Season: summer

The village of Seahouses sits between two beaches.  Seahouses North has European designated bathing water, is sandy and lies just above a historic fishing village, with its small harbour, which is the usual spot for boat trips out to the Farne Islands.  Seahouses South, commonly known as Annstead, is where you’ll find abundant rock pools, as the tide falls away.  This beach is backed by dunes, part of a local nature reserve with full public access. Both beaches are well served by the facilities in the village, which also provides parking.
