Swallow Cottage

openCountrysideSwallowSwallow Cottage has a homely feel and provides flexible accommodation for up to five people. Situated at the end of a terrace of four, single-storey farm labourers’ cottages, Swallow Cottage has been renovated for ease and relaxation with an open, spacious living area to enjoy.  There are three bedrooms which are furnished with beautiful wooden furniture and designed to be flexible for your needs. You will find that Swallow Cottage offers the perfect setting for families, couples and groups of friends to stay.  It can be booked with the adjacent Skylark cottage.

This special location is a haven for peace , tranquillity and wildlife. You can begin your day looking out onto the nearby Kyloe hills, bathed in morning light whilst listening to a stunning chorus of birdsong.  The cottage provides the ideal base for exploration and adventure, with a variety of walks from the doorstep. Its location means it is perfectly positioned for the stunning Northumberland coastline, castles and countryside. As evening draws in, enjoy a glass of wine in front of a roaring wood burning stove; a starlit walk along the country lanes or take advantage of the opportunity to toast marshmallows round a campfire in the paddock.
