Seahouses Hostel is ideally suited to accommodate groups of all sizes, up to 42 guests in a mix of dormitories and en-suite rooms. The recent extensive renovations and new build was completed in early 2017 and has resulted in a spacious, bright, comfortable and relaxing environment with extensive facilities including: Two comfortable living rooms, a large dining room, laundry and drying room,and a fully equipped kitchen. Ample shower and toilet facilities and central heating throughout. Free wifi and a range of activities including games, toys and books for younger guests, as well as outdoor games equipment, BBQ and a play area to enjoy in their lovely, spacious and enclosed garden. North Northumberland has a coastal region that is second to none for natural beauty and places of historic interest. The hostel is a very short walk from the pretty coastal fishing village of Seahouses and a visit to the beautiful Farne Islands is only a boat ride away from Seahouses harbour, where you can see the large grey seal colony and bird sanctuary. Alternatively, you can walk a little further along the glorious sandy beaches and visit the historic Bamburgh Castle or the Grace Darling Museum not forgetting to visit the rock pools on your way. There is always time for an ice cream, but make sure you leave room for fish and chips by the harbour. After such a busy day you will be eager to return to the comfort of the hostel. Tomorrow, maybe a trip to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne - make sure you check the tide times!

News & Offers from Seahouses Hostel

Seahouses, idyllic, calm and certainly retreat worthy

October 8th 2020

Seahouses Hostel wonderfully located in a rather special part Northumberland. Right by the sea, teeming with natural beauty and historic landmarks.

Spotting the colony of grey seals may lead you to wonder if you’re still in England at all. The puffins of the nearby Farne islands may conjure thoughts of being much further afield. One thing you can be certain of at Seahouses Hostel is a friendly atmosphere perfect to help unwind. Seahouses Hostel is perfect for retreats offering spacious and flexible accommodation including a small lounge ideal for quiet time or reflection, a large lounge giving group members an opportunity to come together and also access to the Hall for further activities – all within a quiet and very peaceful location. We are located just a short drive away from the holy island of Lindisfarne, a must for all those wishing to experience the rich natural beauty and the fascinating Christian heritage the island has to offer.

Seahouses Hostel will remain closed for the summer

July 9th 2020

Unfortunately in light of current events Seahouses Hostel will be closed for the foreseeable future. Thank you everyone for the support

It is with great sadness that we have decided to remain closed for the summer. As a small charity, it is very hard to see how we might move forward with the current restrictions in place and so, disappointingly, we are not in a position to accept bookings at this time. We have not made this decision lightly and thank you all for your understanding and ongoing support; we very much look forward to welcoming guests once again in the not too distant in the future!

Northumberland is crowned Seaside Staycation of the Year!

November 29th 2019

With miles of unspoilt beaches; ancient castles galore; picturesque gardens and rolling hills; historic market towns; fantastic local food and a cultural heritage all its own; it’s really not surprising that this beautiful county took the top spot!

BBC’s Matt Baker, who hails from County Durham and hosted the event, said the beaches are “…incredible, the best as far as I’m concerned” – and we couldn’t agree more!
