“Staying at Swallow Barn is like visiting a favourite aunt. The superlative accommodation in beautiful grounds, attention to detail, kindness, and love of life shown by Joan Carey is unsurpassable.”.

I hope to see you this time next year!

This is a lovely place to stay if you want home from home.  I stayed with my mother for two nights visiting the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show.  We arrived after a long journey to have a welcome cup of tea and dip in the pool.

Joan recommended two excellent local restaurants and made bookings for us each night.

We were only a short drive from Hampton Court yet after  long hot day at the show were able to spend the late afternoon having a second wonderful swim in the pool and tea in the garden.

The sitting room was a bonus.  Not flash, just bliss.

Thank you Joan.
