About John Brierley
John & Katy bought the farm house and outbuildings in 2012. They converted the old stable and cart shed between 2013 to 2015 into a beautiful holiday cottage, using reclaimed and sustainable materials. A second holiday cottage is now planned. They live in the attached farm house and are available to welcome new guests and help out if needed.

Our stay at swallows nest
We rented this property as a family celebration trip for my mum and dad who are both turning 60 this year. It has honestly been the most magical few days. The location of the property is perfect, it’s set in the countryside and it’s so quiet and peaceful all of us have felt so chilled out. We have also visited some of the local hotspots such as bridlington and Beverley as well as berts pizzeria which is a must and the black swan pub quiz. We have had the best time and would encourage anyone to visit and stay at the swallows nest. We stayed as five adults and we all had space and didn’t feel like we were on top of each other, it was exactly what we where looking for.
Thank you for that lovely review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay.
Beautiful property and area
We had only booked a couple of days away and it was quite last minute, but this did not disappoint. The house was stunning and immaculate. John and Katy had provided a gorgeous hamper full of lots of yummy things which went down particularly well with the kids. We had not stayed in Yorkshire before and found it to be lovely. Bempton Cliffs was fantastic. We could have easily spent all our time at the house though, watching the wildlife in the garden! We saw a multitude of different birds, there were pheasants and rabbits outside our window in the morning, and a hedgehog next to the woodshed in the evening. Just a lovely little break, and a shame we couldn’t stay longer. Thank you for letting us stay here.
Ideal accommodation for us!
Immaculate accommodation in a lovely setting, would definitely stay again
Thank you James. it was good to see you again...hope to see you in the future.

Needs more that 5 stars!
Thank you so much John and Katy for your wonderful hospitality and helping to organise our surprise birthday weekend.
The “Cart Shed” is amazing; from the fresh eggs to the homemade Victoria sponge and the wonderful warm welcome. It’s so rare to stay anywhere that truly thinks of all the “Little Things” like washing-up liquid, and Milk in the fridge! So much better than any five-star hotel. We have loved every second of our stay here, watching the wild life and sitting by the real fire each night playing card games and late-night stargazing. Everything here was immaculate, and we have absolutely made ourselves at home this weekend. It has been so peaceful and we felt like the only people for miles, though John and Katy were only a text message away if we needed them.
We tried Harpers Fish and Chip shop on their recommendation which was lovely! Though, top tip, a small is definitely more than enough. We also had Afternoon Tea at Tickton Grange Hotel which we would highly recommend.
We will absolutely be telling all our friends and family about Swallows Nest and we hope to be back in years to come!
Thank you again
Thank you so much for this lovely review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your birthday celebrations. Thank you for leaving the Cart Shed so clean and tidy; you would be welcome back any time!
Peaceful and Relaxing
The Cart Shed exceeded all expectations. The owners were very friendly and kept us supplied with fresh eggs. Watching the birds feeding from the garden was a delight. We were lucky to see deer right outside our bedroom window. Would highly recommend.
Thank you so much for this super review, we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. We enjoyed meeting you, your family and your lovely little dog; we hope to see you again in the future.
