Everything we needed was provided and we were impressed with the smart tv so we could watch Netflix! Close to all of the amenities in Seahouses and less than a ten minute walk to the harbour or the lovely stretch of beach that runs along to Bamburgh.

We were amazed and delighted by this wonderful cottage. We had 10 people in the main cottage and 6 in the lodge but we used the cottage's cozy kitchen as our main base, the aga was fantastic for keeping us warm on a cold winter weekend. There's plenty of space in the cottage yet it still manged to feel snug and cozy. The games room was amazing and all ages were catered for. The cottage had everything we needed you can tell a lot of thought has gone into furnishing it, from dog beds to cricket sets there wasn't anything missing. The welcome gift of a homemade cake, bottle of wine and doggy treats was a lovely touch. We can't wait to go back.
