Contemporary twist on the seaside theme

The fresh, bright accommodation is a contemporary twist on the seaside theme. The owner’s impressive attention to detail is reflected in the delightful quirky details throughout. There are cosy fabrics, interesting local artwork, seaside themed lamps and other objets d’art sourced from local boutiques and antique shops.

The cosy seating area includes a log burner for the cooler months finished off with an impressive stone lintel above the fireplace which was found on the owner’s farm. The sleek, contemporary eat-in kitchen is well equipped with all mod cons including a wine cooler!

Location

Seahouses is a popular holiday resort sitting within the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and features a bustling working harbour, beautiful beaches, and a pretty coastal village with an array of friendly shops, cosy pubs, cafes and restaurants. It is seen as the gateway for sea voyages to the Farne Islands and is a fantastic base to explore the wider Northumberland area.

Greengate is situated just a short walk from the shops and amenities of the village in one direction and the pretty harbour area in the other, and you will find plenty of good eating places nearby. You can experience the rich maritime connections of The Old Ship Inn for tasty food and a good selection of real ales while soaking-up the unique nautical features of this characterful pub; or the Bamburgh Castle Inn situated above the old lime kilns by the harbour is another popular choice serving a menu full of fresh local flavours with lovely panoramic sea views from its terrace and beer garden. There is always a fresh supply of fish and seafood on the restaurant menus in this area, and fans of the traditional British takeaway can savour some of the best lightly battered fish and chips whilst watching the comings and goings of life on the quayside here.

Most of the shopping in Seahouses is on the Main Street which has a newsagents, bakery, chemist, fishmongers, olde-worlde sweet shop, as well as gift shops and a small Co-op supermarket. More extensive shopping, local producers, and a number of large supermarkets can be found in the historic market town of Alnwick which sits just 15 miles south of Seahouses.

Reviews

"We had a nice stay in Greengate. The owners were very kind and courteous to us. The cottage was comfy and perfectly located for all that Seahouses has to offer. We would like to return one day."

McPadden family

"We had a lovely holiday in Seahouses. Greengate was without a doubt the nicest and most comfortable accommodation we have ever stayed in. It was extremely clean and the owner had left some milk, cake, strawberries, handmade soaps and a local newspaper for us which was a lovely surprise and much appreciated on our arrival."

Quinn family

"The owners were very helpful and helped make our holiday one to remember. The cottage and the location were perfect and the weather cooperated also so we don't think we can offer anything to improve the service and accommodation."

Oliver family

"I can't say enough about Greengate - simply superb! Location is a firm ten out of ten - we had so many fantastic walks out to the harbour, beach, castle. Seahouses is fantastic for choice & quality of restaurants - you can't go wrong. Took the girls horse riding - brilliant! Thanks for the mega communication and lovely thoughts of birthday cake & fizz - perfect! We'll definitely use Crabtree & Crabtree again."

Webster family

"We had a fantastic stay at Greengate, it is easily the nicest holiday cottage we have stayed in. It was so comfortable and homely, and little touches like a pint of milk in the fridge made it really welcoming. The decor is lovely and it had absolutely everything we needed. We will certainly be heading back for another visit and would love to stay at Greengate again, we are thinking about bringing family along with us!"

Pederson family

"Lovely accommodation with lots of personal touches like the jam and the cute soaps. Especially loved the mattress toppers. Comfy and cosy stay. All in all, great stay and would recommend to friends."

Banks family

"We've just returned home following our lovely week away in Seahouses. We'd never been to Northumberland before, and had a wonderful time exploring the beautiful coastline. The house was lovely & warm, very cosy and an ideal base - we loved it!"

Quigg family

"We absolutely loved the cottage, it was like a home away from home with everything that you need for an enjoyable stay. It was nice to be somewhere that was cosy, comfortable and very clean. It was furnished to a high standard and it was a great location. We would recommend the cottage to anyone. The cake left for us was a lovely touch. Thanks for having us."

Spencer family

"We had a lovely time at Greengate in Seahouses. The house was everything you said it would be. Beautifully equipped, the owners had catered for everything. Beds, linen all good quality, as was the kitchen equipment. The situation was just as we hoped, short walk to harbour and shops. Our grandsons liked being able to go outside in the garden. Please pass on our thanks to the owners for helping to make our week away with our grandchildren so enjoyable."

Cowman family

"We had a fantastic time at Greengate, the perfect holiday let it would have been the type of property you would buy yourself as a holiday home. Well presented, clean, comfortable beds, every pot and pan you would require. The eggs, milk, lovely cake and canvas folding bag was a super touch. Would highly recommend and would book again. We had friends visit for a meal who were staying nearby, they were very impressed with the high standard of the holiday home. Loved the fact that we could leave the car on the drive with a short walk to the harbour and we walked to Beadnell and back walking over the golf course and on the beach brilliant."

Summer family

"We had a wonderful stay at Greengate in Seahouses. We couldn't fault the whole process from booking to completion. The cottage was ideal as a centre for visiting the local area and the facilities in the cottage were second to none with everything you could possible need for a self catering holiday. The cottage was warm, cosy and comfortable and it's situation close the town with all of it's facilities such as pubs, restaurant, shops and harbour were ideal. Great five day break, thank you."
