We were looking for a Yorkshire-based cottage that sleeps six adults - with three double beds - for a friends reunion, and it proved to be a challenge, but it was certainly worth it for the result .. so glad we found The Swallows Nest.
Great location to begin with, but the cottage is superb - a beautifully restored cart shed finished to a very high standard, evidently well maintained and fitted with everything you could possibly need - the very friendly owners are close by (but not too close) if you need anything. We were lucky with the weather, able to sit on the fenced-in patio into the evening (who said it was October ?) to watch the stars, sadly not needing to light up the lovely log stove.
And the setting is gorgeous, surrounded by trees and fields in every direction yet close to main roads for Hull, Beverley, the coast and beyond. The village of Brandesburton is lovely with two stores and two excellent pubs (and take-aways) within walking distance.
Really can't recommend this find highly enough !
We returned to the Cart Shed for the third time and, once again, it didn't disappoint! Lots of options for days out all within a 45 minute drive. John and Katy are brilliant hosts including sorting our online shopping into cupboards before our arrival, providing a yummy welcome hamper on arrival and ensuring that there were some toys available for our children to play with. Our children loved to visit to the hens each day to check for eggs (their faces were priceless when they found some!). We were very lucky with the weather so were able to watch some beautiful sunsets and sunrises from the patio. This place is such an amazing find and perfect for our needs. We intend returning again next year!
John and Katy made us so welcome to their delightful Cart Shed. It is a beautifully converted barn providing very comfortable and superb space for a restful and peaceful break. Everything is provided and the conversion is of the highest quality. A food hamper with the best products, their own tasty free range eggs provided free and delicious home made scones awaited our arrival. The attention to detail eg bird feeders on terrace, binoculars, umbrellas, decent sharp knives, quality kitchen ware, interesting books, local OS maps etc etc is incomparable. We were cycling and the roads around are usually quiet and mostly fairly flat. We had a lovely break and would highly recommend this holiday cottage. Many thanks to John and Katy
I can't find a single fault with this property, lovely place and lovely people.
We were celebrating our diamond wedding whilst we were there and they even baked us a delicious cake,
Every need was catered for, even a special towel for our dog.
Having just spent a long weekend at Swallow's Nest I must tell you all of this wonderful property. You are left wanting for nothing as the hosts ensure your stay is problem free and full of comfort and even a few little luxuries
The weather outside was not so kind so we took full advantage of the super warm barn and really enjoyed the log burner ( all logs supplied)
So many lovely touches it's difficult to list them all but the welcome pack and freshly baked scones make this wonderful property even more attractive
A jewel of a find !
Thank you so much John and Katy
Just come back from an amazing weekend for my husbands 30th! Wow what a fabulous place!
