Clean, tidy, comfortable accommodation. Very convenient for town and harbour. Will be booking again for next year.

Cottage was in a good position, very close to the harbour, but is in need of some tender loving care. There was half used packages of various grocery items left in cupboards. For dog owners, no enclosed space to let dogs out and a good 5-10 minute walk to get to any grass. At 1000 for a week this property is not good value for money, 500 would be aRead more better price.

A superb cosy, well appointed cottage in an ideal location for exploring not only Seahouses but also to experience everything else that this stunning area has to offer. The off road parking was a real advantage in the narrow streets. We will certainly be returning.

We have just got home from such a lovely week away. 2 adults and 4 children (plus our little dog) thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location was fantastic, it was immaculately clean and there was everything you needed at the cottage. We would definitely look forward to staying again

Fantastic location and lovely cottage in the heart of Seahouses would recommend and would come back as off street car parking is an added bonus and hard to find in this location. Pet friendly was a plus for us and was ideal for our old lab. Also lovely little welcome goodies were great too.

Reviewed by Rosemary, 25th May 2019

We were pleased to have an off-road parking space outside the cottage, which was very cosy and comfortable. The location was ideal, 50 yards from the harbour and 5 minutes walk to the Main Street with lots of shops and cafes. The plentiful hot water and radiators were very welcome on chilly days.

Herring Masters is in a very good location. The cottage had a very good kitchen, lounge, upstairs & bathroom. We took a fabulous walk from Seahouses to Bamburgh. Beautiful scenery. Great boat trip - we saw lots of seals.

Herring Master is a smart property, with a large parking space and large rooms. Great location just around the corner from the harbour. Off -road parking is a huge bonus on the very narrow lanes of Seahouses. Our favourite activities here are: Walking from Craster to Dunstanburgh then eating an Auctermuchtie (hot bacon and haggis roll)from the fooRead mored van in the ca rpark. Crabbing at Beadnell harbour. A visit to Embleton beach. Boat trip to the Farnes.
