“An excellent base for exploring the Northumbrian Coast”
Reviewed 3 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

people found this review helpful

The Old Granary proved to be an excellent base for exploring the Northumbrian Coast. We found comfortable and modern facilities which met our high expectations. It is located well on the edge of the village, within easy walking distance of the centre which offers local shops. Good, hearty food at the old pub near the harbour and the artisan pizza restaurant on the High Street. The property owner sent clear instructions and provided a welcome gift on arrival! Also, a booking dates change was resolved in a friendly and helpful manner. Without hesitation, a 5 star review.

“The Old Granary”
Reviewed 18 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Just spent a lovely long Easter weekend at this fantastic cottage. Everything catered for which is sometimes a challenge with a 12 and 4 year old - Sarah has it all covered! Xbox, to lego, to a little Peppa pig toy playhouse. We even played draughts!! Kitchen is equipped with everything you need, comfy beds and cosy lounge. The en-suite shower is small but Sarah is very open about it and my 6'3'' husband managed just fine, for anyone who might be concerned. It's perfectly situated, nice and quiet with Seahouses centre just down the road. Beautiful area to visit, we will definitely return to The Old Granary

“Beautiful cottage- better than expected”
Reviewed 18 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

person found this review helpful

We've stayed in Northumberland a number of times before and must say this is definitely the best of the lot. From opening the door the place was welcoming and homely. Everything you could wish for was available. I especially loved the living room on the first floor, so relaxing and didn't want to venture out at night. Sarah is so helpful and put me at ease, as was worried about taking our puppy with us- she loved her holiday home too. The cottage is a short walk into Seahouses, which has pubs, take aways, a co-op but most importantly an amazing view of Bamburgh Castle! Already checking diaries to see when we can go again. Thank you Sarah for sharing your beautiful home, and owls, with us.

We really enjoyed our stay at the old granary. It was cosy and clean. The children loved all the toys and games and Sarah couldn't have been more helpful.

“lovely cottage”
Reviewed 22 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We really enjoyed this comfortable, character cottage. Lots of attention to detail to ensure the comfort of the holiday makers. We really appreciated the chocolates and fizz on arrival. Only slight difficulty was the rather small shower.

Thanks for your review, glad you enjoyed your stay - we are very honest about the head height in the en suite shower as we like to manage our guests expectations, sounds like you had a great time regardless though and hope to welcome you back in the future

“Great location”
Reviewed 10 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

My wife and I are from Texas and vacationed in the UK July of 2016. Our last week was spent in Seahouses at the Old Granary.
We chose this as we felt it was better than a simple B@B or hotel room and were not disappointed.
The cottage is very clean and well appointed including a washing machine which came in handy after a prior two weeks of travel.
The Old Granary is about a 10 minute walk into town so it was easy to pick up supplies at the local Co-Op store as well as a Bakery and Butchers shop.
Boats leave Seahouses harbor for the Farne Islands as well as Holy Island. Bamburgh and Alnwick castles are within a short drive.
Thank you Sarah for a great time and also the bottle of wine you left to welcome us.
As we are from the US we will probably not be back again but if we ever decide to do so we would definitely stay here again.
