PUFFIN CRAG, FARNE HOUSE, SEAHOUSES
This is one of 7 Apartments in this small complex on the harbour-side at Seahouses. We rented it for a mid-week break in September 2013. The plus points are the location, with wonderful sea views, and the availability of a swimming pool (although this could have been a few degrees warmer to be comfortable). The 3 bedrooms are of a decent size but the kitchen is tiny and the dining/sitting room would be a bit cramped for 6 people. (As there were only two of us on this visit it was fine.) The bedroom downstairs was the one we used and the four poster bed was very comfortable. There was something of a damp smell when we arrived but this soon cleared and the apartment was warm and cosy with some background heating switched on. There was the occasional knocking from the water pipes, the hobs on the cooker were badly marked, and the dining room table top was loose. Parking is very limited and we had to park on the harbour path as there was no room in the complex's courtyard. There is a good selection of restaurants and takeaways within a few minutes walk and the 'Hot Kipper in a Bun' from the "Swallow Fisherman's Kitchen" just around the corner is not to be missed! We enjoyed our stay and Northumberland is a wonderful place but, although the apartment is quite comfortable, it had rather a worn-out feel to it and needs some updating.
