Other Notes

The shower room is on the ground floor with the small bathroom upstairs. This is in the eaves so taller guests should be careful. The large shared garden is exclusively for Seasalt and neighbouring Nook End and Driftwood, also part of the Coastal Retreats collection. This is located across the service drive from the cottages, so not ideal for unsupervised toddlers as vehicles do use the road. Seasalt is only 50m or so from the road to Beadnell, which is not exceptionally busy but young children should be watched.
