About John Nicholson

We are a couple from Durham who have owned the property for 10 years using it as a holiday home where we have enjoyed many enjoyable holidays. We recently decided to let the property and have completely redecorated and refurnished it to make a quality holiday experience which we hope you will enjoy.

Why John Nicholson chose Northumberland Coast

We love the Northumberland coast and surrounding area it is one of the hidden gems of Britain. Wonderful beaches, numerous castles and attractions as tranquil or hectic as you want to make it.

We would welcome any comments after your stay so that we can ensure a first class service.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is located within 5 minute walk of the beach, harbour and facilities of the village.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"What a lovely place to stay comfortable, spotlessly clean and close to everything you require, a great relaxing break"

David Henderson, Durham.

"The cottage is ideally situated for touring the many attractions in Northumberland, being not too far from any of them, especially Bamburgh Castle which is just three miles away. The house is spotlessly clean and well furnished and has all the bits and pieces you would need for a self catering holiday. Seahouses centre and late shops etc are just a five minute stroll and there's an excellent characterful pub 'The Old Ship' for evening meals. We ate there most evenings! To sum up; this is certainly one of the best self-catering holiday homes we've experienced and we'll certainly book it again."

A very comfortable house near all amenities

  • 5 of 5

This house was all we could wish for in a holiday rental. It was clean, well-equipped and nice little extras made it feel like a home. It is a short walk into Seahouses - either by coastal path of road. We would certainly recommend it.

Had a great holiday and loved the location, so close to the sea.

  • 4 of 5

Niggly little things, hence the 4 stars. We were spoilt last year with perfection and know it is hard to please everyone. Oven wasn't very pleasant. Front door lock was tricky. Tea towels would be helpful but generally we had all we needed. Comfy beds and plenty of storage. Would recommend.

Lovely place, very handy for all amenities

  • 5 of 5

Lovely clean property- very well equipped with everything you'd need to self cater. The house is really near the centre of the village and its very easy to get to shops and the beach. There's a bus stop very nearby so you can explore the coast to the north and south.

The house is a lovely welcoming place decorated tastefully with a maritime theme - there are two bathrooms and a loo downstairs so its so easy for the family to get ready in the morning.

We loved the puffin tea pot and mugs and loved the fudge and wine. Thanks so much we had a great time in Northumberland and definitely would recommend it
