5 star reviewSeabank is a big house and roomy. It is well stocked with kitchen wear and appliances as well as wood and coal for the fire. Dogs are welcome which is a bonus and the garden is safe. The furnishings aren't modern but I like that because it has such a homely feel - we've been 3 times now and it feels like going home.
