Blyth Beach Huts
A trip to the beautiful beach at Blyth has always been a great day out, but you can now make the most of your surroundings by renting a fabulous brand new beach hut on the promenade!
The Northumberland coast is famed for its long stretches of sandy beaches, and Blyth’s south beach is no exception. The beach huts in Blyth are the only huts in Northumberland, and as well as the stunning views across the sand and sea, they are perfectly situated for access to a brand new children’s play area, walks, cycle paths and a very popular fish and chip restaurant and take-away!
Blyth town itself has an attractive park with a fantastic children’s water play area, a thriving market place, and of course, Blyth Sports Centre – a large leisure facility with a swimming pool and other great sport, leisure and catering facilities.
The beach huts are situated on the main promenade in Blyth, Northumberland. They overlook a long strip of golden sand – popular with walkers, surfers, canoeists, sea anglers and families alike.
There are 20 beach huts altogether - 2 rows of 10. Each hut has a ‘green’ living roof and sits on a timber deck. The timber huts themselves are stained and painted in a variety of bright colours.
To further enhance their individuality, each beach hut has its own name. Children from the local primary school named the huts, and youngsters made their own piece of artwork to go with the names which are displayed inside each hut There is also a new amenity building called the Dave Stephens Centre a short distance from the beach huts where there are public toilets and some external showers.

Seaton Deleval Hall
Seaton Delaval Hall is a great house set in its own estate with lovely gardens and a fine collection; but it is also much more.
It is a signpost pointing to the diverse history of a family which acquired land here in the late 11th century. The house occupies the site of a Norman settlement, and its original Norman chapel remains in use today.
Built between 1719 and 1730 for Admiral George Delaval, it is not only the finest house in the north east of England, but also among the finest works of its architect, Sir John Vanbrugh, one of the masters of English Baroque.
For 900 years, the estate has been a stage for drama, intrigue and romance while the surrounding landscape has fuelled industrial revolution. The house has survived terrible fires, military occupation and potential ruin. Now it provides an amazing space for arts, heritage and the community to come together.
