About Rachel stockwell allen

Mad, loud family and other animals :-) Mixed interests and needs so this suits all.

The detached home and spacious feel means that we can be ourselves with plenty of space to be as free as we like. Perfect.!

Rachel stockwell allen purchased this bungalow in 2009

Why Rachel stockwell allen chose Seahouses

Fell totally in love with this area and coast some years ago after booking a break like this one.

This property s unique as we have created it with much thought and love .

We never intended to rent out so this business was indeed born from a love of the house , it’s memories and the area and not just basically a business from the start .

This home has grown with our family over the years with TLC and now our kids are mainly adults we still return to get ' that feeling' that family is everything and to experience the simplest pleasures of life near the sea .

The house is good for everyone , toddlers run free , moms and dads chill , teenagers explore or hide in their annexe or anyone of any age with disabilities of any kind can be totally included too !

All one level and specialist wet room , disabled loo and profile beds

Wild, rugged unspoilt , friendly and worry free, that's how we see this place - Love it.

What makes this bungalow unique

All on one level

Welcome children

Welcome people in wheelchairs and understand the difficulties associated with this which is why we bought expensive profiling medical beds for the annexe , one of which is rise and fall for carers .

Welcome well behaved dogs , max2 unless arranged

Overlooks open fields and so affords privacy and a sense of freedom!

Spacious

Wood burner

The sea / beach on your doorstep.

Very High quality interior

The views over fields at the back are gorgeous and the outdoor area / gardens are private so you are not overlooked at all whilst out barbqueing or drinking wine and listening to the gulls .

The property sleeps 10 + 1 cot ( including the pullout) and linen\towels ( not beach towels) and post stay clean is included .

*** please note that yes the pull out king bed is in the lounge but the lounge can be private at night as no access through needed for loos / kitchen etc .

I haven't come across another stylish , family / walking difficulty friendly/ dog friendly / private aspect single storey house by the beach ;-)

Look forward to hearing from you :-)

Beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

Me and 9 other friends stayed at the house for 4 days. The owner and house keeper both where absolutely brilliant with responses and always reassured us. The house was brilliant, 4 bedrooms - With perfect spacing in terms of wardrobe etc. 2 of the rooms where gorgeous and they had an on suite. The living room was immaculate, the garden etc. There was 2 TVS that was perfect as we could watch things without arguing lol. The house was tremendous and we loved staying there. Overrall its a fantastic holiday home and we loved every minute staying there. We would recommend to anyone so thank you!!!

perfect location for a relaxing stay

  • 4 of 5

The property is spacious andetached well set out with an exceptional disabled annex- on suite with living room. Also perfect if you have older children. Easy to reach the beach and the small town of Seahouses.

The owner was very hospitable and was easy to contact. We liked the spacious longe and having an outside space. Great for family get togethers or a catch up like we had.
