The business is based in The Fisherman’s Kitchen in Seahouses complete with the original smokehouses, which have operated on this site since 1843. In fact, the site is even credited as being one of the possible places where in fact the modern “Kipper” was actually invented! Today Swallowfish employ the very same methods of smoking as were performed on this site all those years ago. They use traditional oak sawdust which has no additives, preservatives or colourings of any kind and let the natural flavours speak for themselves.
Coates Butchers supply locally sourced organic pork, dry-cured by their own fair hands
Now that we bake our own bread, it was important to us to find real local flour to use - and we've found a cracker! We're using Gilchester Organics' Stoneground Organic flours.

Way back in 1926 Nelson Clark decided to produce and sell fresh farm eggs. Being an old fashioned man he based the business upon good old fashion values - excellence, customer service and pride. These values are very much alive and well today and as Clarks continues to thrive they'd like to think that old Nelson would be proud of how his little business has remained true to his wishes. We at Dowfold House Bed and Breakfast are certainly big fans - really lovely free-range eggs
