“Very friendly, great sea views from the farne room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2011

Spent six nights at Gunrock b&b. Judy, Michael and Racheal were very friendly with a warm welcome when you arrived. The rooms were clean. We wanted seaviews with a balcony looking out to the Farne Islands and The Farne room had great seaviews to the Farne Islands. Rooms were cleaned everyday to a good standard. Rachael and Michael were very friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make you feel welcome. They both had great local knowledge which were very helpful.
I would definitely say this is the best guesthouse in Seahouses!!! Recommended!!
Special thanks to Judy..

Stayed for 3 nights in May 2011, from the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and at home, which was important as it was our wedding anniversary. The staff went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable including reccomendations for eating out, and even printing bus timetables off the internet for us. The seaview picture on the website does not do the seaview rooms justice. These balcony rooms have a wonderful view of the Farne Islands, Bambrough Castle and Lindisfarne.

We will definitely return

We're glad you found your stay with us special. We agree we're lucky to have good food around here, or otherwise we would have nowhere to recommend.
We are currently updating the photos on our website to show the marvellous views that Gun Rock has to offer. So hopefully future guests can see how lovely it is here.

Went up to North East for the first time - for a wedding so was brief trip on public transport which is rather sketchy. However loved the place - most definitely going back with own transport and would definitely return to Gunrock B&B as a base for a holiday. Clean, cosy, friendly, helpful beyond anything. Thank you

Just spent a long weekend at the Gun Rock Guest House in Seahouses, and left there feeling totally relaxed.
The view from the front room looks straight onto the sea and the inner Farne (Island).
Just a stones throw from Bamburgh and the beautiful sand dunes of Northumberland.
This was a Warm guest house with a warm welcome; from the moment we arrived we were treated like old friends.
Gun Rock is purely a B&B guest house, but the breakfasts (Full English or Scottish) are well worth waking up for!
Our room (on the side of the house) was very comfortable and had a balcony which and looked towards the harbour. En Suite bathroom was warm and roomy and fully equipped.
The room (and bed linen) was immaculate.
situated just over 5 minutes walk from Seahouses main street - the perfect location for nearby pubs and restaurants (The Olde Ship inn and the Bamburgh Castle). as well as the harbour.
Visiting Bamburgh Castle and the Farne islands is a must (if the weather's good enough). We went to nearby Cragside Hall (Rothbury) which was an amazing place.

We were very lucky with the weather, which was blustery but dry, and were treated to moonlit nights and beautiful sunrises.
A Simple Guest house which does what it says on the tin! who needs more than that!

Thanks Judy and ( Amber) for a lovely stay, hope to see you soon
