  • "Perfect little hideaway."

    Communication with Lynne was very easy. Very comfy beds. Immaculate everywhere. A fully equipped kitchen. No central heating but heaters in bedrooms and a lovely log burner which kept the cottage warm throughout. Parking on the street was easy. We attended the Remembrance service in the church across the road. This place is a real gem.

    I’m delighted you enjoyed your stay. Hope you come Back and stay again. Regards Lynne. Property Owner

  • "Cottage is lovely and internally well furnished and equipped."

    Only small suggestion is as the village has 1 shop that only opens weekends, a little welcome pack coffee, tea milk(that we have always had in previous cottages), would have been nice.

  • "Lovely small cottage ideal for a few days away."

    Tucked away from the main street it’s nice and quiet, although so is the village! Plenty of on road parking on the street.

  • "The cottage was clean and well catered for, we enjoyed staying there."

    The only reason it doesn't get top marks is because of a few issues which would be easy to rectify: The internet was off and on which was a pain, it spoiled evening TV viewing which didn't happen as we couldn't access the TV Apps. It was happening constantly while we were there. The kitchen knives were very blunt, not great for food preparation. Not the comfiest sofa and two sofas would be better as we were a party of three so either we sat together in a squashed row or one had to sit upright in the chair. I know the space isn't that big but a two seater sofa or a comfier chair would be better. Apart from that, it was lovely.

  • "A pleasant little cottage in a very quiet location."

    Downstairs is all in one with a nice well appointed kitchen . Comfortable armchair and sofa with a lovely log fire. Upstairs two basic bedrooms with moderately comfortable beds . Bath with shower over and an adequate shower , could do with an up rating to offer more water flow. Overall a pleasant stay in a pleasant cottage and a good location for coast , moors and towns.

    The two pubs in the village served fantastic food and everyone was very friendly. The local shop only opened Saturday and Sunday so for us staying Monday to Friday it was no good but there was plenty to do and the coast was only 30 minutes away Would definitely go back.

  • "I had a comfortable and pleasing stay at the cottage which was very clean and had everything I needed."

    My only criticism would be that the beds were too soft and left me with back ache and mirrors and shower were placed very high up the wall making them difficult to use. Nonetheless this is a sweet cottage in a great location and I would consider staying again.

  • "We enjoyed twelve nights in Swainby Cottage over the festive period."

    This is a sweet, homely cottage which is comfortable and well equipped. It is situated in a lovely location in the North Yorks National Park, surrounded by great scenery and good walks. We particularly enjoyed its proximity to two inviting market towns Stokesley and Northallerton with their independent shops and restaurants. Swainby itself is cute and compact, boasting two decent pubs, cafes and a useful village shop. We loved everything about the cottage and appreciated the efforts that had been made to make it festive for us, with lights, a welcome pack of prosecco and cake and even a little tree. The beds, sofa etc were comfy and there was a plentiful supply of hot water with a good shower. As I am asthmatic I knew in advance that we wouldn't use the woodburning stove in the living room. The cottage is marketed as having electric central heating. My one gripe is that the panel wall heaters which are effective in the living room and second bedroom are not actually central heating. Most importantly there is no heater in the master bedroom at all. Fine in summer but chilly in winter. With the addition of another heater the cottage would be suitable in even the coldest temps. We were lucky to have exceptionally mild weather during our stay. As a retired couple with health issues warmth is essential. Nonetheless we had a great stay and would recommend the cottage. We would also gladly return to it in the future.

Swainby is a village in the Hambleton district of North Yorkshire. Swainby is located at the north-western corner of the North York Moors National Park. The characteristics of the village and the surrounding area consist of traditional Yorkshire dry stone walls, hills, sheep, heather and moorland. The village is close to the ruins of Whorlton Castle. In the 19th century the housing of miners who worked the nearby hills for ironstone and jet led to an expansion of the village. Swainby contains two public houses, The Blacksmiths Arms and The Black Horse along with The Rusty Bike – a bike inspired café serving scrummy breakfast and lunches.
