We both grew up in the North East and live here still. We have been regular visitors to Seahouses and the Northumberland area certainly for most of our adult lives. We have holidayed with our children as well as regular day trips in the summer so know these beautiful area's very well. We hope others will enjoy the benefits we love too.

First impressions

  • 4 of 5

Lovely warm and cosy apartment but initially disappointed with the fact that we were not st front of building. The impression from website was that we had sea views but we took it in turns at the table to get the view! That said wonderful location for Holy Island, Amble, walking and sightseeing. We had a great holuday on our first visit to Northumbria.

Great apartment in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely compact apartment with everything we needed for our week long stay. There are lovely views of the beach and dunes from the dining table so you can watch the surf roll in whilst you are eating your toast made from the tasty bread from Trotters, the local bakery. The apartment is a 10 minute walk into the town along a lovely flat path that runs along the seafront. There are loads of nice places to eat in Seahouses as well as some great takeaways. There are also some great pubs and the Bamburgh Castle lets dogs in too. There are some nice walks to do straight from the apartment door, including to Bamburgh and Beadnell. Overall I would say that this is a great apartment in a perfect location for exploring beautiful Northumberland.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review. These are some of our favourite things too described very well by you!! It's worth noting the area is very dog friendly and 'The Victoria Hotel' at the top of the village in Bamburgh also allows dogs in the bar too. If you decide to visit the area we look forward to hearing from you in the future. Best regards Linda and Bob Cole

Great Base for Exploring

  • 4 of 5

A clean, tidy and comfortable flat well located for exploring the Northumbria region. A well equipped kitchen is provided but ample good eating places can be found in town which is an easy, level walk away. Being located on the coast road a short walk on the beach or through the dunes can be taken any time.

There is ample off street parking at the flat and roads in the area give easy access to Lindisfarne, Bamburgh, Hadrians Wall, Cheviot Hills, Berwick and more. Boats to the Farne Islands readily available from Seahouses.

All in all a highly recommended base for a holiday.

Perfect for exploring Northumberland

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Buckets and Spades. The apartment is situated across the road from a beautiful sandy beach with views of Bamburgh Castle and is well kept and well equipped. We enjoyed trips to Bamburgh, Hadrian's wall, Edinburgh and Holy Island, plus a boat trip out to Longstone Island where we visited the light house where Grace Darling lived. Seahouses is a short walk away, where there are a variety of restaurants, gift shops, bakers, greengrocers and a small supermarket. Thoroughly recommended as a base for exploring Northumberland.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a positive review of Buckets and Spades and the lovely area it's situated in. I'm sure this will help future guests who are thinking of visiting the Northumberland coastal area. We do try to make Buckets and Spades a pleasant and comfortable 'home from home' and look forward to hearing from you if you decide to re-visit the area again in the future.

Great location and well equipped property.

Great to find such a lovely place that accepts dogs. Very close to a huge beach. The beds were comfortable and the flat was clean and well equipped for home cooking.

Location

From the Owner

We feel the property is beautifully positioned opposite the Farne Islands and looking North to Bamburgh Castle. and only a 'stones throw' from the beach. We are always rested and refreshed after a visit.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Newcastle at 30 Miles Nearest Barpub : The Ship at 0.5 Miles Nearest Ferry : North Shields at 40 Miles Nearest Golf : Seahouses at 1 Miles Nearest Motorway : A1 at 10 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Elans at 0.5 Miles Nearest Beach : Seahouses at 100 Metres Car: recommended

Alnwick town and Alnwick Castle and Gardens where some of Harry Potter was filmed.

Bamburgh Castle

Visit the Farne Islands by boat from Seahouses to see Grey Seals, Puffins and various other sea birds depending on the season.

There are lots of opportunities for walking in the area from a simple walk North along the beach from Seahouses to Bamburgh and a variety of coastal walks, to a much different experience of walking in the Cheviot Hills.
