Situated on the Durham heritage coastline, Leaf Cottage provides the perfect base for enjoying the superb countryside and culture of Durham County, Land of the prince Bishops.
Refurbished in 2020 to a good standard, Leaf Cottage is warm, cosy and comfortable, and is ideal for families, couples, singletons and our four-legged friends, as Seaham beaches are dog friendly throughout the year. With a private courtyard garden you can enjoy a relaxing evening with the tipple of your choice, alternatively you can visit one of the nearby pubs or restaurants overlooking the beach.
Seaham is a lively harbour town with its own marina on the Durham Heritage Coast. Admire the dramatic cliff top views on your walk along the coastal path or enjoy the tranquil beauty of the sandy North Beach with its inviting rock pools.
Don’t forget to take your picture with ’Tommy’, the WW1 statue. You can also treat yourself to dinner at Seaham Hall, once the Georgian Estate of Sir Ralph Milbanke, where Lord Byron, considered one of the historical leading figures of the Romantic movement, married Sir Ralph’s daughter, Anne Isabella Milbanke. Leaf Cottage is ideally place near the A19 for those wishing to explore further afield.
Durham city on the river Wear, with its famously stunning Cathedral, a UNESCO world heritage site, and castle, as well as its world famous university, is easily accessible with a 20-minute drive - take advantage of the Park and Ride. Nearby Newcastle upon Tyne boasts a first class shopping experience with numerous restaurants and cafés.
Visit the Baltic Art museum or the Sage Gateshead on the river Tyne. You can also visit the world famous Angel of the North sculpture, designed by Sir Antony Gormley. For those wishing to explore the delights of the Durham countryside, you can visit Teesdale, Weardale or Tynedale, all set in the wild and wonderful north Pennines (an AONB). Why not visit High Force in Teesdale, which is one the largest waterfalls in England.
