Hit the spot
On the Durham coast, near Newcastle.

Perfect for a pamper break.

Pillow Talk
Room 6 (a Suite) is a favourite with honeymooners , while Room 15 (a Junior suite) has a bathtub for two at the foot of the bed. Room 2 has a garden terrace and big two-person bathtub.

Eat & Drink

Dining in
Michelin-starred modern European cooking is on the menu at Seaham Hall’s swish White Room restaurant. Chef Kenny Atkinson’s ambitious menu of daily-changing dishes include rolled terrine of partridge and cheek of rare breed organic pork to start, with wild sea bass, Shetland salmon or venison from the Balmoral estate as mains. Exotic desserts include blood orange parfait with roasted plum and toasted almond icecream.

Ozone, the Serenity Spa’s Thai brasserie and juice bar, serves a range of delicious dishes with an Asian slant.

Breakfast is served until 10.30am.

Room service
Available 24 hours.

See & Do

See & Do
Cross Newcastle’s signature Millennium bridge for a peep at the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art – an eye-opening collection. Make a trip to medieval Alnwick Castle, the film set for Hogwart’s in the Harry potter movies. Durham cathedral is a beauty, while Beamish Museum shows how working people in the North lived in centuries past. Hadrian’s Wall beckons if you fancy some serious walking.

One of the hottest spas in the UK, the Serenity Spa at Seaham Hall wraps around an ozone cleansed swimming pool (so it feels like swimming in Evian water). You’ll also find a steam room, hammam, plunge pools, exercise studio, gym and outdoor hot tubs. There’s also an après-sauna ice fountain and plunge pool (invigorating and then some!) and a hydrotherapy bath with 12 massage stations.

Signature spa treatments include a hot foot and scalp massage and hot stone massage ritual. There’s a huge menu to choose from, and some treatment rooms are designed for couples.

Diary Dates
