“Stunning house, great location”
Reviewed April 13, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Swallows Nest is a beautifully presented cottage with great views. We got really lucky with the weather and enjoyed a sunny week of long walks and visiting friends. The cottage was a perfect base for exploring the countryside nearby. Sally was really helpful and made us feel very welcome. She has done an amazing job with the house - it is a beautiful barn conversion, done to a very high spec and tastefully decorated throughout. We appreciated all the extra thoughtful touches and would highly recommend a stay here.

“Excellent and peaceful”
Reviewed February 20, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Our family stay was relaxing and peaceful. The accomodation, the welcome and the area was all 5 star. The rooms are clean and modern with all the facilities that you require, Sally is welcoming and helpful and the area is idyllic for a relaxing break with hillside walks on the doorstep.

“A beautiful place with everything you need”
Reviewed February 17, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

The Swallows Nest is a beautiful cottage in the lovely Slaithwaite. The place has been done to a high standard with attention to detail but still feels lovely and homely.
I booked the cottage for my 30th birthday and travelled with my partner and friends, we all thought the place was lovely as did friends and family that popped up to the cottage. We felt looked after and had everything we needed and even the fire had been lit for us for our arrival, which made it feel so very cosy.
With a 10-15 minute walk down into Slaithwaite itself, with access to trains to the likes of Huddersfield, Leeds, York or Manchester it really is a lovely place to stop and travel from. The walk back up to the cottage is all up hill but manageable and the views are worth it.
I will definitely be booked again when we next visit from the Netherlands.

“THE BEST WEEKEND AWAY!”
Reviewed January 28, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

At arrival we were greeted by Kath who was extremely friendly and just left us to see the property in our own space and time which we preferred; we were made feel comfortable straight away. The car park was spacious and we parked our cars on the property for secure parking. The cottage was spotless....smelt amazing and thoroughly clean! We were not disturbed by anyone which meant I was stress free. We literally just got on with it and had a fantastic weekend! I am already booking another weekend soon! Sally was very friendly and we met her at check-out. I left the property clean as a show of my respect to the home and left it just as clean as it was when we walked in. I highly recommend this place! Cannot wait to go back!

“Perfect - highly recommended”
Reviewed January 6, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We stayed here for three days over New Year and Swallows Nest was the perfect way to spend our break.

The cottage is immaculate and is finished to an exceptionally high standard. The combination of character features like the wooden beams and the modern furnishings works really well. Every need seemed to be catered for which made our stay even more enjoyable. Many hours were spent in front of the log burner and the bed in the master bedroom is very comfortable!

There was a nice welcome pack waiting for us or arrival which included milk, bread, orange juice, butter, marmalade and chocolates which was a lovely touch.

The owner, Sally, was a pleasure to deal with and we would definitely visit this cottage again.

I would highly recommend a stay here!
