The Cart Shed at Swallow’s Nest is perfect for children of all ages.

Our Woodland Hut can sleep two small children under five.

With four children of our own, we know the sort of things you need when you go away on holiday. Just tell us the ages of your children and we can provide you with much of what’s needed to keep them happy, safe and entertained (see list of equipment below).

You will find books and games in both the Cart Shed and the Woodland Hut. There are DVDs and a telescope as well in the Cart Shed.

You are also welcome to use our themed activity boxes during your stay: The Creativity Box of Arts and Crafts; The Woodland Explorer Kit; and/or The Essential Seaside Adventurer’s Tackle.


“Our slightly older children (13 and 10) loved being allowed the independence to go into the woodland where a hammock and fire pit have been set up - all felt very safe.”

“Finding the fairy garden in the woods added to the pleasure of the holiday.”

Get to know our friendly hens, feed them some corn and collect freshly laid eggs.

Enjoy the hammock in our private woodland, toast marshmallows over the fire pit, build a den in the woods or make a tiny house for a woodland elf with whatever you can scavenge.

“There’s lots to do around the area…”
