Had a lovely time. We were met by Christopher who was lovely he had put the lights on and fire was lit when we got there which made it very welcoming and warm. Very nice house and in a lovely situation by the sea great for the grandchilren. Our second visit to this house but with the previous owners. It was just as we had remembered 6 years ago. Thank you for all your help.we will be back again.

Past Customer,

Seacot is a perfect base for exploring the Northumbria Coast for a larger group. Being the first time 3 generations were together for a holiday, a large comfortable house was just what we needed and Seacot was ideal for this. Very clean and with all the added extras (including buckets and spades) which were needed

Past Customer,

We had a wonderful stay in Northumberland, Beadnell was the perfect base to explore the coastline. The house was well equipped and beautifully situated, it suited our larger party well. We really had a wonderful, relaxed stay for my Dad’s 60th. Our only hesitation on booking again was the house wasn’t overly clean - we had to clean baths before use and the kitchen was quite grubby, lots of plates/cutlery had been put back dirty. It didn’t ruin our stay, and a quick clean easily sorted it but if you pay to stay somewhere you expect high levels of cleanilness. There also wasn’t any option for recycling which was a bit disappointing - just one big waste bin.
