  • "The house had good quality fittings."

    The kitchen area was fine (though could have done with 6 extra table knives) The bathrooms were good. The living area had only 2 x 2 seater sofas, and 1 x wooden chair. The other chair for the the 6th person had to be taken from the dining table chairs. The photo gives the impression of being at the sea front when in fact it is down the street, the sea being only visible from a side window. The other window overlooks a crowded caravan site.

  • "As for the cleaning up after ourselves it would helpful if the hoover was in working order."

    The cleanness there was a peanut still left under the table after the previous tenants, and there where also cobwebs, here and there, and a light out in the kitchen. I am very particular when it comes to recycling but there was only a black bin available, which was already over half full

    Many thanks for your comments. I'm sorry that our blue bin wasn't in its normal place when you were staying. Our cleaner had reported it missing after recent storms. I'm pleased to say it was located and returned a few days later, but sadly not while you were staying. I had already made our cleaner aware of the need for some deep cleaning work and high dusting which will be done when the property is empty this winter. Thanks for letting us know about the hoover. It is only about 18 months old, but it sounds like we need a more robust one. I've discussed it with our cleaner (who uses her own equipment) and she has recommended we replace it with a Henry vacuum which should be more reliable. We will order that shortly. Many thanks again for your feedback. It allows us to fix things for future guests. Property Owner

  • "Lovely stay at harbour lights house."

    Great facilities, nice to have those homely extras you wouldn’t normally get. Beautiful fireplace sets the lounge area off beautifully. Great views of the sea which is only meters away. We stayed in October 23, nice as cosy inside as it rained outside. Also has some lovely sunny days. Second time visiting Northumbria this year and would definitely come back and stay here again.

    Many thanks for your lovely feedback, Michelle. As owners we try to keep it in great condition. Indeed, we stayed last week to check everything over and to replace broken, missing or worn out items. We hope to welcome you back again in the future. Property Owner

  • "A lovely holiday home, facilites excellent!"

    The sitting room with its extra height, windows on both sides and roof, is particularly pleasant, bright and comfortable. The view was very good, we were able to watch the storm which occurred during our stay, with it's awesome waves, crashing on the sea wall and harbour safely from the comfort of our living room !

    Thank you for your comments. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay, despite the stormy weather. The sea breaking over the harbour walls can be quite spectacular! Property Owner

    Well equipped. Parking a little tricky getting in and out. Lovely views and walks. Very friendly locals. Would recommend to friends and family.

    Many thanks for your lovely comments. We hope to welcome you back again. Property Owner

  • "Cottage exactly as described/pictured, comfortable, great location, good facilities."

    Just a couple of fixes required - light in hall needs the transformer replacing or a new unit (owner has known about this for some time) and a downlight in the downstairs bathroom needs replacing. Seahouses is a great village, plenty of restaurants, cafes, coffee shops and pubs. We were concerned about the lack of a major supermarket, but the Co-op is one of the largest I've come across and has a good range of produce.

    Thank you for your kind comments and for raising the fixes required. I have ordered a replacement light today which, hopefully, should be fitted in time for our next guests. Thanks for raising it. We like to keep our properties in tip-top condition and reports of things needing fixed really helps us to do that. Property Owner

  • "Harbour Lights is a clean and comfortable cottage with superb views."

    Great to have off street parking, although access can be tricky for larger cars, depending on vehicles parked opposite the archway. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and has good storage. The showers are powerful with an excellent supply of hot water. We assumed that perhaps a winter touch up of the paintwork might be going to happen as lots of marks are visible where guests have scuffed the wall with bags. There was a problem when we arrived as the house had not been serviced and, although we had issues with the way this was handled on the telephone, the team of five cleaners who came to sort it out did a superb job.

    We really appreciate your feedback, thank you. We endeavour to keep Harbour Lights House very well equipped and in excellent condition. At the end of last season we prioritised the replacement of all carpets and have recently installed a new fridge freezer. We will reassess the paintwork when we are next in the property. I have spoken to our cleaner regarding the initial servicing issue. A change of the booking notification system from the agent to our cleaner meant this turnaround was unfortunately missed in the first instance, but we are pleased that it was rectified promptly. This will not happen again. As belt and braces we, as owners, are now also sending the forward bookings list to the cleaning team. Thanks again for your honest and balanced feedback. It gives us the opportunity to address any issues and we really appreciate it. Property Owner

  • "Brilliant location."

    We stayed as two couples and the layout worked very well but it would also be great for families. Ten minute walk from the centre of Seahouses and only five to the nearest pub serving food. The house is extremely well equipped.
