  • "Hi we enjoyed our short stay, however it MUST be highlighted how tight and difficult the parking is for 1 car."

    We didnt expect how tight it was and we have a small car, plus other people parking in the lane made parking there almost impossible. (Maybe better signs) The main bedroom bed needs a new mattress it was the worst mattress we have ever slept on. If these details were attended to we would definitely rebook.

    Cottage brochure advises one small car for parking although neighbors have had a Range Rover back there. I’ve also had full size sedan back there. Reverse in so easier out. Mattresses are brand new! Property Owner

  • "Hare's Form is an absolutely beautiful, cosy cottage."

    From the moment we walked in we felt at home. I really liked the decor and the furnishings, at the same time modern and homely. The window in between the kitchen and the living room was especially charming, as were the stone walls. We didn't use the log burner (we are incompetent townies!) but I can imagine it makes it absolutely gorgeous when it's on. The positioning of the cottage also excellent both for the centre of the village and for walking the surrounding coast. I highly recommend this cottage! The only point I would highlight as a negative are the bins. The rubbish hadn't been collected for a while and so we had no room for our own rubbish and had to leave a separate bin bag on top of the wheelie bin. I understand if no one is in the cottage on bin day they might not be emptied, but having no where to put food waste is not ideal. The parking is also a bit tricky. Once I got used to it I was fine, but I would definitely emphasise it needs to be a small car as the easiest way to get in and out of the space is to reverse in round a corner between a wall and a house.

  • "Very cosy, spacious and comfortable cottage in a great location."

    Had everything we needed for our stay (only suggestion would be to provide a couple of blankets).

  • "Small and difficult to access car parking space a big issue and dependent on how other cars parked for reverse access down narrow gap."

    Had to abandon use of this when car scraped along the wall. A lot of other cottages provide a token for use of the public car park where there is no effective parking. Mattress for single bed very uncomfortable and had to purchase a mattress topper. Saucepans and baking trays had damaged surfaces and were not fit for purpose. Notwithstanding the foregoing the cottage itself comfortable and location was excellent and a good base for exploring.

    The cleanliness of each room was excellent. It was ideally situated to the harbour and the sea front.

  • "Wonderful cottage in an almost perfect location."

    No hot water upstairs is the only quibble. Seahouses itself is just lovely !

  • "Lovely well maintained, clean and comfortable cottage in a lovely quiet street ."

    Our only concern relates to the minimal and not easy accessible parking, but that appears to be case for the majority of properties in Seahouses. Other than that, we had no problems whatsoever.

    Yes - parking is tight! The brochure says one small car around the back. Reverse around - and it’s somewhat easier - took me while to get the angles correct!! And believe it or not I’ve seen a neighbor’s full size Range Rover back there!! No idea how he got it back there. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "Fabulous stay at Hares Form, the house is quaint, comfortable and spotless, it's around a minute from the sea and the town but it feels 'out of the way' as it's so quiet where it's situated."

    We will return as we loved our stay - 5*****

  • "First time at Hares Form."

    Very happy with the location, two minutes from sea front, pubs and shops. The accommodation is very homely, cottage very warm, didn't need to use the log burner. All home comforts provided and good quality. Would highly recommend if you don't need a garden for pets, but be aware the parking behind is snug to access; anything bigger than a Ford focus you would struggle. Would definitely go back as we love that area of Northumberland! One final thing: please provide pizza cutter ;-)

  • "Great location."

    Very Short walk to all amenities. Walk north out of seahouses and there is sandy beach all the way to Bamburgh. Walk south and join the beach all the way to Beadnell and beyond. Amazing! Cottage warmed up nicely once we worked out electric radiators. Really big stove, you need to buy own wood and coal. A new seal has been put into door which makes it difficult to shut. I was pleased my son was there to close it as I was struggling which was a concern considering the fire was going. Hopefully the seal will bed down but I didn’t use the stove again once he left at the end of weekend and my wife and I stayed for the week. Cottage is comfortable and cozy and we quickly felt at home. Would definitely return.

    A beautiful cottage, with some really nice features, warm and charming. It had everything a group of four could want, we all had a fab time and the Olde Ship Inn is brilliant! Just want to say a big thanks to the owners. We'll be back.

  • "If it was possible to score higher than 5 stars, we would."

    This was a surprise 60th present for my wife. We love the area and she was delighted when I told her on the way we were heading for a cottage in Seahouses. Doubly delighted when she stepped inside. The property, a credit to the owners, is first class, beautifully furnished and maintained. It instantly felt like home. Her delight was added to by finding our daughter in the kitchen. She had flown over from Bali and arrived minutes before us. An amazing three days in a fabulous cottage in a wonderful place.
