Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Apart from 2-3 steps into the property all is on one level. The room with the en-suite bathroom is excellent for anyone with mobility issues as it is a wet-room. The property was extremely well equipped; everything had been thought of to ensure our stay was as comfortable as possible. The views from all windows was either of countryside or of a beautiful lake nearby the property. Location of the property enabled trips to the Lake District, Cumbria and parts of North Yorkshire so a VERY good touring base. Nov 2012.
  2. Swallow’s Nest is a superb, beautifully appointed cottage. The situation is absolutely quiet. The adjacent lake has waterfowl which provide an added interest, in additon to sheep and lambs. June 2012.
  3. Very high quality of space design, fittings and finish throughout. Very friendly owners and beautiful setting. The cleanest house we’ve ever rented. Well stocked kitchen. Worth its 5 star rating, would love to go again. The kids didn’t even moan about only having one TV, as there was so much to see outside the house. April 2012.
  4. This is a lovely property, no sounds of traffic as situated well off the road. For bird lovers this is ideal as there is a lovely lake which attracts a variety of ducks and geese etc. Not far to go to shops though and you are centrally placed for both the Dales and the Lake District. April 2012.
  5. Very comfortable and spacious for family of 6. Lovely grounds and really quiet location to get away from it all. Positioning of property in relation to Lake District was very reasonable and only took 45 minutes drive to get to the heart of the Lakes. Property owners have made Swallow’s Nest an excellent home-from-home and would thoroughly recommend this superb cottage to everyone. 10 out of 10. We are coming back next year. March 2012.
  6. This holiday home was perfect we all enjoyed it so very much. The attention to detail was A1. It was so good we tried to rush back everyday so as to make the most of our time. Out of all the lakes I feel the one situated within the grounds of the property was the best. Get up at sunrise to watch the sun rise across the lake and the birds and wild life. Thank you Rich, Selina, Chris, and Steve Beal. March 2012.
  7. Best cottage ever stayed at. Stunning location. Peace & tranquility. Aug 2011.
  8. A lovely property to arrive at and return to after a day of sightseeing. Well equipped,new and modern with lovely furnishings. Great setting over looking the lake and its wildlife with nice views over the hills and farmland. 3 miles from Kirkby Stephen a small market town with all amenities. The Pennines are on your doorstep, the Lakes about 45mins away. Enjoy, we did. July 2011.
  9. The cottage is very remote and in a fantastic setting with a lake outside of the kitchen window. Its very very beautiful and quiet. Lots of different birds and wildlife. May 2011.
