Swang Cottage description

Holiday home
Swang Cottage is a delightful stone-built cottage in the village of Glaisdale, North Yorkshire. Hosting two bedrooms; a double, and a twin, (all beds are 3 inches shorter than standard), along with a shower room, this property can sleep up to four people. Inside you will also find a kitchen, dining room, and sitting room each with a woodburning stove. To the outside is secure bike storage, and an enclosed rear lawned garden with hot tub, fire pit and furniture. Situated in a beautiful countryside setting, Swang Cottage is a lovely retreat in a desirable part of England.

A peaceful village on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, Glaisdale is set amongst beautiful countryside in the heart of the Esk Valley. The village itself has a post office in the general store, an excellent butcher (famed for his pork pies) and one hotel/pub, with restaurant. Further afield, Whitby and the coast are just 9 miles away whilst the quaint moorland villages of Hutton-le-Hole, Lastingham and Thornton Dale and the market town of Pickering are all within easy touring distance. For something a little quieter, why not take a trip to the less-discover gem of Saltburn by the Sea, a charming, Victorian seaside resort. The terminus of the North York Moors Railway is at nearby Grosmont, inviting you to take a steam railway ride back in history through beautiful moorland scenery.

From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?

Rosie met us to walk us around the house.Immaculately clean cottage with a great hot tub to soak in after a long day walking. Pub within walking distance along with a post office/shop. Great walking on the doorstep.

Had a great week at Swang Cottage, Rosie met us on arrival and gave us a tour of the property and all the info required for a trouble free week, the cottage is ideal for touring the area and visiting the seaside towns, also the moor walks are on the doorstep. The hot tub is a great addition to the cottage and there is a selection of good pubs in the local area for meals out. We would highly recommend this property and a big thanks to Rosie the owner.

Cottage very well equipped and nicely decorated. Lovely "welcome" pack, we didn't need the woodburners as we had wall to wall sunshine. Fantastic sunsets from lounge window. Hot tub great after a day out walking on moors straight from cottage. Steam train trips nearby ( great for Harry potter and heartbeat fans) Good pubs nearby for eating out

The host was really polite and the cottage was fantastic.. It had so many thoughtful extras and set in such a beautiful location. The hot tub was perfect addition the a wonderful week away. The pubs are at least a 30 min walk from cottage and being a couple who are tall the beds are small! (We didn't realise how small!!). Also if you take a dog please ensure they have some sort of tick prevention. We found a tick in our dog which was stressful. Overall would recommend and fab!!!

Lovely comfortable and cosy cottage in a peaceful area with beautiful views.. Had everything we could possibly need, the hot tub was a great way to relax in the evening under the stars and garden is fully enclosed and private. Within easy reach of Whitby, Sandsend and Goathland and can walk on the Moors from the doorstep. Received a lovely welcome from Rosie (the owner) and she is on hand should you need anything. Highly recommend and hope to return next year.

What a beautiful cottage right on the Yorkshire Moors.. The photos didn’t do it justice and definitely exceeded my expectations. The host Rosie was really lovely and very helpful. There was everything we needed, she had thought of everything. The hot tub was the icing on the cake. Would love to go again.

Xmas holiday 2018.. Could not fault our 5 day stay over the festive period. Rosie was there to meet in person and had the log fires burning away. Cottage was immaculate and decorated with a lovely festive theme. The festive hamper of goodies was a wonderful touch and extremely greatful. Cottage has everything you would ever need and more. We did a full Xmas dinner with no issues. Location is beautiful and amazing for walks right from the front door. Without doubt best cottage break ever been on. Rosie is a wonderful and generous host.

Stayed for a wonderful week at Swang cottage, beautiful place in a stunning location.. Spotlessly clean, very comfortable beds (we had the best nights sleep in ages) gorgeous decor and had everything there you could need for a week away. The hot tub was a fantastic addition, even in the cold weather! The moors are on the doorstep for some stunning walks and the location of the cottage is so peaceful. Highly recommend this cottage and the owner who was so helpful, we will definitely come back.

We booked a long weekend at this dog friendly cottage and we are so glad we did!!!! On arrival the owner met us to give us a quick guide to how everything worked, and left a welcome basket full off goodies including wine, logs for the fire and other essential items. It is beautiful decorated and Immaculately clean and equipped with everything you could possibly need!! After a long walk on the Yorkshire Moors the hot tub in the garden eased our aching muscles. We would highly recommend staying here and we will definitely be back xx

A beautiful dog friendly cottage set in the Yorkshire moors, with a fantastic hot-tub to soak in after a long hike! !!! We were made to feel welcome the moment we arrived as the owner met us to give us a quick guide around and show us how everything worked, it was immaculately clean and decorated to a high standard and equipped with everything you could possibly need. There was even a lovely welcome basket filled with flowers wine and essential items. Just over a miles walk from Swang Cottage there is a fantastic pub called The Board Inn which served amazing food and was also very dog friendly We will definitely be going back to stay again and would highly recommend Swang Cottage xx Suzie
