Seahouses is a large village on the rugged North Northumberland coast. Set within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it is best known for its ancient harbour, independent shops and proximity to the Farne Islands, which are among the UK's most renowned wildlife destinations. Seahouses is a working fishing port, and an excellent place to explore the region's maritime culture. Holiday cottages in Seahouses are moments from the coast, where regular boat trips depart to the Farne Islands, David Attenborough's favourite place in Britain. Every summer, around 150,000 breeding pairs of seabird nest on the islands, including razorbills, guillemots and puffins. The islands also have the largest breeding colony of grey or Atlantic seals in England.
Back on the mainland, Seahouses is an excellent place to enjoy spectacular views along the coast, with a pint of ale. From the village itself, the Farne Islands are almost always visible, and several pubs, restaurants and cafes line the pretty high street. The Black Swan Inn is a local favourite, with a cosy fire for the winter months and beautiful harbour views. Self-catering holidays in Seahouses would be incomplete without enjoying fish and chips from Lewis' Fish Restaurant, in the harbour.
Fisherman’s Cottage achieves the rare combination of contemporary chic and traditional charm. The stone-built holiday cottage in Seahouses treats guests to a delightful coastal cottage just a stone’s throw from the harbour and the Northumberland coastline. Sleeps 6. Pets welcome.
