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!
