The Moriarty Family, Nov 2014
Lovely cottage location perfect for us and our dog. Useful path for us to take the dog for a walk. Seahouses is a lovely place and people really friendly. Disappointed trip to Lindisfarne was canceled but had a good trip round the islands and saw lots of seals. Would love to come back.
The Turners, Nov 2014
A lovely cottage and a very enjoyable stay. Good location for beach and harbour and a great base to explore the area. Weather great too for end of October. Would love to stay again.
Richard, Anne, Matthew and Holly, Oct 2014
Our 3rd visit to this lovely cottage. Weather was great and the family enjoyed fabulous beach walks especially Bamburgh and Embleton. Alnwick gardens and a visit to Barter Books is always a favourite. Hope to be back next year.
Moriarty Family, Oct 2014
Lovely cottage. Very relaxing holiday. Lots of lovely walk despite murky weather. Definitely looking at booking up again in the future.
John and Shona, Sep 2014
We had a very enjoyable week. Seahouses is an ideal base to visit some lovely places. Thew weather helped. Sunny and warm. Plenty of places to go to. The cottage is comfortable and has everything you need. We would love to return.
The Sprights, Sep 2014
We had a fantastic stay in this lovely cottage. Had some great day out in Bamburgh, Alnwick gardens and local beaches which are beautiful. A very relaxing holiday and we look forward to returning.
Stead Family, Aug 2014
We all had a fantastic week. We visited Craster and Dunstanburgh Castle, Howick gardens with wonderful guide Peter and had Earl Grey tea at the earls wonderful home. Many dogs allowed in small area. Lovely walks on beach and wonderful crab and kippers from the smokery next door again. Didn't win at the pub quiz on Thursday night but still had a great time with some locals. All good.
A, R & C, Jul 2014
An enjoyable stay in a comfortable and well equipped cottage in a good location, we'd like to return.
The Kirkmans, Jul 2014
Going out and about by car? get a copy of "follow me through North Northumbria Days out bu Keith Taylor" A wonderful guide with very readable information and beautiful photographs. Even we didn't get lost following the directions. This is available to buy £5.99 from The Schooner pub just up the road from here. A proper boozers pub with sport on large screen T.V
Terry, Helen and Dogs, Jun 2014
Another enjoyable week revisiting all our favourite haunts from this lovely base in Sunniside Square
The weather has helped us enjoy our annual 'fix' of Northumberland Heres to the next time.
Jose and Brian, Jun 2014
Lovely cottage, great location and very cosy.
Visited Bamburgh Castle, Barter Books (great on a rainy day) and Howick Hall and Gardens. Howick Hall is a great Gem of a place and one of my favourite gardens and I've visited lots! Weather been mixed but we love Seahouses rain or shine!
Knowles Family, May 2014

The Nelsons, Sep 2013
Another lovely week in Seahouses a great trip out to Farne Islands. No1 Sunniside is clean comfortable and warm- Thanks.
Brian and Jose, Sep 2013
My Wife has been to Seahouses for many years but its my first time, every time my wife has been its thrown it down. But not this year. Had a fantastic week with fantastic weather, all got sun-burned.
Beautiful part of the Country. Fantastic sea and sands. Bamburgh Castle is awesome. Everybody very welcoming. Will be coming back.
Andy, Kerry, Thomas and Molly, Aug 2013
A lovely cosy cottage in a beautiful location.
We enjoyed lots of walks along the beaches. We visited North Berwick, Tallaton Castle, Bamburgh, Holy Island, Dunstanburgh Castle and enjoyed a boat ride out to the Farne Isles.
Our 6 year old daughter loved crabbing and rock pooling in the harbour.
The weather has been lovely all week.
We would definitely visit again and will recommend Sunnieside Square (1) to our friends and family.
The Smith Family, Aug 2013
Lovely cottage, great place! Had lots and lots of walks - so relaxing. Our dog Milo enjoyed his first holiday. Hope to come back soon.
Jayne, Mathew, Andrew and Milo, Jul 2013
Been here 4 times now and enjoyed it every time!
The weather has been fabulous all week and we have completely relaxed, as have our two dogs, Rags and Molly.
This morning down on the beach in Seahouses Harbour I proposed to my fiance Jan, and she said YES!
Beat that for a holiday!
Jan, Kevin, Rags and Molly, Jul 2013
Our 1st stay @ 1 Sunnieside Square, has been relaxing and enjoyable.
The light airy well appointed cottage with it's delightful courtyard contributed greatly to the state of mind.
The weather was glorious so we watered the plants and de-headed the lovely pansies!!
Thank you - we certainly hope to return.
David and Aileen Halstead - Huddersfield, Jul 2013
We've been coming to this part of Northumberland for the last 10-12 years (staying in B&B) so No1 Sunnieside Square has been a real "find". It's central yet quiet location was ideal for us as a base to do all the touristy things previously mentioned here. For those who like that sort of thing - a slog up to "Cheviot" makes a good day out.
Kind weather has helped to make our stay here a memorable one.
Jose & Brian Essex, Jul 2012
Once again we have enjoyed our stay at 1 Sunnieside Square. Comfortable as before.
Taken trips to Craster, Preston Towers and Bamburgh. Hope to be back. Still very good meals at The Black Swan. Nice Pansies in garden area.
B & D Lovett and Otis , Jun 2012
Great Cottage, very clean and warm close for everything needed.
The Olde Ship public house is a real ale lovers dream.
We loved the area and will be returning to this cottage next August.
P.S. This was our first holiday with a dog and it was a success, Thank You
Martin, Kate & Jack Nr Bath, Jun 2012
Cottage met our needs perfectly, nice quiet square, with easy and secure parking.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will book again.
Seahouses has plenty to offer, as does most of Northumberland.
I hope whoever is here next enjoys it as much as we have.
Kevin & Jan Rags & Molly, Jun 2012
Had a great week, cottage very comfortable, good food at Links hotel and Black Swan. Love Seahouses will be back soon.
Di and Tony (Holly our Border Terrier), Jun 2011
Excellent cottage in the very best part of Seahouses. Good to see an active busy harbour. Made much use of Swallows smokery.
Bamburgh Castle is an astonishing place and needs to be visited with Cragside to get the full picture of that amazing man William Armstrong.
Lindisfarne Castle was very appealing and the Priory well documented.
We had two bracing swims off the rocks in the bay south of Seahouses, watched by hundreds of birds.
A long walk along the beautiful coastline from Beadnell to Dunstanburgh Castle and back.
Excellent Grace Darling museum at Bamburgh.
A delightful week
Richard and Biddy Trahair, Jun 2011
Delightful cottage, really clean, tidy, and comfortable, lived up to our expectations, will recommend it highly.
Lovely coastline, although weather really cold, bright and invigorating.
Lots of good eating places would recommend Blacketts in Bamburgh for a lovely, leisurely lunch.
We will be back.
Sandy & Janis Nelson North Lanarkshire, Feb 2011
Nice cottage. We had a good time.
Paul & Liz, Nov 2010
Sunnieside cottage has been a very nice place to stay. It is well equipped, cosy and just what you need for a relaxing break. We have had a marvoullous time and "Boab" our dog loved his walks on the beach. We will be back.
Stephen, Marion and "Boab" Spence Glasgow, Nov 2010
Lovely cottage, very cosy. Had a brilliant time enjoying all our old haunts in this area. First time at Chillingham Castle, Brilliant for our two grandchildren.
Weather chilly but that didn't stop us spending time on our two favourite beaches, Cullernose Point and Alnmouth.
Anne, John, Bev, Vaughan, and Billy Doncaster, Oct 2010
We have enjoyed our long weekend at Seahouses.
The cottage is lovely and the local people are very friendly.
There is plenty to do and see and the local walks are beautiful. We will definetly come back
Martin & Janis, Sep 2010
We have enjoyed our week here. Our last holiday in this area was 1987, and we have revisited many old haunts, and a few new ones. The weather has been mostly good, much better than the forecast.
The cottage is very comfortable and spacious. We were delighted to discover its close proximity to the harbour. The ample seating provided was appreciated.
Vic and Racheal Green + Sammy the dog Derby, Aug 2010
A very nice stay with our 18 month old daughter.
Places we visited - Bamburgh Castle, Alnwick Gardens, Berwick, Amble and plenty of beaches.
The cottage was good. Hope to come back soon.
Niomi, Mat & Izzy, Jun 2010
Good base to explore this beautiful coast line.
A good week except the cold wind. Going home tired but very relaxrd.
Karen & Tony Wright (Norfolk) + Rosie & Alice, May 2010
We have enjoyed our short break. It was interesting to be back in Sunnieside Square 1 again after our first stay at Seahouses 12 years ago. Since then we have always stayed at Cliff House Cottages! It is always good to be back in Seahouses!
The Godfreys Ravenshead Notts, Apr 2010
A good place to stay. Very close to the beach and harbour. We enjoyed going to the Farne Islands, Alnwick Gardens, Barter Books (which was really good) Bamburgh Castle, Dunstanburgh Castle, and our walks on the beach.
A very clean and tidy place to stay and good that it welcomes dogs.
The Flynn Family Leeds, Aug 2009
Only 50 yards outside the courtyard and you are on the top of the harbour wall, where seating is provided so you can while away the hours watching the toings and froings of harbour life, or stretch your legs on the beautiful beaches which run North and South and are ideal for leisurely walks, or for those more adventurous try the 6 mile return beach walk to Bamburgh, or the 14 mile return journey to Newton by the Sea (great pub awaits for the mid walk break).
The cottage is close to all the village amenities - shops, butchers, bakers (no candlestick maker tho), pubs & restaurants, newsagents, petrol station, library, resource centre for internet access, takeaways, and the harbour where you can leave on excursions to visit the Farne Islands, to see Puffins (June & July), Grey Seals and many other species of birds. The area is popular with birdwatchers and photographers.
Just 2.5 miles up the coast by road is Bamburgh and its wonderful castle on a rocky outcrop overlooking the beach, and 15 miles south you'll find Alnwick Castle and Garden a popular spot for those with green fingers, and Harry Potter fans (the castle was Hogwarts and the site of the quiddich pitch in the 1st two films).
