An absolute gem of a find! Beautiful beach, fabulous walk over the dunes to reach it and completely unspoilt. No facilities, but that's what makes it so stunning. Spent hours here, whilst visiting the area over Easter. Simply fabulous!!!

Staying at Ross cottages (part of the Outchester & Ross group of 17 cottages - stay there, you will love it!) gave us a "heads up" on this unbelievable beach. For those not fortunate enough to be staying at one of the cottages, there's a small parking area, just before you enter Ross Farm. Okay, it's a 20/30 minute walk... More

We recently spent a week in Northumberland with our dogs. I can honestly say that the coastline in this area is spectacular, long stretches of pristine sand, huge sandunes, crystal clear waters....amazing. We enjoyed Bamburgh, small town with a spectacular castle overlooking it and the sea. It was free parking and terrific walks all around it. Go there...have a paddle...chill... More

Looking for a sandy beach to walk our dogs and think I found the best in the country. It was unspoilt clean and quiet, we have travelled up and down England but this is the best beach by far

We were staying in the area at Christmas and often walked on the beach. The coastline here is fantastic, it has not been ruined with arcades, Donkey rides and sea side town tattoo shops! It is unspoilt and beautiful. I can imagine it being wonderful in the summer

I like the remoteness of this beach and the slightly scary area beyond with the shifting sands and quicksands should you foolishly stray into it. The main beach is very safe to walk along and gives wonderful views of Holy Island and down towards Bamburgh. The walk to reach the beach means that it is never crowded and only more... More

This is one of our very favourite walks in North Northumberland. It is so beautiful and unspoilt and much quieter than the main beach at Bamburgh. One has to walk from the small road where the car can be parked across a track that leads to dunes which then open out with glorious views of the golden beach and sea.... More

So unspoiled and out of the way of the main beach infront of the Castle. The Beach is huge and the water looks so clean. Superb Beach.
