Serving Young People in a Christian Place
Seahouses Hostel is near to the coastal fishing and holiday village of Seahouses in North Northumberland.
Approximately 50 miles north of Newcastle upon Tyne and 25 miles south of Berwick upon Tweed, the Hostel provides self-catering residential accommodation for groups of young people, children and their leaders (from Early Years to Key Stages 1-5 and beyond).
The Hostel is run by a Christian foundation within the Diocese of Newcastle, and welcomes groups of all faiths and none.
Standing beside St Paul's Church at the edge of the village, the Hostel was converted in 1989 from a girls' school and the farm outbuildings of a former vicarage. An extensive renovation and new build was completed in 2017.
Visitors to the hostel are from a wide range of cultural backgrounds and interests.
If you or your group are wondering where to stay in Northumberland, the hostel is an ideal base for:
- schools and colleges
- educational trips
- Brownies, Guides, Cubs, Scouts, Cadets
- other uniformed organisations
- church or parish groups
- community based groups
- diocesan and deanery groups
- youth groups
- special interest groups
- conservation groups
We look forward to welcoming you.
