Description

A fantastic Northumberland cottage with hot tub!

Hastings House is a 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom detached holiday house which sleeps up to 10 people, 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 sightsee. 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. Catering for 10 - that's big kitchen style catering - huge pans and beautiful white china to serve that celebration meal, even outdoor "crockery & glasses" for the barbie 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.

Reviews

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,

Booked Hastings house to celebrate several milestone birthdays, a great house for couples, very well equipped and of a high standard, we all throughly enjoyed it

Past Customer,

We stayed here for a long weekend in March. The weather was varied but there was plenty to do both inside the house and close by. Fantastically kitted out kitchen- our kids loved the popcorn machine. We cooked Sunday lunch for 10 and it was a breeze due to the space and set up. Lovely little stroll away from Seahouses which has something for all ages. Hot tub was great with really clear instructions,loved that extra towels for hot tub use were provided. Great size house, didn’t feel on top of one another. Bathroom each meant mornings were a breeze. Booking team were great,well organised and plenty of contact options for out of hours if we needed them.

Past Customer,

Brilliant holiday house with attention to detail on what guests need. Even with inclement weather plenty of games and house warm. In a party of 10 female work colleagues for short break, the flexible bed configuration and 5 bathrooms were ideal.Staff from Stay Northumbria very helpful, nothing too much trouble. Would highly recommend this company and Hastings House.

Past Customer,

What a great house. It is so well equipped, clean and comfortable. So perfect for our group of 10. The booking team were excellent too

Past Customer,

The house was perfect for a family of 10. Everything you need and more besides, kids loved the popcorn maker and the hot tub was a great hit. Would defiantly recommend Hasting House for a family get together, so much space for everyone and the area is great.

Past Customer,

We are a group of ladies between 45 and 55 and lead busy lives from mental health nurse teachers oncology nurse travel agent manager all with children so we get away once a year together this is our 7 th year and I have to say this was definitely at the top , Beth who did the welcome meeting was so lovely and informative the place was immaculate comfortable and they had thought of everything we will definitely be back thankyou so much

Past Customer,

Hastings house was even more lovely than the photographs depicted. It was clean, organised and very well equipped. We had a great welcome and the team were happy to make recommendations about the local area. We really enjoyed the hot tub and the kitchen/dining room was a great place to entertain. Unfortunately we could only stay for two of the three nights which detracted slightly from the good value. Overall, I would return to the property and recommend it for groups looking for a very comfortable venue to relax in in a quiet area.

Past Customer,

Our stay at Hastings House was excellent, it was very clean

Past Customer,

A beautiful property conveniently situated for the delights of the Northumberland coast and countryside.It is extremely well equipped, and comfortable, with lots of space. Highly recommended.

Past Customer,

Wonderful property with everything we needed for a group of 8 adults celebrating an 80th birthday. The property is an easy walk to the Main Street and harbour where there are a number of shops, bars and restaurants. The early morning walk to Bamburgh and back along the beach was so good we did it twice.

Past Customer,

A stunning house, which was well equipped, particularly the kitchen. Comfortable and clean and beautiful views of the countryside and sea. The hot tub was well used! Everything we needed for a fantastic family holiday for ten people and one dog! Would highly recommend it.

Past Customer,

A marvellous holiday in an extremely well equipped, spacious

Past Customer,

Gorgeous house, lovely views and very well equipped, Stay Northumbria are very helpful

Past Customer,

Lovely house, almost too tidy and well fitted (a week with four kids meant fear that we’d spoil something accidentally.. we didn’t though!). We had unlucky weather so hot tub got less use than we had planned but was still a great perk. That part of Northumbriais lovely, many more great day trips than we had realised when booking, and we liked Seahouses. Worked really well for a multi family trip - 4 kids aged 6-9, 4 parents, one granny...

Past Customer,

We were 10 adults
