This wonderful cottage is part of Seaton Hall, an ancient manor house with over a thousand years of recorded history. For an authentic stay in somewhere truly unique, this is a perfect choice, immerse yourself in a holiday like no other.

Offering 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, this large property is perfect for a family gathering or special occasion. Entering Seaton Mote there is an open plan kitchen/dining room, where you can start each day with a hearty home-cooked breakfast, whilst planning the activities for the day ahead. The separate living room has plenty of comfy seating around the TV, for cosy movie nights in. The living spaces are snug making this property more suitable for groups of 8, although with the 5 bedrooms, 10 guests are welcome. There are three bedrooms on the first floor, and two on the ground floor.Seaton Hall has a fascinating past, the hall was named after the De Seton dynasty who resided from 1130 to 1307, and whose family made allegiances with and marriages to the Scottish Royal family. Passed down through generations, before slipping into disrepair. The present owner purchased the estate in 2002.
