Reviews

First class apartment with a first class view. Location perfect. Excellent weather in a lovely town with friendly people. Would definitely return to this apartment. - 28th March 2019
Portside... a superb, modern, contempory beautiful,comfortable, luxury appartment. Equiped to the highest standard with all you could possibly need. Private, secure parking with outbuilding for storage. Two lovely balconies to enjoy the view. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ - 13th November 2018
We thoroughly enjoyed our third stay at 6 Seafield-Portside. The location is perfect, we used the local buses this year either to or from some glorious walks. Billy Shiels provided with an excellent crossing to the Farne Islands, we could watch the boats leave the harbour from the lounge window. All in all our perfect type of holiday. - 22nd June 2018
Great stay. Wonderful location. Good guides available. Views amazing. Loads of great places within short walking distance. Will definitely go back. Super when weather was not so good to be able to have use of the club house on the park behind. Super well equipped kitchen and facilities. - 13th April 2018
Beautiful apartment. Great location. Modern, comfortable and stylish. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. - 13th October 2017
Beautifully situated with sea views, this is our second visit this year to this apartment. Peaceful, relaxing, private, warm and comfortable. Everything you need is provided in this well maintained apartment. Dedicated parking. I am sure we will retun. - 10th October 2017
Having previously stayed in this apartment, we knew what to expect; high quality fixtures and fittings throughout. The balcony to the front offers a splendid view of the Farne Islands and catches the early morning sun. Very secure parking to the rear of the apartment and a personal store for your beach gear are a welcome addition. The glorious Bamburgh beach is a five minute walk from the apartment and the town centre shops are close by. There are many great castles and gardens to visit, all within a thirty minute drive from Seahouses. A relaxing and peaceful location, highly recommended. - 17th August 2017
We found the apartment decorated and equipped to a very high standard, and with everything thought of. In a lovely setting with the views over the sea, and easy walking distance into Seahouses, and a short drive to Bamburgh. Where we found some lovely places to eat. - 7th August 2017
The apartment was excellent. Clean, well equipped with modern kitchen appliances, comfortable beds and the living room was spacious with binoculars to look out over the sea. The location could not have been better. Loved our stay there and will return. - 6th August 2017
This was our second time here as we love the location and the very comfortable apartment which is very well equipped. The only bad thing was that the price had gone up a lot since our last stay - bordering on us not booking this time. - 22nd July 2017
Enjoyed our stay very much and no real negatives. Excellent well equipped and furnished apartment and would certainly stay again. - 27th June 2017
Apartment very Scandinavian looking.A little expensive for one couple for short stay.No hot water due to immersion heater not turned on before our arrival.Front windows were in desperate need of cleaning spoiling view out to sea.Venetian blinds very dusty in kitchen.It may be advisable to check apartment before guests arrival.The apartment gave the impression of not having any occupants for some time. All things considered we still enjoyed our break. - 17th May 2017
This property was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed for our stay, parking was also safe and easy. Easy walk to the shops and amenities and lovely views over the sea. - 16th May 2017
Our stay at Portside in Seahouses was wonderful. From the booking arrangements with Stay Northumbria and their excellent communications by email and text, to the accommodation and location itself. Portside is a first-class premium apartment, with quality fittings, masses of light in every room, fantastic views and everything you need for a relaxing stay. We loved it! - 2nd May 2017
We had a fabulous four night stay throughout the last week of February. The sun shone, it hardly rained at all, and we enjoyed our walks along the superb beach even with the chilly wind. Seaview 6 apartment is all you could want, with comfort throughout. Nice controllable heating, great bathrooms, a lovely well equipt kitchen. Such a feeling of space and light throughout this well thought out development. We will definitely be back for more. Highly recommended. The customer service prior to our stay was exceptional, with very detailed written instructions covering every aspect of our stay. Safe car parking behind locked gates too. Awesome break. - 7th March 2017
The apartment was very well equipped and wanted for nothing,we enjoyed the sunrises and sunsets plus the great view of the sea and beach. I have one slight correction that could be adopted,that is to have a larger difference in the codes for each property. - 28th September 2016
Flat was as website showed. Good outlook to Farne islands and shoreline a few paces away. Plenty of eating places within walking distance. Apartment had everything needed for a comfortable stay. Thoughtful touches like binoculars and travel guides were appreciated. Would definitely recommend this property . - 21st September 2016
Lovely property spoilt by lists of contents in cupboards (made us feel very uncomfortable and unwelcome) and an A4 list of cleaning tasks to be carried out before leaving. - 8th September 2016
Stunning location, apartment very clean and comfortable. Easy access to accomadation with good parking facilities. Kitchen very well equipped. - 13th August 2016
The four of us so enjoyed our second visit to Portside. The accommodation is perfect, everything we needed was there and of a very high standard. The location is ideal for so many attractions. We will be back. - 27th June 2016
Excellent modern apartment, we'll equipped and with sea views. Warm and cosy in very wet and windy weather, with plenty of coast walks and beaches nearby even out of season. - 12th January 2016
Very comfortable, well equipped apartment with quality fixtures and fittings. Perfect location. Two minor cleaning issues reported to Stay Northumbria in feedback form (top of shower head in en-suite shower room needed a wipe as did the top of the glass cooker extractor fan). Excellent holiday and perfect base to explore Seahouses and the Northumbrian coast. - 14th October 2015
This was our second visit to Portslde and it didn't disappoint . Tried the new Italian restaurant Insieme and it's well worth a visit. A great relaxing week and have booked apartment again. Wouldn't hesitate in recommending Portside to family and friends. - 14th October 2015
A beautiful apartment with a first class outlook and location for exploring the area. The apartment provided everything we needed for a comfortable relaxing week. - 25th September 2015
first class apartment . a super view of the harbour and the boats going out .good food nearby .try the neptune for fresh fish and chips. the apartment is very well equipped for washing and drying with a comprehensively stocked kitchen . you will enjoy your stay - 8th September 2015
Exceptional place to stay, very clean, wonderfully comfortable and well equipped. Modern decor and fittings. Loved the balconies, views and large beds. Have already recommended to family and friends. - 1st September 2015
The apartment exceeded all expectations. The rooms were spacious and clean and the kItchen well stocked. We slept well and the views were amazing. We did find the sofa a little uncomfortable but that is our personal preference and did not detract from our experience. We would highly recommend and are looking forward to returning. - 18th August 2015
The apartment was fantastic, comfortable and everything we needed, spacious for 2 adults and a nine year old! The secure parking and outside store (for buckets and spades etc) also a bonus :-) - 11th August 2015
The apartment was fantastic, comfortable and everything we needed, spacious for 2 adults and a nine year old! The secure parking and outside store (for buckets and spades etc) also a bonus :-) - 11th August 2015
Highly recommended place to stay - especially great for kids with the best rock pools being just across the road and crazy golf almost next door. Great views from the windows. Food at the new Italian restaurant is very nice (not cheap) but service was very slow - so take things to entertain the little one if you sit-in. Not very impressed by the Indian restaurant (don't remember the name but it was the closest one - maybe the other one at the roundabout is better?). If you like birds - book an 'experience' at the bird-of-prey centre at the Barn at Beal - Andy is very knowledgeable and makes it fun! (The food at the Barn is also excellent - and look out for the TV/live feed of cars crossing the causeway to Holy Island!). When planning a trip to the Farne Islands and if you don't have good sea legs check the 'bigsalty' website to see how big/small the swell will be. If you plan to see the castle on Holy Island it closes at 4pm - so check the tide times so you have enough time at the castle (it's a 15-20min brisk walk from the car park). - 28th July 2015
Great place to stay. Beautiful apartment and well maintained. Really enjoyed exploring the area, especially loved the bird watching on the Farne Islands with the puffins and other wonderful seabirds. - 14th July 2015
We stayed as a group of four adults and were all very impressed with the standard of fittings, cleanliness and location of Portside 6, so much so we have booked to stay again in 2016. - 29th June 2015
Had a lovely week here - apartment was perfect. Clean, comfortable, well equipped and with great views out to the Farnes. Also was very quiet for an apartment block. Will definitely be returning. - 2nd June 2015
Great location and views from the apartment. Very clean and tidy, very well furnished. Kitchen had everything you could of needed if you were too cook. Great stay, many thanks. - 26th May 2015
A fantastic apartment close to the sea and a short walk to all local amenities. It was very well equipped , comfortable and spotlessly clean. The interior was so in tune with its location that you felt like it was almost an extension of the superb views outside. Would say that it is the nicest apartment we've ever stayed in and have booked again for September. - 29th April 2015
Excellent flat with coastal views on your doorstep and Seahouses just minutes away. Secure parking and a lock up shed for bikes. Access to Leisure Club although there is a charge which is not a selling point; we didn't bother. - 8th April 2015
One of the best holidays I have ever had. Everything was perfect, the apartment, the location and even the weather was great. Highly recommended it to anyone. - 8th October 2014
Lovely apartment. Nice little seaside town. Great beer in The Ship - a must do. So much to do in the area. The apartment just tops it all off. Thanks. - 1st October 2014
Most mornings we started the day with a coffee on the balcony at the front of the apartment, watching the activity in the harbour and sea, the dog walkers, joggers etc etc! So we were well set up for the day ahead - exploring the coast and countryside - the plentiful books and leaflets in the apartment helped us decide what to visit/do. And Seahouses has plenty of shops and places to eat. - 15th September 2014
Portside apartment was very modern and stylishly decorated, with everything you would need for a break away from home. The location really can't be beaten, with only a few minutes walk to the shops, pubs and cafes of Sea houses. The views from the balconies were lovely and we enjoyed watching the boats coming and going from the harbour. In a favourite area of ours, Seahouses is a great base to explore the surrounding towns and villages. We would certainly book this apartment again when we are next back in the area. - 5th August 2014
An excellent apartment in a very good location - would worry about peak season disturbance from caravan site at rear. Very well equipped with everything that one requires for a holiday - 17th June 2014
Great location and nice modern apartments with everything we could need for our stay. Twin beds were on the small side but we were 8 golfers with only two under 6 foot so that's more about us than the beds!!. Thanks again - 2nd May 2014
Right on the seafront, just a 5 minute walk from the shops, harbour and pubs of Seahouses - fantastic location for exploring the Northumberland coast and the hills, castles, wildlife and history of Northumberland, including the National Park. It’s literally 30 seconds walk from the beach, which is just over the road, with fantastic views of Bamburgh castle at the end a 3 mile long beach – this is a lovely walk. The apartment itself is superb, we found it impossible to think of anything it didn’t have already - everything from the fixtures and fittings to the decoration is of the highest standard. The attention to detail is outstanding. I’m generally not inclined to use superlatives but in this case they are well deserved. Once you’re in for the evening it’s very comfortable: warm, cosy, and relaxing, and it’s lovely to lie in bed listening to the sea or watching TV! I would highly recommend this place to lovers of the outdoors, walkers, cyclists, bird watchers and to lovers of homes comforts. I can say without hesitation, that we’ll be back here again. - 14th December 2013
