  • "Lovely cottage and fantastic location."

    Cottage is cosy and feels homely with all the soft furnishings and accessories. Plenty of storage space too. The only downside for me is the outside garden furniture in the balcony and back yard is old / dated and falling apart and this lets the property down as everything else is fitted to a good standard and thought out well so to make this 10 out of 10 I would suggest replacing this tired furniture and it would be perfect. Apart from that a lovely place and if we ever visit Northumberland again we would consider staying at Hastings Dairy.

    Tea bags, milk and biscuits provided on arrival. Comfy beds and sofas. Owner Louise came and said hello and checked all was okay. Gets the sun most of the day untill 6pm in the back and nice to sit out on the balcony also. You can park outside the cottage on the road or on the slope right by the house, we did get the car in the garage but very narrow and is an access route, possible to drive though into the yard. Seahouses itself is about a 10 min walk on the pavement and is very picturesque. Was actually nicer to be just outside the main area. Very enjoyable stay and would deffinitley go back

    Clean had everything you need. There are a few improvements/maintenance that are needed: the shower hose leeks quite a bit, the front door is stiff to open and it's the first time I've stayed in a house without a washing machine. None of these took anything away from our Lovely stay. I would recommend Hastings dairy and would stay again.

  • "Could not fault the cleanliness."

    Everywhere was immaculately clean. Unfortunately the cottage on arrival (4pm) was very cold, we had driven through a few flurries of snow and low temperatures so expected heating to be on. Although 3 shelves in master bedroom, a chest of drawers would have would have been better suited. Lack of storage for food provisions. Cottage states for 4 people but I feel it would seem overcrowded for 4 adults, thankfully just two of us. Balcony was great for the night skies. Seahouses is central for visiting beaches and villages along the coastal this area.

Perfectly situated for exploring the whole area. A bus stop right outside the door provided a prompt and regular service from Berwick to Alnwick stopping at all the coastal villages in between. Thank-you. We hope to stay again as there are so many things we still want to do in the area.

  • "The kitchen is very good and the local Co-Op well stocked."

    Portly customers might struggle to sit round the table. We knew there wasn’t a washing machine and came prepared, but unlike most Youth Hotels there’s no drying room. Stronger light bulbs on the landing and a re-located ‘doggy gate’ would improve safety (we 4 were between 59 & 86). Different coloured towels would be better. More supportive mattresses would have helped us ancient mortals. The viability of the property may change once the proposed yellow line parking is implemented as there isn’t enough paid parking half a mile away in Seahouses; we gather that zealous traffic wardens penalise pavement parking outside the cottage and only very small vehicles can be parked directly in front, although with significant skill we managed to park a Mini Cooper in the rear yard through the garage (which is off-bounds)

    A few things: 1. The shower head is completely disgusting and needs sorting out immediately. The owner cannot claim ignorance of this as it is mentioned in the review book in the cottage. 2. Multiple blown light bulbs...a pet hate of mine...but really simple to check for. 3. You really need a washing machine... Otherwise, the communications from the owner were great, and we had a nice time. Sort the shower out...a new head costs about £5 from Lidl!
