Really would like to keep this place a secret. Wonderful homemade cake and tea on arrival and all I could say was "Wow" when we were shown our room It was large, spotless, had the most comfortable bed, solid classy furniture, a fantastic choice of teas, coffees etc., plus fresh milk (and other drinks) in the fridge, daily biscuit treats...

My husband and I stayed 12/13 August 2015, and the quality was exceptional. Best breakfast in England (possibly the Western World). The bedrooms were beautifully clean and comfortable. I had the best 2 nights sleep I have had in years. Neither of us could fault Swan Hill House.

The owners were very friendly and hospitable, including booking us a table for a great meal at the local pub, storing our bikes, and plying us with... More
