The picturesque village of Bucknell has a train station served by The Heart of Wales Railway and to the south are the traditional cider orchards and black and white villages of North Herefordshire.

Swallow Cottage is a magnificent barn conversion on the outskirts of Bucknell village. This superb semi-detached stone built property is one of two 18th century Grade II listed barn conversions, set in an attractive courtyard in a picturesque rural location just two miles from the village. Swallow Cottage features an array of original features including oak beams and trusses, wall timbers and some exposed stone walls. Swallow Cottage provides high-quality accommodation, including en-suite facilities, and a warm and welcoming atmosphere. It’s a stunning holiday retreat within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is the perfect base for walking, cycling, bird watching and exploring the fantastic countryside of Shropshire and Mid Wales.


A very restful property with welcoming owners who have obviously spent many years restoring the barn to an excellent standard.
Mr Chambers

First class Cottage in all respects. Friendly and welcoming owners.
Mrs Cleaver

Beautiful surroundings, lovely cottage. Very helpful and friendly owners.
Mrs O'byrne

The cottage was really peaceful and quiet. The surrounding countryside was really pretty and the walking potential was great. The little play area was a great idea and the children in our party really loved it. Our hosts were friendly and on hand if required but have also perfected the art of giving you plenty of freedom and space to enjoy your break. We really enjoyed our time here.
Mr Mcalpine

It was a beautiful place to stay; very peaceful and well equipped. The garden was particularly suited to young children.
Mrs Garnham
