  • "This is a lovely, well equipped cottage which is in an excellent location for visiting many of the local attractions."

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay despite the poor weather. The only downside was the parking - we were a party of three (2 cars) travelling from different regions of the UK. There is only room for one car at the cottage and parking in Seahouses is not easy! The only car park is very expensive (£8 per day). Just something to bear in mind.

  • "Great stay at the lobster pot cottage, excellent location for facilities around seahouses with the bonus of off road parking."

  • "Absolutely loved staying in the Lobster Pot Cottage!"

    Lovely and clean and I felt at home there straight away. Obviously it's in a fabulous location, private parking is a bonus and it is a great base to explore the rest of Northumberland. The cottage is very well stocked with practically everything you need to enjoy your stay - something which in my experience appears to be becoming increasingly rare with many holiday lets, many of which fail to provide the very basics - but not here! The generous welcome pack was much appreciated - again something else many holiday lets seem to have done away with so thank you! I would highly recommend a stay here, I only wish I could have stayed longer!

  • "Cosy warm cottage, equipped with everything you could possibly need."

    Some very nice and much appreciated little touches. Private parking which is a real bonus in Seahouses. If you want homely and welcoming accommodation, this is for you. It feels like a home from home. This was our second visit and we hope to be back again next year.

    The cottage is very comfortable, well equipped, has everything that you would need to enjoy your stay. Lovely and warm, just the job in this cold weather. Centrally located with easy access to what Seahouses has to offer. Would definitely recommend and have in fact already booked for next year.

  • "The cottage is wonderful,however we found the showers let it down for us the water wasn’t hot enough and only enough hot water to shampoo my hair in the wet room when it went cold so I had to go upstairs to finish showering which wasn’t ideal."

    We also found it difficult to control the radiators.Saying that the cottage is in a fabulous location and we enjoyed our holiday tremendously.

    The living rooms and bedrooms are so relaxing and the kitchen is so well stocked that you just want to spend all your time in it. The cottage has everything you could possibly need on a holiday and a parking space is fabulous. Will return again and again

    Probably the best equipped cottage we have ever stayed in.

  • "Without doubt Lobster Pot Cottage is the best cottage we have ever rented through Sykes Cottages, and we've rented few over the years."

    It was exceptionally clean, well appointed, fully equipped and it was obvious that the owners used the cottage as there were several personal items left in odd places. The beds were comfortable, warm and the bedrooms had adequate storage. The en-suites for each room were handy but I would suggest some more photos of them on the website. Being used to power showers I found the electric ones a little underwhelming but that is just me and wouldn't prevent me from re booking. Centrally located in Seahouses the house was just a very short walk from the shops and at least two pubs. We did hear the live music from one pub on a couple of nights but it stopped promptly at 11 o'clock in the evening. The beach and harbour are almost on the doorstep and gave us plenty to see . Lots of great walks in the local area and the local people were very friendly and helpful. Would I go back to Lobster Pot Cottage? Yes in a heartbeat.
