Tips from a local
Watch the sunset whilst enjoying a divine meal at St. Aidan’s bistro. The bistro is right on the sea front in Seahouses and has huge windows overlooking the North Sea, and the sunsets in the summer are absolutely breathtaking.
You must book in advance at St. Aidan’s, as it’s only open Thursdays, Fridays and Saturday evenings and is popular with locals and tourists alike.
Tips from a local
Take a boat tour out to the Farne Islands with Billy Shiel’s boat trips. This is a must when you come to Northumberland, especially as you are so close to Seahouses. The tours leave from Seahouses harbour and sail all around the Farne Islands. Some stop at the islands where you can get off the boat and have a tour by one of the local rangers, and each boat tour differs depending on the season and what is nesting/breeding around the island. Billy Shiel’s tours are the largest operator in the town, still ran by all the members of the Shiel family who are the most knowledgeable about the area. Make sure you book in advance as they are incredibly popular, especially after being features on Robson Green’s Northumberland!
Tips from a local
Your nearest bar and restaurant is at The Longstone House Hotel, just minutes from Village Farm (just turn right out of the close). This gorgeous bar and restaurant is newly opened and the restaurant serves all fresh local produce including the catch from Seahouses harbour. The restaurant is small so booking in advance is definitely recommended. They are open on Thursday evenings, all day on Friday and Saturday and then for Sunday lunch.
The bar serves a wide range of beers and spirits and is open from 5pm till late on Monday – Thursday, then from Midday to late from Friday – Sunday and you can enjoy a drink in the sunny beer garden.
