Swallows Nest has room for a maximum of 5 guests plus an additional cot supplied on request. We can not accept extra adults or children due to fire restrictions.
The accommodation is set on a working farm with animals and farming equipment. Therefore, we do ask that all our guests take this into consideration and are especially careful when supervising young children. Due to safety precautions, guests are not permitted to touch the animals.
Please note, we are not a party venue, we cater for groups and families who are looking for a quiet stay in the peaceful Yorkshire countryside. Anti-social behavior will not be tolerated and guests will be asked to vacate the property immediately.

Additional cot and/or highchair

If required, Swallows Nest will provide a cot and/or high chair free of charge. Please advise us via the booking form at the time of booking to ensure your request is met.
