Dog-friendly hotel stays on the Durham Coast

Seaside breaks with your four-legged friend

Embraced by both untouched countryside and rugged coastline, Seaham Hall's sprawling estate is the perfect place for an escape with your beloved pooch. Our spacious Garden Suites boast their very own outdoor spaces for dogs to roam, and a hot tub to unwind in after a day spent exploring Durham.

A getaway for you and your pup

Explore the beauty of County Durham’s coastline, and roam the picturesque landscape of the nearby coastal paths, sweeping beaches and endless countryside with your pup.

  1. Our Pet Policy

    Our breathtaking coastline is heaven on earth for any creature with fur, four legs and a wet nose. With our beautiful clifftop location, you have easy access via the steps to the beach below so your pet can enjoy a splash in the sea! We even have special doggy towels to dry off afterwards. Alternatively, the grounds of the hotel are a perfect spot to walk your pet and try and spot a squirrel or two.

    To keep pets and guests happy, the following guidelines have been put in place:

    Dogs are welcome to stay by prior arrangement only. Please notify the hotel at the time of booking when travelling with your pet.

    You will be provided with our dog-friendly Garden Room with Outdoor Hot Tub, for the duration of your stay. Please note dogs are not allowed in the hot tub or the bathroom in the suite.

    We have a special bed and breakfast package which includes overnight accommodation in one of our Garden Suites with a hot tub for two guests including a maximum of two medium dogs.

    We kindly request that your dog does not sit on any furniture.

    Parents should pick up any “deposits” left by their pets whilst visiting the hotel and the surrounding areas

    Pets should always be kept on a lead (non-extendable) or in a carrier in public areas and in the garden of the suite.

    All dogs on a lead are permitted into their specific suite, the hotel lobby, garden areas and The Lounge.

    If you are leaving your suite at any point, please ensure that your dog is in its own secure kennel crate within the room (crates are not provided). Please make every effort to keep your pets from barking indoors.

    If you wish to dine in The Dining Room, Ozone restaurant or relax in our spa, your dog may be left in your suite to snooze providing it is in a crate or pet carrier. If you do leave your dog in your suite, please make our reception team aware of your location in case we need to contact you.

    Please ensure that you remove any excess water/mud from your dog after a walk before entering the room. Additional towels are available on request from our reception team.

    Should your dog soil within the room causing permanent damage or the necessity for additional cleaning services, or any other damage, you will be charged accordingly to the card provided at check-in.

    If you need doggy daycare, it’s provided just minutes away for your pampered pooch by Pets Love Company - 07949 559760 or Fetch Your Lead - 07508 333050, which means you can get out and enjoy
