  • "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.

About the location


Osmotherley 4 miles; Stokesley 6 miles; Northallerton 8 miles.

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.
