Welcome to Malabar

Welcome to Malabar

Malabar offers quality en suite bed and breakfast accommodation in Seahouses, which is situated on the magnificent Heritage coastline of Northumberland. We are close to the centre of Seahouses and within a 5 minute walk to the harbour or the golf course.

Seahouses is a perfect coastal base from where you can explore the many and varied attractions that this part of the English Border county has to offer. It has something for everyone.

Your hosts, Brian and Moira, are a local couple who have been in the hospitality industry for a number of years and are always available to offer help and advice on the attractions in the area and how best to get there.

Seahouses is located on the very picturesque Northumberland coastal route for walkers and the coast and castles cycle route and we offer a warm welcome and excellent facilities for both these activities.

Malabar has been reccommended on Simonseeks by travel professional Colin Baird. Colin has written a guide called Cycling along the northeast coast of England, he describes Malabar as "Luxurious bed and breakfast with modern rooms and gorgeous en-suite bathrooms and walk in showers.  You can expect a warm welcome and a delicious slice of home made lemon sponge cake in each room which is a lovely touch".
