We have a few weeks left to enjoy the great British sunshine so we wanted to share our top 5 mindful spots for tenants to visit on their lunch break.

We’re extremely lucky to be located in such a beautiful part of the country with the sea right on our door step and… because of that, we really should make the most of it!

Getting out into nature and living more of a mindful life can not only have a wonderful impact on your personal life, but your professional life too…it can lead you to being more productive, reduce stress levels, increase your focus, give you more relationship satisfaction and a range of other incredible health benefits….so why wouldn’t we take advantage of these wonderful mindful spots right on our door step during our lunch break and free time?

So here they are, our top 5 mindful places for you to visit on your lunch break this summer:

 Seaham Marina

The Marina is a short drive away or a 20 minute walk along the sea front from Spectrum Business Park. As you walk down the cobbled street towards the Marina you’ll see a harbour full of beautiful little fishing boats and a collection of independent cafes and shops.

Our favourite little spot is The Lookout café where you can enjoy the views of the lighthouse and clear blue waters. We definitely recommend a trip to the Marina on your lunch break…it’s also a great place to reflect and peacfully work.

Sea Front Eateries

Seaham’s North Terrace boasts a small collection of wonderful independent café’s, restaurants and bars (including the famous Lickety Splits ice cream parlour) which look onto the striking WWI Tommy statue and views of the North Sea.

It’s a wonderful spot to enjoy lunch. Great spots for a mindful lunch on North Terrace include The Lamp Room, Humbles and Leaf, Bark and Berries.

Noses Point

Noses point is a spectacular popular spot…right on our doorstep!  As you leave Spectrum Business Park, you’ll see signs guiding you down to the footpaths towards Noses point.

Nose’s Point is a double Site of Special Scientific Interest for its geology and ecology. It’s a great spot to wander down to and enjoy a picnic lunch with a sea view. It’s also a beautiful spot for for a scenic afternoon stroll to clear your mind and re-energise. People come from all over the North East to enjoy this walk and we’re lucky enough to have it right under our nose.

And…they actually filmed scenes from one of The Alien movies down at Noses point due to its dramatic coastline views and scenery. More recently it has been used for TV dramas Vera, The Last Kingdom, Beowulf and Dark Angel. It’s definitely a spot to check out!

Durham Coast

Spectrum Business Park is surrounded by the beautiful colourful and dramatic landscapes of Durham’s Coast; its beaches, cliff tops and headlands. Instead of just enjoying the views from your office windows, why not head down and breathe in some of that delicious fresh air to re-set before the day’s over?

Here’s some wonferful information we found out about Durham’s coast from This is Durham’s website: ‘Durham’s Heritage Coast is recognised internationally for its rare plants and wildlife. The limestone grasslands of the cliff tops are one of the UK’s most protected habitats and home to unique and varied wildlife. Inland from the coast are hidden denes containing remnants of ancient yew and ash woodland. The largest is the picturesque Castle Eden Dene, a National Nature Reserve with 550 acres of natural woodland and 12 miles of footpaths. A peaceful and tranquil place, it is home to over 450 species of plants and wild flowers, many of which are typical of ancient woodlands that date back to pre-medieval times. Seaham is a lively harbour town on Durham’s Heritage Coast and is home to one of the oldest churches in the country and an award-winning spa hotel.’

Seaham Hall

The iconic Seaham Hall is a 10 minute drive away. It’s home to an award winning Serenity Spa and beautiful 5* hotel.

However what we love most about Seaham Hall is it’s relaxed, beautiful bar area where you can enjoy a hot drink and a snack or treat yourself to one of their delicious scones. It’s the perfect spot for an important meeting, team one on one reviews and a quiet lunch. Afterwards you can enjoy your drive back to Spectrum Business park soaking in the sea views or take a stroll around their beautiful gardens. It’s definitely one of our favourite places! Oh…and on your way over, why not stop off at Seaham beach, known as ‘Seaham Hall Beach’ which is famous for its multi colour sea glass?
