About Bob & Linda Cole

We both grew up in the North East and live here still. We have been regular visitors to Seahouses and the Northumberland area certainly for most of our adult lives. We have holidayed with our children as well as regular day trips in the summer so know these beautiful area's very well. We hope others will enjoy the benefits we love too.

Bob & Linda Cole purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Bob & Linda Cole chose Northumberland Coast

We feel the property is beautifully positioned opposite the Farne Islands and looking North to Bamburgh Castle. and only a 'stones throw' from the beach. We are always rested and refreshed after a visit.

The flat was really lovely and comfortable and everything provided for a week's holiday

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived it was raining! On entering the flat it was really welcoming as the heater was on to take the chill off (in June/July!), a bottle of wine had been left for us which was very much appreciated and it was lovely and comfortable. Just across the road from the beach so enjoyed walks along the beach and had some lovely trips out to Alnwick, Amble, Craster and walked along the cliff to the castle ruins, Berwick on Tweed and walked the walls and explored the town and many more trips out. Our only downside during the week was the weather, really cold all week and one day of heavy rain but it didn't spoil our holiday. It was lovely to be able to sit at the table for breakfast and watch people walking along the beach - really miss that view now that we're home. Would love to revisit Seahouses again at some future time - this was our third visit to the area over the last 15 years.

Owner's Response: Carol So pleased you enjoyed your holiday, the places you visited are on my favourite list. The Elizabethan walls at Berwick are a joy to walk around giving views down the coast and further inland.

Ideal location in Northumberland

  • 5 of 5

The flat is very comfortable and ideally situated if you want to explore the coast, go to the Farne Islands, and visit the Borders. There is everything you need in the apartment to feel at home. You have a wonderful view from the living room. The decoration is lovely and characteristic of seaside houses. We really enjoyed our stay very much!

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in a fantastic location for enjoying the beautiful Northumberland coastline. It is just a few minutes walk from Seahouses harbour from where you can take a boat trip to the Farne Islands and walk amongst the nesting seabirds - including puffins. It is literally just across the road from the vast National Trust Bamburgh beach, which we could see from the lounge.

It's not far from Lindisfarne and Alnwick - and Amble where we watched dolphins playing near the harbour. Even though the week was quite rainy, we enjoyed long, light evenings; the break was definitely good for the soul.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay,We have seen the dolphins outside the harbour at Seahouses but they are not guaranteed and that is what makes it special. I am pleased you got to Amble it is not on the normal visits but is rich in its fishing heritage as well as trips to the Couqet island for Puffin viewings.The fish shop called the Harbour but not on it, but close down one of the terraced streets you get the best fish and chips anywhere.

Fab little place!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, clean apartment just minutes from the beach. Had everything we needed ( apart from a tea towel, but that's easily forgiven). It was the perfect place to stay for a few nights, and easy to find. Would definitely recommend.

Owner's Response: So pleased you enjoyed your stay at Buckets and Spades Katherine - Apologies I forgot to get the tea towels out of the drawer for you I usually leave one on the little pine unit opposite the cooker. If you visit us again they're kept in the drawer there. We look forward to hearing from you when you return to Seahouses thank you for your lovely review of Buckets and Spades. Best regards Linda and Bob Cole

A lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as stated online. It was very well equipped and very comfortable. A good base for visiting places of interest, also a short walk to the town for boat trips and for evening meals. We loved our stay in Seahouses, the people are so friendly and helpful. Northumberland is a beautiful county, I love it.

Alnwick town and Alnwick Castle and Gardens where some of Harry Potter was filmed.

Bamburgh Castle

Visit the Farne Islands by boat from Seahouses to see Grey Seals, Puffins and various other sea birds depending on the season.

There are lots of opportunities for walking in the area from a simple walk North along the beach from Seahouses to Bamburgh and a variety of coastal walks, to a much different experience of walking in the Cheviot Hills.
