The website pictures are great but we were still surprised just how spacious and well designed the property was. The living area is open planned with lots of light particularly from the huge picture window looking out to the sea. In the evening though was very cosy with log fire burning. The kitchen was probably the most well equipped I've ever known in a holiday rental and was so useful to have the separate utility room to wash sandy clothes. Good sized bedrooms and lovely bathrooms for 3 couples but would be great for families too especially with the brilliant rumpus room. The location was perfect for lovely walks on the beach and easy drives to Seahouses and surrounding areas. Our hosts were easy to reach for any questions and couldn't be more helpful and accommodating. Can't recommend this property highly enough. Thanks Lucinda and Guy for such a relaxing and wonderful stay.

Just across the road,over the golf course,there is a public footpath to a lovely little beach.Our little dog was in heaven,long walks over lots of different beaches and a fire to sleep in front of when we got back.A lovely welcoming touch was that the fires were laid ready to just put a match to when we arrived! Instantly felt relaxed. Very well equipped and a walk up to Seahouses if you fancy a takeaway or eating out. Highly recommended .
