We really loved Creel Cottage. There was lots of room for a small family - our daughter loved the bunk beds- and it felt cosy and welcoming. The location was fantastic with the harbour so close, wonderful walks and lots of lovely places to eat nearby. We didnt use the wood burner as it was lovely and warm, but wed love to return in cooler months soRead more we can enjoy that too. Highly recommend! Hide

This is a great place to stay, the harbour and a great number of places to eat are within walking distance, a decent supermarket is literally 5 mins walk away. The cottage was clean and on the whole well kept, the oven and hob are showing their age and really need replacing. Beds were comfy and warm. Parking is a bind but once you've done it once oRead morer twice you find a groove and its easily done, especially as my other half watching me back in. Like all these places it has it quirks. Hide

The cottage was extremely well equipped, it was comfortable and had a very spacious master bedroom. When we arrived the cottage was spotless and sanitised. Location was brilliant, a few minutes walk to the harbour and services , and the main road to other towns and attractions was very close by. Even so it was in a very quiet location. Any challengRead morees? Well the stairs are steep and tight for us oldies and parking was a challenge but that is clear upfront. All in all its an attractive property Hide

A lovely cosy cottage very close to the harbour in Seahouses. We found it bigger than we expected from the photographs - the living room and master bedroom are both a good size. The second bedroom is extremely small, but our 7yo and 5yo loved having a bunk bed. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathroom is fine. The stairs are steep, but they haRead moreve good grips on the fronts and were no problem at all for us or the children. The parking space is quite snug - even our C-Max overhung a bit! Hide

Its a nice cottage in a great location. The toilet being downstairs is an inconvenience rather than a problem The parking is a problem if your car is bigger than a small hatchback, the town car parks are rammed during the day and empty at night if that helps

If you’re looking for a seaside holiday with a difference, visit Northumberland – a region brimming with beautiful golden, sandy beaches, rolling hills, craggy moorland, bustling market towns and fishing villages, and more castles than in any other county in England.

Situated in the North East of England, this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty boasts no less than 39 miles of unspoilt coastline to explore and a calendar packed with exhilarating water sports options. To indulge in a spot of surfing, kayaking or powerboating, take a trip to one of the many breath-taking Northumberland beaches - where dogs love a good walk and fresh local seafood is never far away.

Home to the awe-inspiring Cheviot Hills and the historical Hadrian’s Wall, the Northumberland National Park is renowned for its open spaces, award-winning Dark Skies and stunning rural backdrops - and is the least populated national park in Britain. Offering access to challenging hikes, horse-riding, rock-climbing and a multitude of other action-packed activities, the park is one of the region’s greatest draws.

There is a huge range of spectacular wildlife and sea life waiting to be sighted, whether you take a boat ride to the Farne Islands to admire the colony of Atlantic grey seals and puffins, or explore the Kielder Water and Forest Park, home to magnificent ospreys. If it’s history you’re looking for, the imposing Bamburgh Castle and the world-famous Alnwick Castle are undoubtedly worth a visit.

Alternatively, if you’re seeking the bright lights of a city adventure, Newcastle upon Tyne is the place to go. Here, you can experience world-class culture, outstanding attractions, superb shopping, impressive live shows, top entertainers and delicious cuisine in abundance.
