Incredible stretches of pristine sands
Oct 2021 • Family
Beautiful dog friendly beach with gorgeous views of the castle that looks like it’s rising right out of the dunes! Huge stretches of sand as far as the eye can see. Clean asa thing I’ve ever seen would love to come back! Parking was challenging but got there in the end with a bit of luck

Blown away by the beauty
Oct 2021
First visit - completely bowled over. So beautiful. Huge, long clean beaches. Walked for miles and miles. We were based in Seahouses. Great visits to Farne Islands and Lindisfarne. Cannot wait to go back to the latter. It was stunningly beautiful. Saw seals and dolphins. Puffins will be there in the summer.

People are lovely .

Big problem is public transport. We were lucky to find a taxi at Alnmouth and he had to drive us back to Newcastle . Would have like to see Alnwick but buses were few and far between. We did take the bus to Bamburgh and walked onto the Nature Reserve - which was fabulous - with a long walk back.

Although we had a bad storm on the first day it was followed by Gulf Stream air and it was very warm in October.

Imagine Seahouses would be very busy in the summer!

Wild beauty exceeding all expectations
Sep 2021
This was my first time visiting Northumberland and it exceeded my expectations in every respect, not least in the beauty and variety of the coastal area. Between the stunning Cheviot hills and the sea, there's a wide coastal plain consisting of lush agricultual land and an almost continuous band of silvery dunes, beyond which you can find the most pristine, expansive and beautiful sandy beaches I've seen in Britain. Interspersed with these sweeping bays are low headlands, often topped by majestic castles, charming fishing villages and rocky coves, shimmering with rockpools. Wildlife abounds and the most obvious attractions are throngs of seabirds and occasional seals, although dolphins and whales are spotted frequently, close to shore and the variety of plant-life amongst the dunes and along the headlands is also impressive.
A truly stunning area deserving more recognition.

Coast of dreams
Sep 2021
First holiday in Northumberland and what an absolute pleasure to amble along the clean, sandy beaches taking in the views of the boats, lighthouses, seabirds and castles. We collected seashells and explored a few rockpools, the weather was kind and the sea really did look tempting if not a little choppy.

Initially we walked to Bamburgh castle and on another occasion to Dunstanburgh castle, both highly recommended.

I hope to be back soon.

Stunning coastline and beaches, attractive working harbour plus walking and related activities. Pleasantly uncrowded away from the chaotic High St area.

However all the above was spoilt, at least for us as state pensioners , by out of control adult cyclists who treat the roadside pavements as their own and pay scant regard to pedestrians. This was particularly bad on the road out of Seahouses towards Bamburgh and Seahouses beach where errant cyclists were joined by electric cycles &/or scooters which made for a dangerous mix with pedestrians.

The local council needs to address this as a matter of urgency before someone is seriously injured. Until then I'd recommend that elderly visitors avoid the area.

Stunning beaches and amazing views
Aug 2021
To avoid the crowds in Norfolk and the south west, we travelled north east. The long journey was well worth it. Excellent walking from Beadnell Bay both north and south.

Summer holiday
Aug 2021
What a fabulous place for the holiday with our granddaughters and 2 labradoodles. Although it was busier than usual, because of Covid there was still plenty of space on the beautiful beaches.
The town was quite crowded as expected but most people were keeping their distance. The local Coop was not very well stocked as we had to use a bit of imagination to sort our meals. We have been coming to Seahouses since 2002 and think it is a wonderful place to holiday

The walks between Seahouses & Bamburgh & also Seahouses & Beadnell are spectacular. Long sandy beaches especially at Beadnell. Lots of wildlife to watch. Brilliant part of the UK , would definitely recommend visiting.
