“Great pet friendly accommodation in stunning location!”

We and our 2 dogs thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Swallows Nest. The accommodation is lovely, clean and well equipped, including Wi-fi, TV and DVD player. The location is absolutely stunning and we enjoyed sitting on the patio looking out over the farms, animals and Yorkshire hills. The friendly free range fowl fascinated the dogs, but were not a problem as the small front garden is enclosed by a low stone wall and the dogs could meander around this safely. We were in easy reach of dog friendly beaches - we enjoyed Filey and further afield Fraisthorpe - while being in the wonderful countryside. Best of both worlds! Our hosts were friendly, but not intrusive and left us lovely fruit and fresh farm eggs. We would highly recommend Swallows Nest.

“Lovely Stay 😊”
Reviewed April 25, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

My parents booked this property for my dad's 60th! We joined them for 4 of the 7 nights. My mum said they had fresh fruit and eggs on arrival which they loved! The property was clean and tidy and very cosy. We enjoyed watching the farm life from the patio doors on an evening time! My two year old loved all the animals on site and the tractors! It is easy location to get to places. We would definitely stay again!

“Very nice”
Reviewed September 1, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We spent 3 days around the Scarborough-Whitby area and booked Swallows Nest to be our base. The cottage is very nice, clean and well-equiped with good quality wi-fi. It's situated inside a farm with a few other cottages and the scenery is peaceful in the morning. The owners are helpful (detailed direction on how to get there if you don't hav Google maps) and non-intrusive. There is a small play area with a trampoline, climbing structures and a slides. Restaurants, supermarkets and towns are all within driving distances (<20 mins). We certainly enjoyed our stay.

What a beautiful cottage with views to die for..... Spotlessly clean with a real home from home feeling about the place. The Owners were extremely friendly and have equipped the cottage with everything you need. This was our first but will definitely not be our last visit. The location was so tranquil and relaxing.
