“Lovely stay”
Reviewed April 9, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Stayed at the Swallows Rest cottage for 4 nights with my partner. These cottages are so lovely, all amenities provided, lovely decorated & lay out, beautiful views & added bonus of the donkeys right outside the patio.
The owners are so friendly and welcoming, nothing is too much trouble.
Fabulous location, Whitby, Robin Hoods' Bay, Scarborough all on the doorstep and within easy reach.
We would recommend these cottages to anyone considering staying, and will definitely be back again in the future.

“Lovely cottages!”
Reviewed February 18, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We stayed in the forget me not cottage. Very nice. Beautiful and we'll equipped inside. Underfloor heating to keep it nice and warm. 2 good sized bedrooms. Nice kitchen with lots of space for cooking. Spotlessly clean.

There is also a games room across the yard with pool, table football, darts and other games.

The location is great. They is a nice pub with good food and a petrol station 5 mins away. A short drive to Whitby. Robin hoods bay is close too.

We had a really great time. Dogs welcome too. We would definitely go back.

“Amazing on all fronts!”
Reviewed February 16, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

It's always a risk to re-visit somewhere you have loved staying. This is our third stay in Swallow's rest and has been as perfect as ever. Even though the cottages are more popular than ever they are still at the highest of spec, and as fresh as they were when we first visited. We made more use of the games room this year and throughly enjoyed the table football. Our youngest enjoyed the real eggs laid by the twins and Poppy. This year we walked further and managed the Cleveland Way to Whitby, which was muddy but a fantastic walk. We had the warmest of welcomes again from Graham and Lisa. We would highly recommend these cottages to families and couples, with or without dogs. We'll be back again soon!

It really is a pleasure having you all to stay and great to see the girls growing up. The hens are happy to hear that their 'real eggs' (dirt, straw and all) were appreciated - we are still awaiting the arrival of chocolate cream eggs.....
Thank you for coming to stay with us again and we are thrilled to hear that your third visit has lived up to expectations and you'll be back again. Bailey and Teodora look forward to your visits as much as we do and of course Bracken and Willow the donkeys, always enjoy the treats that you bring them.

“Cosy well equipped cottage full of character”
Reviewed January 19, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

My friends and I stayed at the Swallows Rest cottage for an extended weekend. We loved everything about the cottage and location. Unfortunately we didn't have time to try the games room but it looked great too. Would definitely recommend and return again.

Thrilled to hear that you had a great time staying in Forget-me-not and for your lovely comments about our accommodation.
There is an iron and ironing board for guests use - it is located in our Utility area within the Games Room - we obviously omitted to point it out to you, so apologies for the oversight. Hope to have you all to stay again in the future.
