Very nice cottage very clean and comfortable and well equipped for four people and and our small dog.Seahouses is a lovely coastal town and a good walking area and dog friendly .
Just back from a three night stay in Old Salt Cottage and loved it! It's a lovely cottage to stay in, situated in the middle of Seahouses, just a few minutes walk from a variety of restaurants, shops and the harbour.
The cottage had everything you needed, well equipped kitchen if you wanted to cook for yourself and a cosy, comfortable, living room if you wanted to sit in with a glass of wine to watch a film. Plenty dvds, books and games to choose from too. We were delighted to find a bottle of wine and shortbread from the owners, Claire & Kevin on arrival - Thanks!
It's also a great base for visiting the surrounding areas like Bamburgh Castle, Dunstanburgh Castle and loads of beaches etc. As keen photographers there was a lot of good chances for amazing pictures.......sunrise at Bamburgh Beach was a favourite.
Can't wait to go back!
the cottage was excellent had everything a family needed for a comfortable stay. The location is great. I would definitely recommend to friends and will be back.
Myself, husband and 2 children (aged 3 and 7) had an amazing stay at Old Salt Cottage.
The cottage itself has everything you need and the owners have added lots of little touches to make it feel like a home away from home. The rooms are all very spacious and nicely decorated. The whole cottage was spotlessly clean when we arrived on our first day.
The location of the cottage is perfect, with a 2 minute walk to the centre of Seahouses and the harbour. There is so much to do in and around Seahouses and although we didn't have the best weather we still managed to visit some of the beautiful beaches and castles.
I would definitely recommend this cottage and we will most certainly be going back for another visit soon.
Excellent accommodation, very cosy and comfortable.
Tastefully decorated and well equipped. An ideal location close to the centre of Seahouses. We appreciated the clear directions, instructions and treats on arrival!
Wow! What an amazing place! We recently spent 4 nights at the Old Salt Cottage and it was brilliant. The cottage is beautiful; the owners have made it so comfortable, cosy and welcoming but with a modern feel. We were really impressed at how well equipped the cottage was; self-catering for four adults (and one labrador!) in the kitchen was no problem and we loved browsing the thoughtfully placed books in the lounge.
There were so many other lovely touches throughout the cottage such as shortbread, rock, wine, milk and dog treats, plus the postcards in the kitchen were fab! There's definitely a feeling of generosity throughout the cottage, you can tell the owners have really thought about and value their guests' experiences.
I highly I recommend this cottage, plus the communication we had from the owners was brilliant. Seahouses itself is beautiful and Old Salt Cottage is the perfect base from which to explore. It was lovely to be able to pop out for a few hours but then come back to the cottage to relax. Thanks Claire & Kevin, I hope we can come back soon! x
I've just returned from a long weekend at Old Salt Cottage with my husband and two small children (ages 2&4).
The cottage is in a perfect location with plenty of places to choose from for a nice meal and the beach only a few minutes walk away.
The cottage has such a homely feeling and now the second time I have stayed. The first time was with friends but it was ideal for being there with my children also. They loved the house and the travel cot we took fitted in perfectly in the twin bedroom which meant the girls could share a room.
We tried out a couple of recommendations from the old salt cottage website-Bamburgh Castle and the Barn at Beal which served up a delicious Sunday Roast.
I have no hesitation in recommending Old Salt Cottage and will definitely be coming back.
