Childrens activities/places to go in Seahouses

We are hoping to spend a week in Seahouses at the end of May. Can you advise any places to go and trips which the kids will enjoy - we have an 8yr old boy and 18month baby girl. Also any nice places to eat?

Thanks in advance!

Seahouses is a good base for things to do for the kids. Other than the nearby beaches there are the amusements and crazy golf and soft play at The Bunker http://www.thebunker-seahouses.co.uk/

There are also trips to the Farne Islands, which is highly recommended yournorthumberland.co.uk/area-guides/farne-i…

Here's a guide to Seahouses yournorthumberland.co.uk/area-guides/seahous… and places to eat yournorthumberland.co.uk/area-guides/seahous… My favourites are The Bamburgh Castle Inn (great views of the harbour from the restaurant) and the best fish and chips in town are from the wonderful Pinnacles.

Bamburgh Castle is just up the road and other nearby places worth visiting are Alnwick Castle and The Alnwick Garden with the world's largest treehouse and a poison garden!

You'll have a great time.

I agree with the above. Also worth visiting are Dunstanburgh castle (NT and English Heritage) (walk from craster, you should be able to push a 3 wheel buggy but a backpack would be best. Beadnell bay (2 miles away) is a fantastic beach with dunes and a tiny harbour (and ice cream van in car park and loos). Our children also loved the story of Grace Darling - museum on Bar=mburgh and the beach below Bamburgh Castle is stunning (rock pools to the north). For a less sunny day Cragside is about 40 mins drive and has various adventure playgrounds and a huge labrynth which is fun. Prices are steep if you are not a NT member though. There is a small indoor pool in Seahouses and I think non members can swim but a larger pool (still not huge) can be found in Alnwick. For wet days you can hire a badminton court at the sports centre in Alnwick too and visit Barter Books if only to see the train set.

What about Pot a doodle Do, just of the A1 at Scremerston. Countryside setting, they can make their own cups and plates, then you can collect them a few days later after they have been glazed.

Also Ford and Etral with a narrow guage railway at Heatherslaw.

Hiya- yeah, thanks. We're back now but those places you mentioned we did discover! We also ventured to Alnwick Castle, Bamburgh beach. Boat trip to Farne islands and drove to Holy Island. Our meal at 'Black Swan was fab! Would def recommend families to visit Seahouses.
