Just out of Malton down a country lane, the site was convenient for accessing this part of North Yorkshire as well as shops and amenities in Malton, a decent sized market town. Very quiet and immaculately kept, the cottage is worth visiting for the toiletries...More

About the neighbourhood
For anyone looking for quiet, unspoilt countryside, Ryedale would be difficult to better, having some first class farming in a very much alive rural area, bounded by the Wolds, the Howardian Hills and to the north, the Moors with their own dales, each one full of character. Our area is full of interest for anyone. Just a few miles to the north is Pickering, the gateway to the North York Moors National Park and terminus of the N.Y.M Railway over the moors to Grosmont and Whitby. Nearby are Castle Howard and other stately homes well worth a visit, whilst the ruined Abbeys at Kirkham, Byland and Rievaulx lie in peaceful settings and can make lovely places in which to have your picnic. All the old North and East Yorkshire towns and villages of character lie within easy reach of Swans ...
How to get there
Easily accessible - about 4 miles from the centre of Malton. Travel along the A64 (Malton bypass) and turn onto the A169 towards Pickering. Take the first left - about 200 Metres - signposted Eden Camp/Ryton. Continue along this road for about 1.5 miles. Swans Nest Cottage/Abbotts Farmhouse are signposted on the right down a local lane. Go right to the end of the lane - the cottage and house are on the right.
