Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great family weekend. We had a wonderful weekend at Swallows Nest and just wanted to tell you that all went really well. Even though the weather was very wet the family loved every minute of the weekend. In some ways having no mobile phone reception was great as the young people stayed off their phones! We cooked the most amazing pizzas on Saturday night in the pizza oven. We took our kayak and had some fun in the river too. The house is very comfortable and you have set it up just right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous bush getaway Stunning sandstone house with wide timber deck overlooking the bush. Woke to birds calling each other, before cooking a leisurely breakfast in the well-equipped kitchen. It was just a shame it was too warm to use the fireplace this time. A very relaxing weekend away - and the stone pizza oven was again a huge hit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had a fantastic weekend Can't recommend this place highly enough. It's clean, very comfortable and really well appointed; great living area with a huge fireplace, a big kitchen and plenty of space for three families with seven children. The view from the verandah is spectacular, the pizza oven works a treat, and the kids loved sleeping in the stables. The area is stunningly beautiful; we did walks, played football in the paddock and of course visited the Settlers Arms nearby.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great spot Our group had a great stay at Swallows Nest. All amenities were excellent and we made great use of the fireplace, pizza oven, verandahs and large dining table that accommodated all of us. We used the river access to drop a line as well. Thanks very much.
