Vacation Cottage Rental Description:
Swallow's Nest is located on a family farm with organic orchards, fields and animals. You'll be able to visit a working farm, but there'll be no chores to complete. You're on vacation!
Settled at end of quiet lane Swallow's Nest is a 5-minute walk from the main farmhouse. Two bathrooms, sauna, three bedrooms (king, queen, dorm). Swallows' Nest can privately accommodate 2 couples. with a third well-appointed "dorm" area for the "kids". This is an ideal location for a vacation with family and friends.
There's a lot to enjoy without leaving the property. You can walk to nearby attractions, or take short daytrips to dozens of destinations within a 30-kilometre radius.
We also welcome friendly, well mannered four-legged members of the family. Choosing Swallow's Nest for your vacation means there's no need for any separation anxiety for either kids or pets.
A farm stay is a special vacation for families with young children. We have three children of our own who can help your kids make a strong and lasting connection between food, farms and fun. If they like, visiting children will be able to collect eggs, visit the pigs or piglets, and take walks through the orchard and trails with Frank, Lily or Izaak. We can also arrange a trip to harvest corn or another crop. Then your family can enjoy this "just picked" food for lunch or supper. Now, that's fresh and knowing where food comes from.
Adults too may discover a farm activity to enjoy. There's nothing like the taste of an egg when you've brought it straight from the hen to the pot or a salad for supper when you've chosen your own greens!
There are two large ponds on the property. This and the organic nature of the surrounding environment makes a visit to Swallow's Nest an excellent bird and nature watching opportunity.
