Swallow Dean




Swallow Dean’s bedroom view is breath-taking, with Beadnell Bay and its famous sandy beach in the distance, and cattle and sheep grazing in the organic fields nearby.   This one-bedroom cottage is perfect for a very peaceful, rural retreat mid-way between Bamburgh and Alnwick, 2 miles from the Northumberland heritage coast.

The hugely generous space is warm, very comfortable and full of beautiful touches.  The underfloor heating is generated by the biomass boilers, fuelled by woodchip from the surrounding Fallodon estate woods.  The interior space is very light and bright and the floor to ceiling French windows open onto a terrace with wooden furniture, facing south-east.

The welcoming open-plan living area has an excellent Clearview stove and unlimited hardwood logs, and plenty of seating for friends to drop in or for guests to stretch out and read one of the excellent books provided.
