known collectively as Croft House Cottages

Situated one mile from the heart of the popular fishing village of SEAHOUSES central to explore the Heritage Coastline. Fifteen minutes walk to shops, pubs and restaurants and only one mile to the beach or harbour; just three miles from Bamburgh and ten miles from Alnwick, all situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Croft House and adjoining buildings constituted what was once, in centuries past, the 'Manor House' of the area. Other than the church, which is the most immediate neighbour, Croft House is the oldest property in the locale - its history dating back to the early 17th century. The following centuries have seen the property used as, amongst others, The Bluebell Inn, auction house, abattoir, butcher's shop and private residence. This former Manor House is comprised of three individual stone-built cottages, all adjoined within a courtyard setting with parking and enclosed gardens to the rear, the whole renovated to a high standard. In its original form, the cottages date back to the 1600's and retain many original features. Exposed stonework, beamed ceilings and wooden floors are featured.
