Really surprised to come across this stunning barn conversion transformed into a holiday cottage and John and Katy have really created something special to enjoy and savour.
Just had an amazing weekend relaxing and exploring the local area whilst having our every need catered for by this gorgeous property.
We arrived to a lit fire with underfloor heating and thoroughly enjoyed a hamper full of local produce.
John and Katy were on hand to welcome us on arrival and from that moment nothing was any trouble. Cannot wait to go back and do exactly the same again.

“Weekend of relaxation and luxury. ”
Reviewed 20 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Having just spent a weekend with 2 girlfriends at the Cart Shed I can honestly say it was one of the most loveliest places we've stayed. We received a lovely warm welcome from John and Katy and a welcome pack which consisted of delicious homemade mince pies. The accommodation is highly thought out and beautifully decorated which gives it a warm and cosy feel. We were so relaxed we almost didn't go for our wonderful coastal walk to Flamborough (one of John and Katy's recommendations). It's just far enough out of the way to feel the peace and tranquility of its surroundings but also near enough to other places so you don't feel isolated - perfect! We chatted, giggled, drank wine and slept beautifully in warm cosy beds. An idyllic weekend for us to get away from our busy lives. Thank you Katy and John x

“Stunning, peaceful location!”
Reviewed 19 October 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed here for a week with my daughter, son-in-law, 7 month old baby and two dogs. My daughter lives in Clifford, West Yorkshire so didn't have far to travel. We came all the way from rural Aberdeenshire which was a long journey but totally worthwhile. When we saw the house and the location we were just bowled over at how beautiful the Cart Shed and farm were and how peaceful the location was. The conversion of the Cart Shed into such stunning accommodation is amazing to behold - we were very interested to see the photographs on display. John and Katy really were the perfect hosts and have thought of everything to make your stay problem-free. Swallows Nest is the perfect base for exploring East Yorkshire. We were only sorry that we didn't get to see more of it. If you're short of ideas about what to do and where to go there is plenty of information in the house and games to play if rain disrupts your plans. There are two enclosed gardens which our dogs loved and lots of places to walk locally. We loved our time here and were so sorry to leave. Don't hesitate - book a stay now!

“Well worth a stay...lovely place!”
Reviewed 10 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The barn conversion is very tasteful and well thought out...we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We had a lovely welcome and shown around the property...there was a complimentary welcome pack and a birthday cake (dairy and egg free) which was a lovely thought! The beds were comfy so we all slept well and we liked the games, DVDs and books as it kept us busy...and we loved toasting marshmallows around the campfire in the woods! We also appreciated the ideas for days out and enjoyed a lovely walk along the beach! I highly recommend a visit to this place...you wont be disappointed...

“Tranquility, Hospitality: Every detail provided.”
Reviewed 12 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed here with our Daughter and new Grand-son and two (well-behaved) dogs, for a wonderful week in late-August. The Cart Shed has been completed to a very high standard of design and detailing. The quality of interior design and the facilities provided are really excellent. John and Katy are wonderful hosts and very thoughtful and unobtrusive (but very responsive when you need anything - like fresh new laid eggs from their hens whenever you want).
We have stayed in many 5* hotels in our travels and many of them have not come up to John's & Katy's standards.
We saw the resident Barn Owl close-up twice flying out of the woods and also a baby hare grazing the close-by field.

Hopefully, we will be back for another visit in the Spring of 2017.

“Amazing again - 2nd visit & we'll be back for a 3rd!”
Reviewed 30 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We returned to the Cart Shed just 5 months after we first visited because we loved it so much the first time. It remains an excellent and luxurious home away from home for us and for our 3 young children (1 of whom has additional needs so the space and lack of stairs is brilliant!). The outside space is great. We spotted lots of wildlife including a large deer walking just metres away from the window. John & Katy could not have been better hosts. Our online shopping was unpacked and ready for our arrival plus the very tasty welcome goodies waiting for us. We're looking forward to returning again next year!

“Great weekend break”
Reviewed 28 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

John & Katy gave us a warm welcome and left an excellent starter pack. Not only that, but had kindly put away all the groceries we had pre-ordered from the supermarket. The original cart shed has been renovated to a very high standard and very well appointed making it a perfect base for touring the area. We have a lot of experience in renting accommodation for holiday breaks and have to say that Swallow's Nest Cottages is one of the best we have seen. Thanks John & Katy.
