Swallow Lodge sits amongst a small cluster of similar style log properties, close to Druridge Bay Country Park, where there is a nature sanctuary with many water sports available on Ladyburn Lake. Druridge Bay has rolling sand dunes which are ideal for those who wish to indulge in the simple pleasure of walking barefoot in the sand, inhale the invigorating sea air and watching the waves lapping against its beautiful seashore. Swallow Lodge is positioned on the fringe of Hadston and provides a quintessential holiday retreat for couples to give an excellent base to explore the 20 miles of Heritage Coastline, a region which is proud to have been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The traditional fishing village of Amble, known locally as ’the friendliest port’ is only 3 miles north where fishing and boat trips to Coquet Island can be arranged. 9 miles south is the ancient market town of Morpeth, where the river Wansbeck winds its way behind the town’s shopping area which offers a wide range of facilities. Alnwick Castle (used as the location of Harry Potter’s Hogwarts) has outstanding gardens created by the Duchess of Northumberland, which includes a lovely woodland walk, a grand cascade waterfall and a restaurant within the largest tree house in Europe. Alnwick can be found by taking the beautiful coastal road heading north from the lodge.
