Swallows Nest is a wonderful cottage and in a small hamlet not too far from a village. Having been there 15 times already, I can honestly say it is a real 'home from home' cottage. The facilities are suitable for able bodied and disabled people with the exception of the bathroom off the twin room.
The accommodation has a master bedroom at one end with a walk-in shower from it. From here to the sitting room with TV, DVD player and radio, books and games for children. The kitchen is equipped with cooker and hob, fridge freezer, microwave, washing machine and plenty crockery for cooking meals. Onto the twin room with single beds and from here, down a few steps into the bathroom. The cottage is converted farm outbuildings and has been done to a very high standard maintaining the original external features. There is a small garden with barbecue facilities. The cottage is well maintained and kept to a very high standard of cleanliness and serviceability. Any issues are quickly resolved by your very amenable hosts, Alison and Keith.
Its location is in a quiet valley and ideally suited for local walks. Nearby is Hamsterley Forest with walking and cycling trails and picnic sites. Ideally situated for trips to many varied attractions both near and further.
Having stayed so many times, I think it goes without saying that I would highly recommend this as a good get-away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
