Description

Just a hop skip and a jump - well a few paces anyway - and you'll be dashing through the dunes and onto the huge expanse of beach that runs from Seahouses to Bamburgh. The house itself also has uninterrupted views of the open countryside to the Castle and back at home outside is a stunning garden, with mini gardens to do in what you want - have a barbecue at the main table, pop through the clematis-clad arch to the enclosed grassed area to play with the kids or the dog, or visit the quiet area and read a book or sip champagne....the choice is yours.
Inside you'll find that Sunshine is beautifully and practically furnished and owner Clare has put oodles of thought into what you might need during your seaside break. So they've catered for just about everyone - walkers, golfers, birdwatchers, divers, the seasoned holiday maker, groups of friends or family coming together. There's a fantastic library with books on just about anything, plus the well-thumbed paperback for an easy read; there are games for the kids and a few for the adults too - toys and games in the huge garage. If you are into cooking you can conjure up a quick sandwich for the beach or gourmet meal, and barbie for even more.
The accommodation itself sleeps up to 11 guests in 2 twin rooms, 3 double rooms, (one is on the ground floor) and a single z bed which can be put up in most of the rooms.
The main family bathroom has a bath and a separate shower, and downstairs there is a separate cloakroom. The lounge is large but still cosily furnished with a log burning stove ideal for autumn and winter breaks, and large sofas where all the crowd can congregate after a day out. There's also a quiet area at the library end of the room, and the TV has a freeview package and DVD player. Unlimited superfast Wi-fi is available.
So all in all we think you'll find everything you need at Sunshine House including parking for up to 4 cars, secure storage and drying area for outdoor gear or dive equipment, Wi-fi and we even welcome well behaved dogs.
