Great location

Posted Aug 28, 2014
Pros: Location. Breakfast.
Location: 5 minutes walk into town and we did Spice House one night, Neptunes Fish and Chips another, and Bamburgh Castle pub the next. Lots of variety.
Great position in Seahouses overlooking the beach and Farne Islands. 5 minutes walk into the town for all the pubs/restaurants etc. Lovely room. Great breakfast. Judy really looked after us.

We stayed for two nights and Judy's hospitality greeted us from the moment we arrived. Her breakfasts are amazing and nothing was too much trouble, we recommend the high summer jam.

Lovely stay

Posted Apr 29, 2014
Pros: Everything
Cons: Nothing
Location: Well situated, 5 minutes walk away from Seahouses, the beach is over the road outside the hotel.
We stayed at Gun Rock for the Easter break, 19th to 21st April. It's a B&B rather than a hotel, but fully deserves its 4 star rating. The room was spacious and very clean, as was the en suite with a full sized bath with shower over, with complimentary toiletries, and plentiful fluffy clean towels. The king size bed was very comfortable and cozy, as the nights were chilly despite the lovely weather we enjoyed during the day. The breakfasts were cooked to order, with a very good choice of fresh fruit, cereal, full English or fish, and toast and tea/coffee supplied as often as you wished. The owner Judy is very helpful with local recommendations for eating, and will book premises for you. All guests can visit the nearby ocean club for swimming and Sauna, etc., at a reduced price with a pass which Judy can supply. Guests also enjoy 10% reduction on Billy Sheils@ boat trips to the nearby Farne Islands. We had a great stay, and I wouldn't hesitate to visit again.

A great B&B with a brilliant sea view.

Posted Feb 24, 2014
Pros: Friendliness, cleanliness, comfort, good food, location.
Location: Close to a beautiful beach, the Farne Islands, Bamburgh Castle, Holy Island and Dunstanburgh Castle.
We have just got back from a wonderful break in Northumberland, staying at Gun Rock. Having read many good reviews I booked 3 nights at Gun Rock and was so glad I had. The B&B has a fantastic position in Seahouses. So close to the beach with a brilliant view of the Farne Islands and Bamburgh Castle. After a warm welcome we were shown our room which we were delighted with as it had an amazing sea view. The room was clean and comfortable with a very nice en-suite. Judy was extremely helpful and informative. On our request, she booked us onto a boat trip to the Farne Islands to see the seals. Most enjoyable and we learnt a lot about their history. Judy provides a great variety of options for breakfast and she was happy to cater for individual tastes. We would recommend Gun Rock to anyone wanting to visit this area. We'll definitely be staying here again on our next trip to Northumberland.

Great Location

Posted Nov 21, 2013 on Hotels.com
The Guest house is in a great location with sea views and access to miles of pristine beach.The village is only a 5 minute stroll away with a good selection of pubs and restaurants. The rooms are compact but comfortable and well furnished. The landlady is very knowledgeable and helpful and will make reservations for tables and boat trips. The breakfast is very comprehensive and excellent quality, especially the fruit.

What a hidden gem!!

Posted Nov 13, 2013 on Hotels.com
We were made welcome from the moment we arrived. Lovely clean rooms with the most stunning views, we almost didn't need to go out. Breakfast was first class, including the local kippers. I would recommend Gun Rock to anyone visiting the area.
