Overview

About the property

A charming, newly-renovated seaside cottage just a few minutes’ walk from Seahouses’ delightful harbour, pristine sandy beach and shops, pubs and restaurants. The ideal base for a break whatever the weather.

The fresh, bright, newly-refurbished accommodation is a contemporary twist on the seaside theme. The owner’s impressive attention to detail is reflected in the delightful quirky details throughout. There’re cosy fabrics, interesting local artwork, seaside themed lamps and other objets d’art sourced from local boutiques and antique shops.

The cosy seating area includes a log burner for the cooler months finished off with an impressive stone lintel above the fireplace which was found on the owner’s farm. The sleek, contemporary eat-in kitchen is well equipped with all mod cons including a wine cooler!

The two pretty bedrooms – one double and one twin – are a continuation on the sophisticated seaside theme with warm Farrow & Ball colours, incredibly comfortable beds and plenty of storage.

Outside is a pretty garden to the front and smaller rear garden. The garden is fully enclosed for the safety of children.

The accommodation is all on one floor and is suitable for less mobile guests.

Sitting room with wood burning stove (logs provided), TV with Freeview and board games.

Fully-equipped kitchen with single oven with 4 ring hob, microwave, fridge with ice box, wine cooler and dishwasher.

Utility room with washing machine with dryer and space for the storage of outdoor kit.

Bedroom one with 5’ double bed, large fitted wardrobe, dressing table and TV with Freeview.

Bedroom two with 3’ twin beds, large fitted wardrobe and chest of drawers.

Bathroom with bath with shower over, basin and WC.

Wi fi and mobile coverage

BT Infinity wi fi is available. There is good mobile coverage on most networks.

Guest amenities

The beds are made up with good quality bed linen and hypoallergenic duvets and pillows. A hair dryer is supplied in the master bedroom. Luxurious bath sheets and hand towels are provided for all guests. Guest toiletries are also provided.

Babies and children

A travel cot and high chair are available on request.

Garden and parking

Greengate sits in a pretty, fully-enclosed garden to the front and small private garden to the back which is also fully-enclosed and has a picnic table and chairs for outside dining (available from spring 2015). There is off-street parking in front of the house for one car and ample on-street parking.

Welcome pack

A welcome pack is provided.

Catering

Catering at Greengate is entirely flexible. The house can be taken on a purely self-catered basis, or a cook is available throughout guests’ stay, for breakfasts or dinners only or to provide one-off celebratory meals for a special occasion.

Very well appointed two bedroomed bungalow, well equiped, comfortable beds.

  • 4 of 5

We have been going on holiday with our two friends for a good number of years and have had mixed experiences with our chosen accommodation.' Greengate' comes very close to the top of the list, not only the very high quality of the fixtures and fittings, including a smart 40 " TV. but additional touches from the owner Jane, such as milk, eggs, tea, coffee and sugar, plus the all important towels, three per person. Very comfortable furniture and softs furnishings, well fitted kitchen with good quality crockery and utensils.

The location was also excellent, just 5 minutes walk form the village centre with large Co-Op store, three fish and chip shops, including the Award Winning 'Pinnacles', four pubs, including the very good Old Ship Inn serving excellent food. There is a Chinese takeaway, Italien and Indian Restaurants. A large choice of sea trips to the Farne Islands, a must for the keen eyed bird lovers. I won't mention the 'interesting' variation on the smell of the ozone. (well, nobody warned me !)

I thoroughly reccommend Greengate as a holiday home, so much so, that we will be reurning next year, I hope this encourages you to visit, too.

Greengate Review

  • 5 of 5

This property is superbly located being a few minutes into the centre of Seahouses but yet really quiet. Beds really comfy as well which is not always the case. Would definitely return as we felt really comfortable and it's also superbly located for visiting a large number of places in the region.

Excellent stay away

  • 5 of 5

We had a good five day break at Green Gate in Seahouses. The property is clean, comfortable, has everything you need for a self catering holiday. It is within walking distance of the shops and the harbour and pubs/restaurants. A great place to stay as a base for visiting a lot of the local sites of interest and quirky towns. A must do!!!

Great property in a good location right in the centre of Seahouses.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to Greengates and we have been really impressed with it on both occasions. It is a clean, well maintained property and the log burner and new kitchen are excellent features. The location is great being just a very short walk to the Main Street with all the shops, pubs and restaurants. It doesn't have a view of the sea but it has good outside space and being located where it is means you are not bothered by passers by. Really looking forward to going back.

Brilliant bungalow!

  • 5 of 5

What a great holiday bungalow in Seahouses. Good position for walking out from, or just to drive to other destinations. Having its own drive was a bonus. Once inside we found everything we required for our stay. Everywhere was lovely and clean and it felt so homely. Nice quality furnishings....and the bed was very comfortable indeed.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay very much, wish we could heave stayed for longer really.
