“Stunning house, great location”
Reviewed 14 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Swallows Nest is a beautifully presented cottage with great views. We got really lucky with the weather and enjoyed a sunny week of long walks and visiting friends. The cottage was a perfect base for exploring the countryside nearby. Sally was really helpful and made us feel very welcome. She has done an amazing job with the house - it is a beautiful barn conversion, done to a very high spec and tastefully decorated throughout. We appreciated all the extra thoughtful touches and would highly recommend a stay here.

“Excellent and peaceful”
Reviewed 21 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Our family stay was relaxing and peaceful. The accomodation, the welcome and the area was all 5 star. The rooms are clean and modern with all the facilities that you require, Sally is welcoming and helpful and the area is idyllic for a relaxing break with hillside walks on the doorstep.

“A beautiful place with everything you need”
Reviewed 17 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

The Swallows Nest is a beautiful cottage in the lovely Slaithwaite. The place has been done to a high standard with attention to detail but still feels lovely and homely.
I booked the cottage for my 30th birthday and travelled with my partner and friends, we all thought the place was lovely as did friends and family that popped up to the cottage. We felt looked after and had everything we needed and even the fire had been lit for us for our arrival, which made it feel so very cosy.
With a 10-15 minute walk down into Slaithwaite itself, with access to trains to the likes of Huddersfield, Leeds, York or Manchester it really is a lovely place to stop and travel from. The walk back up to the cottage is all up hill but manageable and the views are worth it.
I will definitely be booked again when we next visit from the Netherlands.
