Meet The Residents

It’s not just the people who are ready to welcome you. The region is home to an eclectic mix of birds and wildlife. 

Between April and July, some 30,000 puffins call the Farne Islands home. Eiders, razorbill, guillemots, shags, kittiwakes and fulmars are also in abundance, while a large colony of grey seals breed there through the autumn and winter months.

Pack your binoculars as harbour porpoises, bottlenose dolphins and minke whale have also been sighted off the coastline. Will you catch a glimpse?

Whatever your interests, Seahouses and the surrounding area caters to the whole family. Known as the ‘Gateway to the Farne Islands’, visitors to Seahouses can take a boat tour to the islands. Well-known for their bird and wildlife population, including a grey seal colony, there are many different boat trips on offer. 

Sail up-close to the cliff face and marvel at the species that nest there, or take a tour to Longstone Island, where you can tour the lighthouse and enjoy a picnic on the sandy beach.

There’s plenty to entertain closer to home too. Spend your day exploring the Seahouses coastline; head north to Bamburgh during low tide or adventure south to nearby Beadnell. For family entertainment, The Bunker offers a fun indoor play area for little ones, as well as a crazy golf course.

Keen golfers won’t be disappointed either. Pay a visit to the nearby Seahouses Golf Club or head up the coast to Bamburgh Castle Golf Club. The club’s Coastal Classic challenge allows you to play three of Northumberland’s finest courses; Alnwick, Bamburgh and Gosforth.

Throw in an array of pubs, restaurants and cafes, and Seahouses is the perfect destination for your next cottage holiday.

There’s more to Seahouses than fish and chips. While the seaside village has naturally perfected the traditional dish, there’s a lot more on the menu at the nearby restaurants, pubs and cafes.

The Bamburgh Castle Hotel and The Olde Ship serve up traditional hearty meals with a side of stunning harbour views.

For something a little spicier, head to The Brasserie or Spice House. Offering Indian and Bangladeshi cuisine, both restaurants offer the option to dine in or takeout. There’s also a Chinese takeaway in Seahouses, providing plenty of options if you want a night off from cooking.

For artisan pizzas, head to Elan Pizzeria or enjoy delicious Italian dishes at Insieme Restaurant, which also offers a takeaway service.

As a large coastal village, there are plenty of local amenities in Seahouses that you can use throughout your stay. Top up on the essentials at the local Co-Op store, or visit the local butchers, bakers and newsagent.

Seahouses was once a busy fishing port, with local fishermen catching salted herring for other nations in Europe. Today, the harbour remains operational, offering boat trips to the Farne Islands while local fishermen catch seafood for restaurants in the village. 

Guests are encouraged to follow the historical trail around the harbour, which will reveal more about the village’s farming and fishing history.

Over on the Farne Islands, the most historic island is Inner Farne, which was home to St Cuthbert for many years, who lived in solitude. Pilgrims from the Kingdom of Northumbria would visit to receive his healing. 

Longstone Island is the former home of local heroine Grace Darling. In 1838, Darling risked her life to rescue survivors of a shipwreck. Visitors can now take a tour to Longstone Lighthouse, where Darling lived.
