The Living Space:
Step through the traditional front door and you instantly have a sense of country living. To the left of the hallway is the open-plan dining room with a country-cottage table for six people and views to the cottage’s pretty front garden.

Stepping back through the hallway you’ll find a cosy living room to the right, boasting a coal-effect fire, sink-in sofas with bursts of colour and bright dual aspect windows, with views to the front and back gardens.

Hidden away in the somewhat secret village of Laverton just outside of Broadway, Swallows Rest Cottage is perfectly placed for those seeking the peace and tranquillity of a country escape, with the benefit of having the amenities of Broadway a short drive away. The cottage is accessed from the front with parking to the rear. Swallows Rest Cottage sits prettily alongside a row of fellow cottages on a very quiet country lane. The real gem of the cottage is its private garden, perfect for families and accessible either through the cottage or from the gate at the rear. This spacious outside area affords the cottage plenty of al-fresco dining opportunities thanks to a dedicated outdoor-dining set and American Smoker BBQ. The perfect space to unwind in after a day exploring the Cotswolds, the garden is beautifully maintained with plenty of greenery to give it a real English country garden feel.

This place is beautiful!!! Pictures doesn’t do the justices! Everything is so picturesque. And the place is so clean, not even dust anywhere.
We had an excellent stay at Swallows Rest. We were nervous becuse it was our first trip out of lockdown, but the place was spotless and felt very safe and cleaned throughout. Lovely garden where you can enjoy a nice meal/drink in the sun, with a view of the sheep in the adjacent field. The area is wonderful and the location - very close to the the pictoresque Brodway - is perfect. The hosts were very accomodating and super efficient. We would definitely consider staying here again.
If you want the perfect cosy cottage for the family - this is for you. Lay back in one of the gorgeous baths with a Tolkien and look up at the star from the skylight or cosy up with a game in the reading room looking onto the garden and the hills beyond. Hosts were brilliant and so helpful in offering advice.
"Really lovely place and exactly as pictured. Perfectly located within 5 min walk to abbey and high street yet peacefully tucked away and very quiet. Really well equipped with everything we needed to cook some meals at home. Would highly recommend.
A great cottage for a family, perfect location to explore Cotswolds or just relax and do nothing at all. Hosts were attentive, would definitely recommend
We had a lovely week here. Great communication from hosts. The setting and views were beautiful. The cottage was spacious and very clean. Very modern bathrooms however had rustic cottage charm with little homely touches. Very near to broadway which had great restaurants and cafes. Lovely well kept garden with a barbecue to be used however unfortunately we couldn’t use because of the weather for us. 2 good size double bedrooms and 2 well sized single bedrooms. Tvs in front room including every bedroom which was an added bonus. Definitely a super host
We stayed at Swallows Rest for a family birthday and it was ideal. The house was clean and comfortable for 6, with a great kitchen, garden and bbq! Laverton is a quiet village, but is close to all the places we like to visit in the area, and I would happily stay again. The hosts were also friendly and responded quickly to our queries - thank you!
“Lovely stay at a really nice cottage. Lovely village with plenty of walks nearby. Back garden is also nice and can watch the sunset. Would highly recommend.”
The town of Broadway with its honey-coloured cottages is just a 2-minute drive from the cottage. It offers a range of different activities for children and adults. Start the day with some excitement at Broadway Playpark, or find a real bird’s-eye view of the Cotswolds from the top of Broadway Tower. There’s a great choice of restaurants, pubs and galleries to be found in this vibrant town. There are also some fabulous walking routes right from the front door of Swallows Rest, and if you want to try something new with the family, give cycling, fishing and horse riding a go, all very near the cottage.
The nearest convenience stores are in Broadway, with Warner’s Budgens and Nisa stocked full of the essentials you’ll need for a well-catered break. The nearest major supermarkets can be found in Evesham (20-minute drive), where an M&S Simply Food, Tesco Superstore, LIDL, ALDI, Morrisons and Co-Operative Food offer you plenty of choice when it comes to stocking up. If you fancy taking the hassle out of your stay completely, we recommend planning ahead with a grocery delivery; Ocado, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Morrisons all deliver to the cottage.
