Great location Very clean and quite cottage Lovely decoration, especially in the bedrooms Parking can be quite difficult especially if bringing 2 cars Excellent place for children

We had an excellent stay in Hexham Cottage. It's in a central, easy to find location at the end of a narrow street. There's a car parking space directly outside the cottage and we managed to park two cars nearby without any bother. The neighbours were very friendly and offered to move their cars if we needed more space - which we didn't. The cottagRead moree is nicely decorated with quality fittings including a decent sized Samsung TV and large 'Smeg' fridge. The small wood burning stove in the comfy lounge pumps out a lot of heat and was very welcome during the freezing cold weather when we visited. The large double bedroom has a big cupboard / wardrobe and all the bedrooms were warm and comfortable. The electric shower over the bath was hot and powerful. There are lots of very good bars and restaurants just a short walk from the cottage and it's well located for visiting Bamburgh and the Cheviot Hills. We'd have preferred a heater in the kitchen but overall we found Hexham Cottage to be ideal for our visit to Seahouses. Hide

Hexham Cottage is full of good quality , tasteful furniture and fittings. It is close to all local amenities but still very quiet. Seahouses is a friendly village with some good places to eat and drink. Lots of historic places to explore and some wonderful walks.

Hexham is a lovely cottage, clean and modern interiors, good facilities. Excellent location for amenities and the beaches for dog walking. Only downside is the car parking, although dedicated space sometimes difficult to get to depending on how others park, have to reverse up the narrow street.

The cottage is well situated, close to the harbour and to local shops. It is an ideal base from which to explore the area. We found it to be very clean and warm and to contain everything that could be reasonably required for a comfortable and relaxing break.

We took our first visit to Northumberland in August and used Hexham Cottage in Seahouses as our base. I travelled with my husband, two children, dog and my parents. The Cottage is located at the end of a lovely quiet road, and there is space for one car to parallel park outside the cottage. We did note from the website description, that a parking pRead moreermit would be available for the car park in Seahouses and this was fine for us. The Cottage has a little porch, which was ideal for all our shoes and had lots of hooks for all the coats - much needed when holidaying in the UK. There is a lovely large living room, with two huge sofas - which could accommodate us all. The TV has freeview and a DVD player - there is also a good selection of books to borrow. The kitchen is very well equipped and on arrival - tea and coffee had been provided. There was nothing that was missing. It also had a small under stairs cupboard, with a washing machine, hoover etc. This was a useful space to store some of the beach and dog stuff. Upstairs, there were two double rooms and a single room with bunk beds. There was drawer space in each room - the only hanging space was in the main room. There was a huge walk-in wardrobe, which we all used. There was also lots of hangers. The beds were really comfortable and very clean, as were the lovely fluffy white towels that were provided. Again the bathroom was lovely and bright - the shower was powerful, hot and easy to negotiate! A couple of niggles was that the toilet roll holder, was a bit far from the loo and a shelf over the sink would be useful! (but minor points!) The Cottage had a reliable and fast wifi speeds. We had several apple devices which could all connect at the same time - handy for us to plan our trips out. Despite the Cottage being dog friendly, it was very clean and no doggy smells! We had one minor issue with the missing car parking permit when we arrived, but the care taker of the property was very friendly and helped to resolve this. We also met the neighbour, who was kind and friendly. To summarise, we had a great stay in the cottage and I would recommend this to others. The only point to be aware of is that the cottage - has no garden or yard. I discovered this when researching the property on Google maps - but I think it does need highlighting on the website - particularly if you need somewhere to let a dog out. However, as the harbour beach is a few minutes walk, this wasn't really an issue! Hide

We really enjoyed our 5 day stay at Hexham Cottage in Seahouses. The cottage was perfect and had everything we needed. Location was good as it was just a one minute walk from the shops and restaurants. Would recommend visits to Alnwick Castle and gardens and Bamburgh Castle plus the beach there which is amazing on a sunny day

Reviewed by Winifred

The cottage is very conveniently placed being very close to the harbour and the town where there are plenty of eating places within walking distance. There are good walks along the coast in both directions to beautiful beaches. A trip to the Farnes us a must if you like bird watching.

Lovely cottage tucked away in the heart of Seahouses. Cosy lounge with lovely wood burning stove. The 2 double bedrooms are well presented. We would definitely return for another winter break. Seahouses in January is nice and quiet with the local pubs very welcoming following a day out walking. Parking is a little tight.

Beautifully furnished with everything you could possibly need. Hexham Cottage is in a fantastic position close to all the amenities in Seahouses. You can walk along the beach to Bamburgh (approx 4 miles). I can recommend the Victoria Hotel in Bamburgh for food. Beautifully prepared and dog friendly too. Fish and chips from Neptune's in Seahouses isRead more a must as well as a trip to Holy Island. We loved the area and will be returning next year. 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.
