Family friendly cottage in an idyllic setting.
Beautiful cottage set in lovely countryside. Use of indoor swimming pool and family room. Also outdoor play area. Bar-B-Q in garden for outdoor dining. Very clean and tastefully decorated. Log burner for the colder months. Close to the village of Ipplepen with a very nice Garden centre and dining pub. Would certainly book again.

A very quiet location near Totnes. The cottage is very well equipped. with the added bonus of a wonderful indoor swimming pool The cottage is family and dog friendly, very clean and very well maintained. Long country walks with a dog or drive a few miles to all those lovely Devon beaches. A great relaxing holiday. Already booked again for next year.

Superb
We would highly recommend this cottage. It was in a lovely quiet setting with wonderful views of the countryside. The cottage itself is superb. Jacquie has provided everything you could possibly want for families or just adults and all of a high quality. We wish we could have stayed longer.

A great little cottage
It may seem a small cottage but, like a Tardis, there is plenty of space on the inside as it's a very efficient design. It's comfortable and very well equipped and it's conveniently located: not too far off the main road so there's easy access to major towns and small villages. There are great facilities, such as an indoor pool, a games room and a great outdoor play area for kids. Will stay here again when we're next in the region.

Lovely spotless cottage with swimming pool on the doorstep.
This lovely, characterful period cottage is in a beautiful setting on a converted farm. Perfect for children, with a heated indoor pool across the courtyard and also a well-equipped games room and outdoor play area for little ones. Plenty of parking, and recycling facilities in the car park. Within a short drive of places like River Dart Country Park, Kents Cavern, Crealey's theme park, lots of clean beaches, and also Newton Abbot or Totnes for shopping/takeaways etc. We have been 3 times and this won't be the last!

Superb year round cottage in a rural setting, with many tourist attractions within reach.
A spotless cottage on a rural complex that has good facilities for adults and children alike. Can be used year round as heating is great. Superb indoor pool and games room available for your use. All your needs are catered for in the cottage the gold star award is well deserved. Once you stay you will want to reaturn and will definitely recommend it to others.

Lovely small cottage for all the family and the dog!
This cottage is very nicely presented and well equipped. The living area is small but exactly as described and cosy with just enough room for the dog's bed. The bedrooms are a good size and both are ensuite. The ground floor bedroom was ideal for my mum of advance years and the first floor bedroom nice too, if you can manage a spiral staircase. The big bonus was the swimming pool which we used very morning. The information from the owner was very comprehensive especially the directions which were essential and the information in the cottage well organised. A boat trip to Dartmouth was recommended and we agree; it made for a lovely day out. We thought about taking the train and bus option as well but we thought that would be a bit rushed. The cottage location is a bit isolated so you have to drive some narrow lanes before you can start to get anywhere but all the lovely places to visit are within a reasonable distance by car.

Swift Cottage
This was our second break at Swift Cottage. The facilities are very good and there is an excellent swimming pool. The cottage is dog friendly and there are plenty of places to visit in the area. The Dartington Estate just outside of Totnes has two excellent cafés that served good quality food at reasonable prices Jacquie the cottage owner is easy to contact and ensures that everything is ready for you when you arrive at the cottage. Ipplepen village is about a mile from the cottage if you need to top up on groceries. In all we had another relaxing break at Swift.
