Just returned, following a fantastic weekend, staying at Bluebells cottage. Booked, after viewing on trip advisor. We have visited Seahouses in the past, but never stayed there, and we love the Northumberland Coast. The booking process was really good, and the owner was so helpful with advice re keys and arrival times etc. On arrival we parked in the private space at the front of the cottage, there is adequate room for two cars. The cottage has such a homely feel to it, is tastefully decorated, and the owner had even left a bottle of wine and box of chocolates for our arrival! We could not have asked for better accommodation, everything was spotlessly clean, and there was everything required for our stay. There were extra blankets for the dog, if needed, some toys, large selection of DVD's, and free WiFi!! There were leaflets for local attractions, and also places to eat out, or order food from. It was lovely to sit at the rear of the kitchen to enjoy breakfast, looking out into the tastefully decorated, South facing, rear garden. The cottage is only 10-15 minutes walk to the front at Seahouses. Turn left from the cottage, cross Broad road, and there is a gate which takes you on to the path , leading to town via the car park. Cross the main road at the end and you are on the path, leading to the beautiful beach. We walked the dog every day, there, it's a beautiful white sandy beach, and so large that it's never busy. We walked to Bamburgh via the beach and spent a lovely day there too. Seahouses is a good base to visit other places along the coast, such as Bamburgh, Lindisfarne etc. I cannot recommend Bluebells cottage highly enough, it is a real home from home, and we will definitely stay there again! Thank you Chris, for our arrival gift, and for providing such a lovely holiday home. It was fantastic!! Missing it already!!
My family have just returned from a fabulous week at Bluebells Cottage. The cottage is very well appointed with just about everything needed. A kingsize double bed in the main bedroom and twin beds in the other room. It has a cosy lounge with a great selection of DVDs to suit all ages and tastes- even sharpened colouring pencils, and a kitchen dining room with a lovely sunny seating area- perfect for reading a book or having a cup of tea. The owner left a very welcome bottle of wine and some chocolates for us which is a great touch. There was also a selection of menus from restaurants in the town. The added bonus was the Wifi which was great as we all had gadgets which would benefit from it. My daughter said on leaving, how sad she was to go- high praise!
Great wee cottage within pleasant walking distance of Seahouses and the rather quirky Ship Inn. Well equipped with plenty of space for 4. This will definitely by top of my list for booking when returning to the area.
