Northumberland's '˜picturesque seaside town'
Seahouses was named as one of the 17 most picturesque seaside towns in the UK in a recent article in the Metro newspaper.
The feature, which was published in March, avoids ‘sticks of rock, arcade machines and battered fish’ in favour of ‘your own secluded hideaway and a blissful holiday taking in the waves’.
Seahouses is the first in the list which also features the likes of Whitby in North Yorkshire, Ilfracombe in Devon and Padstow in Cornwall.
The entry reads: ‘It’s the view from Seahouses that sets it apart from its neighbours. The village – which is approximately 20km north of Alnwick and included in the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – has a stunning view of both Bamburgh Castle and the Farne Islands.
‘Visit in the early summer to go seal and puffin spotting from the village harbour or enjoy a tasty crab sandwich from The Olde Ship Inn’.
