Now with exclusive access to private swimming pool access!! Bookable Offsite (2 minutes drive)
In the heart of the countryside but only 25 minutes from Nottingham, 15 minutes Melton Mowbray, Grantham and 30 minutes from Newark. The house can easily host up to 12 guests and works well with this number for value for money for those sharing. We can also go up to 15 guests one trundle in the family room and One large double L-Shaped sofabed in 3rd lounge. We can check if the house will stretch comfortably to suit your specific needs. The house layout and downstairs space works particularly well for 2-3 sets/generations of families with children and adults. We do have groups of mature single adults too who have had a wonderful time, but it is in a residential area so meeting for parties would not work.
At Swallows Rest guests enjoy the feeling of being outside while inside! Enjoy the relaxing countryside views through the floor to ceiling windows looking onto beautiful countryside across the south facing garden and patio area. Or step onto the balcony and watch the sunset. In the morning indulge in breakfast in bed push open the french doors to open the room up to outside.

We know a lot about you, but only in terms of guests ages and type of occasion. This is so firstly we can recommend you don't stay with us if it won't work for your group. But hopefully you will! Then it's just a question of making sure you have the right number of beds, cots and can offer a space as everything is set up so you wont be disturbed by us once you have arrived. One of us will come over once or twice. Our typical guests are sets of families meeting together in a large peaceful and relaxing space.

The owner has successfully run a holiday cottage in the neighbouring village for several years. Swallows Rest has just become available and while very different, has been brought up to the same high standard as the highly rated (5 star trip advisor) Cherry Tree Holiday Cottage.
