The location is superb - the sea is literally on the other side of the road, and the walk along the beach to Bamburgh is breathtaking. The room we stayed in (the Harbour room) was clean and had a good view across a green, with the sea on the left and the harbour in the distance (some of the other... More

Spent four VERY enjoyable days in Seahouses and three fantastic nights at the Gun Rock. The rooms were spotless and the owner Judy was extremely friendly and very helpful. It was only a short pleasant stroll along the coast road into Seahouses with all its restaurants, pubs, cafes etc. We were helped with recommendations for meals, trips and directions. The... More

From the easy booking (call Judy first), to the welcome, good room and superb breakfast, we couldn't fault this little gem of a place. Walking distance from Seahouses centre and easy access to the beach and breathtaking views. Don't dawdle just book it, you won't be sorry.

Warm welcome by owner - knowledgeable, very helpful and kind. Nothing too much trouble - knows the trade and customers' needs well. Beautiful décor in well-designed rooms and an uninterrupted view of the sea (Farne and Longstaff rooms). Lots of thoughtful touches in room. Great breakfast - quality, local ingredients all cooked to order and fabulous option of Summer Fruit... More

My husband & I are at present staying here. We both highly recommend the Gun Rock B&B. I'm in my room, the Longstone room, sitting on the bed & gazing at what I'm sure must be the best view in Seahouses. In front of me are the Farne Islands, to my left is Bamburgh Castle, it's a fantastic panoramic view.... More

We stay in at least three B&B's a year and I do a lot of research before booking our 7 day holidays. Everything written about Gun Rock was true. We stayed in the Longstone room, what a lovely room with fantastic sea views and the Farne Islands through the floor to ceiling windows. With the bonus of a balcony it... More

Enjoyed 2 nights at Gun Rock. Very clean and comfortable. Judy very friendly and helpful, even booked us the farne islands boat trip. Great location on the seafront with a short walk into town. Excellent selection for breakfast with some very good local produce. Off road parking at the side of the house.
