  • "During our stay the hot water and heating went off twice."

    The response to this issue was dealt with quickly and efficiently

  • "We had a lovely stay at Marmalade Cottage, it’s well equipped, the beds are really comfortable and it’s decorated and fitted out to a high standard, the garden is lovely but could of done with a barbecue and there’s no recycling for cardboard or plastics, which isn’t really acceptable."

    Hi amd thank you for your great. feedback. It’s always welcomed. Our bin accepts mixed waste and we pay our commercial refuse contractor a levy to sort it for recycling at the depot. I’m sorry that this wasn’t made clearer at the cottage as it’s only mentioned in the property handbook. Property Owner

  • "We stayed here last year, had a wonderful stay and re booked for this year and paid a premium for the privilege."

    The furniture is looking dated. For example The backs of the kit kitchen chairs are damaged and worn etc. The main issue was the stench when we arrived. At first we didn’t know what it was. We couldn’t open the outside windows at the front. When we first used the outside bin the number of flies that flew out was astonishing. Yup, the bin was putrid. Thereafter to use the bin we had to put a bin liner in, in a split second. My wife was wretching when she went to the car. We complained during our stay. Maintenance simply moved the bin 8 feet further away from the property. The bin should have been emptied and chemically cleaned. Towards the end of the stay there was a large number of flies in the garden and property. We have therefore not booked for next year Simon Helliwell 07540876445

  • "We had good weather."

    We would have used the outside areas more if there had been more outside furniture and a fire pit or chimera. A brush and dustpan for outside would have been useful to keep the area clean

    Thank you for a 100% score! We’re thrilled you felt Marmalade Cottage deserved this. Also, thank you for your recommendations to supply an outdoor dustpan and brush as well as additional outdoor seating. We’re on it! Regrettably the proximity of the patio area to the oil tank doesn’t safely permit us to provide a chimenea. Property Owner

  • "We had a fantastic week at Marmalade Cottage, it is a really lovely place."

    It is very clean, spacious, & well appointed. The owners are attentive (they came to introduce themselves on the first day, & also a faulty tap was dealt with on the Sunday extremely quickly). It is well situated & only a few minutes walk to the centre of Seahouses. Myself & my friends would highly recommend staying here.

    Absolutely top top notch as always - check Sam’s houses out and you won’t go anywhere else - remember you only get what you pay for

    Thank you very much indeed for such glowing feedback Darron. We’re always delighted to hear that our wonderful guests have had a great stay with us either at Marmalade Cottage, The Hemmel Beadnell or Waters Edge Harbour Road Beadnell. Property Owner

    This allowed for a great open living/dining experience overlooked by a mezzanine landing. The house was well equipped and with five comfortable bedrooms our group had a wonderful week’s holiday

    Was such an amazing location, the home was so lovely, we did tend to just use the main bathroom due to low pressure in ensuite showers but the stay was incredible

The property

A simply stunning detached holiday home resting in the tranquil outskirts of Seahouses in Northumberland, Marmalade Cottage is the ideal destination for a large family get-together or a gathering of family and friends.

Inside, the interior has a real ‘wow’ factor and certainly wouldn’t look out of place out in the classiest of interiors magazines.

The outstanding accommodation starts with the open-plan living space which has a double height vaulted ceiling helping to create a real feeling of light and space and makes the most of the beautiful views with bi-folding doors allowing guests to let the outside in.

You can imagine gathering on the comfy seating area either in the winter to get warm in front of the gorgeous woodburning stove or to cool down on hot, sunny days by throwing open the sliding doors; this is a wonderfully sociable space where many happy holiday memories will be made.

The designated chef will be delighted with the sleek and contemporary kitchen which comes fully equipped with everything needed to entertain and feed the troops.

The stylish dining area is set up ready for guests to pull up a chair and look forward to long, leisurely meals together.

Should the sun be shining, then you can carry on the party outside with an attractive patio area complete with extensive patio furniture, where guests can take a seat and chill while any children and pets can run around safely in the enclosed gardens.

A great alternative space to relax and either play or chill out is the mezzanine level play room which has seating and the space for children to play or the grown-ups to sit back and curl up with a good book away from the hustle and bustle of the main house.

The ‘wow’ factor continues with the bedrooms, which are like something out of a chic boutique hotel; tasteful soft furnishings combine with beautiful décor and sumptuous beds, throws, cushions and rugs, which all add up to create a really laid back vibe.

There are five wonderfully appointed bedrooms; four king-size and one double and with four bathrooms to choose from, no need to worry about queuing for the bathroom in the morning!

Seahouses is just a few minutes’ walk which has a good selection of amenities as well as miles of sandy beaches and because it’s located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you are guaranteed a whole host of beautiful walks and hikes rewarded by some stunning views along the way.

Take a boat trip which run daily from Seahouses to Farne islands where you can look out for birds and seals.

Further afield there are magnificent castles to discover such as Dunstanburgh, Warkworth, Lindisfarne and Cragside, with towns such as the historic market town of Alnwick; Alnmouth known for its excellent golf course; and Bamburgh with its infamous castle.

For an outstanding holiday destination that oozes style and glamour, a stay at Marmalade Cottage promises holiday memories that will last forever.
