A courtyard of four 1 bedroom holiday cottages in the old fishing quarter of Seahouses
Close to the harbour and ideally situated for the amenities of the village, beach walks and other outdoor activities. No 2 is two storey with one standard double bedroom.
Only 50 yards outside the courtyard and you are on the top of the harbour wall, where seating is provided so you can while away the hours watching the toings and froings of harbour life, or stretch your legs on the beautiful beaches which run North and South and are ideal for leisurely walks, or for those more adventurous try the 6 mile return beach walk to Bamburgh, or the 14 mile return journey to Newton by the Sea (great pub awaits for the mid walk break).
The cottage is close to all the village amenities - shops, butchers, bakers (no candlestick maker tho), pubs & restaurants, newsagents, petrol station, library, resource centre for internet access, takeaways, and the harbour where you can leave on excursions to visit the Farne Islands, to see Puffins (June & July), Grey Seals and many other species of birds. The area is popular with birdwatchers and photographers.
Just 2.5 miles up the coast by road is Bamburgh and its wonderful castle on a rocky outcrop overlooking the beach, and 15 miles south you'll find Alnwick Castle and Garden a popular spot for those with green fingers, and Harry Potter fans (the castle was Hogwarts and the site of the quidditch pitch in the 1st two films).

Mrs O'Leary - 14th June 2021
Excellent property close to the town and the beach, ideal base for our stay in Northumberland. Brilliant directions to the property we would definitely go again Ms Barson - 24th May 2021
Mr Tansley - 16th May 2021
Very comfortable and lovely welcome packs (for humans and dogs)Mrs Ann Clarke - 4th October 2019
Great property, really enjoyed our stay. Mrs Julie James - 30th August 2019
For my third stay in the same cottage, I knew what to expect regarding amenities (and thank you for that new mattress!!!) but there is always something surprising as well. This time it was the starlings breeding underneath the roof - very loud at night, and took some time getting used to, but they are so much part of Seahouses that without them, it wouldn't be the same! Other than that, the usual walking distance to everything, the coastal path, the golf course, Main St food, and (most importantly) the harbour. Step through the door, smell the air, and go! Best value for that I've had in 25 years of international travel. In short - highly recommended! - 8th May 2019
A stunning place to stay with fabulous views of the harbour,Farne Islands, Bamburgh castle,Lindisfarne castle only 50 yards from the accommodation. It has everything that you could possibly need for a self catering stay. The location is very central and is an excellent location for visiting lots of interesting places. There are many golf courses withing a short distance and some excellent walks inland or on the beach. Overall a fantastic place to relax. - 23rd March 2019
Nice cottage, well located close to everything but lovely and peaceful - everything you could want in Seahouses is in easy walking distance - 24th October 2018
My second stay in the property, and definitely not the last. Apart from the construction crew that can't be helped there is a blissful quiet about the place. Everything important to me (like the Harbor :-)) is within easy walking distance. There is parking. There are even sparrowhawks hunting the roof (advise: not for the squeamish) and pigeons cooing in the courtyard. Do bring a torch at night as that courtyard can be dark when you return, and the surface is charmingly uneven. Would recommend at any time, especially to those seeking refuge from work stress. Heavenly! - 10th October 2018
No. 2 Cliff House Cottages is just the right size for a couple, quite cozy with all the amenities such as a broadband internet connection and a fully equipped kitchen. The location is convenient, you can just walk out the front door and continue along the coast in either direction. Some days we didn't even bother with the car as it was easy to walk along to Bamburgh or Beadnell. We did find the parking a little tricky as there is a tight turn out of the property to the street, but then again the streets in Seahouses tend to be quite narrow anyway. We highly recommend the property for a beach holiday or just a weekend away. - 30th August 2018
This was - I think - our 6th stay in No. 2 and as usual it was very good. As there are 3 of us we particularly appreciate the extra chair provided to make our stay more comfortable. - 16th August 2018
Clean and well equipped, this cottage is convenient to shops and public transport. We enjoy ed d our stay. - 1st August 2018
This was the icing on the cake for a beautiful location. The only beef I have is the fact that the emergency number could not be reached on a Saturday even though on the first and second day, the door was extremely stubborn and often would only close after patiently trying for about 5 minutes, leaving a gap of nearly a centimeter. Maybe you could check and align the lock so this doesn't happen in the future - thx. - 11th July 2018
From the initial phone call with our request for a cottage for a short break , Beth was sure she could help and forwarded a choice for us to have a look at. We agreed to go for 2 Cliff House cottage , right price , right location ,even the right weather . The cottage was ,well equipped ,clean and the welcome pack was a nice surprise .We had three great days walking and enjoying the local restaurants and pubs , fish and chips outside taste better .The car never moved ,everything on the doorstep , a great short break , thank you very much . - 22nd May 2018
We so enjoyed our stay here. Cottage was lovely, very clean and welcoming, a lot of thought has gone into the needs of holidaymakers and it was so nice to have tea, coffee, milk and biscuits provided after our long journey. Another bonus was WiFi which we didn't expect. The bed was comfortable with a selection of pillows to suit everyone. The courtyard has picnic tables outside each property and even a bbq. Location is great, turn left out of the courtyard and you are opposite the harbour. - 9th May 2018
Lovely,cosy cottage, great location with everything we neded for a short break. Extra touches with welcome pack for the pooch and easter eggs for us :). Will definately book again. - 7th April 2018
The cottage was lovely, great condition and cosy. Brilliant location so close to town and the sea. Really quiet and peaceful courtyard. Nice welcome pack and we'll equipped. Only gripe is lack of mobile signal which can't be helped. Would stay here again. - 8th October 2017
Seahouses village is a brilliant centre to move out from - either walking or driving. There are places to shop and a choice of eateries within Seahouses itself so everything is to hand if you don't want to go any further afield. The beaches are without doubt some of the best in Britain. - 20th September 2017
We had to contact the office and their response was first class. We're very impressed with the service we received. - 23rd August 2017
This was a lovely, clean cottage, perfect for our week away. The welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk and shortbread biscuits was a nice touch, as was the welcome pack of treats for our dog which she sniffed out as soon as arrived. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, the cottage is situated in a quiet courtyard but is only a 2 minute walk to the harbour and centre of Seahouses. The cottage was cosy but more than big enough for 2 adults and a dog. The only issue we had was remembering to duck our heads in the bedroom as we hit them on the eaves a couple of times! We will definitely look to book this property again the next time we want to stay in Seahouses. - 20th August 2017
Our 6th visit to this cottage in Seahouses. The location is excellent and a far better place to park than many others. It's a bit cosy for three but worth it. Staynorthumbria's customer service is excellent and I would not hestitate to recommend them - as indeed I already have. - 9th August 2017
Great little pet friendly cottage. Superb location to travel around the area. Great communication and service provided. - 20th July 2017
Cosy little cottage in quiet corner of Seahouses, near the harbour, with everything we needed for our weeks holiday. The bedroom is in the roof space so headroom is limited; we are not very tall but this could be a nuisance to anyone taller. Wifi was fast - 5th July 2017
Good week spent walking on the Northumbria coast. Very good cottage with a welcome pack of tea and coffee waiting on our arrival. Only drawback is the low ceiling in the bedroom. - 27th May 2017
Lovely little cottage in a great location - very quiet spot and has parking. Walking distance to dog friendly beaches up and down the coast. Stayed here three times now - always immaculately presented - 27th January 2017
Our 2nd stay at this cottage (3rd at Cliff House). Again, very comfortable stay. Excellent location. - 10th January 2017
Been to no 2 before and yet again the accommodation was superb. Great to find a place that not only caters for pets but provides a towel and treats for them! It was a wet weekend on our stay, but with the heaters on and a good whisky to sip we really didn't mind. Just one small detail to mention though it did not affect our stay, there is a leak above the window near the door - we only noticed because it rained very heavily while we were there and found the floor covered in water. We put a bucket under it but it may need attention. - 17th November 2016
Enjoyed 4 nights at no.2 Cliff cottages. The cottage was clean and comfortable and very well equipped, It is well located for amenities of Seahouses and visiting the beautiful Northumberland coast. For me the only downside was that I found the heated towel rail in bathroom was inadequate for keeping the bathroom warm, I didn't enjoy getting out of shower - 18th October 2016
The cottage was cosy but had everything that you could need. We felt that the car park space was a bonus and the cottage was in a perfect location. With just a short walk to the local bars, shops and restaurants (and a stunning view on your journey of Bamburgh castle in the distance) everything was on your doorstep. The cottage had a lot of leaflets for nearby attractions but we would recommend a visit to Howick Hall and Gardens (for the woodland walks), Alnwick Gardens, Bamburgh and Holy Island. We would definitely recommend this accommodation and would stay here again. - 4th October 2016
Amazing on all counts, central, clean, cosy, reasonably priced. We had a lovely stay in a beautiful area. It was great being able to take our dogs (2) also with a nice welcome pack for them, that was a nice touch. Also having milk and coffee/tea there was a welcome sight. - 9th September 2016
A 2 second walk from the sea-view this delightful cottage is set in a former herring yard. It feels really homely and far from the madding crowd - your own space in a busy and popular little village. The cottage is well equipped, and even when things go wrong they were put right straight away with no effort spared. Really lovely. - 24th August 2016
The cottage was as good as ever - this was our fourth stay - and though a bit cramped for three of us the place and the situation make it worthwhile. The lack of a decent phone signal or WIFI - since we are all now totally dependant on our mobile - is a minor annoyance. - 10th August 2016
It was our first visit to the area, and we wanted a house within walking distance of shops, pubs and the coast. Cliff Cottage was ideal for location, especially with the Swallow fish shop round the corner. We went for a walk around the harbour walls every evening to watch the sun set and to enjoy the place without the crowds. Cottage is compact, but very well equipped. It's a little like being in a caravan, but as there were only two of us it was ideal. There is so much to do in the area. We walked to Bamburgh Castle, did boat trip to Farne Islands, kayaked out of Craster, walked down beach and had lunch at Low Newton.... definitely would consider a return (though difficult as we live in Madrid!) - 20th July 2016
Lovely quiet, cute and snug cottage with attention to detail. Excellent location for exploring the area as you can walk on to the coastal path or beach almost from the front door. Handy too for the ferry trips to The Farne Islands - just one of the highlights of our stay. Very good selection of places to eat and shopping only a short walk away. Would highly recommend the cottage as a jolly comfortable base at the end of busy enjoyable days. - 15th June 2016
We really enjoyed our stay in no2cliff cottage,it is in a private courtyard,it is peacefull,and only a short walk to the harbour at Seahouses.The cottage was clean comfortable,had all you needed. - 25th May 2016
Great little cosy cottage , was really impressed when we walked in , modern cooker ,plenty of cooking equipment if you want to do some cooking or there are a few eating places in walking distance. 2 minutes from sea front and dog friendly , would definitely go back - 3rd May 2016
We very much liked the cottage and the staff at Stay Northumberland very kindly allowed us to go in a day early, due to a snow forecast, which may have prevented us travelling the following day. The cottage is very nice and perfect for a short stay. If I had any suggestions to improve the cottage it would be that the shower is very weak and could be improved. It would also have been nice to have Wifi, although 3 days without internet access was probably a good thing. - 11th March 2016
In a great location to the sea and amenities. Had everything we needed and more for a great short break. Comfortable and warm. Provided helpful information about things to do and places to visit. Located in the lovely little seaside visit of Seahouses. - 4th March 2016
We received good instructions allowing us to arrive stress free. In and unpacked we found a nice welcome pack and a file of easy to follow guides. The cottage was well equipped. A great location for exploring the coast. We walked miles, from Bamburgh to Craster. We are at the local Bamburgh Hotel. Had a few drinks at the local bars. A leaky shower hose and some early morning noises in the wall (reported) were the only issues. These didn't detract from an excellent stay. - 29th January 2016
A little cottage just right for two people with everything you need. we stayed for a week . It was properly equipped and warm and our dog was allowed to stay. It was wonderfully quiet but if you opened the windows and the tide was in you could hear the sea . Very comfortable bed and lots of hot water - 4th November 2015
No 2 Cliff Cottages Seahouses was an excellent base for sightseeing along the Northumberland Coast. Cottage was small and compact but very clean, well equipped and comfortable . - 3rd November 2015
We really enjoyed our break away at Seahouses and are so pleased we chose 2 Cliff House to spend our 4 nights in the area. We chose the cottage with the bedroom upstairs; this made the cottage very spacious for the two of us and so you could easily accommodate 4 people. The cottage living and kitchen area are both very well equipped. There are some nice touches throughout the cottage that just add that extra bit of comfort. We cooked twice and found that we had everything we needed....and more! Location wise you certainly couldn't get much better and the courtyard is a mere 30 second stroll from the pretty harbour and easy reach of shops and pubs. We really did enjoy our stay here. We wouldn't think twice about recommending to family and friends. A comfortable and cosy base to explore to the beauty of Northumberland. - 21st October 2015
The cottage was perfect for us and the location by the harbour excellent. Good to be able to just walk out at night to a restaurant.We highly recommend this cottage. - 23rd September 2015
My daughter and I had the most wonderful stay at Cliff House Cottages. The location was great and everything was provided making the place feel like a home away from home. We would definitely book again with Stay Northumbria the next time we visit. - 17th September 2015
loved the no.2 cottage, courtyard parking,location, only 1min from coastal path, it could not get any better than this. Will recommend to everyone. Many thanks and hope to return in the future. - 28th August 2015
Although a little cramped for 3 adults this cottage is well-equipped and very clean. The cottage is located in a lovely courtyard with good parking for one car - which is much better than many other cottages. It is also a good place to sit outside and enjoy your gin and tonic - weather permitting. As Seahouses is a real mobile phone black spot WIFI would be a really useful addition to the package. - 12th August 2015
We found the cottage to be in a very good location cosy and clean just a couple things the bedroom ceiling height my husband kept banging his head on the beams,we struggled to find a plug for the hair dryer near a mirror,and the lounge was a bit too small to be comfortable and we did miss the sky tv on the wet days.Everything else was fine kitchen fine ,bed comfortable,all in all a good holiday. - 5th August 2015
We recently had a four night stay at this cottage and were very pleased with the accomodation and with Seahouses itself. It lived up to our expectations and we look forward to another stay in the future. We would definitely recommend this to our friends and family. - 27th July 2015
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will book again. The courtyard meant that we had our own parking and as parking is at a premium in Seahouses this is a must for any future booking. The cottage was compact and cosy - the weather was chilly so the heaters were required and effective. Everything had been thought of - even the K9 pack - very happy stay. - 10th June 2015
I have stayed here 3 times now and like it.the only downside is network coverage ,which seems to be area wide The location is very central to shops etc - 29th April 2015
There is everything you could ever need in this small compact cottage with ample parking directly outside. The position almost on the harbour is ideal. - 31st March 2015
reasonable accommodation in a fab location beside the harbour. advertised as dog friendly but probably too small for anything but a very small dog. clean and tidy and well stocked with cutlery and crockery as you would expect. loved walking everywhere and the whole ambiance of the locality - 28th March 2015
