Lovely place to stay which is very well thought out, comfortable and warm in all weathers. The location is very convenient for exploring the coastal areas of Northumberland. The village has a good pub which is busy in the early evenings for meals (book ahead) but lacks a shop of any sort so provisions will need to be taken for arrival.

The Signal Box is small but perfectly formed. Maybe too small for a couple and their dog (as we were) if the weather had prevented us from venturing outside.

Perfect for a young couple getting away for the weekend. Great base for us and the dog. All main attractions are a short drive away. The pub down the road is very good for food.

Lovely, well presented little hide-away that was the perfect base for our relaxing long-weekend in beautiful Northumberland.

The area it is situated in is stunning and dining out locally is a particular treat.

We stayed at The Signalbox just before Christmas and had a fantastic week. The owners had thought of absolutely everything and we were delighted with the incredibly well-stocked kitchen, along with books, games, DVDs, toiletries and a welcome hot chocolate there were even bowls and treats for the dogs! We couldnt have asked for anything more. EverRead moreything in The Signal Box is very high quality and no expense has been spared. The en suite shower-room is luxurious and stylish, and the bed very comfortable with a good quality mattress. The garden is completely secure and enclosed, with a barbecue and outside seating, and a stunning Northumberland view from the balcony. The location is perfect for exploring the county, and there is a pub in the village within a very short walk which serves meals. The Signal Box is a comfortable, relaxing home-from-home and we hope to spend many more holidays in this superb accommodation. Hide

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.
