For a delightful holiday in historic Seahouses, this charming and cosy cottage near the harbour is the ideal base for an exploration of historic and breath-taking Northumberland at any time of year.

This lovely, cosy, three bedroom cottage is located in the heart of the historic harbour area in Seahouses. As the name suggests, the cottage was once owned by the local Herring Master himself and is placed adjacent to one of the few remaining herring yards (no longer used, of course) in the village. Centrally located and with its own, off road parking, Herring Master’s Cottage is only a very short walk to the wonderful harbour, as well as the village centre with its wide range of shops, superb restaurants and friendly local bars!

Magnificent Bamburgh Castle (N.B. Discount is available for Cottages in Northumberland guests) is within sight from Seahouses beach and only a two minute drive away. The lovely beach and sweeping bay at Beadnell is a two minute drive in the opposite direction. Trips to The Farne Islands, days out in nearby Low Newton and Craster with their walks to Dunstanburgh Castle, trips to Alnwick Castle and Gardens, Holy Island and so much more are all on your doorstep. Herring Master’s Cottage is a great base from which you can explore all that stunning Northumberland has to offer.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

Very clean and well looked after, everything a short walk locally. Scooner Pub has live entertainment every weekend.The Black Swan Pub does a lovey Sunday Lunch well worth visiting both right on your doorstep.

Herring Master's Cottage is exceptionally comfortable, clean and well equipped with everything we needed and more. We enjoyed being in the town centre with 4 pubs within a 2 minute walk. The Olde Ship is very cosy and does lovely food. We loved being close to fantastic beaches, our dogs legs are 2 inches shorter from all the walks to Bamburgh and BRead moreeadnell! We enjoyed a visit to Holy Island too. We will definitely look to visit again as we had such a great week we have already recommended the cottage. Hide

Herring Masters is in a very good location. The cottage had a very good kitchen, lounge, upstairs & bathroom. We took a fabulous walk from Seahouses to Bamburgh. Beautiful scenery. Great boat trip - we saw lots of seals.

Really nice cottage. Ideal for the pubs as only about twenty yards from cottage and close to harbour and shops and restaurants. We would stay here again.

Cottage was fantastic, was central to town. The Bamburgh Inn hotel is a great place to eat and drink.

Herring Master is a smart property, with a large parking space and large rooms. Great location just around the corner from the harbour. Off -road parking is a huge bonus on the very narrow lanes of Seahouses. Our favourite activities here are: Walking from Craster to Dunstanburgh then eating an Auctermuchtie (hot bacon and haggis roll)from the fooRead mored van in the ca rpark. Crabbing at Beadnell harbour. A visit to Embleton beach. Boat trip to the Farnes. Pub quizzes in the pubs around the corner, in the Schooner Inn on Wednesday night and the Black Swan on Thursday night. Pizza at Elan restaurant. Hide

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.
