  • "Well we went to stay at Seahouses in a wonderful cottage (Kilrenny)."

    It was clean, very comfortable and very close to the sea (a 1 min walk in fact) you would not believe the walks locally so many places to visit. The bed in the main bedroom is massive ! Me and my wife loved our stay here and would have loved to have stayed longer. The area is just bliss and dog heaven. If you stay here you will love it. Had a great time and nothing is too much trouble. Thank you for a great holiday location!!

  • "Great location close to centre of village."

    No parking at property, but the car park was close by and the parking pass was actually a bonus as it could be used at a number of car parks across Northumberland - we used it at Beadnell, Lindisfarne and Bamburgh which saved quite a bit in parking charges. Nice decor and furniture - super King bed was a bonus as made it more a home from home. Lots of crockery and cups which meant you could actually use the dishwasher as enough to rotate. Good amount of other kitchen utensils to allow home cooking. Washing machine was also a plus point.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Kilrenny ."

    The house was very comfortable and had obviously just been refurbished. The parking permit was great, we didn’t have to pay for parking anywhere during our 5 day stay. We were a little disappointed that the welcome basket wasn’t as shown in the photographs it was just tea/coffee and biscuits sadly no Jammy Red chocs etc . It would be good if there were some lights in the garden and perhaps one by the front door. Just some battery solar/ sensor lights would be great. Would definately recommend Kilrenny and would love to return.

  • "There seems to be a lack of written instructions."

    There are no television instructions and normal TV does not appear. There are two remotes and it would be very helpful to have further info. The main remote turns the tv on but what the smaller remote is for I don't know. There no instructions for the heating, it is all guess work. I managed to get it to work fortunately I am not a technophobe.but others might struggle. How to open and lock the back door would be helpful too. This is a great house, very comfortable and would recommend it to anyone. The parking permit is very handy and can be used at various other car parks in the area. It is only a very short walk to the car park through the cutting. Would definitely book again.

  • "Myself and my daughter had a wonderful mini break at the end of Aug."

    The property was well decorated, spacious and really comfortable with everything you need for a home from home trip. We unloaded the car and found the car park without any issue. The walk back to the house is quick and easy. There’s a cut at the end of the street which brings you straight onto the main street with lots of independent shops and restaurants. The outdoor sitting area is lovely and feels reasonably private. We spent 2 days surfing so it was the perfect base for us and will definitely be back.

  • "The property is advertised as having a sea view and off road parking , which was the main reason for booking the property over others."

    The only view was a tiny chink of sea between two chimneys and parking was a 10 min walk away in the main carpark in Seahouses . On arrival we had no parking permit in the property and had to pay for 3 days of parking whilst it was sorted. The property looks very attractive on the photos and it was to a degree, but on closer inspection many small details detracted from the overall experience. No batteries in the TV remote, dead seagull in the garden, unprepared seating area, kitchen light switch non functioning and no welcome pack or property instructions for linen/bins/wifi etc. The beds, linen and towels were all good quality . The TV has no live feed just streaming channels that require your own log in. Everything in the house looked very newly bought or installed with many of the price labels still on! Good property overall just needs the finishing touches sorting as well as a more honest advert

    Hi Susan, Thanks for the feedback and this will really help get the property just right. You're right, the property has only just finished an extensive refurbishment so we may be experiencing a few teething problems as you were one of the first guests to stay. The maintenance team will give regular inspections to ensure that the property is up to expectations. I will follow up with Sykes to ensure the welcome pack, TV Remote, Seagull, furniture issues and kitchen light issues are all addressed going forward. The parking permit was delayed by Northumberland County Council unfortunately and I had to reorder it so I can only apologise for this. The welcome pack should be updated to show the route to the car park is actually only approx. 1 minute walk due to direct access from Mayfield to main street and then via a cut through the businesses. Again teething problems getting the info just right so guests can get the best experience, Overall though, I hope you enjoyed your stay and I would love to welcome you back again in the future.

  • "We stayed in Mayfield for a long weekend."

    It was our first time going to Seahouses and Northumberland. It certainly lived up to its reputation for having some of the best beaches and coastline in the UK with some absolutely stunning scenery (and some of the best fish and chips as we don’t get them as good down south!) The house was immaculate and it looked very recently renovated. We found it very comfortable, the master bedroom is a great size and had everything we needed to make the stay comfortable and enjoyable (both for adults and our young daughters aged 3 & 5). The garden is a great space to enjoy the evenings on the decking and a safe space for the kids to play as it is enclosed a secured by a gate. Although there is no on site/off road parking it was handy to unload at the front of the house and then park the car in the main car park in the village which is only a short 1 minute walk through the access at the end of the street and across main st. The parking pass is handy and saves you that little bit extra on parking. I will definitely look to return to Seahouses again next year and would use the property again as the central location is perfect.
