Reviews

Beautiful house with everything we needed for a family get together. Brilliant location. Looking for an excuse to come back!

Rowan T,

The property was very well equipped and had plenty of space for ten adults and an infant. The outside space was secure and safe. There was ample parking for five cars. The beds were comfortable and everyone appreciated having access to their own bathrooms. There was plenty of hot water at all times. The instructions for the house and the welcome visit from a member of staff were all good. One of the best houses we have holidayed in and near to lots of places we love. Hastings House was one of the best holiday homes I have ever booked. It accommodated ten adults, an infant and a dog in comfort. It was very well equipped and beautifully presented. I would highly recommend the property. We also received an excellent service from Stay Northumbria. Hastings House was one of the best holiday homes I have ever booked.

Mrs C R,

An excellent property which has everything you need. It is a perfect design for a large party and very well equipped in every room. The basket of tea, coffee and biscuits was a lovely welcome touch. The location is quiet in the old part of the village about 15/20 mins walk into Seahouses. There is a good coastal bus service and a bus stop just a couple of minutes away. We enjoyed local walks from the property to Beadnell and Bambrough both of which are on the bus route to catch a bus back. All in all a great place to stay.

Past Customer,

Very enjoyable holiday for all the family. Stay Northumbria were very helpful and the property was very good and had everything one would need.

Past Customer,
