Extra Amenities

Rodney is a deceptively spacious cottage absolutely bursting with character and period features. Fully renovated in 2020 to a very high standard, natural traditional materials have been used throughout whilst updating the cottage for comfortable modern living. The property is situated opposite St Paul’s Church in the old village centre of North Sunderland, part of Seahouses, and only a mile from Seahouses North Beach.
The cottage is set back from the road behind what was originally the village Post office and enjoys a very quiet and secluded location, yet the bustling harbour, shops and seafront are just 10 minutes walk away through the village. This unique cottage features exposed stone walls and exposed beams in every room, even in the newly fitted bathroom and en-suite! The exposed wooden lintels are derived from ship’s timbers and the original 200 year old wood floors upstairs have been restored and sanded. Downstairs the floors are impressive limestone flags throughout with underfloor heating powered by an air source heat pump. The industrial style lighting is mounted in exposed steel conduit with Edison style light bulbs.

The fully equipped kitchen and dining area were originally a granary so is particularly spacious with high beamed ceilings, a wide range of newly installed high gloss kitchen units and granite worktops. There is an electric log-effect stove in the living area. The sitting room has an exposed stone fireplace with a wood burner and an open feature staircase.
Upstairs there is a cosy seating/desk/reading area on the galleried landing and two generously sized bedrooms both with king size beds. One bedroom has an en-suite whilst the second bedroom has a large separate bathroom, accessed by 5 steps, with a pentagon shower and an original cast iron bath with claw feet. All upstairs rooms have exposed stone walls and original beams. The bedding is crisp white Egyptian cotton from The White Company with new Sleepeezee pocket sprung mattresses. The accommodation is immaculately presented with an eclectic mix of both old and new furniture selected to suit the character of the property.
This luxury property accepts adults only and is ideal for one or two couples seeking superior accommodation. The amenities available within Seahouses include tearooms, restaurants, pubs and shops.

Boat trips to the Farne Islands run from the nearby harbour, the islands are famous for their nesting seabirds and grey seal colonies. Horse riding, a links golf course, kayak and surfboard hire, windsurfing, mountain and road cycling are all available nearby as well as coast and country walks in this outdoor playground. Rodney is perfectly located to explore the Heritage coastline designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural beauty. The picture postcard village of Bamburgh, protected by its dramatic fortress, is a lovely walk from Seahouses along the top of St Aidan’s dunes and onto wide expanses of golden, and often empty, sandy beaches. Just beyond Bamburgh is Budle Bay, where at low tide a vast expanse of mud flats is the home to thousands of sea and land birds making this bird sanctuary a haven for bird watchers. The market town of Alnwick, with its own castle offers many facilities a few miles inland. Alnwick Garden is a popular visitor attraction with its grand cascade waterfall and restaurant within the largest tree house in Europe! Beach 1 mile. Shop, pub and resturant ½ mile
