'Mallard' sleeps 6 in 3 bedrooms, 5 beds. It is a tastefully pine-furnished two-storey Cottage, the ground floor being open plan with a spacious Sitting Room with Freeview TV, DVD Player and a wood-burning stove set in a stone fireplace in one corner. There's also free fibre-optic WiFi. A fire-guard is, of course, available upon request. The fully-fitted Kitchen is separated from the Dining Area by a peninsula unit with cupboards under. The property has 3 cosy Bedrooms. Upstairs is a Double and a Twin Bedroom plus a small Bathroom whilst downstairs is a further (wheelchair accessible) Twin Bedroom next to a Wet Room with appropriate grab rails, etc. to ensure that it is accessible to a wheelchair user. A cot can be placed in both the Double Bedroom upstairs and the Twin Bedroom downstairs. Prior to our withdrawal from VisitEngland's National Accessible Scheme, Swift was accredited as suitable for full-time Wheelchair Users.
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.
