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.

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.

Fantastic location within easy walks to the coast and a local pub.
Welcoming and helpful owners who even towed the cars which were stuck in the snow.
Log fires and a dishwasher - what more do you need?

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.
