This is a great 3km loop walk that takes you past Seahouses Harbour and the golf course, onto the beach and back up to the village via the little river next to the golf course.
Head left as you leave the cottage and walk down North Street. Look out for the entertaining sign on the gable end of 6 North Street on the way! Continue down this road past the benches overlooking the harbour (you’ll get a great view of Seahouses Harbour and Bamburgh Castle in the distance to your left). Follow the road around to the right and then join the pathway that takes you along the coast past the caravan park. You’ll see the Powder House on the rocks to your left, where explosives were stored during the construction of the harbour back in the 1880s. Continue along this path across the golf course – keep dogs on leads at this point and beware of flying golf balls!
The path will bring you out onto the beach, with views to Beadnell in the distance. For a slightly shorter walk, you can cut up the path where the large concrete blocks are and across the golf course back to the main road. Alternatively, head a little further along the beach and join the path that follows the river up the main road. The river tends to choose it’s own course across the beach to the sand, but is usually crossable by paddling, jumping or using the stepping stones!
Once you’re back on the main road, just head right and you’ll soon be back in Seahouses and back to Old Salt Cottage.
Great for dogs because they can get a good run on the beach. Best to keep them on the lead and off the greens when crossing the golf course though.
Great for kids because it’s a relatively short walk with lots to explore. They’ll enjoy the mix of harbour, golf course, beach and river, and they can also investigate some excellent rock pools as you descend from the golf course onto the sandy beach.
