Hastings House is a 5 bedroomed, 5 bathroomed detached holiday house which sleeps up to 10 people (+1 on a Z-bed), plus 2 cots for infants. Well behaved pets are also welcome.
It is ideally situated to appreciate the facilities offered by the village of Seahouses, and is ideal as a base to explore further afield, whether you wish to walk, golf, dive, birdwatch, horse ride, visit a castle or two, a historical garden or just generally sight see.
This purpose built holiday house has been designed to provide the very best in holiday accommodation and this has been reflected in it being awarded the highest accolade from Visit Britain - 5 * Gold Award along with their Pets, Walkers, Cyclists and Families welcome awards.
Whether you are looking to relax and chill out in our Hot Tub - which has been done even in the midst of a November hail storm by one group of guests - or you prefer to use the house as a base for summer walking, family get togethers, or to spend time with friends from across the miles who you've not seen in a while - there is everything you need.
Catering for 11 - that's big kitchen style catering - huge pans for the "spag bol", and beautiful white china to serve that celebration meal, even outdoor "crockery & glasses" for the barby or pop it in the wicker basket for a beach picnic. Check out the ice-cream maker, bread machine and 30 cup water boiler too!
Space for everyone, our bedrooms aren't massive but they have everything you'll need with flexible beds - super kingsize doubles or twins, 3 have ensuite shower rooms, and with a further family bathroom upstairs, and a family shower room downstairs, this means each bedroom has its own facilities.
There are 7 televisions, yes 7, in the property, each bedroom, the lounge and the dining room, the latter being connected to two independent sky packages, there's also a DVD player and a playstation.
In the lounge library you'll find not only a good range of books and paperbacks (feel free to do swaps with those you've brought and read), but also Playstation games, cd's and DVD's.

|WOW what a place, in one word FANTASTIC. You have gone the extra mile to ensure that all needs are catered for. The weather has ben good, cold but dry which helps. The two seperate SKY packages kept everyone from young and old amused kids cartoons, adult movies and sport. The welcome pack was a very nice touch and quickly consumed. Went for lovely walks on Seahouses, Beadnell and Newton by the Sea beaches sampling the local food and ale at The Ship in Newton. Hastings House will be highly recommended to family & friends.
