The cottage was fabulous, was in a fantastic central location, had excellent facilities, was immaculate inside and was such a lovely relaxing base for our holiday. Really appreciated the milk and wine in the fridge on arrival, was a lovely touch. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely recommend to our family and friends.

Brilliant location and views over the harbour and beyond. Lovely comfy beds and same brilliant view from the master bedroom ( Spiral staircase is steep!). Loads of crockery, cutlery and glassware. Masses of DVDs to keep children occupied. Children will enjoy being able to sprawl on the chairs/ settees - being a more mature group we needed to rearraRead morenge the cushions to sit a bit more upright. Parked at the top to unload and moved to outside garage for rest of stay. Excellent location. Hide

A fabulous cottage, well equipped with everything that you need. The location is excellent with an easy walk to shops and restaurants. The view from the cottage of the harbour and the sea is stunning so much so that we found it difficult at times to actually leave the cottage for a day out. If you are looking for somewhere to spend a peaceful relaxRead moreing time away then this is certainly the place to be, cant wait to return. Thank you Hide

The view from the balcony is epic and Watchman's Cove is a lovely cottage to stay in for a holiday. The location is top notch and we (a family of 4 with 2 late teens children) all had a wonderful time in Seahouses. The bedrooms and living area are comfortable and relaxing. The cottage was equipped with everything we needed.

Watch mans cove was brilliantly located overlooking the ever changing harbour. While we were there we had to endure everything that the North East coast could throw at us, storms, wind, rain and sunshine and the view over the harbour kept us entertained. The walks to Bamburgh and Beadnell were great for getting some exercise.

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.
