The Durham Dales is a peaceful and tranquil landscape of moors and hills, valleys and meandering rivers, dotted with picturesque villages and market towns. Part of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty the Durham Dales truly is a special place and the perfect choice for your next holiday of exploration.
If you would like to look slightly further afield and things to see and do then the historic city of Durham is only 30 minutes away and The Lake District only slightly further at 45 minutes.
Attractions include: Beamish Open Air Museum, Newcastle, Gateshead Metro Centre, Hamsterley Forest., Bowes Museum and too many others to mention.
Swallows Nest is ideally situated to explore all of Barnard Castle and Bishop Auckland. It is situated close to the picturesque village of Cockfield and right on the verge of Cockfield Fell, Britain's largest protected common land area. It was once home to hundreds of miners but is now full of wildlife with curlews, buzzards and the occasional kestrel.
Located close to Hamsterley Forest, part of the Dark Skies initiative, the farm is also cloaked in darkness during the winter evenings. This makes it ideal for stargazing.
