We wandered up and down the beach and sat a while looking across the beach. Even though it was half-term the beach was not crowded. Not a lot other than the beach to be honest other than The Ship Inn (seperately reviewed).

Low Newton is a rather special place. Not a lot there but excellent scenery and good walks both north and south. The Ship Inn is the place to stop for refreshment or reason enough just to visit the place. My kids love the beach here...More

Visited this beach in Dec and well it was amazing. Not a single bit of plastic or rubbish was seen. I can only imagine how it would look in the summer. There is parking available at cost.

Without a doubt one of the best beaches in Northumberland. A hidden gem. When you come over the hill to the village you get a great view of the beach and further on to Dunstanburgh castle.
