Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice place but no water!! We booked the house for a group of us to attend a wedding nearby. The house and the location was lovely. But the day we arrived we discovered the water to the main house was cut off because the pump had broken. We called the owner who said there was nothing he could do. So for the next 2 days we shared one small bathroom for 14 of us. It was so difficult to all get ready for the wedding. It really affected our enjoyment of the place. After our stay there was no apology, no reply to our email!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic getaway! What a wonderful getaway so close to home! The house was beautiful with more than enough space to fit our whole group comfortably. Loved the privacy and enjoyed having outdoor dinners with the wood fired pizza oven. Highly recommended and would definitely stay again. Thanks Brian and Faye!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Weekend Escape A wonderful spacious house that comfortably accommodated 3 young families. We thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet, bush walks, relaxing in front of the huge open fire, and making pizzas in the outdoor pizza oven (this is a must). A great weekend escape without having to travel far from the city. It was a shame the spa did not work that would have been a topper to a wonderful weekend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Group Stays. We had a lovely time at swallows nest and would recommend for big family/friend groups. Kids loved staying in the separate stables accommodation. Fantastic deck and BBQ area. Shame spa wasn't working as it would've been fantastic to have a spa under the stars. Great functional well equipped kitchen and large living room with beautiful fireplace. Bedrooms were a little tired but fine and there could've been a bit more firewood left for us to use but not really an issue. Will be back for sure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Family Fun We loved this rustic home with plenty of room for the two families to run around. Lots of outside entertaining and breakfast in the sunshine on the deck. Nice warm fire to side around at night. It was a little country very close to home.
