Visitor Comments:"This was a wonderful holiday - the house was perfect and in a beautiful location. I would especially thank you for providing all we need (wood - much appreciated in the snow; and all those household needs taken for granted - loo roll, bin bags, kitchen roll etc). The house is furnished to a very high standard and furnishings are very comfortable and much appreciated - thank you!
We especially were grateful for the personal touch by Melanie - the housekeeper - and Sue - the owner, given the snow and the slightly 'hairy' road situation." HF
"We had a lovely time at Swinsty. The house and location are both brilliant and the sun shone all the time! I'm sure we will book it again some time in the future." PS
"We're getting in touch to let you know we had a wonderful time at Swinsty. It's a beautiful part of the world and we were lucky with the weather. The cottage was superb and funnily enough I learned that I work with the grandson of the original owner. We have recommended it to everyone we know and wish you all the success with Sally's. A phenomenal time in a beautiful part of the country." DR
