Just back from a lovely weekend spent at the Cart Shed. Such a beautiful, clean and comfortable property. John and Katy are the perfect hosts, very friendly and accommodating. They left us a beautiful welcome hamper and a homemade cake for our boys birthdays which was delicious!The accommodation is extremely well equipped with everything you should need. The bedrooms are spacious with very comfortable beds and the log burner in the lounge is great for when you return from those chilly walks. We loved watching the abundance of wildlife surrounding the property especially the cheeky squirrel that visited regularly to steal the birds nuts!! Fraisthorpe beach is a short drive away which is dog friendly and just lovely. Beverley town centre is also a short drive away which is a lovely shopping town with ample eateries and bars. All in all a superb place to stay. Highly recommended.
Stayed in the Cart Shed for two nights in November for a family celebration - my Dad's 85th Birthday.
The accommodation is of very high standard. A large open plan living area (kitchen / diner / lounge) with underfloor heating and a log burner, three good sized double bedrooms (two en-suite) and a large family bathroom. The walls of the Cart Shed are hemp insulated, meaning that no matter how cold it is outside, it is very warm inside.
Our hosts, John & Katy, extended a warm welcome and made sure that everything was perfect for our stay. A welcome hamper stocked with high quality essentials was provided and a small 'treat' basket was provided for our dog Jess. Free range eggs (delicious) were also provided and were replenished on request. Katy made a lovely birthday cake for my Dad, which was very much appreciated.
Because of the season we didn't make proper use of the patio area, but it was nice being able to look out and see an array of wild birds that visited the feeders.
All in all, this is first rate family accommodation and is ideally situated for exploring all that East Yorkshire has to offer.
Thank you John & Katy for the hospitality, we hope to return.
We can’t thank John and Katy enough. The cart shed is so beautiful! All you need for your stay, wonderful facilities if you wish to stay in some nights the kitchen is beautiful and stocked up. Located near so many places to visit too. Fresh eggs and bread upon arrival and eggs available from their chickens all holiday. You won’t be disappointed if you book to stay. So family friendly too. Nothing was too much bother for them. They even unpacked our food delivery for us from Asda!!
We were looking for a Yorkshire-based cottage that sleeps six adults - with three double beds - for a friends reunion, and it proved to be a challenge, but it was certainly worth it for the result .. so glad we found The Swallows Nest.
Great location to begin with, but the cottage is superb - a beautifully restored cart shed finished to a very high standard, evidently well maintained and fitted with everything you could possibly need - the very friendly owners are close by (but not too close) if you need anything. We were lucky with the weather, able to sit on the fenced-in patio into the evening (who said it was October ?) to watch the stars, sadly not needing to light up the lovely log stove.
And the setting is gorgeous, surrounded by trees and fields in every direction yet close to main roads for Hull, Beverley, the coast and beyond. The village of Brandesburton is lovely with two stores and two excellent pubs (and take-aways) within walking distance.
Really can't recommend this find highly enough !
We returned to the Cart Shed for the third time and, once again, it didn't disappoint! Lots of options for days out all within a 45 minute drive. John and Katy are brilliant hosts including sorting our online shopping into cupboards before our arrival, providing a yummy welcome hamper on arrival and ensuring that there were some toys available for our children to play with. Our children loved to visit to the hens each day to check for eggs (their faces were priceless when they found some!). We were very lucky with the weather so were able to watch some beautiful sunsets and sunrises from the patio. This place is such an amazing find and perfect for our needs. We intend returning again next year!
John and Katy made us so welcome to their delightful Cart Shed. It is a beautifully converted barn providing very comfortable and superb space for a restful and peaceful break. Everything is provided and the conversion is of the highest quality. A food hamper with the best products, their own tasty free range eggs provided free and delicious home made scones awaited our arrival. The attention to detail eg bird feeders on terrace, binoculars, umbrellas, decent sharp knives, quality kitchen ware, interesting books, local OS maps etc etc is incomparable. We were cycling and the roads around are usually quiet and mostly fairly flat. We had a lovely break and would highly recommend this holiday cottage. Many thanks to John and Katy
