A brazing three mile walk from Bamburgh is the long expanse of Seahouses beach. This beach is often deserted even on sunny days so it's great if you prefer to escape the hustle and bustle of the more popular seaside resorts.

Some of the best rock pooling can be found to the south of Seahouses close to Beadnell.

If you fancy exploring the beach on horseback Slate Hall Riding Centre provide treks along the sea front. Or you could try your hand at surfing or snorkeling with equipment hire available in the town.

Seahouses its self is a great place to explore with an interesting harbour and views of the rolling Cheviot Hills on the distant horizon. The harbour is a bustling place with fishing boats, diving boats and pleasure craft taking tourist to the Farne Islands. There are also excellent fish and chip shops selling freshly caught fish, whilst the delicious ice cream vans will keep the children happy!

You can't visit Seahouses without taking a trip on one of the special chartered boats out to the Farne Islands where the famous breeding sea birds and Grey Seal colonies can be spotted. There are also occasional guided walks around the Inner Farne which can be explored via a circular boardwalk trail.
