It is just 8 miles from Alnwick, with its castle and garden, which features Europe's largest cascading water feature, an enormous tree house, a rose garden and an ornamental walled garden.
The castle is also famous as the setting for Hogwarts School featured in the Harry Potter films.
Alnwick offers a good selection of shops, pubs and places to eat.
There is plenty to see and do near to Swarland, with miles of golden sandy beaches, numerous castles and boat trips to the famous Farne Islands all available nearby.
Brinkburn Priory is a pleasant drive away, a restored Augustinian Priory in a most lovely setting beside the River Coquet.

Altogether a perfect location for exploring Northumberland and its stunning Heritage Coastline..
