Situated in the perfect location on Seaton Lane, just a 5-minute drive from the seaside town of Seaham, our accommodation in County Durham is a quick car ride from some of the northeast’s most popular cities and tourist attractions. Here at The Seaton Lane Inn, we’re delighted to be able to cater for all types of visitors. From those who are exploring this part of the country on their own for the first time to friends and family who are looking to make fantastic, new memories, we have a variety of en-suite accommodation, in the form of stylish rooms, available for everyone.

All of our rooms, be they single, twin, double, or family, have been furnished with the local area in mind. Expect modern, airy spaces that are packed with nods to the coastal town of Seaham. Soft lighting, authentic wooden features, and plaid carpets make up each and every room. All this makes The Seaton Lane Inn the ideal place to retreat to after a day of exploring the Durham Heritage Coast, playing 18 holes at Seaham Golf Club, or any one of the championship golf courses located here.

Our dog friendly rooms extend a warm welcome to four-legged friends too, meaning you’ll never have to leave your canine behind! Simply add this option during the booking process and enjoy a wonderful stay with your dog by your side. 

On arrival at check-in, you’ll be greeted by our friendly team who will make you feel right at home. At The Seaton Lane Inn, we want to make our guests feel like this inn is theirs – we hope this place will feel like home for you and your loved ones.

With style and quirky charm in abundance, whether you’re stopping by for breakfast, a mid-morning bite, a business lunch, or meeting up with friends and family for a tasty evening meal, The Seaton Lane Inn is the place to be.

As one of many restaurants in County Durham, in the charming seaside town of Seaham, we have been proudly serving a choice of pub food, as well as new, more contemporary dishes that make for the perfect dining experience, be that for special occasions or a family holiday. Rather than sticking to the same old-same old, our menu changes with the seasons, and each dazzling dish is packed with seasonal ingredients that make it taste simply divine. The amazing team of chefs that we have here have crafted a wide range of dishes in an all-day menu that works, well, all day. To keep things even fresher, The Seaton Lane Inn team rustles up delicious rotating specials that are based on the freshest ingredients of the day. So, before you get settled in your seat to order, be sure to take a look at our specials boards. Who knows, you might just discover your next memorable meal.

On Sundays, you can enjoy The Seaton Lane Inn’s famous roast dinners with generous helpings of hand-carved, juicy meats, or our delicious Nut Roast served with all the trimmings. Relax, recharge, or celebrate by staying in our accommodation with a proper Sunday Roast, all topped off with the most perfect glass of wine from our extensive drinks menu. Sunday lunches are served from 12 noon to 5.00 pm. We want to make sure everyone has a good time here, which is why we have several vegan options that are ideal for those that choose not to eat meat.

There are few things better than taking in the sea air at Seaham Beach, or shopping until you drop in Newcastle Town centre and then heading back to our traditional yet modern inn, packed with all those features that make it feel like a home away from home. Put your feet up, order your favourite dish, and let our chefs do the cooking while you and your loved ones chat about the day you’ve just had. Our relaxed bar and spacious dining area make for the ideal venue to spend an afternoon or evening with loved ones. We also have a stunning orangery that is a picture-perfect backdrop for whatever it is you have planned.

When you arrive, whether fresh from your comfortable en-suite accommodation or simply popping in from the town for a quick treat, you can expect the same friendly, northern welcome. Choose to dine in our stone-flagged bar area cosied up with that special someone, enjoying a sandwich and pint of cask ale, or take the whole family into the restaurant space and let them choose their favourites from our scrumptious children’s menu. Whichever eating option you prefer, we have it here at The Seaton Lane Inn.
