  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the owner was extremely friendly and accommodated a later check in."

    The pod was a good size for a couple and a perfect staging area for the local area. It was very private and quiet and felt very safe. It is our first time staying in a pod and would highly recommend this one. We couldn’t fault the experience, the only small improvement would be the ability to turn the wall light at the bed on and off independently of the wall light in the living area (one person staying up a bit later than the other), but this is a minor thing and we would definitely return in the future!

  • "We totally fell in love with Northumberland and our stay in Fern went a long way towards making our holiday one of our best."

    The pod was very well apportioned, very comfortable and located in a beautiful setting. Whilst the pod was ingeniously designed and decorated in a tasteful manner, we did find getting into and out of bed tricky. If you have mobility issues this is something you might want to consider. We will definitely be coming back

About the location


Alnwick 6 miles, Morpeth 12 miles.

The delightful village of Swarland is set in rural Northumberland, between Morpeth to the south and Alnwick to the north. The village has Nelsons, situated in the sports hall, which is open seven days a week, serving excellent coffee and meals, a children’s play area and tennis courts. 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. Just 10 minutes’ drive to the west is the National Trust’s Cragside House and Gardens. Altogether a perfect location for exploring Northumberland and its stunning Heritage Coastline.
