Dating back to 1791, the iconic Seaham Hall, home to the award-winning Serenity Spa, is just 30 minutes’ drive from the captivating city of Durham.

Set in 37 acres of rustic and alluring countryside with views to the wild and romantic heritage coast, this 5 star hotel has a fascinating past and like many Georgian country houses has a rich history and an eccentric character that contradicts its contemporary interior.

Byron’s Restaurant is a perfect place for a scrumptious dinner for two or a convivial place for a group of friends to gather to enjoy fabulous food in a contemporary and chic environment. The second restaurant, Ozone is our pan Asian inspired restaurant located within the Serenity Spa offering authentic yet innovative menus in an informal atmosphere where you can enjoy wonderful cocktails, great food and fabulous views from the spherical wrap around outdoor terrace.

Located adjacent to the main entrance with fabulous views to the gardens through magnificent Georgian windows, the intimate atmosphere of The Lounge Bar makes it an ideal place to sit back and enjoy the surroundings of Seaham Hall.

The Sports Lounge at Seaham Hall offers bespoke black leather lounge seating encircling a 9ft Sam K purple biaze and slate all American pool table, with custom lighting, stately oak floors and a few oddities to bring a smile.

As a guest you are invited to luxuriate at the tranquil 44,000 sq.ft. Serenity Spa, the perfect environment to relax and escape the complications of the modern world. With a 20 metre pool, outdoor hot tubs, a hydrotherapy pool and therapists trained to deliver a variety of treatments that encourage relaxation and a state of well-being, a visit should be a priority.

Seaham Hall has 22 of the most luxurious suites ranging from Junior Suites to the outstanding Penthouse Suite which offers stunning uninterrupted coastal views. Each suite has its own individual style and character, some offer private gardens with Scandinavian Style Hot Tubs and all have spectacular garden or sea views.

Seaham Hall had recently expanded, on a modest scale, to become 22 perfectly-formed suites. We are very excited about our newest creation, the Ada Lovelace suite (images of which can be seen in the gallery), which promises to be a wonderful reminder – and celebration – of the Hall’s fascinating history.

With a selection of meeting and private dining rooms accommodating 2 to 120 guests, Seaham Hall is the perfect backdrop for business meetings, private events and stunning weddings.

Take a walk in picturesque grounds, meander along to the beach, practice your putting on the putting green situated in the grounds of Seaham Hall or for the more adventurous, explore the charming surroundings on mountain bikes provided for your use on a complimentary basis. For those wanting to explore the history and heritage, take a trip to Hadrian’s Wall, Holy Island or Durham Cathedral which are all within easy reach.
