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.


In the middle of nowhere, and all the better for it.
We stayed here at the end of August 2020, we wanted somewhere where we could switch off and get away from it all. And this lovely barn conversion did exactly that. It was immaculately presented, impeccably clean, warm and cozy and perfect for our family. The field was brilliant for bunny and squirrel spotting and our youngest enjoyed the swings. Sometimes it's the simple things that bring the most enjoyment. Highly recommended.

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

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
