  • "Excellent property well situated in Seahouses."

    Off street parking. Well maintained, clean and tidy. Owner allowed us to enter from 2:00pm on the arrival day which was appreciated. Kept in contact with us via e-mail and found any direct feedback helpful. Ideal for a couple. Do not be put off by description of it being the old bakery, it's been converted into four separate facilities with a modern and tidy outlook. Would definitely book again. It helped to make our holiday very enjoyable.

    Thanks so much for this lovely review Michael. So pleased that you both enjoyed your holiday in Seahouses. Property Owner

The property

Tucked away into the picturesque town of Seahouses, Fat Puffin is a wonderful seaside retreat for a couple looking for a getaway to Northumberland.

Park off-road and enter via raised steps at the front of the property, where you will find the layout reverse-level with the living area on the first floor.

Be welcomed into a tasteful sitting room with a sofa, rug and puffin themed décor adding a quirky feel as you cosy up together and plan the day ahead of you.

The kitchen/diner is lovely and spacious, with a wooden dining table ideal for a romantic meal for two, as well as plenty of space for cooking together.

Freshen up in a contemporary bathroom before settling down into the king-size bedroom.

Seahouses is a fantastic location with loads on offer, beginning with the high street, where there is a great selection of eateries, independent shops and a convenience store so you can stock up on essentials.

Take a walk around Seahouses’ picturesque harbour or explore the amazing sandy beach, or there is the option to travel a little further to explore the coast at Annstead Dunes Nature Reserve or to enjoy a trip around the local coast with Serenity Farne Island Boat Tours.

Further from the property you will find the fantastic town of Bamburgh with its amazing castle and beach, and beyond that the historic Holy Island.

Make an incredible seaside holiday with a stay at Fat Puffin.
