We stayed 4 nights at this comfortable B & B, very well situated just 5 minutes walk from the centre of Seahouses, so very convenient but a lot quieter than being in the very centre with its large number of visitors. Sue and John Gibson are experienced hosts and run a relaxed and efficient B & B - clean comfortable rooms and really good breakfasts - 12 different fruits including fresh raspberries, blackberries and strawberries, as well as cereals and yoghurts, and 3 choices of cooked breakfast (we tried them all, all good). Lots of things to like - our bed was super-comfortable and we slept well every night; I took advantage of the fresh sealed Colombian ground coffee and cafetiere in our room each morning; there is a pleasant bar where you help yourself and put the money in an honesty bowl (ridiculously low prices - £2 for a G & T?). We had the Morocco room, small but very cosy, with a view over the sea and the Farnes, and also had a night in the India room as the Morocco room wasn't free when we booked, which was larger, with room for two comfy chairs and a coffee table, but not quite such a good shower, view along the bay and towards Bamburgh Castle. Fresh towels every day. Free Wi-Fi. Friendly atmosphere in the breakfast room with a nice lot of guests. The rooms have efficient heaters which warm the room up quickly, but the bathrooms have wall fan heaters which are less effective. Altogether we very much enjoyed our stay - Seahouses is an excellent base for exploring the Northumberland coast and this is very good, comfortable B & B in a prime position.
