This charming one bedroomed cottage is a perfect romantic getaway for couples. It is very spacious, with a good size kitchen/diner and a separate lounge with a woodburning stove downstairs and a large double bedroom upstairs. There is underfloor heating throughout the ground floor. Swallow Cottage is pet friendly and has private off road parking. There is a proliferation of wildlife in this little corner of Fryup, the cottage has an enchanting mature shared garden with trees, shrubs, a large pond and salmon in the adjacent Great Fryup Beck. The property is situated in the beautiful Great Fryupdale, within the North York Moors National Park, a peaceful area of hills, woods, moorland heather, small farms and grazing sheep. The area is a walking and cycling paradise and a great base to visit many tourist attractions, both on the coast and moors, such as the historic seaside resort of Whitby and the smaller and interesting villages of Staithes, Runswick Bay and Robin Hood's Bay. The popular market towns of Guisborough, Pickering, Helmsley and Kirbymoorside are within an easy drive away. Flamingo land and Roseberry Topping are similarly easy to visit. The historic North York Moors Railway is close by and regular steam service to Whitby and Pickering through often wonderful scenery is a must for many of our visitors. The Moors centre at Danby is just three miles away and a newly opened Cycle Hub is about a mile away where a range of bikes, mountain, road and electric can be hired. Situated nearby, Danby Castle belonged to the Neville family and Catherine Parr lived there prior to her becoming Henry VIII’s last wife.
