    Really lovely cottage in a very beautiful location. Very peaceful and a great place to relax. Helmsley, the nearby village was really nice. Lovely independant shops and nice places to eat. On the one occasion we needed to contact the owner the issue was dealt with promptly and to our satisfaction. Would highly recommend. Xx

    The cottage is beautiful and in a gorgeous location and the garden well maintained and spacious. The only downside is low headroom in places. Luckily we're not tall!! There are no amenities in the village but the scenery is fabulous and Rievaulx is peaceful and quiet. Visits to the abbey across the road and to the Rievaulx Terrace are definitely recommended. We had great weather and went on some lovely walks with the dog. Helmsley is only a five minute drive away with all the amenities that Rievaulx doesn't have. We preferred the 'Feathers' pub to the 'Royal Oak'. We had a wonderful week and will definitely go back and stay in Swiss Cottage again.

    This cottage looks idyllic and is set in a lovely picturesque area close to lovely walks and the amenities in nearby Helmsley. Unfortunately though many aspects of the interior do not reach the expected standard for a holiday cottage in this price bracket. Most of the kitchen equipment is broken in some way with several items unusable. Cracked and chipped crockery and dishes. Broken and dirty saucepans and frying pan. Overused plates and bowls that aren’t pleasant to eat from. Cheap broken plastic handled cutlery some covered in fluffy mould.

    Pretty cottage plenty of outside space, but inside no wardrobes only shelves in double room and two door hooks, very squashed. Overpriced for facilities available.

    Gorgeous fairy tale cottage in beautiful peaceful location. Helmsley is only a few minutes drive away and has everything you could need. The walk from the cottage to Helmsley on the Cleveland Way is fabulous - have lunch and then walk back. The Abbey is spectacular. How did they build something like that all those hundreds of years ago. It’s mind boggling. We love the cottage and Rievaulx itself and we will definitely be returning. Perfect place for getting away from the daily grind.
