This detached, period farmhouse near Thorne, between Doncaster and Goole can sleep seventeen people in eight bedrooms.

Swallows Farm is a wonderful, detached period farmhouse situated in glorious South Yorkshire countryside, on the outskirts of the village of Sykehouse. The cottage offers eight bedrooms set over three floors, including a double room with a shower and basin, three twin rooms, a family room with a double and a single bed and en en-suite bathroom, an adult bunks room, two double rooms on the second floor and a single bed on the large second floor landing. There is a first floor family bathroom with a roll-top bath and a ground floor bathroom. There is also a kitchen with a dining area and two sitting rooms with woodburning stoves. Outside, there is ample off road parking, a garden to the front and side of the cottage with furniture and a hot tub. Swallows Farm is a wonderful base for friends and families exploring the south of Yorkshire, all year round.


The house was everything we expected- large enough to fit us all and with a lovely big kitchen we could all eat together and have such a fun time. The garden and fields around were perfect for us to play games and the hot tub an ideal spot to relax in the evenings. Sean and Anita couldn't have been more welcoming as we filled this house with friends. Sean offered to help with everything, and told some great stories! They helped us with local taxis when we had left it too late to book and really made our stay.

Fifteen of us have just returned from a fantastic weekend stay at Swallows Farm to celebrate Mum and Dads 60th. Ideal cottage for this or any other celebration or family/friends gathering. Loved the big dining area where all of us could eat, drink and chat together in addition to playing board games into the wee small hours. All beds are very comfortable with clean good quality bedding. The cottage has a low-key, homely feel and has all the facilities you'd expect plus the added bonus of the hot tub. Owners Shaun and Anita are friendly, helpful and welcoming. All in all a very relaxed stay. Thank you.

The cottage was well presented and great for our family reunion. We had a wonderful weekend. There is a large garden which is fully enclosed so worked for us with 2 dogs and a small energetic boy!

12 of us (19-20 year olds) shared the house for a week and couldn't have had a better time, The owners were very friendly, and we always ended up chatting when they came to top up the chemicals in the hot tub. The hot tub was excellent, there was a problem with a filter in the middle of our stay, but it was fixed and filters replaced within hours of us raising a concern. The rooms were very large and clean, the pictures don't do justice to some of the bedrooms. The massive kitchen meant there was never a fight over counter space when making breakfast and a large barbecue in the garden to cook on in the evening. Overall swallows farm (or manor farm, as it appears on the map) was one of the best holiday locations we have stayed in.

Our 16 fit very nicely into the accomdation! Sean (caretaker) was very helpful and was able to fufill any requests we had. Farmhouse was very good value for money and ticked all of our boxes. would recommend for anyone who wanted to get a large group together without breaking the bank. *** The only downside was that we found out later in our stay was that the farm was housing Alpacas and not Llamas!!! We couldn't rename our trip to alpackapalooza because that would be silly! So unfortunately that was our only complaint... But then most people aren't as finicky as we are! :)
