We had a fabulous weekend here with 4 generations celebrating my mums 90th birthday. Surroundings are brill for kids and the pool, games room, football field and tennis court were a real bonus to entertain whole family. I highly recommend Swallows as a great place to stay

The cottage is in a lovely setting and very quiet and peaceful. The added entertainment on the small complex was an added bonus. The dining table was sufficient for all 12 adults to dine at one sitting which was important to our party. We all enjoyed our stay.

We were a group of 20 across Swallows and Cuckoo's Nest for a 70th birthday. The cottages are warm and cosy, well equipped and comfortable and in a stunning setting for excursions and walks. Lesley and her " crew" went out of their way to ensure we could eat and celebrate together, and the layout lends itself to small groups splitting up to chat wRead moreatch TV etc. The outdoors areas were beautiful even in crisp February sunshine and would be glorious to sit on summer evenings The leisure centre( it is soooo much more than a games room) was a fab bonus. The rota was a brilliant idea and we all loved the pool and the games. Even bought a piece of the artwork as a souvenir! We love to cook and brought supplies of ale so we didn't need to walk to a pub. has great recommendations for local pubs. Loads of parking and strolls from the door, easy drives to clitheroe settle and skipton to shop( although the cottages accept food deliveries too) and we also headed up to Malham, kirby lonsdale and the viaduct ( via courtyard dairy yum) Something for everyone and such great hosts!

Everything was excellent and all 10 of us had brilliant time. Pool and games room excellent for kids and pool allocation to each cottage worked well. The only thing we didn't like was the metallic taste of the water!

The property was loverly and set in amazing surroundings. The pool and games room were brilliant but the pool needs a bit of upkeep, as does some of the equipment in the games room. This didnt detract from our enjoyment though and wouldnt discourage me from rebooking

It doesnt specify on booking site that we had to strip beds before leaving and that we were only allocated one toilet roll per bathroom. For 12 people that is ridiculous. It was a surprise to me when I read the instructions that we had to strip the beds and sort the towels etc out for washing and still have to vacate the property fir 9.30. We werRead moree not able to have a proper breakfast. A later check out time would be better and an earlier in check in time. There was a faulty kettle and the fridge handle was broken making it difficult to open. A couple of king sized beds would have been better as well. Hide
