Seaham Hall welcomes Ben Stokes as ambassador

UK: International cricketer and England vice-captain Ben Stokes has been announced as the official brand ambassador for Seaham Hall and its soon-to-launch Residences.

Overlooking the Durham Heritage Coast, 24 luxury lodge Residences are set to be unveiled by Seaham Hall in August.

Available for purchase, owners will have the opportunity to use the Residences themselves and/or rent them to visitors through Seaham Hall.

Each Residence will feature a terrace, floor-to-ceiling windows, and private parking for two cars. Guests will have full access to Seaham’s facilities, along with other local benefits including reduced green fees at Sharpley Golf Course.

Investment in the Residences will create up to 190 jobs in the construction industry and supply chain, plus additional roles at Seaham Hall.

With strong local ties to the North East, Stokes is a regular visitor to the hotel. As the new face of the brand, Stokes will work closely with Seaham Hall on several projects. 

Stokes said: “It is a privilege to work with Seaham Hall, a local business whose values and strong ties to the community I greatly respect, and whose extraordinary and historic hotel is an absolute joy to experience.

“Seaham Hall is not only a superb hotel and spa in terms of its luxury facilities and great location, on Durham’s Heritage Coast, but I am always very impressed by the incredibly friendly staff, who deliver five-star service that’s very different from the norm – it’s friendly and relaxed and hits the spot perfectly. I look forward to working with the Seaham Hall team over the coming months and to building a strong association with the brand, and both its existing and new fans.”

Ross Grieve, Seaham Hall’s managing director, added: “Our new partnership with Ben further builds on Seaham Hall’s connections with the local and regional community. He is a celebrated local star here in Durham and we’re very proud to have him associated with, and be the face of, our hotel and spa, plus the forthcoming launch of our new Residences.”

Seaham Hall reopened on 7 July.
