Holidays With Friends & Loved Ones

We love making your stay as special as possible

Landmark birthday coming up? Anniversary or proposal to plan?
Time away with friends?

We’re never short of inspiration for those wanting to make their stays a little bit extra special.

Whether it’s a birthday and you’d like a cake and some decorations, an anniversary and you need some flowers and sparkling wine, or you want a picnic in a special setting we’ve got you covered.

If you want to gather your nearest and dearest and book all six of our special places to stay for a relaxed weekend then we can do that too.

The Hill Top Tent

During the summer months we have a secret location perfect for celebrations or romantic moments – The Hill Top Tent. She’s available to hire as an extra treat during your stay.

You might like to spend a few hours there for a picnic lunch or afternoon tea, or visit for sundowner drinks, it’s also a perfect place for a stargazing session, or to play board games and listen to music or simply to enjoy the view.

The Hill Top Tent is hidden away in its own private paddock – accessed only by the secret tree ‘tunnel’ we call Lovers’ Lane.

Once you’re there the views across our farm are stunning. George and Buttons the donkeys graze in the field next door and love to wander over and say hello.

The Hill Top Tent has comfortable seating outside, lanterns and a fire saucer for chilly evenings. Inside it has giant bean bags for relaxing in and fairy lights to add to the atmosphere.

We very often have enquiries from small family groups who want to book all six of our special places to stay to celebrate a landmark birthday or anniversary.

Swallowtail Hill lends itself perfectly to those who want to spend time with extended family or a few friends for a relaxed and peaceful stay.

The farm doesn’t host big or loud celebrations, but if you’re looking for something completely laid back and mostly off grid then we might absolutely fit the bill.

The paddock where the twin cabins, Wood and Penfold, sit is at the heart of the farm and is the perfect place for everyone to gather around the campfire for a BBQ or to just hang out in the sunshine. If you’re just two families wanting to holiday together then this is location for you too.

Our cabins and cottages each have a different character and different facilities so you can decide who stays where. Some might prefer the Longview with its ensuite and the families with young kids might be happiest in the off-grid cabins with space to run around. We can help you create the perfect weekend.

I had a trip planned to stay in the roundhouse. After booking the trip I decided that I wanted to ask my partner to marry me while I was away. I asked them to fill the space with wild flowers and to have champagne on ice for our arrival. Sarah’s response was ‘leave it with me’. There was no hesitation to accommodate exactly what I’d asked. Her communication was 10/10! Sarah and her team went above and beyond. They decorated the round house in such a way that the whole experience was truly magical and I couldn’t have asked for it to look better. THANKYOU Swallowtail Hill!

Gourmet Treats & Special Menus

Chloe is our wonderful chef and with some notice we can provide the little extras you might want to make your stay special. Maybe you’d like some cupcakes for a celebration, or a birthday cake, she has the perfect menu to choose from.

You might prefer a picnic or afternoon tea at your accommodation – or at the Hill Top Tent. Or maybe a gourmet cheese board and a good bottle of red sounds more your style.

Our BBQ and breakfast boxes can be big enough to cater for a group as can our campfire suppers.

The Roundhouse is just for a couple. The Longview can accommodate a couple and two children under ten. Woodcutter’s Cottage and Meadow Keeper’s Cottage can accommodation two adults and two children. Wood and Penfold Cabin can accommodate four people.

Once your stay is finalised we’ll send you our digital guide to download to your phone. It contains our menus and lists of extras available so you can make your selections and email us to book.

I’m afraid not, we don’t have enough parking or the access to permit large scale celebrations.

Provided you book the site as a whole we will accept hen bookings of no more than twenty people (assuming some don’t mind bed sharing). But please note we have a noise curfew of 11pm.
