Today we are travelling further north though not very far to Seahouses. On the way we decide to stop at Beadnell.
There’s a large overflow carpark at Beadnell where we can get an hour’s free parking. A wander down across the beach towards the harbour is fun. T gets a good soaking by an exuberant wave on the harbour wall whilst trying to photograph said wave. Gives me and a couple of women bystanders a good laugh!
Onto Seahouses to a campsite we’ve stayed at before. It’s a 35 minute walk into the village but we can’t resist the £15/night special offer.
It’s raining on and off all day. We enjoy hot showers in a lovely warm bathroom. We eat early in the van and then wander into the village around 6pm. We take a footpath to avoid most of the main road.
Our first stop is at a social club which is very close to the ginormous static caravan park hidden in trees behind the houses on the main road. It’s quiet this early. On into Seahouses where our first stop is the harbour and then a visit to the Bamburgh Castle Inn which is more hotel then pub.
Next we try the Black Swan Inn which is more of a restaurant and that room is packed out and smells amazing but the bar is empty.
Next door is the Schooner Inn which is my favourite. Quite small with artwork everywhere especially in the ladies room!
Finally onto The Olde Ship Inn which has shiny brass hanging everywhere and a friendly vibe. This is the only pub we’ve visited before on our last trip to Seahouses.
We begin our walk home this time up the main street as the footpath isn’t lit with a quick stop at the social club which is now much busier and just finishing up a lively quiz.
