This small white-washed traditional fisherman’s cottage is an ideal coastal getaway for couples visiting Northumberland.
Situated in a quiet corner of Seahouses, the cottage is a short walk from the villages harbour front, beaches, shops, restaurants and cafes and is perfect for those wishing to just relax or as a base for exploring Northumberland and the Scottish Borders.
Once you have finished exploring the village you can take a boat trip to the spectacular Farne Islands to spot the resident puffins and grey seals or set out on foot to follow the coastal path north to picturesque village of Bamburgh. In Bamburgh you can visit the magnificent castle, once home to the Kings of Northumbria, the RNLI Grace Darling Museum or just explore the village and its stunning beach, Bamburgh also has a number of lovely shops, pubs, restaurants and tearooms, a particular favourite is the Copper Kettle which is highly recommended.
Also within easy reach are the dramatic castles at Alnwick, Dunstanburgh and Warkworth, the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, the glorious beaches at Beadnell, Embleton and Alnmouth and perhaps for the more adventurous, the Simonside and Cheviot Hills. A little further afield, amongst other places to visit are the lovely villages of Rothbury, home to stunning Cragside Hall and grounds, and Kelso, home to the ruined abbey and Floors Castle.
Having been refurbished for the 2020 season, this charming cottage is cosy and welcoming with a light and airy feel throughout and retains many of its original features.
The kitchen is compact but well-equipped with everything you should need for your stay, including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge and washing machine. The tastefully furnished lounge/diner provides comfortable seating and lighting, dining table and chairs, Freeview TV and DVD player, a selection of DVDs and books and a newly installed traditional wood burning stove set in the original fireplace and on a natural slate hearth. This welcoming room is ideal to relax in after a long day exploring.
Narrow stairs lead to the first floor and the cosy double bedroom which features the original wooden flooring (with rug), new bedroom furniture with ample storage and a newly refurbished fully tiled en-suite bathroom.
The property comes with a small gated area at the front.
