Fab time in Seahouses & surrounding area. Loved the long beach walks – rain or shine.

Boat trip to Farne Island – superb. Clamshell is a perfect base. Poor Geoff was pulled up several times for keeping us talking out in the rain! – We enjoyed it Pat.

Thanks again….

(Lovely – We may frame this )

 

If your holiday needs are walking or rest

Come to Seahouses it’s one of the best

Farne Islands just a boat trip away

Or Lindisfarne makes an interesting day

Give Geoff & Pat Stewart a ring at Craster Sq

Powderhouse or Clamshell Cottages you couldn’t ask for ‘mair’

They are helpful and kind in every way

Which goes to make a perfect holiday

Our second stay in Clamshell and just as perfect as it was 2 years ago. The children are bigger now – they just loved the place- obviously the garden “playground” was best but the whole cottage was declared “our home”. Add puffins & a little bit of adventure (a boat ride through a thunderstorm) & you get memories that will be remembered for a long time
