Harbour Hill House
House | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 12
Aptly named Harbour Hill House brings such an amazing surprise! Only a stone's throw from the thriving harbour of the traditional fishing port of Seahouses, this historic property is positioned on Harbour Hill and has enjoyed a colourful past; once being the main entertainment focus as the village night club in the 70's and then a museum to a gift shop.
With a total makeover recently complete the property is immaculately presented throughout and has been utterly transformed to offer deceptively spacious self catering holiday accommodation to a superior standard. The tasteful furnishings throughout Harbour Hill House are simply divine and purely drip with style. Comfortably accommodating twelve guests within five bedrooms and with four squeaky clean bathrooms this property is the perfect choice for the gathering of the extended family and friends or for those couples looking for something very special! The contemporary fully fitted kitchen with dining area is a large and excellent entertainment space. A wide sweeping staircase provides such a wonderful ambience of grandeur and leads to the main lounge on the first floor; an idyllic space to relax and unwind from a day out at sea - and don't forget to explore behind the book case and discover the secret doorway......
- NEW FOR 2013 YOUR OWN CINEMA / GAMES ROOM WITH 168'' SCREEN, PRO DOLBY 5.1 3D SURROUND SOUND, For the ultimate viewing or gaming experience !! -
Harbour Hill House is a stone built property near the bottom of the main street of Seahouses very close to the harbour and where there are many facilities all within a gentle stroll. The village offers a good range of local shops with tea rooms, pubs and restaurants; the Chinese takeaway and Indian restaurant are well worth sampling. Enjoy a romantic wander around the harbour and watch the trawlers return with their daily catch or take a boat trip to try your luck at fishing or visit the Farne Islands to admire the seal colony and bird sanctuaries. The sweep of golden sands Beadnell Bay is renowned for is only two miles south - a popular destination for water sports enthusiasts and is appealing to those who yearn to roam barefoot in the sand and listen to the lap of the waves against the shoreline.....
Three miles north is the picture postcard holiday village of Bamburgh, protected by its dramatic fortress, which commands the power and presence of the seasoned film set it regularly becomes and where the Grace Darling Museum is interesting to visit. The wide expanse of golden and often empty sandy beaches this region is renowned for is idyllic - the tidal island of Lindisfarne, locally known as Holy Island and the birth place of Christianity, can be viewed from here too. A little further north is the bird sanctuary at Budle Bay and at low tide a vast expanse of mud flats is the home to countless thousands of sea and land birds making this location a haven for bird watchers. The elegant Georgian town of Berwick, which straddles the salmon rich river Tweed, is 20 miles north and the historic market town of Alnwick with its own magnificent castle offers many facilities around 13 miles inland. Alnwick Garden is a popular visitor attraction with its grand cascade waterfall and restaurant set within the largest tree house in Europe.
With five fresh double bedrooms and four pristine bathrooms, Harbour Hill House is an excellent choice for the gathering of up to twelve guests seeking contemporary accommodation within the heart of the popular holiday destination of Seahouses and makes an excellent base to explore the twenty miles of Heritage coastline this region is proud to have designated as An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Northern England region
The Northumberland coast line is an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with miles of golden sandy beaches, Castles and wildlife breeding grounds for grey seals and puffins to name just a few. Gateway to the Farne Islands Seahouses has a busy harbour catering for both a small local fishing fleet and the visitor boats wich go to the Farne Islands.
15 miles south is Alnwick Castle with its world famous Garden. Inland are more castles, historical stately homes and fantastic walking. Cycle routes around quiet local lanes or chunks of longer rides like the Coast and Castle route 1 between Newcastle and Edinburgh. All of which make this a county of many faces, there is literally something for everyone, young and old, activity orientated or sightseeing mad there is just loads to see and do here! And we're confident your break won't be long enough to do it all so you'll just have to come back again and again....
Seahouses, a busy fishing village, is a bustling tourist destination. The harbour area is the departure point for those wishing to visit the Farne Islands, for birdwatching, photography or diving, and the pretty Old Quarter of the village set above the harbour, is laid out in stone built "squares". Once full of fisher girls who splitted, salted & barrelled the herring for the home and European market, the squares have now been converted into a variety of cottages and although some are occupied by families who have lived in the village for many generations.
Visit us in June for the Seahouses Festival and check out the website for other festivals and attractions.
Visit us during May, June, and July to see the Puffins on the Farne Islands.
Seals can be seen all the year round.

"PERFECT FOR A LARGE FAMILY GROUP"
We booked for the Easter week for a party of 13 (age range 3 to 60's via two teenage boys) plus 2 dogs. It is really very hard to fault the accommodation and despite the size of our group there a… More

"Good location but no views, certainly not value for money"
This property is in a good location in Seahouses, however there is no parking near the property and there are double yellow lines outside. The house is behind a pub and has no views. Whilst the decora… More
We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay at Harbourhill house. With reference to the property not having parking , you were aware of this before you booked your holiday, we supply the house with 3 parking permits to allow you to park in the safe carpark less than 1 minute walk from the house, these permits also allow you to park in any Northumberland ran carpark around the area in the whole of Northumberland, which I am sure you will have took full advantage off! Yes there are double yellow lines outside the house but you are allowed a 30 minute window to park outside the house to unload all of your belongings. Considering it took you 5 days after your departure to contact us with the request for a reimbursement it seemed to us that you were just after a cheap holiday.As you were informed in your email from us, had you only contacted us informing us of the dishwasher issue we would have rectified the problem asap and with minimal disruption. A plumber was called out to check the dishwasher and he found nothing wrong( possibly you had put it on the wrong setting). If we the owners of this property are not informed of problems I find it very disappointing that you can review our holiday home as "average" when we are not made aware of any problems.Every bathroom is supplied with luxuries i.e.hand soap, Hand towels, bath sheets bath mat and toilet rolls, i know this for definite as i personally clean this property. Just to reiterate, we had guests staying in the following weekend to you that had a problem with the projector in the cinema room. they had the decency to call us, We went straight down and sorted the problem so their family could enjoy there cinema show for that evening.They were asked if they had a problem with the dishwasher and the answer was NO!To conclude, The dates you stayed equated to £26.38 per person per night how can this possibly be poor value for money considering you get a huge 5 bed-roomed ,everyone with its own t.v, 4 bath-roomed house ,slit over 3 levels containing a cinema room , large kitchen diner sitting upto 14 guests, huge lounge with 50inch t.v, enough space to hold a dance and your own enclosed garden which does back onto a carpark belonging to a respectable hotel, not a pub! We hope that you find somewhere nicer than our property to visit next year. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to express our opinions!This is the 4th year that Harbourhill house has been running and we have hundreds of returning satisfied guests!Kind regards Duncan & Louise
