Swallow's Rest is a great cottage for relaxing inside and out, with a large living and dining space leading directly out onto the private, south-facing garden - ideal for pets and small children. All on the ground level and with exclusive hot tub, Swallow's Rest has one double room with en-suite shower and WC, and a twin bedroom; it also has a large separate family bathroom, and separate kitchen.
Swallow's Rest is a lovely holiday barn conversion, and one of our two cottages that features its own hot tub. It's ideal for sunny days with its open aspect, as well as cool days or nights enjoying the surrounding Suffolk countryside and dark, starry night skies. The garden is enclosed with a wooden fence and so this cottage is ideal for guests with pets and small children.
The living room and dining area in Swallow's Rest is spacious and bright, with french doors opening out onto the garden and the hot tub outside, while inside you can enjoy a cosy evening in with the wood burner. We provide all the wood and kindling, and you just help yourselves to more from the wood shed when needed.
The kitchen adjoining the living area is fully-equipped, and opens out onto the pretty courtyard. There is a large family bathroom also accessible from the living room, which has a large bath, sink and wc.
The bedroom area of the cottage can be closed off through a door leading from the living room into a separate hallway. The cottage has a twin bedroom, and a double bedroom with en-suite shower room, WC and basin. There is room for a travel cot in either bedroom. We have travel cots, as well as highchairs, booster seats and other children's equipment available to borrow - please just request when you book.
We also have lots of toys and games in our large games room, as well as outdoor toys, a playground area, football net and trampoline, and multiple bikes for all ages to borrow - even a tandem !
A highlight of the stay at Bucks Farm for many of our guests is animal feeding time most mornings. We feed the chickens and hunt for eggs, as well as feed the goats, sheep and ponies, and have a cuddle with the guinea pigs. You can do as much or as little as you want !
Swallow's Rest is also a perfect base from which to explore - the market town of Halesworth is just a 5 minute drive, or why not have a day at the Suffolk coast? Popular seaside towns and beaches such as Southwold, Aldeburgh and Thorpeness are within a 20-30 minute drive. This part of Suffolk is well known for its beautiful walks and there is lots of wildlife to enjoy.
We hope you decide to choose Bucks Farm and look forward to welcoming you and your furry friends too!
