Lovely Lavender

Created in 2005 the Lavender and Sunflower Meadow is a popular attraction  for customers during the summer months, and our show of lavender seems to get better with each passing year.  The  magnificent two-acre plot situated at the rear of the pub releases a gentle  soothing aroma in the breeze, and attracts a wealth of wildlife including a  triumphant local bee population.

Summer weddings

It is an ideal setting for parties and BBQs and has also proven to be a very popular location for summer weddings. The Lavender Meadow provides the ultimate in romantic scenery and is a superb photographic opportunity. To our knowledge, it’s the only one of its kind within the grounds of a pub, so it’s no wonder that wedding bookings have been taken from as far away as Australia and New Zealand.

It’s also a great place to take in the view over a refreshing drink and enjoy the wonderful scenery (our Swettenham sunsets are truly spectacular!).

  • “We would just like to thank you and the staff at the Swettenham Arms for the really splendid 80th birthday celebration we had on Sunday afternoon, 7th February. The banqueting room looked magnificent and the meal was out of this world – our guests all remarked on the quality. Glyn organised the proceedings very well so everything ran very smoothly. Compliments to the chef and the kitchen staff and the ladies waiting on table were just lovely. Thank you Fran for suggesting Roy Peters he was just great with the music during the meal and throughout the afternoon. It was a really memorable day for us and thank you all very much for making it so. We will have to visit you in the summer when the sunflowers and lavenders are out!”
