Had a relaxing break in this well equipped and comfortable cottage.. The remote position in beautiful surroundings suited us well with walks straight from the front door and beach walks in easy reach .

We had an amazing time, everything about the location and cottage is fantastic.. There is so much to see and do locally that you don’t need to venture far. My children particularly love the ponies and cows.

We loved our stay at swallow cottage.. The surroundings was beautiful & the cottage was as quaint as can be. Mainly a walking, doggy holiday for us so it was perfect. Easy access to Cinder track and Cleveland way, nice rocky beach 30 mins walk down the cinder track with a pub (Hayburn Wyke Inn) on the way. Definetly be visiting again, already missing the log fire of a evening.

All good..
Mrs Flint
August 2018
By far one of the best cottages I have stayed in for a long time.. Perfect location, very clean and cosy plus beautiful views of the Yorkshire Moors. The owners were very kind, letting our children go into the fields to see their ponies every day and they even got to groom them. Ideal position to see all the local areas and explore the beautiful Jurassic coast. I would definitely recommend this cottage and we would love to return here again very soon.
Mr Nash
August 2018
No. The cottage was exactly as advertised.. We were extremely happy with the cottage and its location. The cottage was comfortable and had everything we needed. No complaints at all.
Mr Read
May 2018
The cottage was lovely and in a lovely picturesque setting.. The Swallows was a converted barn on Hillside Farm with lovely well kept gardens and was really easy to relax. The cottage itself was cleaned to a very high standard and had everything included in the package and all you needed to bring was your food. Pippa and Graham were a fantastic host and obviously knew the whole area but advice they gave was excellent and saved both money and hours looking around for parking places. Situated close to all the Yorkshire resorts it was a first class holiday which did not require us to travel long distances daily. I would recommend the property to anyone with a small family.
Mrs Fortune
April 2018
We thoroughly enjoyed our break in Swallow Cottage.. It's a lovely,clean,comfortable cottage with lots of character features (we particularly liked the beamed double bedroom!) The location is perfect for exploring the Yorkshire coast and moors,and the woodburning stove made it really cosy in the evening's. Would definately return,and stay for longer next time.
Mrs Nixon

Had a super weekend in this cozy, immaculately clean and pretty cottage! Relaxed as soon as we headed down the driveway to it. Set in beautiful, peaceful surrounding countryside, Swallow cottage is exactly what you need to recharge the batteries!
Miss Campanaro

The cottage was beautiful nice and cosy with the log burner especially when it was snowing outside.. Yorkshire is lovely and the cottage was very close to Ravenscar to see the seals and Whitby. We recommend this cottage to anyone who wants to visit Yorkshire.

June 2017
I don't think we could have chosen a nicer cottage. This was our sons first time abroad and as soon as he saw the beauty surrounding the cottage he was off taking pictures. if your looking for quaint and charming with every amenity your could want this is your cottage. All of us fell in love with Ginny, the owners Airedale Terrier. She came to the door for breakfast every morning and just added to the magical atmosphere. Had wonderful days out to Fountains Abbey and so many beauty spots in Yorkshire. I would highly recommend this cottage, it is the quintessential English dream cottage that most Americans dream of. Don't hesitate to book. We are just sad we did not get to know the owners better as they lived on the property,
Mr Page
June 2017
The setting of this cottage is out of this world - what a lovely place to be.. If you love nature no better place. To wake up in a morning and see your surroundings sets you up for the day.

Had a great time, it is in a great location in between Whitby and Scarborough and in a very peaceful setting. Couldn't have asked for a better cottage in terms of amenities, all the essentials were just there.
Mr Neatherway
February 2016
In stunning surroundings! It is not far from Scarborough or Whitby if you need anything, yet was isolated enough to have the peace and quiet for a relaxing holiday. An absolutely beautiful area to explore whichever direction you head in. A really cosy cottage on all fronts with the log burning fire being particularly comforting. The beds were clean, fresh and very comfortable. Really cannot say enough to compliment this beautiful cottage; I have already recommended it to two other parties who're looking at visiting the area. Had a fantastic holiday regardless of the very unpredictable weather.
Mr Stone
January 2016
A very pleasant cottage which was well equipped, very comfortable and in a peaceful location. Loved the wood burner. The owners were friendly and helpful. Overall a very good stay was had by all of us.
Mr Frinton
November 2015
The property was top-notch. Our hosts have put a lot of thought, care and energy into it all, so that the cottage is everything and more than we could have expected for a relaxing week away in a home away from home. Our hosts really had thought of everything down to a ready-to-light fire, and hot water bottles. Everywhere was cosy, well equipped and spotlessly clean. It was great to stay somewhere where the host has not compromised on décor, or furnishings etc. This was a first class break. Thanks.
Miss Stokes
October 2015

Mrs Lyne
June 2014
Swallow Cottage was a lovely comfortable place to stay for a relaxing holiday. The house and grounds are very well maintained, with nice little touches for visitors, like picnic tables around the grounds. I loved being near enough to see the sea from just up the drive from the house, and the countryside views are very attractive. The owners were friendly and obviously working hard to keep everything up to a high standard. I loved the peace and quiet and the ponies!
Mrs Hoggins
June 2014
The whole stay was wonderful, I would live in the cottage as my everyday home and the owner could not be more helpful.
Mrs Gettings
May 2014
The position has fantastic views and we enjoyed the owners attention to detail.
May 2014
Clean, well equipped and comfortable throughout. The owners of this property have done all they can to make their guests stay the best it can be. One grouse that I did have.. and not the owners fault in the least.. was to find the previous user of the washer/dryer had washed their dog's blanket and/or towel in it. My clothes came out covered in short white dog hairs.. and I do mean 'covered'. Not best pleased with that and said so in the visitors book as a reminder to any future holiday makers who may be rather short on consideration and respect for others ! But apart from that Swallow Cottage is a lovely place to stay at.
Mr Clay
April 2014
The accommodation was absolutely lovely, as good as it looks on the pictures. The owners were very helpful and recommended lots of places to try out. I would definitely go back.

It was ideally situated for coast and countryside. Our children loved the cottage and garden and it was very safe. We could let them play in the garden with minimal supervision.
Mr Marshall

We spent a wonderful quiet week at Swallow Cottage, with our two small dogs who were welcomed enthusiastically by the owners dog "Ginnie", We could not have asked for a more lovely place to stay, with the wood burner a treat on the cold evenings after our long walks along the Cleveland Way.

My husband and I and our 2 Border Collies have just had a fantastic long weekend in this delightful cottage. The location is ideal for local walks directly out from the cottage which take in old railway track sites, Cleveland way and beauiful beaches. Pippa, Graham and Ginny the dog make you feel very genuinely welcome to their property which is located just beside their own property. Everything that you could require is provided and the cottage oozes character. It is cosy but ample sized and very quickly feels like home. We appreciated the fresh flowers and the welcome tea tray complete with locally sourced ginger and choc chip biscuits! We will definitely be going back!
Mrs WilliamsSmith

Pippa and Graham are two very nice, friendly people who will make you feel at home when you arrive at the holiday cottage on their farm. Private, very clean with all the comforts of home and scenery to die for, even when the weather is bad! We will be going back, as do so many.
Ms Dawson
November 2012
Wow, what an absolutely beautiful cottage in a perfect location. The cottage was so cosy and quaint with beautiful furnishings and such attention to detail. The farm and it's land were beautiful, stunning views and perfect location for local attractions. The owners made us feel so welcome and their Airedale Terrier Ginny was the perfect playmate for our terrier Archie. The owner gave us vouchers for money off at the Sea Life Centre which saved us £15. The cottage was beautifully clean and very warm and cosy. They had provided a great travel cot and highchair for our baby daughter. When we arrived there was a pint of milk in the fridge and all tea and coffee making facilities ready for us with gorgeous locally made cookies, wonderful touch. Cannot fault Swallow Cottage one bit and can't wait to return.

Two friends and ourselves had a very pleasant stay in June, weather reasonably good considering this summer. Cottage was very clean with all the extras you could wish for. Owners very nice but did not see them after taking over the property as they were off on holiday the following day. Cottage handy for attractions and a nice place to return to at the end of the day.
Mrs Parsons

From the moment we arrived we felt relaxed after a lovely warm welcome from Graham. The place was spotless! Best of all we could open the front door each morning to off-lead dog walks on Pippa and Graham's farmland. Beautiful sunrises will live long in the memory.
Mrs Green

The cottage is in a great location between the sea and the North York Moors. It is ideal to suit either the land lover or the sea lover! It is a fantastic cottage in a peaceful location and the tourist resorts of Whitby, Scarborough, and Dalby Forest are only a stone's through away! We went for a relaxing weeks holiday for our anniversary and came back fully charged! Bliss!

This was our second visit after an absence of 4 years and the condition of the property was still as good as we remembered it. The owners welcomed us well with a tray of tea and biscuits. They were friendly and there if you needed anything. The property location is ideal for exploring the area and not too far to walk to the Cloughton Station tea lounge! In my view this is a model holiday cottage.

Mrs Hamilton
February 2010
We loved our stay at Swallow Cottage, the cottage was clean, modern and very welcoming. The log fire is fabulous it makes the cottage more homely. My 3yr old loved her time at Swallow Cottage mostly due to Tommy the horse! and the highland cattle. The location was brilliant as we were based centrally giving access to both Scarborough and Filey which we love for the the seaside aspect and also access to Robin Hood Bay which we could go rock pooling. The only downside was that we had 3 days of total fog but thats the weather for you! I would recommend Swallow cottage to our family and friends.

The setting was fantastic and the cottage better than we could ever have imagined. It was a perfect relaxing hideaway with wonderful walks for all ages. The grading was too low! We will definitely be returning.

The location of the cottage was absolutley spectacular! Waking up in the morning, opening the curtains and seeing that view was a dream come true. The perfect place to relax and get away from it all. The owners were very friendly and made us feel very welcome.

Friendly hosts, very clean cottage, kitchen well enough equipped to cook a great Christmas dinner, and we have been provided with a proper Christmas tree! Lovely view and quiet area, great area for walking and fossil hunting, we even saw seals.

We found the owners very helpful. It seemed that we had the whole of the farm to ourselves, as they were not in your face.

We cannot recommend this cottage, or it's location highly enough. Very comfortable to come back to after a hard day's walking with the dog!

The cottage was like a home from home, a great place to come back to after a day's exploring. There was just everything you needed, but know you would have forgotten yourself. The welcome was great and the tea and biscuits waiting for us when we arrived was a brilliant touch. A great location for Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay, the North York Moors Railway and just ambling about.
