We had a great weekend at Swallow’s nest. The cottage is exceptionally well appointed and immaculately clean. There was fresh bread, milk, logs, etc waiting for us on our arrival. There are good walks from the doorstep with plenty of pubs/restaurants, etc in the vicinity. We’ll definitely be looking to book again!

Management response:

So glad you enjoyed your stay with us at Swallows Nest. Hope to welcome you again!

Another brilliant weekend staying at Swallows Nest, in spite of the snow!!! This is a beautiful cottage in a stunning location - we cannot praise it enough, we simply love coming here! Spacious, stylish, comfortable accommodation, a friendly and helpful owner (Sally is lovely!), lots of walks nearby, great places to visit and so many nice tearooms, cafes, pubs, etc...

Management response:

Thank you for your lovely comments. We'd love to welcome you again soon!

We were planning to have a short stay in Lisbon and then Monarch went bust. Instead we booked 3 nights at Swallows Nest. What a gem! The house is beautiful and very cosy. It's in a great location - high up on the hill with good views over the valley. West Yorkshire is god's own country (as well as Kerala!)....

Thank you for your lovely review, hope to welcome you in the future.
