Seafarer Cottage is not only your holiday home, it's ours too, and it's important to us that you love it as much as we do.
Combining charm and character with comfortable modern living, the cottage is perfect for couples and families alike. We know how important WiFi is, so there's good connectivity throughout the house. Upstairs the two double bedrooms are light and airy, with comfortable double beds and nice little touches, such as mirrors close to sockets. With ample storage and views over to Holy Island, the master bedroom is particularly lovely. There is a good-sized family bathroom, with bath and shower attachment, washbasin, WC and plenty of cupboards.
Downstairs, we particularly love the kitchen diner, and our own guests have commented on how much they've enjoyed spending time there. Whether you want to warm up a pizza, make cakes with the kids or cook a roast dinner, we've got everything you need. There's a fridge-freezer, dishwasher, washer-dryer, double oven and a microwave, so we hope you'll feel totally at home. There are ample pots and pans, crockery and cutlery, not forgetting plastic glasses for the little ones. The table seats 6, and there's a 32 inch TV too.
In the spacious hall, you'll find coat hooks and a shoe rack, placed close to the radiator so everything's nice and toasty. Off the hall there's a second bathroom, with a shower enclosure, basin, WC and storage cupboards. The water supply to the shower is hot and powerful, so a good shower is always guaranteed. Next door is the single bedroom, with drawers, shelf and hanging space.
The living room is cosy and comfortable, with two good sized settees, nest of tables, 42" Smart TV with HDMI and USB connectivity and a Blu-ray player.
Outside, there is ample parking on the gravel in front of the cottage, with a lot of the garden laid to lawn. There's a sunny paved patio area with a picnic table and a shady pergola, for those days when you want a cool spot to sit and relax.
We know how hard it is to go on holiday without your furry friends, so well-behaved dogs are welcome, although please be aware that the garden is not enclosed.
The area is perfect for visiting the myriad historic, natural and cultural wonders of Northumberland, but particularly that most special of places, Holy Island. My late parents lived there, and the cottage is named after dad's boat, Seafarer. We hope that you will enjoy the magic of the Island as we have done over the years.
As we don't live locally, we're unfortunately not in a position to offer welcome packs. However, the Lindisfarne Inn is just next door, where the food is good (and the Alnwick gin is even better.) There is a shop just a couple of minutes away, open until 10 pm, and Tesco, Asda, the Co-op and Morrison's are just 10 minutes up the A1 in Berwick.
We hope to welcome you to Seafarer Cottage soon.
