About the property

Large, fabulous newly built 5 bed holiday home in enviable location

This fabulous newly built holiday home represents everything a coastal holiday should offer. Spacious, large and beautifully furnished, it is ideal for those wanting to be within a minute’s walking distance of village amenities but want a luxurious, quiet retreat to return to.

Sailaway is just one minute’s stroll into the bustling, vibrant village with its working harbour, pubs, eateries, golf course, children's activities, shops and boat trips to the fabulous Farne Islands -a sanctuary for 23 species of bird and seal colonies. Sailaway is also perfectly located for long lazy days on the beach and glorious coastal walks and is just a few minutes’ drive from Bamburgh - famed for its beautiful village and iconic castle.

Visitors to our sister holiday home (Mayflower Cottage) will recognise the attention to detail, which have attracted many positive reviews. Designer wallpapers, nautical styling and furniture from Feather and Black, and Barker and Stonehouse; coupled with the great location ensures that a stay here will feel like a very special holiday.

Due to recent change in how prices are recorded within Owners Direct Website, there have been some incorrect prices shown on the website; if you have any queries, please raise this when you make an enquiry about a booking.

About Elaine Robson

The owners "The McDermotts" fell in love in with this area as children and have an enduring love of the sea and this stunning coastline.

Wherever you hail from, we hope you will both love this area as much as we do. Please relax and unwind and treat Sailaway as your “home from home” – it gives us a huge amount of pleasure when guests tell us that we have helped to create some lovely memories for other families and friends.

Elaine Robson purchased this house in 2014

Why Elaine Robson chose Seahouses

This is the second holiday home that we have bought in Seahouses.

Our first property, Mayflower Cottage, was launched three years ago and was aimed at large groups - family and friends - who wanted something large and luxurious to holiday in. (please check out our ratings on this site)

This has proved to be so successful that we decided to buy another property- also aimed at large groups.

What makes this house unique

Extremely close to restaurants, pubs, harbour, beach, golf and horse riding. Also has ground floor en suite bedroom.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We found this house on the internet and it had everything we needed (lots of bathrooms) as we are a group of friends all meeting up for a great weekend. On arrival access was easy and we thought the cake in the fridge and loaf of bread was very thoughtful.

The garden was lovely, particularly in the sunshine. The kitchen certainly got a workout as several of our group like to cook and they were pleased to find so many pots and pans, serving dishes and everything they needed, even a little welcome pack of cleaning supplies was helpful. The bedrooms were all spacious with large en suite bathrooms to some of them. The house was clean and well supplied with toys for children, books for readers, games to keep everyone amused.

Would recommend!

A truly fabulous large holiday home, beautifully appointed.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sail Away last weekend, celebrating a friends 50th birthday. The house was everything and more we could have wished for. Every detail was thought of, the layout and the large kitchen was perfect for a celebration. All the bedrooms and bathrooms were comfortable and furnished to a very high standard. Good quality towels and bed linen. I look forward to returning with my family.

The house was exactly as described and perfect for a large family celebration with 3 generations

  • 5 of 5

Sail away is in a good location with easy access to beaches, places of interest and leisure facilities. The house was well equipped and my 2 year old grandson was delighted to find toys all over the place. We would all have loved to stay longer and sad to leave after the weekend. I hope that we will be able to return in the future for a longer stay

Sailaway to Seahouses

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a weekend away with friends at Sailaway and want you to know how much we enjoyed it. Thank you 😊?

The house is luxurious, spacious and clean with the fixtures and fittings completed to a high standard, this makes returning to it after a day spent walking along the beautiful Northumberland coastline so much more enjoyable.

The location is great too, with all the amenities of the village on the doorstep.

We hope to return soon and will definitely recommend it to our friends and family.

Excellent family holiday.

We had a lovely stay at Sailaway with all the family while we were celebrating my Dads 70th Birthday. The house was very clean, spacious and it was a lovely touch to have a cream cake in the fridge on arrival. Fantastic break, lots to do, we will definitely recommend it to others.
