This traditional yet contemporary-style cottage sits in an ideal Northumberland location. With history, wildlife and beaches at close by its a great base to explore the region from.

Situated in the heart of traditional, historic Seahouses, Puffin Cottage is located just a few steps from the bustling harbour in this truly picturesque seaside village. The main street is just a short stroll away where you can find a wide variety of shops, friendly pubs and restaurants.

If you want to explore the area, there is so much to see and do. You can catch one of the many boat trips to the nearby Farne Islands to see local wildlife such as puffins and seals and you can take a drive along the beautiful coast road to explore Bamburgh village with its magnificent Castle, cross the causeway to Holy Island, spend time on the beautiful beach at Beadnell, followed by lunch in one of the great places to eat there, drive a little south to Craster and see the charming harbour and walk the coastal path to Dunstanburgh Castle remains, play golf with breath-taking views and take a beach walk at Low Newton followed by lunch and a drink in the excellent Ship Inn with its own microbrewery!

Puffin Cottage has been recently renovated, yet still retains some of its traditional features, such as a narrow corridor off the kitchen where barrels of herring were once rolled from the yard onto carts for transportation. The cottage is set over two floors with the open plan kitchen and dining area and a good size living room on the ground floor. The two bedrooms, one of which has a Super King size bed are located on the first floor, along with the family bathroom on a three quarter landing. The cosy lounge has a log burning stove set in an original stone fire place, the ideal place to relax and plan your holiday adventures. There are two very comfortable sofas, a flat screen TV with Freeview and a DVD player and Wi-Fi. The stove and electric radiators mean the cottage stays warm, whatever the weather.

Nice place, good location but parking is tight. Also not truly dog friendly as no enclosed outside space

Reviewed by Daniel C 17th February 2018

A great location to enjoy Seahouses and the surrounding area. Bamburgh Castle and Dunstanburgh Castle walk from Craster are a must. The beach at Beadnell for walking with the dog is fantastic. Although there is not a lot to do, this is this the appeal in the area. As a family of 5 (with three girls all approaching teenage years), we found lots to dRead moreo and and see. Its our first time to Northumberland and we we will be back and will be using your company again. I only had to call your company once regarding the keys in the door to a different property and the lady I spoke to was brilliant. Very friendly and personable. Hide

Puffin Cottage was great - well equipped (best range of kitchen utensils, pans and crockery of any self-catering place we've stayed!) and cosy for our stay over New Year. We'll definitely be back!

The cottage is in a good location near the harbour in Seahouses. The living room was cosy with the fire lit and the big bed very comfortable. We enjoyed lots of walks with the dog on the lovely large beaches, and pottering around the shops.

Puffin Cottage is very comfortable and well equipped with private parking literally outside the door. Would quite happily stay there again.

We stayed at Puffin cottage in Seahouses, the cottage itself was fantastic, excellent size and all amenities, lovely and clean and car parking! Close to shops and pubs, we visited the Links hotel and Insieme for food which were both lovely! The Old Ship Inn and the Bamburgh Inn were both nice, we just had drinks! Pinnacles does the best chips, NeptRead moreune the best fish! Gorgeous beach which is just a short walk away and Bamburgh beach a short drive away! A boat trip to the Farne Islands is not to be missed, ooh and would recommend a hot kipper sandwich from Swallow Fisheries, just around the corner from the cottage ?? Hide

The location of Puffin cottage is excellent. The outside area is big enough to park a large car and still sit out to eat. Well equipped and clean. Comfy lounge with great wood burner.

Reviewed by Nicole G 12th August 2017

The cottage was lovely, all mod-cons and very cosily decorated and furnished, and was in a fabulous location being really close to the town, but in a street away from the hustle and bustle - we barely noticed the lovely pub next door. The Farne Islands trip is an absolute must, and walks along the beaches -we walked from Seahouses to Bamburgh (and Read moreback) rockpooling, and fossil hunting along the way -it was fab (we were very lucky with the weather though!).

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.
