No facilities, quite a walk from the nearest place to park, but a beautiful place to visit. We were staying at a nearby farm and noticed that the beach is not signposted, and there is no official car park. Folks were just parking on the verge of the nearest roads. The beach is long and lovely and dune backed.

Please don't take the dog here. They have to be on the lead and by the shore at all times. And, even then, they can still disturb nesting birds and seals. There are umpteen other beaches you can go to. Also, be aware that is a 1 mile walk from the car. Having said that, it is a gorgeous beach... More

A lovely, amazing, quiet beach. What space, all with the backdrop of Bamburgh castle. It is a little walk from where you park the car, but very much worth it. It took a little to find. A signpost to Ross farm gave it away in the end. Can't wait to show the girlies.

Really do not know if Inshould be telling you about this beach, as we would like to keep it to ourselves. Well worth the short walk to the beach and you certainly will not be disappointed.

Perfect location to sunbath and plenty of beach for the... More

Hubby and I are visitors to this beautiful beach once or twice yearly. After the hike over the dunes, an amazing view unfolds, the fantastic view both north and south of this lovely beach. We've visited on glorious days and on those affected by the chilly off-sea breeze. Never deterred by the weather, we just vary our attire! We've never... More
