The first couple of days fishing were affected by the snow melt. Saw otters. Beautiful setting, very comfy holiday home, so well equipped, even sharp knives! Ian and Jo have thought of everything.

L and L

First few days fishing were great, then the snow and wind set in -18 degrees, the coldest we have ever fished in and caught nothing! Fabulous chalet, a home from home.

R and S

Had a lovely week in this lovely well equipped cottage. Great views, great wildlife. Kids loved the ducks, geese and swans. Property was warm, cosy and well equipped with everything thought of. Extremely clean and tidy and welcome basket was a lovely touch. We were so lucky to find this little treasure only booking a day before coming. Thank you for the use of your property, we will return again in the summer.

Had a lovely week, lovely comfortable cottage, hard to find any faults. Thought of everything, from thread to the needle. Good illustrations for appliances. Fishing difficult due to salt tide, but overall a very enjoyable week. We will be back. 5 *

Our second visit to this wonderful holiday home. Had a fabulous 2 weeks (Don’t want to go home). Weather has been very good. It’s so peaceful just watching wildlife (and feeding it as well). Fishing was good, best fish a bream 2llbs. Will recommend to anyone (have done also to while we have been here to passers by). Welcome basket was a lovely surprise. I cannot praise this wonderful chalet enough, everything you need is here.

A and T

We cannot thank you enough for letting us stay in your very comfortable and clean cottage. The welcome basket was a lovely surprise and much appreciated. The cottage is warm, well thought out, you just have to enjoy and relax while spending your time here. The fishing is superb, it was great to have a place to store equipment and bait (most days bream, roach, perch and 1 pike). Hope we will be able to return next year.

Hired boat from Buccaneer again - lovely to be alone with nature! Thanks Ian and Jo - hopefully we will return again next year.

J and R

A blissful week away from work although the WiFi meant I was never that far away! But the welcome pack! It was very welcome!! And so generous. And the accommodation so well equipped too. Mixed weather - not into fishing so visiting local towns and villages. If you are into Cash in the Attic go to Acle on Thursday mornings and Horners Auction behind the big Budgens - fascinating. Today (Friday) an absolute scorcher and have turned bright red just from an afternoon outside!


Very clean and well equipped chalet. The welcome pack was a lovely touch (especially the wine) Great time fishing! Amazing views, close to train so didn’t need to use the car! Overall a fantastic time had by all! See you again soon!! 5 star rating *****

The stay has been lovely, the dogs have even enjoyed the stay, first time away for them. I don’t think you could have thought of anything more to make the perfect stay. A great big thank you, would definitely stay at Swallowdale again. August 2015
