SEAHAM HALL, County Durham

THE PAST:

In 1792, a small house was built on the site of Seaham’s old manor house and village inn, by Sir Ralph Milbanke. In 1815 the English poet, Lord Byron, married Milbanke’s daughter, Annabella, in the first-floor drawing room of the house. Known as Seaham House, it now lies within the larger, later Seaham Hall. The famously morose Byron spent many hours walking on the cliffs, and the road on which the house stands was later named Lord Byron’s Walk to reflect this.

In 1821, the estate was purchased by the wealthy 3rd Marquess of Londonderry. Over the next three decades, he extended and enclosed the grounds, enlarged the house by adding two wings, and had a private railway station built – which he named Londonderry. He and his wife entertained lavishly; their guests, including royalty, arriving by rail. After the 3rd Marquess died, his widow added vast dining and drawing rooms, the staircase and entrance hall, and the grand entrance porch with its four imposing Tuscan columns.

By the time the 7th Marquess inherited Seaham Hall, the family wasn’t spending much time there - their main residence was the more impressive Mount Stewart, in County Down, Northern Ireland (now owned by the National Trust). In 1927, they gave Seaham Hall to Durham County Council, to use as a sanatorium. It was a centre for chest diseases and cardio-thoracic surgery for 50 years, but closed in 1978, later re-opening as a private nursing home, which closed in 1995.

Seaham Hall was bought privately in 1997, and transformed from a derelict building into a luxury hotel. It won the North East Tourism 'Small Hotel of the Year' award in 2015.

THE PRESENT:

With its award-winning fine-dining restaurant and award-winning spa, this is one of the north-east’s leading luxury hotels. Its chic contemporary decor is as refreshing as the sea air from which its location benefits. Seaham Hall is also noted for its sizeable collection of contemporary art – which includes a stained-glass ceiling based on Byron’s poetry, in the atrium.

THE PLACE FOR YOU?

Come for fine dining, for an exceptional oriental spa experience, or for a good base on a touring holiday in the region: Seaham Hall is within striking distance of Hadrian’s Wall, and 20 minutes from Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

Seaham Hall loves well-behaved children and can recommend a registered babysitting service for which there will be an additional charge. Cots are available on request and they are also happy to offer child-friendly food.

The hotel is licensed for civil weddings.
