“An oasis of calm.”
I cannot recommend Swans highly enough. I was looking for peace and quiet and I found it. The owner was so welcoming and had thought of everything. The location is gorgeous, with the Wye flowing at the bottom of the garden. My forays into Wales took under an hour. The drive through the Wye Valley to Brecon was astonishing. So beautiful. Hereford is 20 minutes away; a terrific balance of country and city. The apartment has underfloor heating so it's warm and cosy whatever the weather is doing. I had daily visits from a robin and a wren. In summer this area will be mind blowing. Get booking!!
we have stayed in many cottages/apartments throughout the uk and some in france and found THE SWANS an excellent location for peace and quiet total bliss,the apartment itself was immaculate on arrival and I hope we left it as we found it Denise the owner was on hand for all the local information we needed and was an excellent host. for peace and quiet and a total chill out we can highly recommend the SWANS outstanding. thank you DENISE hope to see you in october
