About the Residences at Seaham Hall

About us

The Residences at Seaham Hall are an exclusive collection of coastal lodges that combine the luxuries of hotel living with the freedom of holiday home ownership. Set within a secluded, gated community near the Durham Heritage Coast, these brand new two and three-bedroom lodges are the perfect choice for a second home in the North East.

About Ben Stokes

Our brand ambassador

International cricketer, Ben Stokes, has played for Durham since 2009 and called the area his home for the past 11 years. Living just 10 minutes away, he has become a regular visitor of Serenity Spa with his family and, over the years, has also enjoyed several stays at the hotel. Ben is a celebrated local star here in Durham and we're proud that he is the face of Seaham Hall and our Residences.

About Lord Byron

Our history

Seaham Hall dates back to 1791, but it wasn't until 1814 that it's most famous resident, Lord Byron, first visited the property. It was here that the celebrated poet married Annabella Milbanke in 1815, and the hotel now features the glamorous, and truly luxurious, Ada Lovelace Suite, which takes its name from the couple's daughter.

About Durham

Our location

The Residences are positioned on the outskirts of Durham - one of the UK's most beautiful cities. Durham is home to a historic cathedral, fascinating castle ruins, and a wealth of shops, bars and restaurants. But it's also just a stone's throw from the North York Moors, the Yorkshire Dales, and the North Pennines. What's more, the Durham Heritage Coast and rugged Durham Dales are just a short drive away.


We want to ensure every stay with us is truly unforgettable. We only work with brands we believe in, that's why we have partnered with luxury skincare providers, ishga and Temple Spa, as well as Taittinger Champagne and BMW.
