Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Learn more about our review moderation.

About the neighbourhood
The village of Slaithwaite boasts of places well worth a visit, from the Handmade Bakery to the Green Valley Grocer (ideal to stock up on essentials ahead of a family meal in the cottage). There are plenty of places to pick up great value food and drink, including Aldi and the Co-op, as well as a post office, swimming pool and leisure centre and a train station in the village centre offering convenient links to the surrounding area. Here are some other places worth a visit in the village and surrounding area. The Emporium/The Gallery - Vintage clothes and finds along with a Gallery displaying local work. Located in the village centre. Cobweb - Offering beautiful Antiques and reconditioned furniture along with gifts for every occasion. Handmade bakery - Along the canal side, a artisan b...
Getting around
Swallows Nest is only a few minuets drive from the village centre. If venturing further afield we are less than 10 minuets from the M62. You can drive in the opposite direction and be in Derbyshire within 30 minuets. If you are coming by train the station is in the village and there are taxis available. Should you wish to walk the uphill walk is very scenic (much faster back down).
