Places to see nearby:

Some of the cleanest and emptiest beaches in England can be found on Northumberland's spectacular Heritage Coastline; 25 miles of rocky coves and golden sands that remain almost deserted even during the summer months. The beach at nearby Bamburgh is well worth a visit at any time of the year whether for walking, kite-surfing, or sandcastle building. From nearby Seahouses, take a tour to the Farne Islands, to see the resident colonies of Grey Seals and an impressive array of birdlife including Puffins.

Peaceful & beautiful

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I spent a wonderful long weekend at Swallowtails it was so peaceful & we had a much needed rest & recuperation. The accommodation was beautiful & had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. There was a welcome tray on our arrival which is always appreciated & we were offered free access to a local spa pool where I also had a spa treatment. Carol was lovely & we are so looking forward to another visit. Highly recommended.
