Mad, loud family of five, mixed interests and needs so this suits all. Matt kitesurfs, landboards and the kids and myself chill out, body surf and just have fun. The detached home and spacious feel means that we can be ourselves and be as free as we like. Perfect.!

Great location access to the beach

  • 4 of 5

Lovely part of the country to visit. Property is well equipped and although a short walk to the beach access is easy. Lots of space in the house which is great along with games books DVD's etc lots to keep you entertained, though if the weather is good you won't need them! Lots of information on local activities available in the house which is really helpful. We had a great stay!

Great location and lovely spacious house

  • 4 of 5

Lovely holiday home close to seahouses and the beach. Only think that would have made it perfect would have been curtains or blackout blinds to keep the kids asleep longer! Well equipped and plenty of space.

Fantastic well equipped holiday home

  • 5 of 5

This is a delightful spacious holiday home right next to Seahouses beach. The owner has thought of everything and you will want for nothing during your stay.

There are 4 spacious bedrooms two of which are ensuite. The beds are very comfortable and linens and towels are provided.

The lounge is ginormous with the added bonus of a log burning stove.

The home is very clean and tastefully furnished and I will be recommending it to my friends and I will be booking another break soon

Beautiful house - perfect group accommodation

  • 5 of 5

A weekend break for my 40th birthday celebration - 8 ladies shared this beautiful property for 2 nights. First impressions - it's on a housing estate !!! eek! Step inside this detached (huge) bungalow and wow! You forget the housing estate immediately. Hall way is a great size for unloading everything from the 3 cars we parked on the drive way. Kitchen off the hallway, looking out to rear decking with table and chairs and farmers fields beyond. The kitchen table seats 6, we added other chairs to allow all 8 of us to eat together. Masses of plates, bowls, cutlery, pans, oven-ware, utensils, glasses, even a couple dishwasher tablets.

Kitchen leads into living room - very spacious with a 4 seater sofa, a 3 seater and a pouffe thingy. Plenty of books, DVDs, games, to keep you going and plenty of space to do it in. Huge coffee table for games or nibbles. Very comfortable. Spotlessly clean - Home from Home House keeping certainly do their job.

Pleased we had the annexe too - great to have a second sitting room and the wet room is absolutely ideal.

All beds were (so I'm told) incredibly comfortable. Bedding and furnishings were of a very high standard throughout.

Friday night - it's 20 mins walk into Seahouses, but we called a cab. There are only a few taxis so either book early or be prepared to wait.

Went for Italian at Insieme - great food, great service, and then a couple of

drinks at The Schooner. Taxi back home.

Saturday - a wander around the many shops and along the short pier, avoiding the seagulls. Fish and Chips at Neptunes - Mmmm!!!

Saturday night we bought nibbles, pizzas etc and enjoyed home comforts. Unfortunately, we ran out of loo roll (oh no!) and called Rachel the housekeeper for help - we'd all had a glass of wine by then and it was freezing outside so we were reluctant to walk (20 mins) into seahouses centre to the co-op. Rachel was incredibly accommodating and popped over with supplies, we left some money to replace then - it is self catering and we should have brought our own (initial supplies were available - 2 per loo) but we didn't think about that. Thanks Rachel!!

All in all - a beautiful house, very clean, very comfortable, a great base to explore the NE coast line and up into the borders. The house has everything you could possibly need, just don't forget the loo-roll.

I would definitely book this house again - either with a group of girls or family.
