    Originally converted from a traditional grain store, this cute cottage was owned by a local stone mason (hence the name), and in its time has been home to fisher folk, and local residents. Recently it has been lovingly created into a bright and airy 2 bedroom holiday cottage sleeping 4. With all that you'll need to use as a base from which to explore the area, and although the cottage has TV and DVD we bet you spend most of your time watching the to-ings and fro-ings of harbour life. They've even created a great vantage point in the master bedroom with this purpose in mind. This property welcomes non-smokers. Dog Welcome. Wi-fi

    "The location of the property is excellent being on the active harbour and easy walking into the village centre. Holiday booked through Stay Northumbria Ltd and their contact and information was excellent without being over communicative. The cottage was as described, well decorated and with new equipment throughout. Obviously well cared for just much, much smaller than we expected. Double bedroom and a separate twin, both being reasonable sizes..............The kitchen was extremely small.................... The downstairs bathroom became a problem during the night, the stairs being, steep and the tread narrow.............. The accommodation was very good value but given the above we would not re-book. Would recommend Seahouses as a holiday destination and also Stay Northumbria without hesitation."

    Mr McNamee - Sep 2014

    "Wonderful beach for relaxing, running, walking, practising dancing and exercising for all the family including the four legged ones.Our photos are of our family who came to visit for a day from Hexham to enjoy the beach and freedom for their dogs and to show our grandchildren where we met."
