Excellent location - few minutes walk to the beach, coastal path. shops and restaurants. Shell Cottage has a small kitchen but fine to prepare meals. It has a large fridge freezer which was very good when self catering. The wine rack was appreciated ! The beds were comfy- linen was of good quality. The dining table was rather cramped if 4 people siRead moret at it. Some hooks in the the cupboard under the stairs would be good to hang the peg rack/ironing board. The 1 hour extra heating option convenient. Hide

A wonderfully comfy, clean and well equipped house. The bed is so lovely to sleep in and the sofas to sit on. The beach is only a few minutes walk away. There is a Co-op shop in Seahouses, which is also a walkable distance. Bamburgh is only about 10 minutes drive. We definitely hope to return.

This was my second visit to Shell Cottage and I will be there again because it is in the perfect spot for walking the dog on the coast path and over the golf course, It is also just a short walk into Seahouses. The cottage is well presented and the furniture and fittings are tasteful and good quality. There is even an induction hob.
