Property Ref: 892
'Swift' sleeps 5 in 3 bedrooms, 4 beds. It is a stable conversion with exposed beams and purlins. The property is entirely on the ground floor with Porch leading into an open plan and spacious Sitting Room & Dining Room with vaulted ceiling, feature stonework, with Freeview TV, DVD Player and standalone wood-burning stove. A fire-guard is available upon request. A door from one corner of the Sitting Room leads to the fully-fitted Kitchen. Another door from the Sitting Room gives access to a corridor leading to a Double Bedroom, Twin Bedroom, and 'accessible' Single Bedroom. Also here are a fully-tiled Bathroom and a 'Wet Room'. The obvious room for a Cot is the Single Bedroom - it's not practical to have one in the Twin Bedroom (unless it's otherwise unoccupied) or in the Double Bedroom (unless its a small Travel Cot). Prior to our withdrawal from VisitEngland's National Accessible Scheme, Swift was accredited as applicable to Wheelchair Users holidaying in self-catering accommodation.
Approximately 400 metres from 'Mel House Cottages' is a 'Lottery-funded' wooden Play Area. Within 40 minutes drive of this part of North Yorkshire are attractions of interest to those with children which are simply too many to include here. Suffice it to say that it is possible to take a holiday here for 2 weeks and still not manage to do all that you and and your children would have liked to do!
Our own 'Water Garden' is separated from the remainder of the garden by a stone wall and fencing and the access to this area is via a gate with a combination padlock in use. Similarly, our 'Leisure Suite' is accessed via a door with a digital lock, the number being divulged only to adults. Parents need to be aware of the presence of our village pond which is unfenced.
