“A Relaxing Retreat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

We love it here so much that we have stayed twice a year for the past three years. Sue and Steve always give you a warm welcome, both rooms are beautifully clean and comfortable, a delicious breakfast awaits you each morning and the location is perfect. A relaxing retreat in a beautiful corner of England. Thankyou both for another truely relaxing stay.

Room Tip: Both rooms are equally comfortable.

When we first visited Spindrift we headed our review 'Arrive as a stranger, leave as a friend'. We were therefore not surprised that during out latest visit every other guest that arrived was on a return visit. This is certainly place to which you will wish to return again and again. Steve and Sue could not be bettered as hosts - they have a way of making you feel very much at home from the moment that you come through the door and are anxious to help you in every way possible. All your needs will be catered for. One treat that we love is the home made cake provided by Sue - something different every day - and ideal to take out for a mid-morning or mid afternoon snack. And when it comes to the Spindrift breakfast, it has to be seen to be believed. No hotel and no b&b has matched this breakfast in our many years of travelling. Read through the other reviews and you will begin to get at least some indication of the quality you can expect - and as I say in the title Steve and Sue deserve every single accolade that they have received.

Spindrift is the ideal base for a break on the Northumberland coast. We relaxed into holiday mode the minute we walked into this wonderfully welcoming B&B. Sue and Steve are the perfect hosts from the minute you arrive to the point of departure. The rooms are immaculate and well equipped, but it's the little touches, the home made cake, fresh milk in the room, locally sourced food, that set Spindrift apart from the rest.

We are a little sceptical of ratings, but Spindrift fully deserves it's ***** classification. Why isn't it No.1 in Seahouses? The house is the well appointed, as the estate agents say, but Steve and Sue make sure it is much more than that, it's home from home.

The house itself is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac around five minutes walk from the shops and harbour. While we were there we took one of the many boat trips out to the Farne Islands, densely populated with seals, puffins and gulls - just watch out for the Arctic Terns; they are spiteful little bastards! Seahouses is also the perfect base for trips to Lindisfarne, Alnwick and Bamburgh Castle. If you like a pint, The Ship and The Bamburgh Castle serve a lovely selection, and if you like Italian food we can't recommend Élan Pizzeria highly enough.

All in all, we had a fantastic break in Seahouses, and Spindrift was the icing on the cake. Oh, and their full English is the perfect start to the day. We can't recommend this B&B highly enough, and look forward to going back soon.

Room Tip: Going to the Farne Islands? Take a large hat!

Truly a home from home experience. Made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived until we left. Nothing was to much trouble for this really genuine couple. Would have no hesitation in recommending spindrift to visitors in this area.

Just returned from a 2 night stay at Spindrift. Thought we hadn't got the right place when we first rocked up as the property is a detached new build and in my head B & Bs are victorian terraces or town houses. Spotlessly clean with a choice of breakfast that you select from a questionnaire the night before. Meant to ask Sue before we left today where she got her eggs from - had poached egg on toast this morning and they were very, very tasty. Homemade bread that made my husband drop hints about dusting the breadmaker off again. Steve and Sue are lovely people who are friendly but not overbearing. Steve will give you lots of info if you need it and there is lots of info in the rooms to allow you to pursue it at your leisure. Would like to come back another time when the weather is better as it was damp and overcast, which was a shame. Thanks for your hospitality. x

Traveled as two couples for 3 nights in March. A very warm welcome from Steve on arrival, who then asked all our names and introduced us to Sue. The rooms were spotless clean, with kettle, tea and coffee. Nice hot powerfull shower. The full English breakfast was made to perfection. Fresh fruit and cereals as required. Steve gave us the use of his garage to store our bikes. Sue makes her own bread and cakes, Different cake each day in our room was very welcoming after a day of Northumberland air. Nothing was too much trouble for these genuine people. Will be back in the summer.

I feel lucky to have stayed at Spindrift for a couple of days in windy February. Steve and Sue look after you as if their lives depended on it. But without it being false or fawning. They are thoughtful, kind, funny, generous, decent, informative etc. I don't normally write reviews but on this occasion I am making an exception. Thanks Steve and Sue! See you again - be warned though, next time there may be three or more of us!
