“Lovely cosy cottage”
Reviewed December 10, 2017 for a stay in December 2017

Stayed whilst visiting family in scarborough, great location - rural but not far from the main road into town.

Cottage itself is very cosy and traditional, everything you need for a short stay and was very warm on our arrival which was much appreciated.

We arrived in the dark and woke up the lovely views across the dale. Would definitely stay here again.

“Good quality cottage”
Reviewed November 7, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

Chose this cottage due to pet and accessibility needs. Cottage was packed to the gills with useful stuff: extra crockery, extra bedding, VHS and dvds, radio player, hair dryer, everything we needed and more. Mostly on one level which was fantastic for us, second bedroom does have 3 steps down but they are wide and have a rail for support. The eggs and fruit left for us was appreciated. Good quiet location but close to places we wanted to go so very happy with that. Additional towels request was sorted promptly. Only constructive comment is the outside table and chairs were peeling but we didn't use them so not an issue. Would love to return there next year as was cracking value for money in my opinion.

“You have to stay here, the most 'perfect cottage ever'!”

Absolutely fantastic, by far the cosiest, cleanest cottage I have ever stayed in. The pictures do not do it justice. Every need is catered for, beds are so comfy, very private. Amazing views, superb base for North Yorkshire moors, Whitby 15 miles & Scarborough within minutes. Just stand outside in your private garden listen to the owls at night, sheep bleeting & the occasional cow & escape from everything! This cottage was truly exceptional & I am fussy! When you look at the visitors log though you know why, some families have been 5 times & returning this year again! X

We had a lovely stay at Swallows Nest; well equipped and cozy - the cottage was wonderful and the views spectacular. The location was great and the hosts, Phil and Angie were also very friendly, making it a perfect short break. Would love to return xx
