Myself and 11 other family members hired all 3 superb cottages over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend. Due to my oldest brother and his family living in Spain we do not get together very often and this year we have a number of special birthday celebrations. My parents turning 60, one of My brothers and husband turning 40 and one my nieces turning 10, so we wanted somewhere special to go as a family. An I can certainly say that these 3 cottages are very special.
They are everything you could want when stopping away from home, from the pristine finish of the cottages right through the furnishings Lisa and Graham the owners have really thought of everything. other than our personal belongings, food and not forgetting the alcohol we didn't need anything else.
The cottages are set in beautiful surroundings along with a couple of Donkeys to play with (which the kids enjoyed). The kids also enjoyed the barn across from the cottages where they could play games including pool and table football. An we made use of for a small do on the Saturday night.
Dogs are welcome and there is a special wash down area for them after those long muddy walks over the fields.
The cottages are around 7 mile from Whitby, a 20 minute drive to Scarborough and a short drive or few mile walk to Boggle Hole where you can go crabbing and enjoy a fantastic coffee in the Café there.
A 5 minute walk from the cottages back up the lane there is a lovely pub that serves fantastic food
Overall we had a fantastic weekend away and nothing was too much for Lisa & Graham and we were well and truly looked after.
I 100% recommend the cottages to anyone.
Part of me doesn't want to write this review so that I can try to keep this little gem a secret! This is our second stay in Swallow's Rest and everything about it was perfect, from the sea view and donkeys outside our window, to the heated floors throughout the downstairs. We self-cater a lot and this property is without doubt one of the nicest we have stayed in, the rooms are spacious and comfortable, and there is everything you need to be totally home from home. The owners are friendly and helpful, and always available in case of problems (not that we had any)! Perfectly located for Robin Hood's Bay, Whitby and the surrounding areas. 5 stars!
Stayed for my birthday enjoyed meadow beck the peace and tranquillity is lovely visited Staithes .Robin hoods bay Bella our Cockerpoo loved the beach .Meadowbeck☺is very comfortable .beautiful views from cowslip we watched sun rise and set .will definitely be back
Staying here at the moment and words fail me. The cottage is as stunning on the inside as it is on the outside. The attention to detail is outstanding. I'm really fussy and stay over in this area visiting family a couple of times a month and been disappointed on several occasions with our choice of accommodation in the past but this cottage ticks every box. Weather not good but underground heating is lush and cottage cosy. Even a hot water bottle provided if needed. Definitely hope to return again soon. Thank you Lisa & Graham x
