"This was our first visit to Seahouses and Northumberland. An outstanding area and a wonderful trip made even better by the incredibly comfortable, clean, spacious and well equipped Abaft Cottage. everything was as described and a lot more besides. the location is perfect ... right on the Harbour. you could easily lose a few hours watching the comings and goings. Alex is the perfect host. Very helpful and communicative. I felt as though I could have asked her anything at any time and it wouldn't have been a bother. I can highly recommend Abaft as a place to stay and Alex as the perfect host.."

"In our view, the description barely does justice to this place. It really is a fantastic place to stay. We loved being right in the harbour and able to watch all the comings and goings - fishing and a variety of trips from dawn to dusk - and the views across to the Farnes and Holy Island. It is a perfect base for trips to all parts of this coast - whether by car, on good or by bus. The property is well equipped with good quality fittings and appliances and everything seem to have been thought of. Communication with Alex was first rate"

"Pleasant and prompt communication. Kitchen fittings/equipment and furniture were of lovely quality, everything very clean and comfortable in the house. The location was fab, everything is walkable in the town. Can't wait to come back! Thank you Alex."

"Can't say anything but to agree with all the other good reviews. Have never stayed anywhere better for location and cleanliness. Watching all the boats working was really interesting and the views from the window were just amazing you can even see Holy island. Don't hesitate to book it you won't regret it."

"The cottage was very clean, with modern fittings and heating, and had everything that we needed. Despite being on the harbour it was quiet and there was never a problem with parking. The upstairs room is cosy and has a wonderful view over the sea, perfect to watch the sunrise and the tides. Seahouses has a good range of shops and there are plenty of places to visit within a 30 minute drive."

"Everything as described. Excellent location with amazing views. You don’t need to turn the TV on, just look out the window. 10/10"

"We absolutely loved the cottage. The location was perfect. As others have said, there was always something to see from the window, we even had the lifeboat being towed past one evening! We are familiar with Seahouses and the surroundings so it was great to introduce our grandchildren to the castles and beaches. The cottage was very warm and comfortable and had everything we wanted/needed. My granddaughter loved doing the jigsaw! The twins are 11 and the bunk bed arrangement worked very well for them. My grandson has already told his Mum he wishes he was back in the lovely cottage! There were still things we haven’t done, so we’ll definitely come back, perhaps a bit later in the year when the sea is a bit warmer! Many thanks, Alex, for a lovely holiday.!"

"We loved our stay at Abaft Cottage. Location for us as avid sailors and 'boat watchers' was perfect and we loved watching the comings and goings in the harbour. The cottage was absolutely spotless, warm and comfortable. Alex was a superb host, communicating and responding super fast and it was all really easy. We had everything we needed and thoroughly enjoyed our short break in Seahouses. We are keen to return in the not too distant future as it's a perfect place for unwinding.!"

"We had a lovely stay in this lovely place. Alex is a fantastic host. Excellent communication, lovely clean cottage. The location is fantastic and view of the harbour so lovely. We never had the tv on once as no need with the view outside. Teens and dog loved the beach which was so clean."

"The cottage is beautiful, spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable and very well equipped. But the location is outstanding, you could sit all day and watch the activity in the harbour right in front of you, so relaxing. Pubs/restaurants on the doorstep, lots of places to visit. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to come back soon, thank you Alex."

"My partner, two sons (8 and 4), and I had a super three night stay at Alex’s house. The location is first class. We loved the views and the harbour setting. There were many amenities on the doorstep and there was so much to do in the vicinity. The house itself is very well presented and clean. We could easily have stayed another few nights. I would recommend and would love to return."
