  • "We really enjoyed our stay."

    It didn't matter that the weather was awful - we had everything we needed in the house, there was plenty to do in Seahouses and the local area and the people were lovely. We left the car and used the bus most days.

  • "What a lovely place to stay."

    This home had everything you could want and more. Never seen so many pots. So clean and well kept. The fire failed to work one night. Not a problem there was a spare heater we could use. The next day Simon was on the ball and sorted the fire out for us. I would highly recommend Crumstone Corner. If you ever start taking dogs we will be back. Thank you for an amazing Holiday.

    It had everything we needed and more besides. A welcoming box of biscuits, coffee, tea and other necessaries, were provided. If there had been a few dishwasher tablets we would have used them. Lovely location very near the centre of town which was surprisingly quiet given our location. A peaceful yet adventure filled retreat. Many thanks!

    Lots of useful things in the cottage that we didn’t know we needed, but used throughout the week. Very well thought through. We loved the games room! Perfect place for our family.

  • "Immaculately clean on arrival."

    Well equipped for a self catering holiday. Fresh milk in the fridge on arrival, as well as tea, coffee, sugar, biscuits and wine is a nice touch. The house is literally round the corner from the harbour, pubs and shops of this lovely seaside town. Reserved off road parking on the drive at the rear of the property is very useful. Good base to explore Holy Island, Berwick, Bamburgh and Alnwick with lots of other lovely seaside places such as Beadnell only a few minutes drive. The house is well furnished throughout and very comfortable. Good sized TV with DVD (good variety of family DVDs) , good WiFi and even an Amazon Alexa. We had a perfect week's stay. We would stay here again and have already recommended to friends and family.

    Plenty of hot water and an efficient fire in the lounge in addition to the storage heaters. The vertical rail holding the shower head had been damaged, presumably by a previous guest but it was not apparent till my husband used it and it fell. I rang Simon and he was most apologetic and arranged to call in and effect a repair. H We had a great week with castles and walks aplenty.

  • "Very much enjoyed our visit."

    The cottage was really clean and comfortable, and had everything we needed for our stay. It is just yards away from the harbour and the centre of Seahouses, but is in a quiet and peaceful location. Seahouses is the perfect base for exploring the Northumberland coast. Highly recommended. We'd be very happy to stay there again.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Crumstone Corner."

    The property is very well-equipped and nicely furnished. The bathroom has been updated since the photographs on the website were taken. It's close to all amenities in Seahouses and has a sea view out of the front bedroom window. It wasn't a problem for us as we didn't use it, but the door to the twin bedroom couldn't be closed as one of the beds was in the way. Apart from that, we would definitely recommend a stay at Crumstone Corner.

    Thank you for your lovely comments. Just to clarify the twin bedroom door can be closed but the bed has to be moved right up against the wall. Property Owner

    The house is perfect for a small family and we had a great week using it as a base to explore locally and relax. There are great places to eat within minutes walk of the house and it has everything you need to cook. Loads of movies and games to choose from and really comfortable beds. I’m sure we will be back again.

    Firstly it's location. It is a short 2 minute walk from the main Street which has shops and restaurants etc. The harbour is also a 2 minute walk . I would say this is one of the best properties we have stayed at. It is very well kept, and very clean. The owners have put alot of thought in to meeting the needs of all the family. There are DVDs for all ages, games and puzzles for all ages and an amazing games room in the garage. The kitchen equipment is high quality and very well stocked. It is a home from home! Would highly recommend and would visit again.

    We couldn't believe the location - so close to the shops and harbour. We specifically wanted to see the puffins on Farne Island as last time we came they were not nesting so this was ticked off for us. The Links Hotel is great for meals especially the Steak night on Wednesdays.

  • "We had a wonderful stay here."

    The house was extremely clean. It had everything we needed. The kitchen was extremely well equipped. The cupboards were full of lots of extras including tea/coffee, washing up liquid, foil etc. We even had milk, cookies and prosecco to welcome us. There were lots of DVDs, games and books available. The garage had a pool table, air hockey, table tennis, dart board etc. The bedrooms had lovely clean bed linen and towels. The double mattress was firm and the twin mattresses were soft. I think the beds are new since pictures were taken. They are now wooden in the twin bedroom. The shower was nice with lots of little shower gels/bubble bath to use. The only thing I would mention is that when the toilet is flushed, it makes a loud noise coming from the cupboard on the landing which could potentially wake you up in the night. The curtains aren't completely black out and the seagulls are quite noisy early in the mornings. Apart from that, we would definitely stay here again.

  • "The property is ideally located, close to the centre of Seahouses."

    The parking space is convenient, but made difficult to use by the proximity of large industrial bins at the rear of nearby shops and sometime inconsiderate parking of others. The bathroom would benefit from having a mirror above the sink and a new bath mat. There was sufficient cutlery and china, but some sharp kitchen knives would have been appreciated. My wife would have liked a small table in the bedroom on which to put creams, brushes etc. The windowsill is not the ideal place to keep such things. All the above said, we would have awarded 4.5 stars if they were available. We would happily go again.
