  • "This is our third time staying at Inveray, we love it!"

    The house has plenty of room, lovely decor throughout, super comfy beds, great shower, well stocked kitchen, private driveway for our large Volvo, garden for our dog to have a roam around, a real home from home. You can easily walk to the beach and town and the owners left a bottle of Prosecco and lemon drizzle cake which was much appreciated and a lovely touch

    You’re more than welcome. Glad you had a great week ☺️ Property Owner

  • "The property was better than expected in the photos."

    My only suggestion is some new pillows on the king sized bed. Everything else was great - plenty room, clean, great location. We visit Seahouses every year and we booked this property whilst there for next March too!

    March is a lovely month, so pleased you enjoyed Inveray and we welcome you back in 2025 like many of our return guests. Property Owner

  • "We have stayed at the cottage a few times now."

    We find it well positioned for walks, bus service and amenities. We have a dog so the enclosed garden is a big plus. Our stay was early January so weather was a factor, but we got out every day. The cottage is cosy and comfortable. The heating was used a lot but it was warm throughout. Plenty hot water. There is also a fire you can lite. Overall a cosy cottage with parking for 2 cars comfortably.

    Glad you had another comfy and cosy stay and made the most of the coastline. The view from the lounge window always entices you out whatever the window. Property Owner

    This was our second visit and I’m sure it won’t be our last. Thank you for the welcome gifts too! The Christmas decorations were great too!

    You’re more than welcome. Glad you had a great time and enjoyed the festive extra’s. Hope to see you again soon. Best wishes for 2024. Property Owner

  • "After a long journey from the Midlands we really appreciated the bottle of Prosecco and biscuits left by the owner."

    The house was ideal for us - spacious rooms, comfortable furniture and beds and a private enclosed garden which was safe for our dog. Only about 10 minutes walk into the town and an even shorter walk across the golf course to the huge beach. This was our first holiday in Northumberland but certainly won't be our last. We hope to be able to stay at Inveray again.

    Of course, we welcome you back anytime you wish. That's one of our favourite walks, straight across the golf course to one of the more secluded less known beaches. Property Owner

  • "We have visited Seahouses annually for several years but this was our first time staying at Inveray."

    It was perfectly located for us as the dog loves his early morning walk across the golf course to the beach and this property is literally opposite with great views. The garden is a lovely suntrap which proved very handy this year with the unusually hot weather. The house is large and comfortably furnished and handy for walking to shops,pubs etc. Unusually for Seahouses,it also has ample parking with a drive you can actually fit a large car on and space outside as well. While we were there,the owner rang us as the previous guests had experienced issues with the cleaning and she wanted to check everything was ok when we arrived (it was). We enjoyed our stay and would definitely book again in the future when we are travelling with just one dog and not our larger rabble!!

    Glad you had a great time - you had fabulous weather. Even when its windy though the back garden is really calm and sheltered. Property Owner

  • "Overall a nice property,but ther were a few niggly things that annoyed me."

    In all our many years of renting a cottage in the UK I have never had to provide own dishwasher tablets ( there is always 6/7 provided), no cloths for wiping work tops, no bath mat, I could go on. Trivial I know but annoying.

    Thanks for taking time to talk to me today Alison, I have used a different cleaning co for your booking, and although they left a little cleaning box, they didn’t leave the dishwasher tablets, jay-cloth and presecco like I do. So apologies. Just checked in with present guests and all is good. Property Owner

  • "A fantastic holiday home with beautiful views to the sea."

    Everything you need for a family holiday. The house was beautifully clean on arrival. Bedrooms all good sizes with comfortable beds, good bathroom facilities and the kitchen had everything needed for a self-catering holiday. The back garden is a lovely little sun trap in the afternoon. The location is perfect for exploring, with the short walk to the beach making this an ideal holiday stay. Our only comments would be that unfortunately the freezer was still full of previous visitors food when we arrived, and an extra armchair would have been useful in the living room for us all to sit comfortably. However, these did not impact on our holiday, and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend or rebook the property. Thank you for a lovely stay!

  • "The property itself was just what we required, the beds were comfortable, bed linen and towels very good."

    There were a few pieces of crockery which were a little dirty and two things in the oven which had the remains of cooked bacon(?) on them, requiring an instant wash. The freezer needs replacing. I think we may have missed the bin collection as it was not clear when bins would be collected. The property is in a really good position, close to beach and Seahouses town with a lovely view and abundance of walks around the area.

    Thank you for your feedback, I was waiting for a response from the customer relations team following the damage I reported to my property on your check-out. There is a welcome guide which outlines the bin collections (Wednesday). Yes, the property is really well positioned (I like to drink my morning coffee and look at the sea, from either the garden of lounge). I take care to provide good linen and towels, the damaged fridge door has been repaired and I look forward to welcoming one of my many returning guests later this month. Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed a few days in this lovely property."

    It was spotlessly clean and had everything you could possibly need for your stay. The sea view from the lounge window was mesmerising and I spent a few relaxing hours just watching the waves roll into shore. The log burner was a blessing as the weather was very cold and after our daily dog walk, it was wonderful to settle down in one of the old chairs (which we loved), to warm up.Given the chance my little Dachshund would have spent the whole day toasting himself in front of it! It was a real home from home. Very comfortable and welcoming and I would certainly recommend anyone to stay here. We will definitely be returning.
