  • "Very happy with The Boathouse in seahouses."

  • "We are regular visitors to Seahouses and have used different properties."

    We've stayed at the Boathouse on two previous occasions, albeit a few years ago. We find it very comfortable and like the location. Also, on balance good value for the price. There have been some improvements since our last stay, particularly in the bedrooms. A negative point before but much better now. My only disappointment with the place is the shower. Please upgrade! All in all a nice break in a pleasant cottage. We will definitely book again next year. Hopefully the building over the road will have been finished. Noise and parking a nuisance.

  • "This was our third visit to the property, the Boathouse is a good location clean and spacious."

    Unfortunately there was renovation work on the property opposite which I appreciate is beyond the control of the owners it made it very difficult using the garage due to scaffolding and parked vehicles and parking in Seahouses is not easy. The washing machine in the garage was faulty only tried using it once to freshen up towels Still quite an enjoyable stay

    The property was ideal for our trip,just a shame the washing machine and shower in the garage didn't work or was already broken other wise it was fine

  • "The overall accommodation was reasonably tidy and clean, but the one overriding issue was the smell that emanates from the ground floor off road garage which is directly below the first floor living room."

    The smell of oil and fumes from the garage permeates into the living space. It’s easy to place the smell and there was even a hand written note asking anyone using the off road parking to not leave their engine running for too long as fumes can get upstairs. However, the smell isn’t exhaust fumes so much as a working garage smell, the old oil smells heavy in the air and I would hope that a deep clean of the garage would help. It’s not the kind of thing you want from a holiday rental.

  • "This is a lovely property in a great location although there are still many outstanding repair issues mentioned by those who visited and made comments in April and outstanding from last year."

    Additionally to these the second double bedroom blind was broken and could not be closed fully, the bed was most uncomfortable with broken springs and a very squeaky metal bed base. The TV is old and difficult to use. The shower although powerful was only able to run barely warm water. The garage shower is broken. Additionally the tumble dryer and washing machine is shared use in the garage which is not highlighted in the description. I do not think this property is value for money but could quite easily be with some TLC as written in the property customer feedback

  • "Excellent location and enjoyed view to harbour and sea from the settee."

    Bright and warm cottage. Beds and settee and armchair were really comfortable (which is not always the case with holiday lets). Bathroom could do with updating. Appreciated having parking space in garage. Bit tight though for a large car and shared access to washing machine/dryer with next door.

  • "We love coming back to Seahouses to The Boathouse."

    The house is so comfortable with such useful space in the garage/former boathouse. It is in the centre of everything, minimising needing to take the car out, with easy access to coastal walks, shops and cycling. Treated ourselves to a spa afternoon at the Ocean Club and meal at Insieme for a special birthday celebration this time but usually cook with well supplied kitchen and fresh seafood. Thank you!

  • "This is our fourth stay at The Boathouse and we were disappointed this time."

    Mainly due to the number of things that didn’t work and especially as most issues had been reported by us at the end of our stay a year ago when we stayed there last time in April 2022 and nothing had been fixed / sorted! The following things need fixing / replacing: toaster (only right hand side works), heater on landing doesn’t work, heater in lounge by telephone doesn’t work, socket for tumble drier doesn’t work, 4 broken hooks in fish bedroom, 3 broken hooks in white bedroom, kitchen sink plug chain broken, basin plug hole in bathroom grotty, bath panel broken and just taped up. The cost for us to stay at the same time next year is absolutely eye watering and considering we already paid nearly £200 more than our stay last Easter we won’t be paying another £200 to stay next year! This takes the cost to double what we paid on our first visit 5 years ago. It isn’t worth over a £1000 to stay for a week. Please sort out the maintenance issues to help future guests, we won’t be staying again….

  • "The Boathouse is a wonderful place to stay , beautifully clean and equipped in a wonderful village of Seahouses , which had all the facilities that we were looking for holiday as a family."

    The only thing which marred our stay was the fact that SYKES confirmed before arriving that we could have an extra travel cot, which did not arrive for 2 days , meaning that our 6 month baby had to sleep in a suitcase for 2 nights !! Thanks to all of those who helped remedy this situation eventually. Looking forward to booking again for a lovely family break.

    We were so relieved when you eventually got the extra cot delivered. On a lighter note there's definitely a story to tell the little one when they grow up. Property Owner

    Everything in walking distance and only yards away from panoramic views over the harbour and the Farne islands. No issues with parking as you have a garage.

The property

Converted from a traditional boathouse, The Boathouse enjoys a superb setting right next to the picturesque harbour in Seahouses, Northumberland and is the perfect location for a family holiday.

The accommodation is arranged over the first-floor which helps to maximise those beautiful sea views.

The sitting area is warm and welcoming with extensive seating positioned beneath a feature vaulted ceiling and with a nautical theme to the décor, the property exudes coastal vibes.

Step into the small but perfectly formed kitchen area which has everything that’s needed to whip up delicious food for the whole family, with the adjoining dining area all set up ready for sociable family meals together.

With the choice of two double bedrooms and a single and a family bathroom to complete the accommodation, there is also a convenient shower in the garage, ideal for when you’ve been at the beach all day!

Talking of the beach, The Boathouse is ideally situated close to the sandy beaches at Seahouses with the village itself well worth a visit, offering a good variety of shops and eateries.

You can catch a boat from here to Farne Islands where you can look out for birds and seals.

Jump in the car and head out to attractions such as Bamburgh Castle, Alnwick Castle and Gardens, Dunstanburgh Castle, Northumberland Country Zoo, Hauxley Wildlife Discovery Centre and Hadrian’s Wall.

Activities to look forward to while you’re in the region include golf at Alnmouth, horse-riding at Slate Hall Riding Centre and surfing at Bamburgh Castle Beach.

The Boathouse offers a delightful, coastal holiday home-from-home where happy holiday memories will be made.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
