Take a boat trip

If you’re staying at one of our properties in Seahouses or the surrounding area, we highly recommend taking a boat trip to The Farne Islands. Every autumn, the island sees over 1000 seal pups born, and is currently home to the second largest colony of grey seals in the country – so there’s plenty to see on a trip!
