With fine views across the little harbour and its working quayside (not Gull’s Crest or Crag End), Farne House Holiday Homes are within a few hundred yards of the shops, restaurants, inns and other amenities of the fishing village and colourful seaside resort of Seahouses. Converted and refurbished to extremely high standards throughout, the properties here are grouped around a central courtyard only yards away from a fine indoor heated swimming pool and sauna (at extra cost and payable direct to the owner). Available until the 1st Novemeber, the pool has a constant depth of 4ft 6in and features a south-facing glass sun living room to one side.
Within easy walking distance, the bustling harbour boasts a fleet of brightly painted fishing cobbles and a few larger boats, and the town itself provides a good range of facilities, including golf, sailing and horse riding. There are calm weather boat trips to the offshore Farne Islands, a wildlife sanctuary for puffins, oyster-catchers, kittywakes, guillemots and grey seals. The 28 islands form a nature reserve owned by the National Trust and, though half of them are submerged at high tide, landing is allowed daily in summer on the largest, Farne Island – where there is a nature trail, lighthouse and 14th-century chapel.
At Beadnell, 2 miles to the south, the dune-backed sands of Beadnell Bay provide ideal conditions for water sports. Formerly an important fishing village and smugglers’ haunt, Beadnell now enjoys a reputation as a centre for sailing and has the unique distinction of being the only East Coast port with a west-facing harbour. The sandy beach running the length of the bay is safe for swimming and is overlooked by 18th-century lime kilns. In the village stands a three-storey, 16th-century peel tower, which now forms part of an inn. Five minutes’ drive to the north of Farne House Holiday Homes stands the mighty fortress of Bamburgh Castle, easily visible across the wide stretch of sand from Seahouses.
Just a few miles further on is yet more historical, natural and scenic interest at Holy Island. Here, the fairytale Lindisfarne Castle was first a 16th-century fort, then a ruin which was redesigned by Edwin Lutyens in 1902 and is now owned by the National Trust.
Inland is a country of massive hills and moors, fast rivers and great forests. Between the Cheviots and the sea, there is easy touring through fields of corn and pastures dotted with solid stone hamlets and lined by dry-stone walls which patchwork the countryside. Shops 500 yards.

    We phoned to say we would be arriving at 5pm and were told we would receive a e-mail with details of booking in, but this did not arrive. On arrival no one was to be seen after waiting an hour we went round and tried the front door to find it was open with the keys inside. Inside we found no information giving instructions on Keys, Heating, or a contact number. All heaters were full on and the temperature was 34 deg. As windows only opened 2 inches the apartment remained extremely hot overnight making it difficult to sleep. No hot water in any bathroom or kitchen taps, luckily there was an electric shower in the upstairs bathroom. Lightbulbs not working or missing in main bedroom. The Aparment was above the swimming pool and the noise of screaming children was horrendous. During our 4 day stay nobody was seen to tell about some of these problems. This was a pity because the apartment itself was OK and in a brilliant position with lovely views from main rooms.

    When we last visited in October 2018, the swimming pool showers were not working and the apartment needed a refurbishment, loose wallpaper and in need of tidying. Thinking it was the end of the season, we made a last minute booking and returned in February 2019. When we walked in, all the windows were covered in flies buzzing around. A large tin of flyspray was needed to get rid of them. The apartment was still in the same state and nothing had changed. The wooden front windows allowed the wind in and the bay window area was draughty. The reported fault in the swimming pool area was still not repaired. To pay extra per night to the owners for electricity for outside lighting and swimming pool is a bit of an affront, as the rear car park was very badly lit and the swimming pool only lukewarm. The complex is advertised for sale, so if a new owner took over and spent some money on a refurbishment, we may return.

    The cottage's decor is very dated and needs an upgrade. We didn't like the hostile notices stuck up all over the place telling us not to do this and not to do that! Of all the cottages we've stayed in over the years, this is the first one where there wasn't a welcome pack, not even a small bottle of milk or a few tea bags was available on arrival. When we've stayed in Cornwall/Devon scones, jam, cream and a bottle of wine/cider was provided along with tea/coffee, milk so the customer relations for this cottage needs some work! We were also unsure what the extra money we had to leave on the table was for as we didn't use the pool and you would expect the lighting in the car park to be included. We were also absolutely astonished that there was no WiFi as it hadn't occurred to us that there wouldn't be! The only good thing was the view from the lounge over the harbour and the cottage's close location to the village.
