Fantastic beach

Stunning beach and backdrop. Clean. Safe. Perfect for sandcastles, long sunny or even windswept days and long walks. Love it!

Why have we never visited this area previously? It has everything for familes, couples and all age groups. Plenty of places of interest within a short car journey with easy access. Will definitely be back soon

A lovely clean beach with stunning views of Holy Island and the Farne Islands, with Bamburgh Castle as the backdrop. Only a few minutes walk from the village or a fun walk over the dunes from the castle car park.

One of the most spectacular beaches I have ever visited. Stunningly clean with beautiful views in all directions. Also a must see for Frank Turner fans as it was here he filmed the videos for 'If I Ever Stray' and 'Sailor's Boots'!
