Seaton Sluice

Seaton Sluice is a beautiful part of the coastline which has loads to offer visitors to the area. Less than 10 minutes’ drive from Burradon Farm it is a great place to visit during your stay.

The harbour at Seaton Sluice is a great place to explore with its unusual and picturesque headland.  The views are outstanding and there is plenty of parking around the harbour area or the beach car parks.

Head north on the beautiful stretch of family and dog friendly beach from Seaton Sluice all the way to Blyth.   Make sure you try out Ciccarelli’s award winning ice-cream or fish and chips at Blyth.

If you don’t fancy walking on the sand, there’s a path running the length of the beach behind the dunes.  Eve Black Way is a great hard path perfect for pushchairs, wheelchairs, bikes and walkers.

There are children’s play parks at both ends of the beach and of course the obligatory ice cream vans!

Head south on the lovely coastal path towards St Mary’s Island and Whitley Bay.  There are plenty of toilet stops and refreshment options enroute – we love The Links Art Café.  Or try Valeries Tearoom or one of the many fish and chip shops on offer around the Spanish City.

From the harbour you can walk inland towards Holywell Dene and enjoy miles of beautiful woodland walks along the river.

Back at Seaton Sluice there are loads of great places to get a coffee, snack or bite to eat.  Try the Kings Arms or Melton Constable for pub grub.  Castaways Tea shop offers a fab dog friendly place to eat or grab a takeaway cappuccino at the Coffee Box.

Talking of fish and chips – a visit to the Harbour View is a must – one of the best in the area with huge portions!

If you are into art, why not pop into Tower House Gallery  or discover Shanty Art behind the Kings Arms.

Don’t forget to visit Seaton Delaval Hall too.  You pass this magnificent National Trust property en route to Seaton Sluice and it’s a great place to while away a few hours!

Happy exploring!
