Newly refurbished, this popular inn in Seaton is just off the A19, close to Seaham and within easy reach of Sunderland, Durham and Newcastle. A contemporary, botanical theme, where outdoors meets indoors, runs throughout the property. The emphasis is on food here and guests can dine on home-made dishes and enjoy a drink in the inn's orangery. The comfortable bedrooms are modern, spacious and smartly furnished.
