Swallowtail Hill is THE place to Slowdown for a while. Here’s how we do it!

Your stay here will be quite unlike any other. We can say that with confidence because we’re not the new kids on the block anymore. We’ve been welcoming guests for 13 years! When we first began, glamping was a new concept – all about enjoying some time away from the busy-ness of life in a simple way. It had strong roots in sustainability – offering places to stay that had a small footprint on the planet and were focused on an outdoor lifestyle. Fast forward to 2023 and the glamping industry is now HUGE, there’s something for everyone and while choice is no bad thing, we want to make sure we’re staying true to our values and to those guests who we know share our values too.

We are never going to be about superfast wifi, woodland cinema screens, outdoor cocktail bars and free Netflix  – those things can be found in plenty of other places that we’re sure are fantastic but they aren’t what we hold dear. You know that what makes Swallowtail Hill special is our landscape, the quiet, the privacy, the exceptionally well-equipped, well maintained and super clean accommodation, the friendly welcome and the chance to slowdown and reconnect with yourself, with each other and with nature.

Just some of the ingredients for a relaxing stay

A place to relax
Landscape to explore
Close to nature
A simpler life – no tv or wifi

We’ve got it covered!

Once your stay with us is fully booked we’ll send you a QR code to scan to your phone which will give you access to our digital guide. This guide will answer all of your questions and tell you everything you need to know! It has a full kit list you’ll know what we provide, it has menus so you can pre order food and it even has ‘how to’ videos for those visitors who might not be confident with lighting fires. It also has a comprehensive guide to all the places to visit, things to do and see in the surrounding area with links and maps. 

And if you want to explore the area you’ll find plenty of this…

Ancient towns and villages
Adventure sports

Sustainability is at the heart of our business

Everything we do is focused on reducing our footprint on the planet. That means everything we use, provide and stock has to tick our sustainability criteria. Your accommodation has been built sustainably. Everything we provide from the tea and coffee, to the fixtures and fittings, to the cleaning and laundry products we use, and the food and drink we offer – is as ethical and planet friendly as possible.
