About Tom Swift
My wife and I purchased Knollands Farm in 2012. We have one daughter, Alannah (aged 7). This small farm (50 acres) is our family home and we are on hand to help assist our holiday cottage guests with recommendations for inns/restaurants/days out if they desire any guidance. The cottage has been enjoyed by guests for around 10 years. It was advertised through Hoseasons brochure for many years, however, we decided in 2012 that we could offer our clients better value for money by using owners direct.

Why Tom Swift chose Shipston-on-Stour
The property is excellently located being close (1 mile) to the lovely market town of Shipston on Stour (which has a super range of independent shops, inns and restaurants). The cottage is set in a private position with stunning countryside views. The Cotswold village of Chipping Camden is also close by and Shakespeare's Stratford only 10 miles away.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage was converted from a agricultural barn in 1995 using reclaimed brick and timber beams. It is well insulated with oil fired central heating so provides a lovely cosy environment to return home to after a day exploring the Cotswolds. The cottage is the only accommodation on the farm other than the farm house so provides guests with a quiet and private space.

Lovely, spacious cottage in peaceful, perfect location
The cottage is an ideal base to explore Central England. Stratford Upon Avon is only 10 miles away, Oxford is reachable in less than one hour and Banbury station which took us to London on the frequent train service is a half an hour drive. Also the Cotswolds are literally just down the road.
The cottage is a perfect base, so after a hard day touring and battling the crowds you can enjoy complete peace and quiet in the beautiful Warwickshire countryside.
The cottage is spacious, well equipped and well maintained.
We really enjoyed our five nights stay and would highly recommend it to anyone.
Quiet and peaceful.
We had everything we needed and close to all amenities.
Warm, cosy, well equipped cottage in peaceful location.
This property has a comfortable atmosphere and a friendly relaxed owner, which both made our stay just perfect. Very quiet location but convenient for the surrounding area and with a fantastic French Bakery and also a local Butchers shop a few miles away in Upper Brailes.
More spacious than expected

Fabulous stay at a delightful cottage
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Pool Meadow cottage. The cottage is perfect - so spacious, spotlessly clean and well supplied with everything needed. Also the outdoor dining area is great with a lovely view over the English countryside. The location was so peaceful and yet just a short drive from the local town. Tom was lovely and helpful and the information provided in the cottage was brilliant too (details on local attractions, guidebooks etc). This was a wonderful stay and I highly recommend the cottage.
