“Spacious, ideal location, perfectly thought out.”
Reviewed July 28, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Rarely does a holiday house surpass its photos/description but Swallows Nest is ideal. We have 4 children from 3-9 and have been to some beautiful houses in beautiful places but this is probably the most 'mother friendly' house I have been to. Thanks so much!

“Perfect Cottage by the Sea”
Reviewed July 9, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Loved the cottage and amenities. 5 min walk over the dunes to one of the best beaches I have ever seen. Also only half mile walk to Bamburgh Castle and village. Seahouses just 3 miles away for groceries and souveniers. Our favorite restaurant was The Mizen Head for the fresh local seafood. Thanks Jo for maintaining such a lovely cottage! Even had good weather, perfect family holiday.

“A beautiful house with wonderful beach location”

Swallows Nest was a perfect place for old friends reunion. The house is just lovely, It ticked every box for a group wanting to relax -a great kitchen and lots of room for all eight adults . . The village and beach at Bamburgh is on the doorstep . I would recommend wholeheartedly for families or group of friends wanting to experience the beauty of Northumberland .
