We recently spent three nights at this fantastic B & B - the best one we've stayed at. It is a fabulous location opposite the Farne Islands. From the minute we arrived we were made very welcome and comfortable. Judy is a wonderful hostess with a very good knowledge of the local area and she makes the best ever breakfast.... More

Just home after a night away in Seahouses. Glorious weather, though cold, so this fantastic B&B was perfect. Cosy and with the most incredible view of the Farne Islands from our bed in the Longstone room. Close to Seahouses for a meal we chose an excellent Indian. Breakfast from Judy was superb as was the conversation with her and other... More

As other reviewers have stated this B & B is in an excellent location and Judy the owner provides a wonderful service. We chose to stay here because of the promised views from the bedrooms, unfortunately for us we chose to stay in November on the two days the weather was at it's worst, so the views were just of...

Judy, resident owner , is very knowledgable, welcoming and loves to chat. She makes fab fruit salad as well as a good cooked breakfast with excellent kippers.. The views from the front two double bedrooms are fabulous and only yards from the North Sea with views of the Farnes. This makes up for the fact they are small and there... More

gunrockseahouses, Owner at Gun Rock, responded to this review

Thank you for your review but to correct the inaccuracies though, there are two easy chairs in this room, one modern and one traditional, plus a full size kingsize bed. The room is not as large as you would get at a country house hotel (and about half the price) and I have certainly stayed in a lot smaller. I... More

Fabulous views from the Longstone room out to sea. Weather was cold when we visited, but the room and house were like toast. Easy 5 minute walk back into Seahouses. Judy's welcome was warm and the breakfasts were superb - especially the kippers, and home made marmalade which you must try!
