    Everything has been thought of in terms of equipment and comfort. Parking is quite tight especially if all the other cottages in the courtyard are in use but I would definitely recommend this cottage, it is absolutely lovely.

    Sunnie cottage is perfectly located on the harbour with all amenities in walking distance. The property was very clean and comfortable with everything you would need, very much a home from home. The host is amazing, excellent communication and went above and beyond to ensure our stay was faultless. We will be booking to return soon hopefully!

    The cottage is very well appointed and has everything you need for a very comfortable stay. Only a few steps away from Seahouses harbour, the cottage is perfectly located for you to explore and enjoy the local area. Thanks to the owner for excellent communication and the welcome treats on arrival which were much appreciated. Looking forward to our next visit.

  • "Great cottage."

    Location is ideal....close to harbour and main street. Having a parking space provided is a real bonus as these are few and fair between in that part of town. We stayed during the big freeze and it was more than warm enough. Kitchen had everything you could need. Nespresso machine and pods a bonus! Thanks very much for the lovely welcome gifts...we will be back!! Recommend it.

  • "Sunnie Cottage is situated within metres of the sea front, which was, for us, perfect, as we spend a lot of time on the beach."

    The cottage has everything you would need for a pleasant stay. I would recommend adding a small folder containing basic instructions for use of such as washer/dryer, dishwasher, heating, TV and video. All other cottages I've stayed in include this. Without this it becomes a matter of trial and error of button pushing, which isn't good for the electrical item you're using. Beds are very comfortable. Heating settings were fine for us, but I wouldn't have known how to change them if needed. Overall a very pleasant stay with a helpful and friendly host. Thank you!

  • "We have had a lovely time at Sunnie Cottage - the location is so close to the harbour with amazing sunsets and very central to all that Seahouses has to offer."

    The beds are small but very comfortable and the cottage is well equipped with everything that you need. The area is fantastic for walking and we managed to go on four separate circular walks from Seahouses. The boat trip to the Farne Islands was fantastic as we were so blessed with the weather. There are quite a few places to eat in Seahouses and we would recommend the restaurant of the caravan park (accessed via the main car park). Good food at good value. Unfortunately we had an overpriced and very average meal in the Bamburgh Castle Inn so would not recommend. On Thursday night there is a quiz night in the Schooner Inn pub which is very close to the cottage and this was such good fun. Thank you to the owners of Sunnie Cottage - 5 friends had a fabulous week!

    Thank you so much for a lovely review and so pleased you had a great stay Just for clarification the beds in the cottage are both standard double beds and a standard single Property Owner

    Cleanliness could have been better i.e. Knives in the knife block were not clean, baking trays looked as if they had never been washed with food baked on. Having a toilet and shower downstairs was good. Parking was good and off road.

  • "Fantastic holiday."

    Ideal location. Cottage very well appointed and equipped. Almost perfect - two slight niggles. Details mention freezer. There wasn’t one, only a freezer compartment in fridge which was very iced up. We arrived with 3 frozen dinners and nowhere to put 2 of them! Fridge adequate for two but would not be for 4 or 5 people. Secondly, although showers were fine, hot water in upstairs basin tap only trickled out.

    Very handy for local pubs, food etc. Some of the cupboards were a bit dusty, and lack of wardrobe space if full occupancy.

    The cottage facilities are modern and well kept, and having the two bathrooms was a bonus. It was equipped with absolutely everything we needed, (we especially liked the bed linens and blinds!). The location was great being in easy walking distance to the town centre and the stunning views and beaches close by. Seahouses is a wonderful place, and also so close to the best beaches and historic places in the country!

    The cottage was really nicely furnished, very warm and clean and the lovely owner, Rona, contacted us beforehand with lots of information which we found most helpful! She was also most thoughtful in welcoming us with a bottle of wine and biscuits with some milk.already in the fridge. Despite staying in January, the weather was great and we were able to visit Bamburgh castle with its fabulous beach, and a few more coastal areas. There were some great fish and chip shops in the village and nice pubs. We took our Ruby Cavalier King Charles and she loved the beaches. She was happy to sleep in the kitchen which had heated flooring! There was wifi in the cottage with a large TV, perfect! Thank you Sykes and Rona, we had a great time and you deserve full marks!

    However, we felt that having paid a lot of money for the week they could have left more than one dishwasher tablet!

The property

A well-appointed terraced cottage, superbly located in the heart of the busy fishing village of Seahouses, far enough from the centre to be peaceful, yet just a short walk away from the harbour and shops.

Providing cosy, comfortable accommodation, this cottage is great for friends and families wishing to visit this popular destination.

With two double bedrooms, a single room with a glimpse of the sea, a bathroom, ground floor shower room, a fully fitted kitchen and welcoming sitting room with dining area, this cottage provides everything you need for that perfect coastal break.

To the rear is a small patio area with table and chairs, and beyond, an open cobbled courtyard where in days gone by the fishermen of Seahouses would gather to mend their nets.

Only a two minute walk from the front door are public seats with wonderful views overlooking the harbour, Farne Islands, Bamburgh Castle and Lindisfarne.

This cottage is centrally located on the Heritage Coast where golden beaches and historical castles can be explored close by, plus further afield are Berwick-upon-Tweed, Edinburgh, Newcastle and Hadrian's Wall.

This cottage is an ideal base for touring this beautiful county.
