“Great house, beautiful location, spotlessly clean”
Reviewed 10 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

I stayed at Swallow's Nest for a reunion with three friends and it was the perfect place to catch up. The house is spotlessly clean with all the amenities you could need. The wifi was excellent and the beds comfortable.

We didn't use the log burner as the weather was exceptionally warm, and the house itself was a great temperature. The rain shower was great with instant hot water. The kitchen is extremely bright and pleasant to cook in, and the lounge with dining table was perfect for an evening meal followed by relaxing and catching up.

We didn't venture too far as our prupose was not to explore the surrounding area, although we found the village in Slaithwaite had more than enough in terms of shops, bars and restaurants etc. We had hoped to visit the recommended Olive Branch for dinner on the Saturday, but in the end decided to stay local.

I would definitely recomment it to fellow travellers.

“Superb Holiday Rental”
Reviewed 24 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Just back from our second stay at Swallows Nest. What a delight it's been to stay at this property. A quirky layout, beautifully clean,comfy & cosy. Tastefully furnished with lots of thoughtful attention to detail ! Stunning location with magnificent views, yet just a comfortable stretch of the legs to all the local amenities. Heaps to do & see in the area, & if you're taking the car with you the whole of beautiful Yorkshire is, as they say, your oyster ! And if all that wasn't enough, the owners are friendly & helpful too ! Cannot recommend this property highly enough.

“beautiful, warm and cozy cottage with many extras”
Reviewed 27 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We loved staying in this beautiful house, with fantastic kitchen, relaxing atmosphere, beautiful view and warm and cozy bedrooms. In less than an hour we could visit the Peak District (Derwent Dam) to the south and York to the north. Because it was winter and wet, we didn't go for walks but I know for sure that this is a great place to walk through hills and forest.

Glad you enjoyed your stay despite the poor weather. You are correct in saying the walks around the hills and villages are wonderful when the sun shines as it is today!
