Gun rock is faultless. It's position is exceptional, sitting on the balcony in the evening overlooking the farne islands with a bottle of wine takes some beating. Judy is the perfect host.

It has taken me a while to get round to writing this review, we visited in summer 2016 and we had a wonderful time. Judy is the most fabulous hostess, and her breakfasts are to die for! She knows the area so well, always recommending the best places to visit or the best boat trips to take. Her B&B is...

Warm, comforable and great views. We enjoyed our stay and the lady of the house is very welcoming and helpful. If you want a boat trip, ask her she knows the best one. Lovely room and view, enjoyed the facilities and nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommended

We stayed for 2 nights at Judy's bed and breakfast after reading previous reviews and were not disappointed. Judy's breakfasts were scrumptious, local kippers and smoked haddock were truly delicious. We stayed in the Farne room overlooking the islands with fantastic views of Barnburgh and the harbour, a delight to wake up to! The room was exceptionally clean with a...

Excellent location just a 10 minute walk into Seahouses. Also well situated for visiting the Northumberland Coast in general. Great sea views from all rooms. Freshly cooked breakfast. Judy, the owner, is personable, knowledgeable and welcoming.

I stayed for a week at Gun Rock with my daughter and wanted to add to the other reviews, both the views and the B & B are fantastic, the breakfasts too, cooked to order and lovely hot plates! Judy had plenty of tips, whether it is places to visit or eat and the boat trips to see the birds....
