Activities such as Golf, water sports- diving school at Seahouses, Boat trips to farne Islands, surfing and kite surfing (which can be seen from lounge window as well!!) wind surfing and sailing. Walking the coastal paths (some have pubs at end like Beadnell to Newton by the sea) is a joy any time of year, or up the Cheviot Hills the backdrop to the coast. Cycling is great along the quiet roads, a short cycle away it is one of the most beautiful beaches along the coast where you can be the only one there! It is packed with shells, take a picnic it is worth it! Bird watching from the lounge window becomes natural, you can not wait to wake up and see if tide is in or out! Budle Bay is a RSPB nature reserve so you see many wonderful birds and animals, a telescope & binoculars are provided. An information pack is in apartment full of ideas of things to do and see.

Choose this apartment with a Jetty Cottage!!: Have an apartment with that something extra special!! Swan Bay is one of only three properties to have a 'Jetty Cottage', its a place for picnics, barbecues, fun and relaxation. I have provided games for children to play outside ! You will have your own chairs and table (not just the communal ones) binoculars & tea and coffee making facilities. You can have a candle lit supper or just sit back and enjoy a glass of wine in peace. All our guests have commented that this made staying at our apartment that bit special!

JETTY COTTAGE GAMES ROOM Table football, Pool / Snooker etc just think you and your children will have another great facility for your holiday!

Perfect holiday home :)

  • 5 of 5

I took my three children Nd small dog here and we had an amazing time.

Firstly the apartment is perfect. Kitchen is so well equipped, much more so than any other holiday home we have stayed in. There is even a small amount of coffee, tea and milk on arrival, and even cooking oil, which helps so much.

The views are breathtaking and we often found ourselves just staring out of the window watching the tide come in and go out again.

The area is lovely, but very quiet, so no shops within walking distance. We generally shopped at the Co-op in Seahouses, which is also a fantastic place to get your fish and chips!

Bamburgh is beautiful (just five mins down the road) and the beach there is stunning. We walked the dog there every morning and usually only saw one or two other people. I think our dog thought it was all his!

Some fab rock pools for kids on a low tide. We spent ages looking through them all.

So overall we had the best time and would definitely recommend the apartment, and the area :)

Idyllic Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from a long weekend at Swan Bay and had the most pleasant time.

Located about 2 miles from Bamburgh itself, the Mill buildings are in excellent condition and perfect location for a good beach walk to Bamburgh taking in the most amazing views and sinking sand!

Apartment itself was kitted out with everything 6 girls needed for a long weekend - couldn't fault the facilties and added extras that were left for us (maybe a few more ice trays neeeded ;-))

The apartment was spotless, very clean and well maintained, all towels and bed linen provided for us.

Jetty house provided excellent location for a BBQ and late night chats with wine and friends. Star gazing and shooting stars was an added bonus!

Would recommed to all and will definately come back for a visit!

Swan Bay, Waren Mill, Northumbria

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully appointed and elegant apartment tastefully decorated with every possible home comfort thought of. We had a fabulous long weekend here - the scenery is wonderful. A trip round the Farne Islands, Bamburgh Castle, and fish & chips at the harbour in nearby Seahouses, along with beach walks, great local food, and good cycling routes made this our perfect getaway. The view from the appartment and the Jetty Cottage added the finishing touches - not to mention the brilliant weather and the North Sea looking like the Med and warm enough for my (very hardy!) son to swim in! Thanks Tracy.

I just wanted to say that I had a wonderful stay in your superb apartment, thank you. It was so relaxing and the icing on the cake was the use of the jetty cottage!

I am really looking forward to staying again in the very near future.

Last minute booking

  • 4 of 5

My father's ill health meant I couldn't book in advance so was looking for a last minute booking. The owner responded promptly by email and telephone, agreeing to a 3 day booking-all handled very efficiently.

The views from the apartment are stunning and really relaxing for our rather stressed family.

The apartment itself is spacious and well furnished, though the dining furniture is starting to show its age.

There's plenty of good walking and the Farne islands were fantastic - our trip was timed perfectly for the puffins. Also visited Anwick gardens which were a bit of a disappointment; we were expecting more than there was - perhaps we have been mis-lead by all the publicity.

Games Room with pool, table football etc great fun!

Occupying an idyllic location on the banks of Budle Bay, the former buildings of historic Waren Mill (built by the Normans and believed to date back some 900 years) have been converted to provide a collection of unique, high quality, apartments. Magnificent uninterrupted views can be admired over the bay and out towards the sea and Lindisfarne Island (Holy Island). Standing in an area of outstanding natural beauty, Waren Mill forms an ideal base for both nature lovers and bird watchers,with Lindisfarne Nature Reserve nearby. Countless Castles and stately homes beg exploration and the village of Bamburgh with its stunning Castle and village green lined with 18th century cottages is close at hand. Alnwick and its spectacular gardens are close by, whilst Scotland is only a few miles north of the lovely historic Berwick upon Tweed.The River Tweed provides some of the best salmon fishing waters in the country. Coastal golf courses, beautiful beaches, boat trips to see seals and quaint pubs

Other Activities: boat trips to Farne Islands and Holy Island, Castle's and Alnwick Gardens
