“A lovely cottage in a great location”
Reviewed 22 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Kittiwake is a lovely cottage, and Seahouses is a great base for touring the Northumberland coast.
The cottage is cosy and well-equipped, a home from home. The wall heaters were so good we did not need to use the wood burning stove. It is situated in a quiet road. You can enjoy the morning sunshine on the bench in the front garden.
There are several good places to eat within walking distance of the cottage and it is only a short walk to the harbour. This means you can leave your car at the cottage if you plan to take a boat to the Farne Islands. We did this twice and found it an amazing experience. May is a great time to see the nesting seabirds close up, and to catch puffins in their burrows. There is lots to see in the area-Alnwick, the NT house and gardens at Cragside, Howick House gardens, Bamburgh Castle, Craster. Although the National Trust have closed the Castle on Holy Island for restoration this year, it is still an interesting place to visit (check the tide times given that the causeway floods very quickly).
We enjoyed our time on the Northumberland coast and would definitely stay at Kittiwake cottage if up this way again.

“Lovely place, very relaxing and a good location. ”
Reviewed 17 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

I just want to say we've had a fantastic stay at Kittiwake. It is very close to the beach and shops and has all the facilities you could want in a property. Felt very at home. If we come to Seahouses again we will certainly be stopping here again. Thank you.

“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 17 February 2017 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed in 2015 and really enjoyed it. Great house and amenities. Perfect location. The beach is amazing and it's a great walk to Bamburgh. Lots of pubs and places to eat. The kitchen is well equipped if you want to see the sights but eat at home.
We are hoping to rebook this year.

“Well equipped cottage in good location for exploring the Northumberland Coast”
Reviewed 31 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Kittiwake was perfect for our four night stay. We were two mature couples and everything in the cottage was as described. Karen has ensured the cottage is fully equipped and we lacked for nothing. The convenient location, with the shops, 3/4 minutes away, the harbour just down the road and nearby pubs, all meant for a happy stay. Parking the car away from the property was a very minor inconvenience.
