Puffin Place is a great little holiday hideaway set in the historic conservation area of Seahouses and is perfect for couples or small families / groups.

The cottage is in a peaceful location but just a minute from the harbour with the Northumbrian Coastal Path just at the end of the lane.

The space
We bought Puffin Place in April 2018 both in order to be able to use the cottage ourselves and hire out to visitors. It takes just an hour to get to from our home in Newcastle, and once there we rarely feel the need to use the car except when we're taking a day-trip to one of the many nearby sites of interest.

In the time we have spent in the Seahouses everyone seems very friendly, even by North-East standards. Seahouses is a 'resort village' with something for everyone and is ideally located in the centre of the Northumbria coastline. All the other attractions of the Northumbria coast are within a short drive: to the north (Bamburgh, Lindisfarne and Berwick); to the south (Craster, Beadnell and Embleton) and inland to Alnwick and a multitude of picturesque villages and other attractions.

The cottage is tucked away in a quiet location in the oldest part of the village, among the smokeries and fishermen's cottages, but just a few minute's walk from the bustling harbour and the centre of the town.

Despite its history - it was built in around 1850 - the cottage has been fully modernised and run as a popular holiday let since 2001.

Guest access
Guests can access the full property, which includes the downstairs living space and kitchen, upstairs master and twin bedrooms and a bathroom / wc.

Puffin Place has dedicated parking for one car in a shared courtyard to the rear.

********** Summer 2020 Cleaning Update **********

Following the emergence of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, we are taking additional cleaning and disinfection measures for all guests at Puffin Place during 2020, to help ensure their safe enjoyment of the cottage.

Further to the usual high standard of cleaning prior to visits, we have introduced a comprehensive cleaning checklist, being personally overseen by the owners, Amanda and Jonathan.

The enhanced cleaning and disinfecting of Puffin Place between stays prioritises:

• cleaning / disinfecting of all surfaces, furniture, door handles, controls and switches, guest information, cutlery, crockery and utensils, linen, key safe, etc;
• provision of cleaning and disinfecting products within the cottage inventory.
• the encouraging of good hand hygiene for guests through provision of hand sanitiser and antibacterial soap products both downstairs and upstairs;
• social distancing during check-in and check-out by providing access to keys through a key safe.

Following booking, one week in advance of your stay, we will be in touch with more comprehensive information about the cleaning and disinfection protocols we are following.

We are Amanda and Jonathan Bailey. We live in Newcastle upon Tyne, around an hour's drive down the coast from Seahouses and bought Puffin Place in April 2018 to use as a home from home, as well as hiring out to visitors. We have two young children, who like us, love to visit Seahouses. Amanda works as a researcher and office manager and Jonathan as a business manager, both in Newcastle. We both love the North East countryside and coast, having been born and raised in the area before returning to the region to live in 2008. We purchased Puffin Place in April 2018 from a couple who bought the cottage in 2013 and liked Seahouses so much that they decided to move there permanently!
