“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!

“Amazing return to this lovely cottage”
Reviewed 10 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We came back to the Swallows nest after first visiting a couple of years ago. Yet again, we had an amazing stay and Sally was a great host. The cottage is beautifully kept and all the small touches make a difference! Standing just outside the front door you can look over the hills - even in the rainy weather the view is stunning. Already planning the next trip!

Had a fabulous half term here with our two teenage boys. Great setting with views down the valley from the contemporary kitchen space. Tasteful touches, particularly impressed with the Emma Bridgewater mugs. Very comfortable, interestingly designed and an ideal place to relax. Owner very personable and helpful advice on where to get fresh local products.
Enjoyable walks along the Huddersfield Canal and on the nearby hills.
The boys appreciated the WiFi!
