About Elaine Robson
Hello, I fell in love with this area ten years ago and hope to retire here one day. There is something very tranquil and spiritual about this area which works its magic on you and I put my heart and soul into creating a beautiful "home from home" so you can relax and enjoy this stunning coastal area too.
Elaine Robson purchased this House in 2011
Why Elaine Robson chose Seahouses
It is beautifully furnished and wonderfully located. Mayflower Cottage is located just three minutes walk from miles of beautiful sandy beaches and is a ten minute stroll from Seahouses. From here, you can take a boat trip to the Farne Islands, which will prove a big draw with all the family. There is no need to use the car if you wish to remain close to the beach - just stroll out the house and load the children into buggies and away you go! The area is famous for its many stunning castles, superb beaches, surfing at nearby Beadnell Bay, historic villages and the historic and fascinating Holy Island.
What makes this House unique
Visitors at Mayflower Cottage benefit from membership to a local private gym and beauty club in Seahouses, where for a small fee you can use the gym or swim or sauna; there is always something for the family to do whatever the time of year or weather.

Amazing family home by the sea!
Wow - what a fabulous property! We'd seen the pictures and knew a little about the area before our group made up of young families came to stay, but it didn't prepare us for how wonderful the house would be, and what a fabulous location for visitors with children. The house is huge, was spotless, well-maintained, nicely decorated, beds were gorgeously comfy, and every extra touch or piece of equipment you could think of was included, such as stair gates, DVDs, toys, books and plastic cutlery and crockery for the children, and an excellently equipped kitchen, blankets to huddle under the stars on the patio, magazines, books and a welcome hamper for adults. Everything has been thought of, and no expense spared, in making this a true luxury home-from-home. As for the area - there's a small park outside the door, and it's less than a 5 minute walk to the sand dunes and a glorious expanse of sandy beaches - the children were in their element. Within an easy drive are many castles, parks and day trips. We were lucky with the weather but there looks to be a lovely pool, soft play and plenty of cafes and restaurants to visit on the doorstep for rainy days. We can't wait to come back, we have many happy memories from our stay here which will stay with us long into the future. Thank you!

Gorgeous house and great location
This house was perfect for myself and 9 others celebrating my 60th birthday. It was roomy, decorated to a high standard, well equipped with gorgeous furnishings. It was in a great location...a 15 minute walk into Seahouses and a short drive to Bamburgh. I would highly recommend this property.
