Characterised by mile after mile of sun-speckled moorland, prominent peaks and charming chocolate box villages, the region is beaming with natural beauty - an exquisite escape, perfect for a camping holiday.
Skirting the Scottish border, Northumberland’s coastline is purely stunning. The county’s ‘wild and woolly’ appearance is softened by its pleasant pace of life. Packed with personality, it’s the perfect place to be to fuel your sense of adventure.
With beaches in abundance, Northumberland boasts more than 30 miles of gorgeous golden sands, giving you glorious settings in which to bask in the beauty of this colourful county. Our two Northumberland coast campsite facilities, give you easy access to the region’s radiant shoreline. We invite you to experience this picturesque part of the world.
Beaches near our Beadnell Bay Campsite
The beautiful Beadnell Bay Beach is a stone’s throw away from our Club Site of the same name. This bustling stretch of golden sand is distinctly shaped like a horseshoe and is a hub of activity, where you can enjoy windsurfing, water skiing, canoeing and sailing from its shores. You can even explore the depths of the sea by going wreck diving.
Famed as part of Northumberland’s Heritage Coastline, Beadnell Bay Beach is often frequented by families. Its blend of huge sweeping sands sheltered by dunes and clear protected waters make this stretch of shoreline the perfect setting in which to enjoy seaside strolls and sunbathing. Beadnell is home to a tiny harbour that’s worth exploring, too.
Journey north for a mile or two and you will reach the serene Seahouses North Beach. Backed by grassy dunes, this splendid stretch of sand is a peaceful paradise with acres of space for sandcastle building, bird-watching or even a round of beach cricket.
The village of Seahouses overlooks a charming harbour, where you can saunter and experience the hustle and bustle of this historical fishing village. With an ‘Aladdin’s Cave’ of cafes and shops, the village is the perfect place to enjoy a pit stop.
From the harbour, you can hop aboard one of the regular boat trips bound for the Farne Islands. Along the way, enjoy one of the UK’s best wildlife experiences as you encounter more than 150,000 seabirds that flock towards the harbour during breeding season and Britain’s largest grey seal colony.
A few miles north of Seahouses is the breath-taking Bamburgh Beach. This incredible stretch of golden sand is overlooked by the majestic Bamburgh Castle, which dominates the skyline. Backed by dramatic sand dunes, gaze out to sea and experience spectacular views towards the Farne Islands.
Tour Bamburgh Castle to unearth the myths and legends of this former fortress. Shrouded in mystery, the castle is a Grade I listed building, which has stood atop a natural throne of volcanic dolerite on Northumbria’s coastline for 1,400 years, and is now one of the largest inhabited castles in the country. Hear dark tales of royal rebellion and bloody battles that took place in and around the castle and relive the legacy of the Armstrong Empire as you journey back in time through 14 rooms displaying more than 3,000 iconic artefacts. A place of stature and prestige, the castle forms an illustrious part of British history and is not to be missed.
Beaches near our Dunstan Hill Campsite
Six miles separate our Beadnell Bay and Dunstan Hill Club Site's, with the best of Northumberland’s beaches sandwiched in between. The beaches at Beadnell Bay, Seahouses and Bamburgh Castle are all within a 20-25 minute drive of the Dunstan Hill Club Site, while Craster Beach is close by, too.
Set against the backdrop of the spectacular ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle, Craster Beach is a rock haven that’s great for dogs. The beach provides hours of adventure for all the family, including four-legged friends, who can explore every ‘nook and cranny.’
There’s a six mile walk to enjoy from Craster to Low Newton, which was previously named one of the top 10 UK walks by the National Trust. Along the way, there are plenty of sand dunes to explore, while the coastal views are a sight to behold.
Dunstanburgh Castle is steeped in history, built at a time when relations between King Edward II and his most powerful baron, Earl Thomas of Lancaster, fractured and became hostile. Tour the castle and discover the sequence of events that led to bloodshed, culminating in the execution of Earl Thomas in 1322.
