We had a great time in ‘Stornoway’ and Seahouses!

  • 5 of 5

We are very content with our holiday home ‘Stornoway’.

We really enjoy our stay there, the house is very well equiped, everything was fine!

We liked it very much that all places in Seahouses were on walking distance!

And, thanks for the good weather.

We visited he Farne Islands 3 times, we did a wonderful Sunset cruise along the islands, we visited Holy Island. The second trip to Inner Farne, with stormy weather, was very spectacular! But the Puffins were the best!

Perfect location for enjoying the area.

  • 4 of 5

Very well equipped house in an ideal location for the beach, village and other parts of Northumberland. Not the best of weather but the house was warm and comfortable with everything we needed. Seahouses has lots of places to eat and shop and its own smokehouse for Kippers and Salmon. Lovely walks along the beach.

Comfortable, well equipped and very well located cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Stornoway - Seahouses is really well located for most of the places we wanted to visit, and the cottage itself was everything we needed - spacious, warm, clean, well equipped and comfortable. Also very child-friendly. We loved it and hope to stay there again soon.

Beautifully presented and well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

Would highly recommend. The property is beautifully done , spacious and spotlessly clean. We were amazed at just how well equipped it was. The position is perfect for all seashouses has to offer and many other attractions on the Northumberland coast. If and when we return to seahouses we would certainly look to stay in this property again.
