Description:Fishing resort / small town in Northumberland, England.
Newest Review: ... newsagent, bakery, petrol garage, pet shop etc. There are also a number of souvenir type shops, such as The National Trust Shop. All of these shops are quite basic but they are fine for everyday things. If you want something a bit more special or want more variety then Alnwick is about 30 minutes away (by car) and has a pretty good selection of shops for a market town. For people with ... more

***Where is it?*** Seahouses is "up north" - a long way up north!! Its on the North East coast, about 50 miles north of Newcastle, 60 miles south of the Scottish border, and about 15 miles from the Alnwick. I don't know about getting there from other directions, but if you're coming from the south (and I assume most people would be!) it is a fairly easy drive with the majority of the driving being down on motorway or dual carriageway. However, when you get to within 5 miles of Seahouses and have to turn off the dual carriageway, the roads are very windy and the locals drive pretty fast. ***Practicalities*** When you get to Seahouses, the ...

Seahouses is a small town on the North East coast approx 15 miles north of Alnwick. We live about an hour and a half away so it's a nice distance for a day out by the sea. The drive up to Seahouses is a particularly nice one on a sunny day. We tend to get off the main road as soon as possible as the scenery around the back roads is very nice. The roads are quite windy, so it pays to be careful, particularly if you've never driven down them before. Some of the locals who are used to the roads are speed demons though! To get to Seahouses, first you have to go through Beadnell, a tiny village which consists of a few houses, two pubs and a shop! It's a ... Read the complete review

At first sight, Seahouses has none of the charm of the more traditional seaside resort - it is not pretty, it is not quaint, it has no tumbledown fishermens cottages. As you drive into the village, the square concrete 1960s architecture hits you like a slap in the face - all you notice is the tattoo parlour and the five big and brassy fish and chip shops. But Seahouses has much more to offer - it is a real working village, not just a pretty tourist enclave; the place just grows on you and you quickly find that it has a charm all of its own. ~~The Farne Islands~~ Perhaps the most interesting thing about Seahouses is its location, just opposite the ...

Seahouses is a small fishing town located on the coast of Northumberland, about an hours drive north of Newcastle. We have spent a week each year, in or around the area surrounding the town of Seahouses, for the past ten years or so; so let me tell you why. ~~ The Harbour ~~ The harbour area, also know as North Sunderland harour is a busy little affair, busling with fishing boats and pleasure boats alike. There is access for cars right along the harbour's edge for pay and display. Along the top are guest houses and self catering flats which offer some of the most breathtaking panoramic views from Bamburgh castle through to the Farne Islands. Just ... Read the complete review

As the children are on school holidays we decide to visit Seahouses, its a place that i have been to many times as a child and have always had fond memories of the place. Seahouses is a town in the northeast of england, just past Alnwick in Northumberland, the town itself it based around the fishing centre and the pier, its quite small and you can easily walk around it. We live about an hour away so its a nice day or half day trip, if you live further away it is a lovely place to come for a weekend. Where to stay- There is the main hotel called the bambrough hotel and it sits right above the harbour at Seahouses, its a very ... Read the complete review
