Staintondale is a delightful scattered village on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors, close to the coast. Midway between the fishing town of Whitby, with its famous Abbey, and the Spa town of Scarborough, with its theatres and entertainment, it is a haven of peace offering the best of both worlds. The Staintondale Shire Horse Farm is just down the road, while there is a network of footpaths and bridleways in the village. A superb base from which to explore the region.

Mrs Hill, Derby, January 2013
Lovely accommodation and stunning views. We were looking for 2 accommodations together to spend the New Year with friends, 4 kids and 2 cockapoos! It was perfect! Loved the cosy cottage and open fire in the evening. Great local dog friendly pub. Wish we could of stayed longer!
Mrs Williams - Smith, Lutterworth, December 2012
Wow, what an absolutely beautiful cottage in a perfect location. The cottage was so cosy and quaint with beautiful furnishings and such attention to detail. The farm and it's land were beautiful, stunning views and perfect location for local attractions. The owners made us feel so welcome and their Airedale Terrier Ginny was the perfect playmate for our terrier Archie. The owner gave us vouchers for money off at the Sea Life Centre which saved us £15. The cottage was beautifully clean and very warm and cosy. They had provided a great travel cot and highchair for our baby daughter. When we arrived there was a pint of milk in the fridge and all tea and coffee making facilities ready for us with gorgeous locally made cookies, wonderful touch. Cannot fault Swallow Cottage one bit and can't wait to return.

The cottage is set in beautiful surroundings and is very comfortable and well equipped. The children really enjoyed the freedom of being able to explore safely and the hosts made us feel very welcome. The cottage is also well placed for visiting Scarborough and Robin Hood's bay.

We liked being able to relax in and around the cottage. The owners always make us feel welcome and looked after. The location is excellent with fantastic views.
Mrs Major, Manchester, July 2012
The cottage is in a great location between the sea and the North York Moors. It is ideal to suit either the land lover or the sea lover! It is a fantastic cottage in a peaceful location and the tourist resorts of Whitby, Scarborough, and Dalby Forest are only a stone's through away! We went for a relaxing weeks holiday for our anniversary and came back fully charged! Bliss!
