These traditional stone farm buildings have been individually and lovingly transformed into delightful holiday homes, welcoming you on a memorable stay in Yorkshire.

Swallow’s Folly is a quirky cottage, so named due to the swallows who return each summer to nest by the front door. Stepping inside you have the kitchen with a dining area beneath a beamed ceiling, perfect for creating romantic meals to share. Also on the ground floor is a well-presented double bedroom as well as the shower room. Upstairs on the first floor you have the living room, with elevated views. This is the perfect choice for couples looking for a romantic rural getaway.

The owners have endeavoured to ensure that every guest has a wonderful stay, with a beautiful on-site swimming pool, which is kept at a comfortable 28C. You can start each day with an invigorating swim, or wind down in an evening in the clear warm water. There is also a sauna in the pool room which can be used at an additional cost. Besides the pool room you have a BBQ area with picnic benches and elevated views over the surrounding countryside. This destination is a haven for wildlife, where you can catch glimpses of deer as they venture from the woodland. Also, on-site you have a games room, which has pool table as well as table tennis and a selection of books and board games, which are sure to keep you entertained.

The cottage is a couple of miles outside of the peaceful village of Cloughton, which has two friendly local pubs, serving lovely homemade meals. The nearest coastal spot is Hayburn Wyke, where you have a woodland walk with a waterfall cascading over the cliff top onto a secluded cove. There is an 18th-century coaching inn here, serving hearty meals as well as tasty desserts in front of a roaring open fire. The Cleveland Way and the Cinder Track are scenic walking trails nearby, taking in Ravenscar and Robin Hood’s Bay on the way towards the seafaring town of Whitby.

The North Yorkshire Moors National Park has some delightful little villages amongst the vast stretches of heather strewn hills and valleys. There is also the ancient Dalby Forest which has brilliant cycle and walking trails to be explored. Enjoy the great outdoors and take in your surroundings whilst having a welcoming base to return to, making your holiday one to treasure.
This property can be booked together with Bartlett’s Barn (UK38276), Over Across (UK38277) and May Cottage (UK38279) to accommodate up to 12 adults and 3 children.
