Wow! What an amazing place! We recently spent 4 nights at the Old Salt Cottage and it was brilliant. The cottage is beautiful; the owners have made it so comfortable, cosy and welcoming but with a modern feel. We were really impressed at how well equipped the cottage was; self-catering for four adults (and one labrador!) in the kitchen was no problem and we loved browsing the thoughtfully placed books in the lounge.
There were so many other lovely touches throughout the cottage such as shortbread, rock, wine, milk and dog treats, plus the postcards in the kitchen were fab! There's definitely a feeling of generosity throughout the cottage, you can tell the owners have really thought about and value their guests' experiences.
I highly I recommend this cottage, plus the communication we had from the owners was brilliant. Seahouses itself is beautiful and Old Salt Cottage is the perfect base from which to explore. It was lovely to be able to pop out for a few hours but then come back to the cottage to relax. Thanks Claire & Kevin, I hope we can come back soon! x
I've just returned from a long weekend at Old Salt Cottage with my husband and two small children (ages 2&4).
The cottage is in a perfect location with plenty of places to choose from for a nice meal and the beach only a few minutes walk away.
The cottage has such a homely feeling and now the second time I have stayed. The first time was with friends but it was ideal for being there with my children also. They loved the house and the travel cot we took fitted in perfectly in the twin bedroom which meant the girls could share a room.
We tried out a couple of recommendations from the old salt cottage website-Bamburgh Castle and the Barn at Beal which served up a delicious Sunday Roast.
I have no hesitation in recommending Old Salt Cottage and will definitely be coming back.
Excellent location, really close to the harbour, beach and shops. Beautiful, clean house with lots of essentials included. The parking space around the back of the house was extremely useful. Would definitely recommend Old Salt Cottage and we would love to come back and stay there again.
Myself husband and dog stayed for four days for my husbands 50th birthday weekend - it was fab everything had been thought of from washing up items to games and cds to dog biscuits, wine and even seaside rock / the rooms were spacious and spotlessly clean and comfortable and we even had our own parking space outside. We will definitely be back as seahouses is a beautiful place and a great base. Thank you for having us!
