Swallows Rest is a rural retreat in the beautiful Northumberland countryside. The contemporary holiday home sleeps six people in three bedrooms and is child and dog-friendly, making it a popular choice for a family self-catering holiday. There are scenic walks from the door, including nearby Thrunton Wood, and the area around Thrunton and Whittingham is also popular for cycling and mountain biking. You'll be inspired every day you wake up to the panoramic views from the holiday cottage, eager to get out and explore everything that makes Northumberland a unique and excellent choice for a holiday.
Thrunton is midway between Alnwick and Rothbury, a few miles from the Northumberland National Park and within 15-20 minutes of the Northumberland Coast. It's hard to imagine a better place for a holiday if you're a person who adores being outdoors with no one in sight. The number of castles and fortified buildings makes sense when considering how close you are to the Scottish border. Alnwick is one of the finest, with others including Bamburgh, Dunstaburgh, Chillingham, and the medieval riverside ruins of Edlingham. If you have a passion for history, then visit Hadrian's Wall and the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, the latter also appealing to wildlife watchers and photographers.
Spend a happy hour browsing in Barter Books in Alnwick, the biggest second-hand book shop in England, or pretending to play quidditch on the grounds of Alnwick Castle. Gallop along miles of pristine sand with the help of local stables, kayak along the coastline, or play a round of golf on a course overlooking the North Sea. Boat trips to see puffins and seals of the Farne Islands regularly leave from Seahouses, the waters of which are also a favourite with divers. If you time your trip to coincide with one of the region's many festivals, you can celebrate everything from food to stargazing.
Swallows Rest welcomes visitors all year round, with short breaks possible in spring, autumn and winter, depending on availability.
