    20 minutes walk into Seahouses which has lovely independent shops with everything you need. 5 minutes walk to the beautiful beach. We have stayed in many self catering places over the years, but have never had such a welcome. 2 gorgeous vases with fresh flowers in the living room, a huge selection of amazing goodies in the welcome pack, and lots of little extra touches around the house. The house itself was spotlessly clean, very tastefully decorated, with all the equipment you could possibly want. We absolutely loved our stay there and we will definitely be returning. Well done Rachael and Neil, you are doing a fantastic job.

    It's a great location. The beach is a five minute walk and the centre of Seahouses 15-20 minutes. There are beach /coastal walks on your doorstep and Seahouses is the perfect base to explore Alnwick, Bamburgh, Farne Islands etc. The house itself was amazing with lovely rooms and a great back garden for our little one ...

Rachael and Neil made a lot of effort to make us feel welcome and really could not do enough for us. The little touches were lovely and much appreciated. By the end of our holiday Shell Manor felt like home and we did not want to leave! Helen & Steve, September 21

    We were feeling low and not hopeful. However, Sykes were extremely helpful and told us about Shell Manor. What a wonderful experience! We have just had an amazing, longed for, family holiday with our children and grandchildren at Shell Manor. The property is perfect, with spacious rooms, spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated, great amenities. The children absolutely loved the garden, and the hot tub was their favourite thing! The area is lovely and we enjoyed the beach, boat trip, local areas and Alnwick Castle and Gardens. The owners could not have been more attentive or made us feel more welcome. Highly recommeded and we will definitely return. We wanted to take the house home with us! We have had a perfect family holiday with wonderful memories to treasure.

Tucked away on a quiet cul-de-sac on the outskirts of the quaint fishing village of Seahouses rests this remarkable double fronted holiday home, Shell Manor.

Set over three floors and boasting fabulous sea views, Shell Manor offers the perfect setting for your next group adventure to the North East.

Dust off your sandy toes as you step over the threshold and enter into this lovely dwelling, following the hallway through to the beautifully-appointed sitting room to unwind with a leisurely seat on the sofa, enveloped in the fabulous natural lighting that floods the room through the traditional bay window.

Be charmed by the open-plan living space, offering a sociable setting to gather with your loved ones following an action-packed day, featuring a contemporary kitchen decorated with striking feature lighting and intricate tiles, housing all of the essential amenities necessary to assist the budding chef in preparing some tasty treats for the group.

Gather together around the stunning marble dining table that takes centre stage in the sociable space to serve your culinary delights, or if you're lucky enough to experience the warmer weather, head outside to enjoy a spot of alfresco dining, ending the day in style with a luxurious soak amongst the bubbles in the hot tub, soaking in the fresh sea breeze.

As the evening draws to a close, climb the stairs to the first-floor where you'll find four thoughtfully laid-out bedrooms, two king-size rooms alongside two twin bedrooms, providing the ideal sleeping arrangements for a variety of party makeups, each decorated with a neutral interior, offering a peaceful setting to rest your eyes ahead of a new day.

Nestled on the second-floor is the marvellous master suite, fit with a delightful Juliette balcony, where you can enjoy a solace escape with your significant other as you soak in the far-reaching views across the treetops to the dramatic coastline before snuggling under the covers in the sumptuous super king-size bed.

Get better acquainted with your surroundings and take the short stroll into the heart of Seahouses, home to an array of amenities to assist with your self-catering needs, and watch as the boats sail across the tranquil waters into the charming harbour, bask in the sun's rays from the beautiful golden sand that decorates the seafront, or test your swing with a round of golf at the towns 18-hole course.

Take a boat trip to the nearby Farne Islands, home to an abundance of quirky wildlife, including puffins and seals, and if you're lucky, you might even catch sight of the dolphins as they play in the water.

Lace up your walking boots and follow the Northumberland Coast Path to explore the hidden gems of the fabulous coastline, recognized as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, boasting panoramic views across the water as you pass sweeping beaches, rocky headland, quaint seaside towns and dramatic ruined castles.

Further inland is the delightful market town of Alnwick, home to Alnwick Castle, famously known as Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from the famous movie franchise, Harry Potter; take a scenic stroll through the towns beautifully-maintained formal gardens or explore the fascinating history on display at Bailiffgate Museum.
