  • "Great cottage very comfortable."

    Great location. Very clean and tidy. Few more cushions on settees and chairs would be beneficial.

  • "Extremely clean and welcoming."

    Area is very quiet. Cottage is very close to the harbour and only a few minutes walk away Although there is no parking the carpark is only 5 mins away We had a really great holiday here.

  • "Just the most lovely cottage, in the most lovely of locations."

    Probably the best equipped (in terms of kitchen cutlery at least!) we’ve stayed in and so very comfortable. Seahouses is very pleasant with all necessary amenities, but the surrounding area of Northumberland is just beautiful. We fell in love with the place and will most definitely be back.

  • "This is our 2nd visit to Fisherman’s Cottage and it retained its appeal."

    Ideally situated in the centre of Seahouses, with lovely easily accessible walks (which is good and necessary if you have a dog as there is no garden.) Although no parking at property is allowed, a free permit is given to use local car park which is a convenient walking distance.

  • "We are repeat customers to both Sykes and Fisherman's Cottage."

    We love Northumberland and spend time walking and beach combing. We have an old dog. This cottage is perfect for our needs. It's close to the sea, and close to shops for food and a good variety of takeaways. The cottage has a faded chintz feel to it and its facilities are not particularly modern, but you have everything you need and what we like is the home from home feel. It's comfortable and homely. We are likely to return. The only downside is the lack of parking by the cottage, but having a free parking pass for the main car park is useful. I'm not sure how that works in high season as the main car park gets very busy even at low season on weekends. If you want high end ultra modern, perhaps not the choice for you, but if you want a spacious and comfortable family cottage, I'd recommend Fisherman's Cottage.

  • "The sofas were very uncomfortable and need replacing."

    A good assortment of decent saucepans but the frying pan was too small, scratched and rusty as were the roasting dishes. The owner was informed about the state of the roasting pans. Overall it needs a deep clean. The security lights on houses at back were coming on and off all night making difficult to sleep.

    Thank you for your feedback. I understand the owner offered to replace the pans during your stay but you preferred not to accept the offer. However, the pans and baking trays were replaced after your stay. The property normally receives full marks for cleanliness and if a guest has any issues during their stay the owner is keen to address this as soon as possible. Property Owner

    Good location, close to shops, pubs, beach etc. No parking outside property, but available not far away and the permit meant we didn't need to pay for parking in other places. Several phone calls to Sykes cottages, they apparently needed my email address. I gave it to 3 different people on 3 separate occasions. I didn't actually get sent any information until the third phone call when the chap I spoke to was very helpful.
