Great location, lovely view. Nice touch with a welcoming box of shortbread, tea, coffee and wine - very thoughtful, thank you. The cottage was very clean throughout. Including all crockery, glasses, utensils etc. Plus there was enough equipment (hoover & mop etc) to keep it clean. The flat had everything you could possibly want. Would definitely reRead morecommend to others and we hope to come back to Northumberland again some day so I will come back to Cottages in Northumberland. May even try to go back to the same accommodation. he beach at Seahouses ticked all the boxes for us. For fish & chips in Seahouses go to Lewis's, they were delicious. The sausages and burgers from the butchers in Bamburgh lived up to their reputation! We went back for more to bring home. Hide

Lovely cottage with a great sea view and plenty of near by places to visit including Bamburgh Castle, the Farne islands, Holy Island of Lindisfarne and much much more.

Location couldn't have been better. Directly opposite the sea, hence the name " Sound of the Sea". Spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Sound of the Sea was a very comfortable ground floor apartment perfectly located opposite the beach and only a 10 min walk into Seahouses village itself. Recommend eating at the Olde Ship Inn and also Insiemne Read moreItalian restaurant. Also has two good Indian restaurants and excellent fish and chip shops. Freshly cooked fish and chips. Recommend the walk along the beach from Seahouses to Bamburgh. Take a nice stroll around Bamburgh and visit the Grace Darling museum (free of charge). Follow with a drink at the Victoria Hotel which allow dogs in the bar. A visit to the local butchers a few doors away. Must buy the Bamburgh sausages. Hide

Fab location, close to all necessary amenities. Always lovely and clean and very well equipped. We have 2 dogs so the ground floor flat is perfect for us. We just come to relax and walk on the beach, such a beautiful beach. Neptune's fish and chips are the best ever.

Lovely apartment, great sea views, dog friendly and just over the road to the beach and only 10 min into Seahouses.

The flat had very good facilities for everything. The location was wonderful with very easy access to the beach and attractions as well as shops. There was everything you could wish for. Children were really well catered for as well as adults, you could just look out of the double doors and be transported to a fantastic place. There are plenty of pRead morelaces to get a variety of food to eat out,or to do shopping and cook at the flat. There is even a great pint to be had for dad if he likes real ales, in the oldest pub in Seahouses, named "The Ship Inn". Oh and they do fantastic food. Great holiday. Visited Bamburgh Castle and too many other places that were in easy reach to mention. A must is the Farne Islands with the seals, puffins and all the other birds. Don't forget your hat if you do go there as the birds really like peck your head. Thank you again Aimee. Hide

It was clean, tidy and was very well laid out. It was an ideal cottage for our holiday. It had everything we needed + more. We would consider coming back and recommend. We had an excellent week in Seahouses. The cottage was perfect and we enjoyed going to Bamburgh Castle and Cragside.

Perfectly located cottage just across the road from the beautiful beach and a short walk to the town. Cottage was extremely comfortable and had everything you could possibly need.

Reviewed by Malcolm H

Well equipped and maintained. Excellent selection of books, toys, games etc.. (even buckets and spades for the beach although we didn't use them). We are very grateful for cottage owners that accept 2 dogs. It was ideally situated for dog walking and access to the beach.

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.
