House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Swallow's Orchard represents modern living at its very best. Nestled in a hollow next to an old apple orchard, you can feel like you have truly escaped whilst being surrounded by luxury. With 3 en-suite bedrooms all located on the same level it is easily accessible and sleeps 6 in quality more akin with a 5 star hotel with a private hot tub - only one you don't have to share...
The Sedum Spa is a shared facility located next to the property provides our guests with the chance to completely get away from it all with; a 12x5m chlorine free indoor pool, sauna, Nordic hot tub, relaxation room, pool lounging area, 4 treatment rooms (wide range of treatments available), Gym, separate male & female changing rooms.
The stunning open plan kitchen/dining/living area at the property with 5 metre bi-folding doors connect the inside with the enclosed courtyard garden with hot tub and really give you the sense of being in the thick of nature and countryside, without sacrificing comfort or quality.
The interior was designed to be tactile and distinct wherever possible - from the wood grain kitchen units with stunning white quartz work surface through to the 'waterfall wall' granite rocks in the master bedroom. Care and attention to detail are key to our design philosophy, and every single element of the property has been researched, discussed and scrutinised to ensure an experience like no other.

The West Country region
Located in the beautiful open countryside, close to Glastonbury, the properties enjoy magnificent views of the Tor. Nearby Longleat safari park offers a unique day out, driving in and amongst the lions and rhinos. Whilst for the architecturally minded, the World Heritage Site of Bath and, Wells the smallest city in England with its beautiful Cathedral, are within a short driving distance. The area also boasts such attractions as Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole caves, The Fleet Air Arm Museum and Haynes Motor Museum.
Glastonbury is famous for it's ancient history. Joseph of Arimathea (Jesus' great uncle) visited Glastonbury following Jesus' death and legend has it that this was the resting place for the holy grail. A few centuries after this King Arthur was buried at the foot of Glastonbury Tor (Avalon) and legend has it he still roams around the Abbey ruins! Either way, Glastonbury is a hive for spirituality and an alternative way of life. One visit to the town will make this abundantly obvious. It does have a great deal of charm though and of course all the necessary amenities. The area is probably best known for Glastonbury Festival which is a couple of miles from the property.
The surrounding fields offer a host of walking routes if you are feeling active, with a good pub located 1 mile from the property should you need a break on the way. If not, just relax and go to the spa or light the wood burner and put your feet up, soak in the private massaging hot tub, or if the weather permits snuggle up around the outside fire pit - your choice... decisions, decisions.

"Swallows Orchard - So much more than you could wish for"
Initially we felt this accommodation was on the pricey side. However, having experienced the accommodation and facilities of Swallows Orchard, we feel that it was worth every penny.
Pool and spa facilities are superb and everyone made us feel extremely welcome and relaxed.
Accommodation had everything you could ask for. Suited all ages and our Golden Retriever loved it. We all felt at home.
Thank you for your kind words about Swallow's Orchard. I'm so pleased you had a good stay and Bob felt at home. We hope to see you again sometime. Paul & the team.

"Modern, clean, comfortable with great facilities on site."
Plenty of room to sleep six in three bedrooms. Enough space in the open plan kitchen living room to host a birthday party with eleven further daytime guests. Good weather allowed us to have the large sliding doors open to the garden, hot tub and barbecue. Garden is enclosed and safe for small children.
Plenty to see around from local walks through the adjacent cider farm and up Glastonbury Tor, to drives out to many places of interest. Good local pubs and restaurants.
On site gym, swimming pool and sauna all clean and well equipped and maintained; beauty/ health treatments not tried but available if desired.
Great standard of decoration, well equipped kitchen, sky TV, WIFI. Both ourselves and three teenage children would visit again.
Thank you for your kind words about Swallows Orchard and the Sedum Spa. It's great that you had a good break and made the most of the facilities and the property, including the bi-fold doors that really make the property special. We hope to see you again in the future. Many thanks Ed and The Woodlands Retreats Team

"Lost for words"
The accommodation was amazing, underfloor heating, wood burner, Sky TV. Swallows Orchard was decorated beautifully and had its own garden and hot tub which was great for me and my freinds to spend time in in the evening. The spa was on our doorstep. only drawback was another group staying didn't treat the pool area as a spa, more like a leisure centre. perhaps some more visible notices could be placed around the pool area. We had a great time regardless and enjoyed our massage treatments. Will definitely being planning to stay again
We're really glad that you had a good time at Swallows Orchard and hope to see you again in the future. We have placed some more visible signs in the Spa so that other guests are aware of when treatments are going on and the need to keep the noise level down.
Many thanks from Ed and The Woodlands Retreats Team

"The celebratory break"
Six of us rented this property for three nights as a base for a 70th birthday celebration in Bath. Road diversions delayed two of the party but the owner was in text communication and very friendly and obliging when eventually we arrived.
The property is large and tastefully furnished; the spa adjacent has everything we needed. The ability to end a busy day with a massage, swim and sauna and ultimately settle into a hot tub with a glass of champagne was wonderful!
We want to go back as soon as possible, with or without a good reason.
Thank you very much for your kind comments. We are so glad that we were able to help you celebrate your special birthday in style and we certainly hope to see you again at some point in the future. Paul and the Woodlands Team

"You must stay here"
This property is amazing, we could not fault anything there. Beautifully decorated, very clean, every detail thought of. When we go on holiday, the one rule we have is 'It must be better than our own home' and this property did not disappoint. Stunning pool and spa. Wonderful countryside. Also, the guys who manage the property could not be more helpful. We will definitely go there again, and have already recommended it to family and friends.
We would really appreciate your recommendations and are so pleased that you had a good stay. Paul & the team.

I cannot rate Swallow's Orchard highly enough. The booking system was painless and the responses from Ed were extremely prompt and friendly.The location of the property is ideal for a relaxing break. Set amid the beautiful Somerset countryside, the Barn has been renovated to an extremely high standard, beautifully decorated and very well equipped with up to date appliances. The standard of cleanliness was second to none.
The Spa is amazing and many happy hours were spent in the swimming pool and sauna. A great deal of thought has gone into catering for our creature comforts. Again the level of cleanliness was of a very high standard.
The Hot Tub in the garden was used many times and the garden furniture again was of a high standard.
We were able to take two of our dogs and a cage was provided.
We had a wonderful time and were very sorry to leave. We will certainly be back.
We're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to see you again in the future! Paul & the team

"Perfect UK honeymoon"
We booked our honeymoon at Swallow's Orchard with high hopes - and it was everything we'd dreamed of and more! We wanted a luxury holiday that was also dog friendly and this it was. Our reti… More
We're really pleased you enjoyed your honeymoon staying with us especially considering it was such a special occasion. Apologies about the flies, they all seemed to emerge at once during your stay due to the hot weather in July. We're pleased to say that this is no longer the case, but we do have fly lights on standby just in case this happens again.
