Looking for a lively base from which to tour
Northumberland's stunning Heritage Coast? Then consider a
Seahouses holiday cottage in this popular seaside town.
Seahouses promises an unforgettable wildlife watching experience
and is the stepping stone to the Farne Islands - home to incredibly
large numbers of seabirds, including puffins, guillemots, eiders,
shags and terns. Mid-April to late July is the official breeding
season. Once the birds flee, the islands transform into a huge
colony for grey seals - view the pups from late October to
mid-December. Several companies operate day trips from the harbour,
a couple of which are licensed to land (at restricted times of
year). Spare a moment to gaze back at the mainland for a fantastic
view of Bamburgh Castle, an iconic landmark for miles around.
Back in Seahouses, potter around the colourful harbour and watch
local fishermen land their catch-of-the-day. The town has an
excellent reputation as a centre for fishing, as well as sailing
and diving. Explore the bustling main street and sample cuisine in
a number of restaurants from international to traditional and, of
course, sensational fish and chips. There's also a good choice
Don your boots and follow the coastal path north to Bamburgh and
visit its splendid castle. Discover spectacular beaches and
windswept sand dunes all around - perfect for walks with your dog
or rock pooling with the family. Visit the local riding centre and
enjoy a countryside hack or gallop along the sands.
Later, unwind at your cosy Seahouses cottage, ready for another
exciting day tomorrow.
