Pleasant characterful cottage, cosy in the evenings, especially with the log burner. In a quiet street close to the harbour and shops, pubs etc.

Cosy well equipped cottage within easy walking distance of the shops, eateries and bus routes. Lots to see and do in the area.

Reviewed by Paul 24th August 2019

This is a very well equipped and cosy cottage which has the valued little extra touches of ample torches, books and items to make you feel at home. The central heating is excellent for chillier days and a wood burner is at hand in the lounge. The only recommendation would be for an en suite W.C in the main bedroom, which is massive. As there is no Read morefacility upstairs its a long trip to use the loo in the middle of the night. Hide

Very steep stairs could be difficult for some. Bit of a struggle to get a large suitcase up. Parking was very handy. Very close to the harbour. Well equipped cottage. Lovely large double bedroom, bed a bit firm for our liking.

Reviewed by Gerard 15th September 2018

This was a well presented cottage and equipped with everything required for an enjoyable stay. An ideal location with parking a valuable bonus. Perhaps not best suited for those with mobility considerations due to the location of the bathroom and layout of the stairs.

Thank you for letting us stay here. Bunk bed was AMAZINGLY comfy & I loved that we got fishing nets. I also loved that we had internet & I could use my ipad.

Popular Seahouses, known to many as ‘the village by the sea', is the ideal location for a seaside holiday or short break in Northumberland. This picturesque coastal village is an excellent base from which to explore the whole of the Northumberland Coast and countryside.

Famed for its picturesque harbour and panoramic views of the spectacular Farne Islands, the bustling fishing village of Seahouses features everything you would expect from a seaside holiday and more. All the beaches in the area are dog-friendly, while there is also a huge range of spectacular wildlife and sea life waiting to be sighted. For the adventurous, there are breath-taking coastal paths to trek or scuba diving to enjoy and for those interested in local history, there is a broad spectrum of historical landmarks to discover nearby including the magnificent castles of Bamburgh and Alnwick.

There are boats trips taking visitors to see the spectacular wildlife habitats on the Farne Islands all year round. But if you’d rather stay on land there is Bamburgh Castle Golf Club, one of the most scenic golf courses in Britain, or guided walking tours of the beautiful coast to indulge in. Helping to maintain the character of the village, the variety of independent shops provides a unique shopping experience as well as a great opportunity to get your hands on some delicious local produce.
