    “Chuckle Cottage was exactly what we needed and were looking for on our holidays.”

    Super clean and perfectly cozy, with a lovely shower, kitchen with all amenities, and fast wifi, and is very dog-friendly. It's a great spot from which to explore the North York Moors! I highly recommend it.

The property

On the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors, in the tranquil village of Swainby, you will find this delightful, mid-terraced hide-away, Chuckle Cottage.

As you walk to the front door, you will notice the bench at the front of the property, which is simply ideal for relaxing in the sunshine with a morning coffee or an afternoon tea, whilst the scent of lavender and herbs will complete this welcoming first impression.

Inside is an open plan living area, with a bespoke kitchen, breakfast bar and everything you need to rustle up some lovely meals and why not make use of the cool box and picnic basket in warmer weather too for your days out spent exploring.

In the sitting room, the classic sofa and armchair provide comfortable, snuggly seating in front of a cosy log burning stove and beautiful art work adorns the walls and pretty object d’art add to the welcoming and homely feel.

Upstairs, through handmade oak latch doors, there is a double bedroom with built in wardrobes and a comfortable bed, all made up with quality bed linen, awaiting your arrival.

The single room has a comfortable bed with chest of drawers, suitable for a child or adult alike.

The bathroom has a modern, double walk-in shower, basin and W.C and a drying rack is provided for any damp clothing which will soon dry in front of the large heated towel rail, where towels are provided. Guests can make use of a secure outbuilding, which has racks for bikes as well as boots which does come in handy as there are many routes for cycling and walking available in the area. In the village of Swainby, there are two dog friendly pubs, both serving delicious food and are most welcoming to visitors.

There is also a divine café, ‘The Rusty Bike’ where you can also hire bikes and it also stocks essentials such as bread and milk.

On certain days there is even a postal service from the village hall as well as other events and activities in this progressive little village.

Scugdale Beck, with its many ducks, runs along the length of the High Street and through the village.

There is also a lovely pub and café in the nearby village of Ingleby Cross.

The Market towns of Stokesley and Northallerton are roughly equidistant to the East and West of the village, providing a larger selection of cafes, restaurants and shops.

The well-known village of Osmotherly is up and over the moor about 4 miles and would take you past Cod Beck reservoir too.

The historical Mount Grace Priory, owned by the national Trust; the ruined Whorlton Castle are very nearby as is Renny Lake for course fishing.

Chuckle Cottage is perfectly situated for trekking; cycling and horse riding in the North Yorkshire Moors, as well as the Cleveland Walk; Lyke Wake Walk; Roseberry Topping and the Seaside towns of Whitby and Scarborough. A little further afield are the towns of York; Harrogate; Richmond and Ripon.

The sights of County Durham, Northumberland and Cleveland are also not too far to the North, not forgetting the Tees Barage for white water rafting and kayaking, as well as the Air Trail for adventurous children and adults too.

Further west, the Yorkshire dales are also within easy reach.

We welcome dogs at Chuckle Cottage, with treats, throws and a drying towel provided, but please check with the owner if you would like to bring more than one.

This property is perfect for a small family, three adventure seeking friends or couples wanting a romantic break away.

Chuckle Cottage, as its name suggests, is a relaxing hideaway, which would make anyone smile.

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.

Please note this property has a good house keeping bond for £250.
