Seahouses is an historic village on the North Northumberland coast. It lies in an area famous for its natural beauty, unspoilt countryside and wide, open beaches. The village surrounds an attractive 18th. century harbour which supports a small fishing industry and a vibrant leisure trade. The latter includes boat trips to the Farne Islands wildlife sanctuary, fishing and diving. There is also a thriving and popular golf club.

This coastal area contains some of the most important natural and historic landscapes in Britain. Flocks of waders and migrating wildfowl use mudflats and estuaries as refuelling stations and winter quarters. Seabirds including Puffins, Shags, Guillemots, Razorbills and Terns nest on the offshore islands and rocky headlands in the summer months. There is a large colony of Grey Seals on the Farne Islands.

The Holy Island of Lindisfarne is close by and can be reached either by car via the tidal causeway or by boat from Seahouses depending on tides. If you feel adventurous you could walk across the mudflats on the pilgrim’s way at low tide.

This is superb walking and cycling country with a good number of public footpaths and bridleways. The North Northumberland Coastal Path passes through Seahouses. Horse riding is also available from the stables in North Sunderland both for novice and experienced riders.

Seahouses has good places to eat offering a wide variety of meals all within easy walking distance.

There are so many interesting places to visit in the area that we cannot list them all but here are a few of our favourites.
