We stayed for three nights in May and really could not fault anything. The room was very clean and tidy and well decorated, it was also bigger than we expected. The breakfasts set us up well the day, all local produce with more choice that we have been offered in most places. Finally, Simon and Libby are ideal hosts, from...

We had a night here as part of our river cottage visit and it was excellent. Very friendly and welcoming people, lovely clean and large rooms, and fantastic breakfast - all at a very reasonable price. You can't go wrong with this place if you tried.

Arrived to a very warm and friendly welcome. Accommodation finished to a very high standard. Very clean and comfortable. The homemade biscuits were a nice touch and very tasty too. A good section of locally sourced items were on offer for breakfast, including homemade granola and Berry smoothie to name a few. I would highly recommend a stay here.

My husband and I stayed at Swan Hill House for one night in room 7. Everything from start to finish was excellent. Our stay couldn't have been more enjoyable. A lovely place to stay and really great value for money. On arrival we parked in the dedicated car park and were warmly welcomed by Simon who showed us around and...

We stayed at Swan Hill for five nights while we attended a course at River Cottage. We had the most amazing breakfast specials using the best quality locally sourced produce. The home made bread, cakes and biscuits just some of those little touches that make the stay with Simon & Libby a good touch above the rest, including the boutique...

... and *every* stay is excellent. Very comfortable bed, splendid breakfasts (the daily 'special' is always worth considering) and excellent service from the delightful Simon & Libby. Naturally we have already booked for our 2016 spring break.

I could not have chosen a better place to stay, from the moment that I first booked and realised I had booked for 2016 by mistake to the moment we left with our home made fudge the owner could not have been more helpful. When we arrived we were offered tea and cake which I am sure was home made,...
