TO NOTE

The Beach Pad is more suitable for older children who will enjoy walking to all the facilities Seahouses has to offer. Young children are welcome but there is limited outdoor space.

Guests should note that this is a ground floor apartment, directly below another Coastal Retreat, Salt Air, and there may occasionally be the noise of footsteps from above, over which we have no control.

The Beach Pad faces the main road in Seahouses but has nothing but sea beyond that. Plantation shutters on the lounge and master bedroom windows provide the necessary privacy.

Mobile reception is quite poor in Seahouses but you are welcome to use the landline.

Whilst we take great care to represent our properties and their facilities as accurately as possible, the décor, furnishings and facilities shown in images and video tours may occasionally be subject to minor change.

Reviews

Superb all round! Location, views and interior all more than we could have hoped for.

Past Customer,

We had such a lovely holiday. The apartment was superbly equipped, very modern, clean, fresh and just what we expected of Coastal Retreats. We loved the interior design and some of the quirky pieces of furniture. I am going home to decorate my house and use some of your ideas.

Past Customer,

Sea views, walking distance to the pubs, fish and chip shops, boats to the Farne Islands. Love Seahouses. Was a bit reticent to book something in the village as thought it would be noisy. On the contrary, we felt The Beach Pad was a little oasis of calm and a lovely place to return to in the evenings. We hardly used the car and walked up to Bamburgh twice along the beach and even walked the full length of beach from Seahouses along to Beadnell and then onto Newton by the Sea. A really great holiday.

Past Customer,

Location

Built on the site of the former Seafield seafood restaurant and just set back from the Seahouses to Bamburgh road, The Beach Pad sits slightly apart from the commercial hub of Seahouses, but just a minute away on foot from the shops, restaurants and harbour. Park your car in the gated parking area for your stay as you can easily walk to the beach, the Farne Island boat stop and the private Ocean Leisure Club to which you have membership, as our guest, for the duration of your holiday (small entrance fee applies).

The Beach Pad is on the ground floor of this building with another Coastal Retreat, Salt Air, on the first floor above it, so can be booked together for those wanting to holiday under the same roof but with their own front door.

For further information on the area, see our Seahouses section.
