You don’t come on holiday to go shopping, but there are essentials that you’ll need while you’re here and you mustn’t forget to take something home for your neighbour who has been looking after the cat!

As such, we boast a great variety of shops on your doorstep with many more independent shops than you find in many other parts of the country as well as good supermarkets etc.  A good guide to everything in Seahouses can be found if you CLICK HERE.

Fifteen miles south of Seahouses is the local market town of Alnwick where you will find a range of independent shops, many more banks, larger supermarkets and much, much more.  Down the A1 for 30 minutes gets you to Morpeth which is another bustling market town with different shops from Alnwick.

If High Street shopping is what you are after, then you can head south in the car, or on the train from Alnmouth, and you will find yourself in the City Centre of Newcastle or across the river is the shoppers’ paradise of the Metro Centre.

As we are right in the North of England here, it’s not too far to Scotland and if you fancy it you can get to Edinburgh on the train (from Alnmouth) in just over an hour and half where you’ll be hard pushed to come home with any spending money left!
