Extra Amenities

The Plaice is situated directly on the harbour of the traditional fishing port of Seahouses and boasts stunning sea views across the working harbour to the Farne Islands beyond. This quintessential fisherman’s cottage has received a total makeover in 2019 to provide tastefully furnished self-catering accommodation whilst offering a unique setting. The accommodation within The Plaice is beautifully presented with much thought, care and attention to the finer details. There are two bedrooms and a family bathroom on the ground floor as well as a utility area. On the first floor there is an open plan living space with doors to an enclosed balcony with a bistro table and chairs to sit and watch the sun rise and enjoy the harbour activity. The master bedroom with en-suite shower facilities is also on the first floor. This beautifully presented bedroom also leads to a private balcony to sit and enjoy the magnificent sea front setting.



Seahouses offers a good selection of facilities within walking distance of The Plaice, including tea rooms, restaurants, pubs and shops. Watch the boats launch to the Farne Islands from the balconies. The Farne Islands are famous for their puffins and grey seal colonies. Horse riding is available on the cusp of the village and there’s an impressive golf course on the links close by. The picturesque village of Bamburgh, protected by its dramatic fortress, is only 2 miles up the coastline where there is a sweeping expanse of golden, and often empty, sandy beaches and from where the tidal island of Lindisfarne, locally known as Holy Island and the birth place of Christianity, can be seen. A further 2 miles north brings you to Waren Mill which is steeped in history.

Once an important port, its harbour has long since disappeared, silted up beneath the sands of the estuary. Budle Bay is a bird sanctuary, and at low tide a vast expanse of mud flats are home to thousands of sea and land birds, making this location a haven for birdwatchers. The market town of Alnwick, with its own castle is a few miles inland and offers many facilities. Barter Books is well worth a visit. Alnwick Garden is also a popular visitor attraction with its grand cascade waterfall and restaurant within the largest tree house in Europe. The Plaice offers an idyllic coastal retreat from which to explore the 20 miles of Heritage coastline designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Beach 100 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 100 yards.
