Bedrooms: 8
Swallows Court is a unique French-style house from the Post-Restoration Period, believed to have been built during Charles II's reign. However, it is possible that the house's construction was done using stone pieces from the 13th-century Mansion of the Valences in Moreton Valence. Swallows Court features many historic elements, including Cotswold stone floors, exposed stone walls, oak beamed walls and ceilings, Tudor and Inglenook fireplaces, Georgian display recesses, a Jacobean staircase, a wine cellar, and a Georgian wig cupboard. The main house has six large bedrooms with two en-suites and a refitted family bathroom with a big bubble bath. The house's stone walls and full gas central heating system, with a large wood burner in the living room, keep the spacious rooms cool in summer and warm in winter. The property also has two one-bedroom cottages with exposed beams and en-suite shower rooms. Property Ref STR230082 - Council Tax Band G
