This lovely original stone built cottage is situated near the harbour and only one mile away from Bamburgh Castle. It sleeps two people and provides the perfect base for exploring Northumberland.

This cosy cottage for two with oak flooring and a multi fuel stove is one of only a few remaining original stone built cottages in Seahouses. Built originally as a fisherman's cottage in around the 1820s, it is full of character and charm and provides an excellent base for a couple looking to explore the beautiful Northumberland coast.

At Seahouses you are literally surrounded by stunning scenery and spoilt for choice for things to do and places to visit. Within a short walk of the cottage are many attractions of Seahouses itself. The harbour is just around the corner and there are many pubs, shops and restaurants to choose from along Main Street.

The Farne Islands can be reached by regular boat trips from Seahouses harbour. Great for bird lovers and geologists.

The historic town of Alnwick is only 10 miles away where you will find a thriving, historic market town with something a bit special! Even if you are not green fingered, a visit to Alnwick Gardens is a must, where you can stroll around the stunning gardens and waterfalls. Harry Potter fans of all ages should visit Alnwick Castle (or Hogwart's School) and relive some of the favourite scenes from the popular films.

The Heritage coastline is dotted with castles and villages and stunning beaches - ideal for walking all year round. The Cheviot Hills are only a short drive away offering superb views across to Holy Island and Lindisfarne. Alternatively, a stroll along the coats to Bamburgh Castle (only 1 mile away) or a visit to Holy Island are both ideal for a family day out.

The cottage is in a great location, located on a cul-de-sac, only a stone's throw from the harbour, and a short walk to the main streets with a great range of shops, bars and restaurants. Boat trips to The Farne Islands can be booked from the harbour front.

A great stay in a lovely cosy cottage. We enjoyed a walk to Bamburgh and a look round the castle, a boat trip to the Farne Islands, driving to Lindisfarne to look at the priory, and visiting Barter Books and Alnwick Garden.

We stayed in the Kittiwake Cottage in Seahouses for our anniversary. We have visited so many cottages/apartments and hotels and this one has honestly been the best holiday we've had. We enjoyed shopping and walking along Bamburgh Beach and also enjoyed the local fish shops (Lewis's and Neptune's). This cottage didn't have Internet and no signal butRead more it definitely made me kick my habit of checking my phone every 5 minutes and let us both enjoy the sea views.

Kittiwake Cottage is a very well equipped comfortable and cosy cottage for two. The location of the cottage in Seahouses is great, as all the following are within walking distance - beach, pub, chip shop, local shops and supermarket. A trip to Bamburgh Castle, Holy Island, Alnmouth and Warkworth were well worth a visit.

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.
