    About this property

    Ideal location for a family holiday in this colourful seaside village, with shared use of an indoor heated swimming pool.
    "Views towards Bamburgh Castle over harbour and sea – within two miles of Beadnell’s sweeping sands .
    .". With fine views across the little harbour and its working quayside (not Gull’s Crest or Crag End), Farne House Holiday Homes are within a few hundred yards of the shops, restaurants, inns and other amenities of the fishing village and colourful seaside resort of Seahouses. Converted and refurbished to extremely high standards throughout, the properties here are grouped around a central courtyard only yards away from a fine indoor heated swimming pool and sauna (at extra cost and payable direct to the owner). Available all the year round, the pool has a constant depth of 4ft 6in and features a south-facing glass sun living room to one side.
    Within easy walking distance, the bustling harbour boasts a fleet of brightly painted fishing cobbles and a few larger boats, and the town itself provides a good range of facilities, including golf, sailing and horse riding. There are calm weather boat trips to the offshore Farne Islands, a wildlife sanctuary for puffins, oyster-catchers, kittywakes, guillemots and grey seals. The 28 islands form a nature reserve owned by the National Trust and, though half of them are submerged at high tide, landing is allowed daily in summer on the largest, Farne Island – where there is a nature trail, lighthouse and 14th-century chapel.
    At Beadnell, 2 miles to the south, the dune-backed sands of Beadnell Bay provide ideal conditions for water sports. Formerly an important fishing village and smugglers’ haunt, Beadnell now enjoys a reputation as a centre for sailing and has the unique distinction of being the only East Coast port with a west-facing harbour. The sandy beach running the length of the bay is safe for swimming and is overlooked by 18th-century lime kilns. In the village stands a three-storey, 16th-century peel tower, which now forms part of an inn. Five minutes’ drive to the north of Farne House Holiday Homes stands the mighty fortress of Bamburgh Castle, easily visible across the wide stretch of sand from Seahouses.
    Just a few miles further on is yet more historical, natural and scenic interest at Holy Island. Here, the fairytale Lindisfarne Castle was first a 16th-century fort, then a ruin which was redesigned by Edwin Lutyens in 1902 and is now owned by the National Trust.
    Inland is a country of massive hills and moors, fast rivers and great forests. Between the Cheviots and the sea, there is easy touring through fields of corn and pastures dotted with solid stone hamlets and lined by dry-stone walls which patchwork the countryside. Shops 500 yards.

    The seven cottages at Farne House enjoy the use of a superb indoor heated swimming-pool provided for the exclusive use of only these cottages.

It is heated and benefits from the latest purification and de-humidification system. With its sunny, south-facing glassed conservatory lounge to one side, this all-weather facility makes Farne House a fine choice for a Northumberland coastal holiday, whatever the season. There is an additional charge for this and is payable direct to the owner.

    Linda ‐ 13 Oct 2018
    "Perfect location within Seahouses, good facilities and very comfortable."
    Sara ‐ 5 Oct 2018
    "The accommodation was very clean and comfortable but dated. The extra money for the leisure facilities was not good value. The pool was very cold and we were unable to use any of the showers in the leisure area as the thermostat was broken and some of the wood panelling in the sauna is coming off the wall."
    Moira ‐ 18 Sep 2018
    "Swimming pool disappointing - notice saying not to use both showers, no changing area. Parking difficult as no designated bays.Lounge comfortable and everything very clean (lack of drying facilities and washing powder)."
    Denise ‐ 1 Sep 2018
    "The Cottage is in an excellent position, clean and reasonably well equipped and the use of the swimming pool a bonus, however the double bed and the seating in the lounge were uncomfortable. There was no vacuum cleaner and the steepness and amount of stairs in the property not ideal for arthritic knees and small children."
    Mary ‐ 16 Jul 2018
    "Very obviously in need of an update in furnishings and decor. A shower in the bathroom is really a necessity these days. Information concerning the cottage should be left in a more visible place. We thoroughly enjoyed the swimming pool but disappointed that the shower did not work. We were very happy with the location and the availability of parking."
    Rin ‐ 4 Jul 2018
    "Crag End is a nice property which could do with bringing up to date. It reminded me of my mother-in-laws house, and had the same moth ball smell. It is in a very convenient position for shops and the harbour, or for sitting on a bench overlooking the sea. The property has no views, which was a little disappointing given the price. The beds were comfortable, the property was very clean. I was a bit disappointed that there was no way to make fresh coffee (coffee machine, coffee pot) as fresh coffee is very popular nowadays.We have stayed in many seaside properties over the years, and whilst this was clean and comfortable, we would probably not return."
    Jane ‐ 26 May 2018
    "A comfortable place to stay if you don't mind lots of stairs. Kitchen equipment is ok, but could do with more mugs."
    Andrea ‐ 14 May 2018
    "The apartment could in no way be described as luxurious. the furniture was old and the sofa and chairs very stained All other areas were clean , but dated.there was a cupboard full of the last guests food - which sometimes happens in cottages, however, not opened biscuits and chocolates!!It seems bit mean to have no tea / coffee / sugar just to get people started"
    Elizabeth ‐ 24 Feb 2018
    "Wonderful stay again in this amazing setting"
    Janet ‐ 17 Feb 2018
    "One of the best places"
