Scrupulously clean on arrival. Cottage has everything you need. Very warm and cosy. The garden and conservatory were delightful for enjoying the afternoon sunshine. A 10 minute walk into town with lots of places to eat and drink. Lovely location and just across the road and golf course to pick up the coastal path. Would definitely recommend

A lovely comfortable and well-equipped cottage. Metal spiral staircase would be too tricky for the old and infirm, and small children unless helped. Easy access (across the road and a short walk across golf course) to the beach; on edge of the village.

This cottage was perfect for us. Situated just across the road from the golf course, a nice walk through there to the large dog friendly beach. It had a safe enclosed garden for our dog. The cottage was spacious & comfortable for 4 and only a 10 min walk into the centre of Seahouses. We would definitely return.

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.
