Holidays in Beadnell

A sandy cove loved by water sports enthusiasts

The idyllic harbour at Beadnell

The sweeping golden curve of Beadnell Bay sprawls out from the picturesque Northumberland village of Beadnell. A small harbour backed by attractive lime kilns sits at the head of the bay, while the village itself is split between the harbour area and the main road which heads off north towards Seahouses.

The village is one of Northumberland’s most popular destinations for water sports enthusiasts, with Beadnell Bay ideal for surfing, kitesurfing, windsurfing, sailing and scuba diving. Beadnell has a sailing club and boats can be launched from the harbour for casual sailing just off the beach, or to head over to the Farne Islands. Boat trips also run to explore these wildlife rich islands and visitors can disembark on Inner Farne, Staple Island and Longstone to watch seals, puffins and other sea birds in their natural environment. If you’re looking for an activity to get the adrenalin going, wakeboarding, waterskiing and jetskiing can also be enjoyed in the bay.

Those who wish to keep their feet firmly on dry land will not be short of places to explore. Mile upon mile of coastal walks stretch in either direction from Beadnell. An enduringly beautiful route heads south along the dunes to Low Newton where you can stop for a pub lunch before heading back.

Boats at Beadnell

Beadnell itself has a small selection of eateries. The Craster Arms has an extensive food menu including all the traditional pub favourites, Beadnell Towers offers local, seasonal produce in stylishly comfortable surroundings and Salt Water Café serves up delicious breakfasts, lunches and sweet treats.

The village has a small shop with a Post Office, and supermarkets and shopping can be found in Seahouses (2 miles). A bustling harbour village, Seahouses is also a lovely place for a day trip, or a jumping off point for boat excursions to the Farne Islands. In Seahouses you can play crazy golf, try out one of the many eateries, sample some smoked kipper (a local delicacy), browse the independent shops, go rock pooling or book a horse riding session on the beach.

"There’s plenty to fill a holiday in this delightful corner of Northumberland."

Visit the iconic Bamburgh Castle (5 miles), RNLI Grace Darling Museum (5.2 miles), beaches at Seahouses (2 miles), Embleton Bay (6.5 miles) and Beadnell itself and head south to Dunstanburgh Castle (8.5 miles). And when you’re not out exploring, make the most of the relaxing surroundings of one of our holiday cottages in Beadnell.
