Description

This charming one bedroomed cottage is a perfect romantic getaway for couples. It is very spacious, with a good size kitchen/diner and a separate lounge with a woodburning stove downstairs and a large double bedroom upstairs. There is underfloor heating throughout the ground floor. Swallow Cottage is pet friendly and has private off road parking. There is a proliferation of wildlife in this little corner of Fryup, the cottage has an enchanting mature shared garden with trees, shrubs, a large pond and salmon in the adjacent Great Fryup Beck. The property is situated in the beautiful Great Fryupdale, within the North York Moors National Park, a peaceful area of hills, woods, moorland heather, small farms and grazing sheep. The area is a walking and cycling paradise and a great base to visit many tourist attractions, both on the coast and moors, such as the historic seaside resort of Whitby and the smaller and interesting villages of Staithes, Runswick Bay and Robin Hood's Bay. The popular market towns of Guisborough, Pickering, Helmsley and Kirbymoorside are within an easy drive away. Flamingo land and Roseberry Topping are similarly easy to visit. The historic North York Moors Railway is close by and regular steam service to Whitby and Pickering through often wonderful scenery is a must for many of our visitors. The Moors centre at Danby is just three miles away and a newly opened Cycle Hub is about a mile away where a range of bikes, mountain, road and electric can be hired. Situated nearby, Danby Castle belonged to the Neville family and Catherine Parr lived there prior to her becoming Henry VIII’s last wife.

Reviews

Just what we needed! A few days away relaxing in a beautiful rural setting and in a cosy little cottage exploring the North Yorkshire Coast. Perfect

Karen and Liam - Staffordshire,

We've had a great time. Very well appointed cottage. You've thought of everything and a beautiful area to visit

Charlie and Jackie - Crawley,

Thank you for a fabulous holiday in your beautiful cottage. Weather has been very kind so we have been able to explore Moors and beaches. Thanks

Julie and Rory - Kent,

Such a peaceful and homely cottage. We've had a restful and invigorating stay. We look forward to returning

Zoe and James - Newcastle upon Tyne,

Really nice cottage. Cosy and warm despite the stormy weather on last few days. Thank you

Brian and Chris - Cheshire,

Becky and Andy - Surrey,

We really enjoyed our stay and found the cottage well equipped and a great location for exploring

Naomi and Jamie - Northampton,

Thank you for the wonderful place to stay. The cottage was great, quiet, peaceful and well equipped. Many great places to see.

Owen and Marret - Germany,

Thank you Judy and Graham for inviting us to enjoy your beautiful, relaxing garden and extraordinary views. The highlight was to see the barn owl five times flying past your gate next to the bridge at 6pm. Also the woodpeckers in your wood. I don't think we will ever have a close up of a barn owl - wonderful. Added to all this, your accommodation has been first class. We have been very lucky with the weather

Pat and Richard - Doncaster,

Back again. Lovely and quiet. Everything perfect. Thank you

Ruth and Mark - Bingley,

Very nice cottage. Would definately book again

Lee and Ollie - 35 & 6,

We have enjoyed our stay so much. Went into Whitby one day, did the NYMR to Goathland, went on a Moor walk to the Fox and Hounds with Lucy dog. It's so peaceful here waking up to calmness and birds singing. The weather was great. The house has everything you need - it's perfect. We would like to come back

Evy and Janny - Tooting,
