  • Marianne

    “Jacqui and Paul (and Jet, the dog) could not have been friendlier or more welcoming.”

    Sharing the garden with them was not a bit problematic - before I got there I thought it might be. Abundant walks for me and my dog; both locally and farther afield. A charming area and well worth a visit.

The property

Amble 3.6 miles. A lovely couple’s retreat resting in the village of Hadston, south of Amble, Swallow Lodge is ideal for exploring the coast and countryside of Northumberland. Be welcomed into a tastefully furnished open-plan living area, where large windows and patio doors allow in seas of light, where views of the garden can be enjoyed from the sitting area, an ideal spot for curling up with a coffee and a good book. Cook up a storm in a contemporary kitchen, housing many great amenities to assist in creating a romantic meal for two, and whilst the laundry room takes care of your sandy clothes, enjoy your meal at the dining area. Freshen up in a ground-floor shower room with eye-catching sparkly walls, or a charming little bathroom with wooden ceilings and a bath, ideal for a soak amongst the bubbles. The double bedroom is a bubble of relaxation, with pine ceilings, a small library, a smart TV for reclining in bed as you catch up on your favourite shows, and views over the rear garden and the countryside beyond. Make the most of the beautiful garden, boasting three large ponds, many shrubs and seating areas, making it ideal for an alfresco affair. Hadston has local shops, and a little further away you can find a pub. Close to the property you will find a walk through the woodlands and countryside, leading down to Druidge Bay Country Park, with the Stepping Stones and walks around the lake, a great spot for birdwatching, as well as East Chevington Bay, a lovely sandy beach ideal for watersports and strolls along the shore with your other half. From here, discover Hauxley Wildlife Centre and beach, and beyond that, the bustling seaside town of Amble, where there is a picturesque harbour, piers where you can enjoy an ice cream with a view of the coast and many independent shops, tasty eateries, and riverside walks. Beside Amble rests the historic town of Warkworth, where there is a historic Hermitage and the impressive Warkworth Castle, and beyond this there is the market town of Alnwick with its museum, gardens and castle shown in the Harry Potter films, Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and Northumberland Zoo. There is something for everyone with a stay at the quaint Swallow Lodge.

About the location

AMBLE

Warkworth 1 mile; Alnmouth 4 miles.

The bustling little seaport of Amble is situated at the mouth of the River Coquet and is an ideal place for exploring Northumberland. Historically a centre for boatbuilding, Amble offers a marina, a harbour, sandy beaches and coastal walks to the bird sanctuary at Hauxley and country park at Druridge Bay. Large fishing boats moor along the harbour wall and land a variety of fish, prawns, crabs and lobsters. There is a fish centre on the side of the harbour that is now primarily a shell fish hatchery to re-stock levels of lobster and other shell fish, this sells local fish and is open to the public. A mile south of Amble is Coquet Island, an RSPB reserve with a large population of terns, puffins and eider ducks and boat trips around the island can be arranged. The pretty coastal villages of Alnmouth and Craster and numerous superb beaches are only a short drive away, whilst picturesque Warkworth with its castle, charming Alnwick with its castle and award-winning gardens, and the National Trust’s Wallington Hall and Cragside are all within easy reach.

Please note that the property can only accommodate a Saturday change over day unless discussed prior to booking.
