This was not our first time staying at the Olde School House B&B and it won't be our last! Over the last couple of years I have arranged a diving trip for a group of friends and have been staying here as the B&B is run by Joan the wife of Andrew, one of the boat skippers. Each time we have received a warm welcome from Joan and Andrew. The rooms are lovely and all immaculately clean. All the rooms have en-suite bathrooms and tea/coffee making facilities plus there is a fridge in the guest area. The rooms are lovely and warm (our stays are late in the year to dive with the seal pups) which is just what you need after diving. The breakfasts are lovely and they are timed for the dive boat. This B&B is also handy as you can walk into Seahouses in the evening for dinner. A great place to stay for diving and exploring the beautiful surroundings. Looking forward to visiting again in October.

We stayed as a group before diving around the Farne Islands. The rooms were roomy and very comfortable. Breakfasts were delicious and we were made very welcome by Joan. I normally struggle to sleep on a first night away anywhere - but not here! Slept like a log! I would highly recommend this accommodation as it is away from the main road and quiet (except for the odd seagull). If you are thinking about visiting Northumberland, then give this B&B a go. You won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Rooms 1/2/4 are great for couples. 3 & 5 are good for families.

I have stayed in many B & Bs over the years and this one is the best one yet. From the moment we met Joan she made us feel very welcome. Nothing was too much for her and she even provided a bed for our Border Collie. Our room was spotlessly clean, the bed very comfortable and the breakfast was great. If we would have had more time we would have loved to have gone on a cruise on Andrew's boat. Joan and Andrew have two lovely well-behaved children.
A big thank you Joan and if we're ever in Seahouses again we won't go past you.

This was our second visit and will be back for a third. Stayed 2 nights in this lovely family B&B. Comfortable rooms and bed with en suite. Very Clean .
We were made to feel like a family member. Good range of breakfast on offer.
Lovely family consists of Joan , Andrew, Charley and Archie.The most friendliest dog "Bud" I have ever seen who loves sailing!! We also got introduced to the latest family members 4 mallard chicks who just turned up one night for B&B and have stayed nearly 2 weeks.
Thats how good this place is - a real gem.

Room Tip: Great rooms - ours looked out on garden where mallard chicks were. There is a large fridge for comm...

For myself and 6 friends this was the 1st stay over on our recent coast and castles cycle ride.Following a day of riding our bikes into 50mile an hour head winds this B&B was a welcome sight-the rooms were all comfortable and exceptionally clean with excellent showers in all the rooms.
The owners were very welcoming and even offered to drive us to the pub to save our weary legs.
The breakfast was fantastic and set us up perfectly for the onward journey.
This was without doubt the best B&B we used on our 3 night trip.Would certainly recommend it .

After a few bad weeks we needed a place in Northumberland to stay for a couple of nights break
We know the area well and this was perfect for what we needed with our 2 wee westie dogs
The room was very comfortable and the breakfast hit the spot..I must add the coffee was great (and I'm fussy)
We will be back !!

We stayed here for 1 night in August on a mini tour of Northumberland. Really nice place, clean & tidy and very welcoming. Feels more like your a guest in their house than a conventional B&B. Room was very comfortable and the breakfast was really good. We also used the owner's boat 'Serenity' to have a sail around the Farne Islands which is highly recommended and good value for money. Location is great, only a short walk to the centre of Seahouses and the Harbour.
