COVID-19 UPDATE 4th July 2020
We are delighted to have reopened, having achieved the 'Good To Go' industry standard by complying with government and Public Health England guidance. We will be leaving a minimum of 24 hours between guests to allow us time to thoroughly air, clean and sanitise our accommodation.
We hope you will have a wonderful holiday here. As things begin to reopen, there will be plenty to do but you may also simply want to stay at the accommodation and relax. The fields and woods are teaming with wildlife; you will be sure to see plenty of visitors to the new Bird Café and may see our resident barn owls, as well as rabbits and hares and the occasional deer.
We look forward to seeing you soon!

The Swallow’s Nest lies next to a working arable farm in the East Riding of Yorkshire, surrounded by miles and miles of open countryside.
On our doorstep, there is a golf course, fishing lakes, a water sports centre and an abundance of wildlife.
In the summer months, swallows nest in the nooks and crannies of the farm buildings and you will be able to see them swooping in and out of their nests, feeding their young.
Look out at dusk for our resident barn owl, gliding silently over the fields and for deer, which make a fleeting appearance in our woodland.
