    “Lovely location.”

    Some areas of maintenance required around a few areas - peeling paint in dining areas, previous water damage in a few areas on ceilings and bath upstairs has rusty looking marks. That being said we really liked the property and would go back these points would just do the property a bit more justice. The cottage had everything we needed and was cozy.

    Some areas of maintenance required around a few areas - peeling paint in dining areas, previous water damage in a few areas on ceilings and bath upstairs has rusty looking marks. That being said we really liked the property and would go back these points would just do the property a bit more justice. The cottage had everything we needed and was cozy. All the little extras were very welcome - didn’t expect to have a bottle of wine, snacks and milk in the fridge! , lots of condiments in the cupboard and a good stock of essentials such as paper towels, washing liquids, extra hand soap etc so no need to bring too much. Really felt like a home from home.

The property

Nestled in the heart of Whitby, North Yorkshire is this superb three-bedroom, Grade II listed cottage, Swallow’s Nest.

Enjoying a location within the scenic North York Moors National Park with easy access to a selection of beautiful beaches and an interior boasting beautiful original features blended with contemporary additions, Swallow’s Nest is a fabulous dwelling for a group or family of six looking to explore the North Yorkshire coast.

Located on historic Church Street, the cottage has great accessibility with no steps or cobbles to negotiate which makes it a great place for those with less mobility.

Step into the glass and oak designer porch, where you can discard any coats and shoes after your journey.

Be welcomed into the inviting kitchen/diner, where you can look forward to preparing tasty dishes for your guests with the help of the range cooker with induction hob, fridge/freezer and microwave, all set among contemporary high-gloss cabinets.

Gather around the dining table for six to tuck-in to a delicious meal, as the wine is poured, and plans are made for the days ahead.

Completing the ground-floor is a beautifully presented double bedroom with its own en-suite shower room, ideal for those with limited mobility.

Climb the striking, oak floating staircase to the first-floor, home to the sitting room with a bay window offering fantastic harbour views, where you can look forward to relaxing on the generous corner sofa in front of your favourite film on the TV as the woodburning stove crackles nearby.

When sleep calls, you will find a second well-presented double bedroom with high-vaulted ceiling, served by a contemporary bathroom with bath for those indulgent evening soaks, as well as a splendid twin bedroom on the second floor with exposed beams and a dormer window with harbour views.

Take advantage of your central location, with the magnificent sights of historic Whitby right on your doorstep!

Make your way to the imposing Whitby Abbey, said to be the inspiration behind Bram Stokers famous vampire, Dracula, here you can explore the ruins which offer exceptional views over the town.

From here you can embark on the Dracula Experience, which leads you around the town to key spots and features animated scenes and live actors.

Budding historians are well-catered for in Whitby, with the local history museum offering a fascinating insight into the town, as well as the Captain Cook Memorial Museum, where you can learn more about the adventurer’s voyages to the South Pacific.

Be sure to check out Whitby’s family-friendly beach, where you can wander the golden sands, treat the little ones to a donkey ride during the summer months or indulge in fresh fish and chips followed by a leisurely stroll to the lighthouse.

For a fun-filled family day trip, why not head to Scarborough?

Here you can enjoy the delights of the grand medieval castle which boasts coastal views and hosts live events, as well as the attractions of the sea life centre, Alpamare waterpark and the Scarborough North Bay Railway.

Further afield is Pickering, home to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway for rides aboard a vintage steam train through the national park, as well as Pickering Castle and Beck Isle Museum.

For an unforgettable coastal getaway, secure your stay at Swallows Nest.
