Puffin Place is a great little holiday hideaway within the historic conservation area of Seahouses. Its location is right in the heart of the former fish smokeries and traditional fishing cottages. Puffin Place has been tastefully converted and modernised from being part of the adjacent smokery into a comfortable and well equipped holiday home. The cottage is in a peaceful location but just a minute's walk from the busy harbour and the Northumbrian Coastal Path passes the end of the road just 70 yards away. This holiday home from home has a warm and inviting feel, is equipped to a high standard and is perfectly suited for either couples or small families or groups.
The property is located within a 2 minute walk of the village amenities where there's a good choice of shops, pubs and restaurants. Guests can take daily boat trips available to the Farne Islands, the home of seals and seabirds and explore the surrounding area filled with wildlife. There are beautiful sandy beaches to the north and south with lots of places of interest just a short journey away. Bamburgh Castle and Holy Island are a short run up the coast and the historic market town of Alnwick along with castle and gardens is a 20 minute drive inland.
Puffin Place is now under new owners Amanda & Jonathan Bailey. We purchased the cottage in April 2018.

"This was the first time we have stayed in a cottage (normally caravan) and can quite easily say we will be back!! This cottage was perfect for our needs just a few minutes walk from the beach and shops and plenty of places to eat. Seahouses is a fantastic place to go with endless clean beaches. From now on Puffin Place will be our place to stay for a lovely peaceful and relaxing holiday and would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys beautiful unspoilt scenery on your doorstep. The cottage was cleaned to a high standard with all the modern kitchen facilities at hand." Review, November 2016
