Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Absolutely lovely spot, great view, close to the beach and the village.
Very clean and well equipped kitchen etc. Great parking too
Wifi didn’t work, they tried to fix it on the first day but then gave up so no wifi for the week!
Would definitely visit again

We stayed here from 2-6 Nov 14, when we arrived we were greeted by Judy the owner and immediately offered tea and coffee with biscuits. Judy told us about the best places to eat and places of interest making us feel at home. The room with a balcony had a fantastic view and was very comfortable, we can thoroughly recommend staying here. The breakfast was excellent and a great start to our day, we had the famous Bamburgh Bangers every morning and bought some to take home. Judy booked us on a boat trip around the Farne islands which we enjoyed and was helped by a very sunny day, she also booked us a table at a nearby restaurant nothing was too much trouble. A first class guest house.

Enjoyed 2 nights at Gun Rock. Very clean and comfortable. Judy very friendly and helpful, even booked us the farne islands boat trip. Great location on the seafront with a short walk into town. Excellent selection for breakfast with some very good local produce. Off road parking at the side of the house.

We chose this place as it looked over the Sea Front to the Farne Islands and what a choice. The owner was helpful and we had tea and biscuits whilst looking over the sea. Judy was extremley helpful and told us the best places to eat and where not too, which is always useful. Rooms are ext comfortable and beautifully decorated. The Breakfasts are delicious using locally sourced produce and make sure you try the kippers. Very good value for money we would def recommend a stay with Judy her family and Lola at Gun Rock

Gun Rock was everything we'd hoped for - with an even better view!
From the lovely pot of tea when we arrived, though the comfortable night's sleep to the deliciously tasty and filling breakfast, the only thing that would have made our stay more enjoyable would have been wall-to-wall sunshine .... but this was, after all, Northumberland in March!
Thank you, Judy, for making our stay special - and for the loan of the cake knife!

This is a fabulous small and friendly B&B with a hostess to match. Judy was so welcoming and took time to suggest the best places to visit or eat out. Breakfast was first class with locally sourced produce and we brought home a jar of marmalade made by Judy's friend which is delicious.
The room we stayed in, "Farne" was clean and warm with a wondeful view out to sea. It's just a shame it was too cold outside to make use of the balcony so a return visit is planned when the weather warms up!

Thank you so much to our wonderful host Judy who on our arrival made us a well needed tea/coffee with kitkat biscuits and plenty of helpful advice on the local area. Nothing was too much trouble!!! The guesthouse itself is gorgeous, clean, warm and inviting. Our room (The Harbour room) may not have had the Farne Islands view, instead we could see the harbour, sea and gorgeous sunrise, with our own private balcony. Was clean, comfortable and just what we needed for our very short two days away (12th-13th June). This would be my only complaint as my boyfriend and I could have stayed so much longer and offered to buy the guesthouse..........when we win the lottery!!

Breakfast was delicious and I recommend the Bamburgh banger for non vegetarians. We are now back home but we will definitely be back, but for much longer next time. We really have had a wonderful time, thank you Judy.

We recently spent three nights at this fantastic B & B - the best one we've stayed at. It is a fabulous location opposite the Farne Islands. From the minute we arrived we were made very welcome and comfortable. Judy is a wonderful hostess with a very good knowledge of the local area and she makes the best ever breakfast.
Thank you Judy - we will certainly be back

My husband Wilf and I have just returned from a weeks stay at this fantastic little home from home B&B. When we arrived we were met by the owner Judy who offered tea and biscuits, along with a chat about the local area and places to visit etc! We stayed in the Harbour room with fantastic views over the sea front and Seahouses Harbour. The view from our room definitely had the WOW factor. The room and en-suite were both spacious and immaculately clean and had everything you needed from clean luxury towels to shower gel, bubble bath, etc. Both our bedroom and the rest of the B&B was home from home being nicely decorated throughout, immaculately clean and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble for the owner Judy. Breakfast was fantastic with a choice of cereal, fruit juices, fresh fruit and a yummy full english breakfast served on a daily basis. My husband was thrilled to pieces that Judy was able to offer fresh local kippers for breakfast as well.Most evening Judy recommended places to eat and was more than happy to ring through and book us a table. If you are looking for a friendly, welcoming B&B that is run to a high standard then a visit to Judy's is a MUST! We will definitely be returning in the future. Judy is one of the nicest B&B owners we have met.

Sorry, No I am just a B&B. I have an arrangement with the Ocean Club where you can use their pool facilities for a payment of £6 per person per entry. Thanks for your enquiry, Judy
