  • "The accommodation was in a great location and surprisingly quiet being that it was on the main road."

    The accommodation was spotless and it was extremely well equipped. There was plenty of utensils, board games, bucket and spades ect. These little things make a great difference. The welcome pack was a great addition Unfortunately the beds where not up to standard and need changing asap. When you got in the master bed, you slopped to the middle, which made for a very uncomfortable nights sleep. I'm only 37 and in great physical health, and I've returned home with an achy back. The mattress on the bottom bunk was well used and when you lead on it the springs could be felt. We did turn it over and it was better but not what we'd come to expect from Northumbria Cottages. Most of our party unfortunately suffered with niggles due to the beds and it wasn't that we were just not used to the beds. The parking is a little tight but it is a good addition to the property considering it is in the centre of town. Unfortunately the neighbour across the back was not very nice and seems to take issue with holiday makers using the shared access. He parks his car in such a way you have to reverse on the main road. I was struggling to get our car out and he was out straight away standing in front of my car, shaking his head at me and telling me to back up. As a women out there on my own i found this very intimating. All he had to do was move his car slightly back, but he preferred to watch me struggle. Once you get the hang of it, it's douable just not great being stared at by Victor Meldrew. Not the owner of the cottages fault but perhaps they could have a word with him to remind him he doesn't own the shared access. If he did that to a guy he might get thumped! All in all we had a very pleasant stay and the issues didn't spoil our holiday. The beds would need addressing before we would consider booking again

  • "Guttering above front doors drips in 2 places when raining, and on the rear of the property the second rainwater drain to the right of the back door appears blocked."

    Garden could do with tidying up, but in the main we were very happy with the property, handy for Seahouses, and nice and quiet in the evenings. Plenty of variation for places to eat as well.

  • "A well positioned property, close to the town centre."

    The ship inn food and drink was great, a bus to Bamburgh and walk back is a nice day out, as is a walk along to Beadnell and a lunch in the courtyard cafe. Scott’s Butchers a few doors away had top quality produce as well. 4 bedrooms in the property, but lots of beds as there was a trundle in one small single room and a bunk bed and trundle in the second small room. The 5th (TV room) also had a small double sofa bed. Lovely back garden that got the sun from mid day onwards. A few simple things that were a bit disappointing and could have made a big difference. No hand-soap in the toilets on arrival, and two fire places that had not been cleaned and no stater supply of wood - have always received this at every other property we have stayed at. The dark wooden blinds gave good privacy but made the house very dark and the handles / locks on the doors were a bit cheap temperamental! All in all, a good stay enjoyed by the full family, but with a few small and inexpensive tweaks it could have been great!

  • "Would highly recommend The Beach Retreat at Seahouses."

    We had an enjoyable two night stay. The property was very clean and comfortable and in an excellent location. The only issue I would like to highlight is that the parking at the rear of the propery proved challenging. This was partly due to where a neighbours car was parked. The neighbour obviously took great pleasure in watching us struggle out of their window. However this did not spoil our stay. The Beach Retreat is excellent value for money.

The property

A pretty stone-built terraced cottage settled into the coastal town of Seahouses, within easy reach of the town centre, Beach Retreat is the ideal Northumberland getaway for a family.

Be welcomed by this lovely stone terraced property and get cosy in a characterful sitting room, with wooden roofbeams treaded throughout the ceiling and a bare brick fireplace housing a woodburning stove, great for warming your feet after a long day at the beach as you relax in one of the leather sofas.

When mealtimes call, a tasteful kitchen/diner sports an amply fitted kitchen with wooden flooring and contemporary furniture, stocked with all of the amenities needed to make a heart-warming meal, and there is a woodburning stove and tiled floor throughout the dining area, as well as a quirky wooden bench, adding a real countryside cottage feel.

Four bedrooms rest throughout this property, as well as a family bathroom, including a spacious king-size with an en-suite, a double bedroom with an en-suite, a single and a bunk, as well as a playroom for children to enjoy, where there is an additional sofa bed (bedding not included).

Outside, enjoy dining alfresco in a patio space bordered by pretty shrubs providing a pop of colour.

Seahouses is a fantastic coastal location where you can enjoy a hot meal at one of the local eateries, or coffee in a quaint tea shop before checking out the local independent shops and scenic harbour.

Seahouses has a local golf club and a fantastic sandy beach, however you can explore the local scenery further with Serenity Farne Island Boat Tours.

Travel a short distance from the property you will find Bamburgh with its impressive castle and scenic coastline, and beyond that the historic Holy Island boasting many shops, eateries and fascinating historical sites, including Lindisfarne Priory and Lindisfarne Castle.

Make a seaside getaway to remember with a stay at Beach Retreat.
