Sumptuous hotel accommodation and restaurant

Following a major refurbishment in 2012, Swallows Eaves has seven beautifully decorated ensuite guest bedrooms, rated into three categories (click here for accommodation details). 

We also have our own restaurant - Reeds - which offers a first class dining experience, serving top quality, freshly cooked dishes at reasonable prices, using only the best locally sourced ingredients (click here for restaurant details, including opening times and menus). 

Easy access for our guests 

Our spacious ground floor Classic Twin guest room offers easy access accommodation for those who are disabled or have difficulty with stairs. Disabled parking bays are situated beside the hotel's front door (which has a ramp) and all of the ground floor is level with easy access to the restaurant and cloakroom.  

We are easy to find by road (located on the A3052 Sidmouth/Lyme Regis road) and have plenty of private (off-road) car parking spaces. We are only 4 miles from Axminster railway station (London Waterloo to Exeter line). In addition, we have a specially built cabin for our Cycling and Walking guests, where equipment and bikes can be washed and stored securely.

Wireless broadband internet access is available throughout the hotel free of charge. The hotel welcomes adults and young people from 13 years old upwards.  There are no facilities for pets.
