Not least, because it is only a few minutes' walk to the vast beautiful beach between Seahouses and Bamburgh Castle, which is so lovely it has been used in many film locations, including The Last Kingdom. And, of course, we are only a picturesque 20 minute drive to Alnwick Gardens and Castle of Harry Potter and Downton Abbey fame. This beautifully decorated, spacious, detached house is ideal for family get-togethers, friends' reunions, celebrations, activity breaks or weekends away with the girls; whether you want to snuggle around the woodburner (logs included), dig sandcastles, enjoy the fresh air of the wonderful coast and countryside, play golf, experience the heritage of bustling Seahouses's harbour, explore historic castles or relax and have a treatment at Seahouse's Ocean Club beauty spa. Summer or winter there is something for everyone and many guests return time and time again. With parking for up to 5 cars on a private drive, getting together is very easy for a long weekend, or a longer holiday. Our stylish holiday retreat is very child and dog friendly, but lovely for adult groups too. It comfortably sleeps 11 in five bedrooms and is equipped to a very high standard (we have been awarded a Visit Britain Five Star Award). There are very comfy John Lewis beds in all the rooms, with crisp white linen and fluffy towels. There is also a proper z bed for the eleventh guest and travel cots are available for babies The house is warm, bright, clean and has a fully-fitted contemporary kitchen with granite work tops, solid oak flooring and access to the utility/laundry room. In the light-filled kitchen/dining area we've provided a large table, along with plenty of crockery, cutlery, glasses and serving dishes, so it is perfect for family meals, birthday celebrations, anniversaries or parties. We think we've thought of everything you might need, from a cocktail shaker to chopsticks. With a large extra fridge in the garage, there is plenty of room to chill drinks too. The spacious layout makes it ideal for friends or family gatherings of all generations. In the 30ft living room there are huge squishy sofas, free unlimited Wi-Fi, a 40 inch TV (with free view and a DVD player) and a cosy wood burning stove (logs included). The cottage is very child and baby friendly with cots, stairgates, highchairs, as well as toys, books, jigsaws, DVDs and games for all ages. The house is dog-friendly too. There is a private fenced and gated secure garden with a patio and lawned area. And for the beach, there are buckets and spades in the garage. All high quality linen, white bath towels, hand towels, tea towels, apron, dishcloths, logs and heating are included. We have lots of parking with a large double garage and big drive.The enclosed garden has a John Lewis table and chairs for outdoor dining on sunny summer days. There is a Weber barbeque. The house is in a quiet location on the edge of Seahouses with views to Bamburgh Castle, but it is only a ten-minute flat stroll along the coast path, which has lovely views to the Farne Islands, to the bustling, heritage harbour of Seahouses where you can enjoy a drink in the famous Ship Inn, buy kippers and fresh seafood at the renowned smokery and browse the shops.More

About the neighbourhood
Seahouses is a busy fishing village with miles of golden beaches. It has shops and a supermarket for everyday needs, There are pubs and restaurants too. A fabulous fresh fish shop sells prawns caught just off the coast and the area's world famous kippers. The Ship Inn is arguably the best pub in the world! A day trip to Holy Island, the cradle of Christianity is not to be missed, along with a boat ride to the Farne Islands where up to 70,000 puffins turn up each year. Children will love seeing the seals there too. Nearby villages like Bamburgh with its fabulous Castle and Beadnell offer more fabulous beaches. There are breathtaking golf courses along the entire coast where guest players are welcome. Stables within walking distance of Sunshine House offer riding lessons and beach rides. ...
Getting around
The most convenient way to see local sights is by car. But it is worth knowing that trains to Edinburgh run regularly from our nearby train stations. Alnmouth (25 minutes drive approx) and Berwick upon Tweed (40 minutes drive approx). Both stations have parking. The area is also great for cycling and we have a large garage for bike security.
