Swallows Nest is wonderfully located close to everything that the historic village of Bamburgh offers; the iconic castle, lovely restaurants, cricket, golf, and tennis. From nearby Seahouses, about 3 miles away, you can have fishing trips, or sightseeing trips to the Farne Islands to see puffins, seals and seabirds a plenty. You can also use The Ocean Club private pool, gym and spa in Seahouses when you stay at Swallows Nest. Northumberland is a fascinating region with so much to see and explore, Harry Potters castle at Alnwick is close at hand for a day out too! Swallows Nest provides lots of games, dressing up clothes and toys for young children so there will always be something to occupy the little ones!

Beautiful cottage, well-equipped, spacious and with a treasure chest of toys for the children. Welcome cake and biscuits was a nice touch . Small gripe - the bed was a bit short for anyone over 6ft!
