Attractions include: Beamish Open Air Museum, Newcastle, Gateshead Metro Centre, Hamsterley Forest., Bowes Museum and too many others to mention.

Barnard Castle

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.

“Lovely rural location, comfy well equipped cottage.”

Reviewed 18 Jan 2016

This was our second stay at Swallows Nest which kind of says it all. Everything we were looking for, peaceful, comfy and well equipped. The cottage has a very homely feel. The owners were friendly, helpful and ensured our stay went smoothly. We would definitely stay for a third time, maybe a summer break next time.

Thank you so much for your lovely review of Swallows Nest. We are really glad that you enjoyed your return visit to us and look forward to seeing you again for a third time. A summer stay would be great as you will get to see our ever changing countryside in a different season. You'll be surprised at how different each time of year can be and I look forward to being able to tell you where all of the best places are that you haven't had a chance to go to yet. Many thanks again, Alison

“Great play to stay.”

Reviewed 7 Apr 2014

Another great stay - as a permanent wheelchair user it is often difficult to find suitable accommodation - Swallows Nest hits the spot and has everything I need for a comfortable stay. Nothing is too much trouble for Alison to sort out if any problem occurs. Lovely farmhouse accommodation in a great area (lots to see and do). Added bonus of being on a working farm.

Thanks so much for your lovely review. We try very hard to ensure that all guests including those with a disability have a super holiday here on the farm. We are very much looking forward to seeing you again very soon. Thanks again. Alison
