Local area photos

  • The coastline of North Northumberland is well known for its sandy beaches and superb scenery along with its picturesque villages overlooked by magnificent castles.
  • The historic coastal fishing village of Seahouses lies just a few miles east of the main A1 that links Edinburgh with Newcastle-upon-Tyne, but despite this, it remains off the beaten track and as a result has not been spoiled by over-development.
  • Just off this stretch of coastline, lie the Farne Islands. Well known by SCUBA divers and naturalists alike, these islands are host to a diverse cross section of marine life and coastal species. Boat trips to the Farnes can be arranged from Seahouses Harbour
  • There are interesting market towns in the region. Alnwick with its majestic castle, famous gardens and weekly market is only 12 miles away. Morpeth and Berwick both a scenic 25 mile drive.
  • A visit to the region would not be complete without a visit to Holy Island. (Tide times can be checked at Seahouses Visitor Centre in the car Park).
  • Young or old, walker, bird-watcher, golfer or sandcastle builder the area has something for everyone.
