The lively working port of Seahouses lies right in the heart of the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Its most picturesque attraction is the harbour, where colourful lobster and crab fishing boats bob around when they're not out at sea. There's an authenticity about Seahouses that you just won't find in many coastal towns, one that hasn't been spoilt by gawdy amusement parks and seaside funfairs. Instead, you'll find its Main Street filled with traditional pubs, small seafood restaurants and independent shops housed in century-old stone and slate properties. Most visitors who come to stay in Seahouses bed and breakfasts use them as a jumping-off point for exploring the magnificent coastline, whether it's playing golf on the rolling fairway outside town, whiling away a sunny afternoon on the nearby beach or walking along the coastal footpaths.
Hotels would just seem out of place in this ancient little coastal town and the bed and breakfasts in Seahouses have long been the accommodation of choice. It doesn't matter whether you're coming for a fishing weekend, a romantic getaway with your loved one or bringing the whole family on a nostalgia-inducing seaside break, you'll always find a B&B that will fit the bill. If you're sold on a holiday in Seahouses, you can always find your perfect accommodation on Expedia, which lists every property, along with detailed listings and photos to help you make the right choice. All you need to do is plug in your dates, location and price, and Expedia will do the hard work for you. Seahouses bed and breakfasts are as diverse as the people who run them. Some are housed in centuries-old renovated chapels, others in ancient farmhouses just a stone's throw from the beach. If you want to be close to the restaurants and pubs, you could opt for one of the traditional family-run B&Bs in the centre of town. Alternatively, score one of the homely guesthouses next to the harbour and wake up to the sight of the fishing boats making their way out to sea. Whatever you choose, you're always guaranteed a comfortable stay when you book a night through Expedia.
After you've checked in, you'll find that most guestrooms come equipped with all the conveniences that you might expect, like a TV mounted on the wall, a comfortable double bed wrapped in freshly pressed sheets and a kettle for making tea and coffee. Some have seaside-inspired art on the walls, others simply have views looking out over the ocean and beyond. All but the most budget Seahouses bed and breakfasts have ensuite bathrooms, some with separate shower units and tubs. If you can't escape catching up on your work emails while you're away or need to do some planning for your weekend break, you could link up to the complimentary WiFi – some places even have in-room desks and comfortable chairs. When you wake up to the sound of waves lapping onto the coast, you can head downstairs for breakfast, with options that typically include full English fry-ups or lighter plates with pastries and fruit. If you're not after a seaside break, why not head across to Manchester to spend a weekend exploring the museums and art galleries in the capital of the North?
A good introduction to Seahouses is a walk along the buzzy harbourfront, where you can catch a glimpse of the fishing boats and grab a cup of tea in one of the quaint cafes. Seahouses is the gateway to the Farne Islands, an archipelago with more than 150,000 breeding birds. If you score tickets for one of the daily boat excursions, you could watch terns dive-bombing to catch fish and get up close to one of the largest colonies of grey seals in the country. Alternatively, you could don your scuba gear to explore below the chilly waters and discover a whole host of marine life among the sunken shipwrecks. If you're bringing the kids, there are plenty of attractions for young ones, like the nearby crazy golf course, or you could simply grab a net and go rock-pooling. Those who are feeling active can lace up their boots to go hiking along the coastal trails or hire a bike for exciting downhill adventures. At the end of the day, you can sup on a pint of Farne Island ale or a chilled glass or wine while you look out across the magnificent coastal views.
