Cross the road in front of the house and you reach the sand dunes and two spectacular miles of sandy beaches. Within a five minute easy walk, you reach Seahouses harbour and village centre with a wide choice of restaurants, pubs, coffee shops and tea rooms as well as a well-stocked supermarket and selection of gift shops.

Reviews

Seaton is in an idyllic location opposite the most gorgeous stretch of coastline and the pictures on the website really don't do it justice. The house is very comfortable and well equipped with a very nice garden .

Past Customer,

Our third visit did not disappoint. Seaton is a well appointed and comfortable property. Perfect outlook to the Farnes and huge enclosed garden.

Past Customer,

Seaton is part of a large semi, 1920s at a guess, which has been cleverly sliced into two. Downstairs is a through sitting room/diner/kitchen; the former has splendid views across to the Farne Islands and the latter is extremely well equipped. Lots of crockery, cutlery, pots and pans etc. The oven is good, as is the dishwasher. It could do with a bigger cafetière and some of the kitchen knives could have been sharper, but otherwise you couldn’t ask for more. The bedrooms are lovely; again, the front ones have magnificent views, though the back ones are compensated by looking over the massive lawned back garden, surrounded by hedges laden with rose hips while we were there. We didn’t try the swings, but the garden would be a gloriously safe environment for energetic children. The stairs up to the bedrooms on the second floor are steep and narrow, and there isn’t a loo on that floor. People of limited mobility should stick to the first floor, which has a well equipped bathroom; the shower is over the bath but works well. Downtown Seahouses is less than 10 minutes walk along the sea front. On the face of it, a rather tacky seaside town with tat shops and amusement arcades. It has two good pubs though (Olde Ship and Bamburgh Castle), a well stocked Co-Op, decent baker and butcher, and a fantastic fish shop that has its own smokehouse. The fish and chip shops aren’t Whitby standard, but the one we went to was perfectly decent. The harbour is the starting point for lots of boat trips. We took a long one, through the Farne Islands to look at the seabirds and seals, then on to Holy Island. All well worth it. The beaches and coastal walks are magnificent, and are well supplied with good pubs; the Ship at Low Newton being an absolute classic. We have no hesitation in recommending Seaton. I’d be amazed to find anywhere else in that part of the world of such generous size (four bedrooms) that’s as good.

Past Customer,

We had the most amazing time at Seaton! The location is perfect... waking up each morning looking at the sea with the Farne Islands in the distance is really amazing as is watching the sunset over Banburgh Castle from the lounge! When we arrived at Seaton there were whoops of delight from the children when they saw the beautiful garden with so much space and swings rope ladder to climb! Inside the house is beautiful with everything you could think of provided! Harry the dog enjoyed his goodie bag ...thank you! Every part of the house exceptionally clean and very comfortable with a lovely homely feel to it. Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday we would love to be back next year!

Past Customer,

This is the third time we’ve stayed in this house (we = extended family dog) and we intend booking it again, which must say a lot for our opinion of the house. The house is large, with space to spread out downstairs (great for the grandchildren with all their toys) and still room for the grown-ups. The house has an excellent location, looking out from the lounge windows onto the Farne Islands and Bamburgh (as long as the sea fret hasn’t set in!). It is a few minutes walk north onto the sandy beach, sand dunes and rocky shore, or south to the town. The garden is huge, mostly laid to lawn but with various trees and shrubs too - it’s completely enclosed so is an excellent safe area for children and dogs, who spent many hours there in the sunshine. The off-street very secure gated parking (for four cars) is a bonus.

Past Customer,
