Our Holiday Cottages
Self Catering Holiday Cottages, Northumberland
Farne House comprises seven self-contained self catering holiday cottages, spectacularly sited on the headland above
the harbour at Seahouses on Northumberland's Heritage Coast. The location is truly spectacular and affords stunning sea
views across to the Farne Islands, Holy Island and Bamburgh Castle.
The holiday cottages are complimented by an excellent, reliably-warm swimming pool and sauna. Located in the midst
of the complex, this facility is popular with all age groups. The pool is available for use seven days per week from
8.00 am until 10.00 pm. There is a constant depth throughout of 1.2 metres. The swimming pool has been reserved for the
exclusive use of our resident guests - you will not encounter outsiders using the facilities. The sauna, sited within
the pool area, is a very well received leisure item.
Five of the holiday cottages have full sea views and two, although of equal quality and offering the same high
standard of comfort, do not have sea views. Three cottages accommodate six guests, one cottage accommodates five guests,
and three cottages accommodate four guests. To take best advantage of the stunning sea views, the living areas have
been located on the upper floors. All of our self catering properties have full central heating. There is parking
available for eight to ten cars.
Located at the heart of Seahouses, the bubbling, busy and interesting small harbour is truly one of this coastline's
gems. Fresh lobsters and crabs are landed daily, and there is a constant high level of diving and boat activity.
The lifeboat can be seen regularly in the water, either working or on exercise along with the air / sea rescue
helicopter. Irrespective of age, visitors will always find something of great interest.
Wildlife can be seen in abundance, from seals nesting and breeding on the Farne islands just off Seahouses to eider
ducks, puffins and an extensive variety of other birdlife.
As may be expected, there is an excellent fresh fish and seafood shop, which is often featured on television and
which has been visited recently by Rick Stein, the world famous fish chef. Fish shops aside, you will find a very good
selection of shops in the High Street, including ones selling a wide range of local produce. If one tires of home
cooking, small restaurants are plentiful.
Adjoining Seahouses are a number of delightful villages, also boasting wonderful beaches. Most of these can be
accessed on foot via lovely walks along the beach or on footpaths through the dunes. Beadnell is just two miles away,
and Bamburgh is only a mile further.
Travelling inland towards the Cheviot Hills, you will find a beautiful wild and expansive countryside just aching
to be explored, and - whatever else you do on holiday here - do not forget to cross the causeway when the tide is out
to experience the peace and tranquility of Holy Island.
