We have just visited Northumberland coast and based ourselves in Seahouses for 3 days. It is stunning. The green pastures end and within 100 yards you are on a wide sandy (walkable) beach. The sea life is extensive and the towns and villages well equipped...More

Spent the time either watching out for dolphins or walking the miles of deserted beaches close by. Weather was cold and windy but did not detract from the amazing area

This place of refuge is natural beauty at its best! Its no wonder people who are seeking peace and tranquillity are drawn to it in their droves. A boon to the weary soul and feet...indeed an outstanding natural beauty!

Completed the Indurance Life Marathon along this coastal path. Hardly felt the distance, because the views are so beautiful. Ran past three stunning castles, along soft sandy beaches for 20 km's.

We visited Seahouses, Bamburgh, Alnmouth, Beadnell and Lindisfarne on our stay in Northumberland. I loved all the beaches but the one in Beadnell was our favourite.

It’s about a 10 minute walk along the coastal path which leads you to some steps down to the beach. We are in our late 50’s and we found it quite easy . Hope that helps... plenty of rock pools for dogs to explore
