I stayed at Swallow Cottage for two nights with a group of five friends and we all fell in love with the place. It was wonderful. Tara was incredibly generous and helpful and I would really recommend staying here.

Swallow cottage is a beautiful place surrounded by stunning countryside. We used the cottage whilst attending my brother's wedding nearby and it was ideally located making the whole weekend perfect in every sense. Tanya was a great host who was always quick to respond to any communication, especially when we were delayed for check in due to traffic. Thank you Tanya.

My friends and I were looking for somewhere outside of London for R&R and quality time. Tanya's place is absolutely perfect for this. The cottage is extremely spacious, so clean and perfectly comfortable. We didn't cook, as we took up one of Tanya's pub recommendations (a super place that is at max 10 min walk down the road) but I was impressed with how well kitted out the kitchen was. Tanya provided us with a lovely breakfast, more than enough to feed the four of us. The cottage is in a great location for all sorts of local exploring and there are plenty of options if you are a foodie. There is an abundance of garden space and the cottage is surrounded by rolling fields so the view is really beautiful. Tanya is a wonderful woman! We enjoyed our chats with her and wished we had longer to be in this wonderful haven. She is extremely communicative, helpful and just such an incredibly warm person - a breath of fresh air. We are planning our next trip to Swallowcliffe Cottage to take part in the activities Tanya runs in the retreat centre and will be booking a longer stay.

A really lovely cottage in a beautiful quiet place and a very loving host. We felt immediately at home and the kids loved it too.

This was the best place we stayed during our trip to England. The cottage is in an idyllic setting, truly is spacious, and is beautifully and peacefully decorated. Everything was clean and comfortable. Tanya is the perfect host--even was waiting to help us out when our car got flat tires! Walking through the lanes to the village pub was so much fun, we did it each night. The cottage is peacefully out of town, but very conveniently located for getting into Salisbury.

Hello from a happy buddhist, though not a very austere one. My work includes running a retreat centre with a focus on meditation. Other interests include art, sharing good food with friends and keeping an international perspective. when I travel, it is often to a retreat. I'm calm, interested and easy to be with.
