Overall The Old Byre was a nice place to stay, clean, comfortable & had what we needed. The location was ideal for the coast & attractions in the area. The property does have other properties immediately around it so not ideal if you want to be secluded but it is quiet. Can be tight getting in & out of the gate when other vehicles are parked close Read moreby. The gate has to be opened & closed behind you every time you go out. Hide

We love this cottage and have been visiting here for a number of years. A good location with easy access around the area. The cottage is looking a little tired but a small investment will bring it back up to its original standard from a few years ago.

We had a great time. The cottage was spacious, well equipped and in a great location. We had 3 generations staying together and it was perfect for all with some particularly good toys to entertain the children. We would definitely stay again.

The Old Byre is in a great location. Quiet. Beautifully kept. Garden pleasant and even the lawn was freshly cut prior to our arrival. The Cottage was all spic and span when we arrived. Smelt fresh and clean. Kitchen very clean and cooker all lined with foil ready for use (although we didn't actually use it on this occasion )

The Old Byre is a lovely, well-equipped cottage which is well situated for exploring the area and great for the wonderful beach at Bamburgh. We loved the gardens and cream tea at Howick Hall, fabulous food at the Apple Inn at Lucker, exploring Cragside and the castle and gardens at Alnwick.

The Old Byre is a spacious well equipped cottage that was ideal for a family group of three generations. Plenty of toys and books to occupy the children aged five and two. Our daughter especially enjoyed the play kitchen! Within easy access of all local attractions. We will definitely return in the future.

The cottage was amazing, we staying with family who visited from Australia for our mothers 70's Birthday. Everyone had a fantastic weekend and enjoyed Seahouses and found a beautiful spot at Newton By The Sea. We all found the facilities at the cottage amazing and had everything we needed to make our stay so special.

Location

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
