Rocket House is a charming cottage in a traditional seaside setting, where the unspoiled scenery is matched by the gentle pace of life. Picnics on the sand, paddling in the surf, days at the good old English seaside are back in trend.

After your day of exploring, come back to this wonderful, cosy, converted boat house and curl up next to the log burning stove and listen to sound of the crackling logs. Walking, talking, sailing, snoozing; living here means taking time to live well.
Rocket House is a characterful 494 sq ft quirky cottage on top of the hill, located in the much sought after village of Low Newton. This cottage has been transformed from its historical use as the Coastguard Rocket store and boat house into this wonderful holiday home. The owners have done everything with love, care and attention to detail. The cottage has been crafted throughout in pitch pine in order to compliment the original beams and stone walls. The stunning views overlooking the lush green meadows, sandy bay, sparkling blue sea and the ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle make this spot truly special and somewhat magical.
