded by fields. The kitchen facilities were good with plenty of fridge/freezer space. There was a huge open fire in the lounge for chilly evenings with plenty of seating - we could not fault our stay and i am sure we will come again!!!!
26 people including children stayed for two nights. Two families who became friends spent several years holidaying together, camping near Hyeres in the South of France. We planned this trip to coincide with. Special birthday celebration. Our children who have their own families and their partners had never met one another before and nor had we all met their children. However it was great and we all got on wonderfully well.
Swallet Farm is designed for large parties and is also a training centre. The accommodation is adequate and includes a toilet and shower area inside with a long dining room seating 20 people and a large kitchen, a freezer room with dishwasher and a large comfortable lounge.
Outside there is table tennis and tables and chairs for barbecue evenings.
We were lucky with the weather and eat outdoors each day. There is also a small copse with a pond and a zip wire tower.
There is plenty of car parking.
If your group is up for memorable time, this is the place to stay.
Superb spot for any stag in the beautiful Mendip Hills. Martin was an excellent host and the property has lots of accommodation and a large dining room which was perfect for our group.
I recently stayed at Swallet Farm as part of a Hen Party, and just wanted to say what a fantastic time we had. The farm is conveniently located just outside of Bristol, so is easy to get to with good transport links. It benefits from being in the middle of the gorgeous Somerset countryside with a lovely local pub close by.
The farmhouse has good amenities and was very clean. We enjoyed a few outdoor activities, including on site abseiling, and the hosts were excellent as talking us through these and ensuring we enjoyed them.
Cannot recommend Swallet Farm highly enough for a similar occasion, would definitely come back again. Thanks for a great weekend!
My Best men had booked Swallet Farm for my Stag Do and this property hits the nail on the head for everything you need. Loads of space, facilities were all in good order and the owners were easy to deal with. Would love to come back, just need an excuse!
What a wonderful place this is - great communal areas for dining our group of 16 and socialising in the big living room by the fire. Perfect for large groups, and plenty of space to accommodate apparently up to 24 people! We had an amazing time, beautiful house in idyllic countryside, close to cheddar gorge, it was a perfect base for some walking and games by the fire in the evenings. Thank you for such a wonderful experience!
Second time staying at Swallet Farm and it continues to improve.
This time indulging in team building events & archery for my team of 13. (Highly recommend booking events, they were executed to a very high standard)
If you're looking for somewhere to take your team away, bring the family together or have a hen/stag do then I'd highly reccomend it.
There's a couple of reviews that mention the temperature & standards, we found the temperature fine in the bedrooms with the radiators on and the two log burners downstairs do the trick.
Standards wise, everything was clean and tidy with fresh linen and towels upon arrival.
It's all as you'd expect from a building of such character.
