The Olde School House is situated in the old part of Seahouses but only 10 minutes’ walk to the heart of the village or to our beautiful beaches.

Sea & Seahouses

The harbour is the hub of the village with some fantastic views towards Holy Island, Bamburgh Castle and of course the Farne Islands.

Enjoy a seat on the harbour hill while you watch the boats coming and going and where you will see the local fisherman landing their catch of crabs and lobsters or why not try and catch a crab yourself as the harbour is full of them.

If you have time then every Tuesday or Thursday evening around 5.30pm the lifeboat goes out on its weekly practice. Watch as they bring the boat along the pier and launch it down the slipway. Fascinating how they do it.

Buy some local fish from Swallows Fish and if you’re brave enough try their famous smoked kippers.

In Seahouses why not try your hand a crazy golf which is really good fun of if you want to try the real thing then Seahouses Golf Course is really challenging for a links course.

Beaches & Bamburgh

If you decide the beach is the thing for you then we have some off the best beaches, with their golden sands that stretch for miles and miles. Just north from the Olde School House is a short cut to the beach where you can either walk to Bamburgh passing Monks House which is very close to the beach, build sandcastles or just enjoy the view.

If your legs will take you, you can go even further past Bamburgh Castle towards Stag Rock and around to Budle Bay which has some interesting wildlife.


Beadnell & Beyond

South of Seahouses is the village of Beadnell which also has beautiful beaches. The harbour has old Lime Kilns and is the only west facing harbor on the east coast of Northumberland.

If you are adventurous enough you will see Dunstanburgh Castle in the distance which is a ruin now but just as wonderful to visit.
