Contemporary style, absolutely spotless. Great attention to detail, every little thing had been thought through. Great breakfasts, enjoyed the fresh fruit salad and Food Heroes kipper! Genuinely nice, helpful and knowledgable owner. Stunning views across to Farne Islands from front bedroom. Highly recommended.

We have just enjoyed a week at Gun Rock B&B at Seahouses. The owner Judy is very friendly and will give good advice on things like where to eat and will book Farne Island trips, etc. Everything is good quality and clean.

Cannot fault, room and facilities excellent, as was the price. The breakfast was locally sourced with a good range on offer. Located on the coast allowed for stunning views, sunrise on Sunday especially memorable. Will be visiting again.
