Holidays in Low Newton

A peaceful and traditional Northumberland village with a beautiful beach

Low Newton's beach

Low Newton is a coastal village on the Northumbrian coast close to Craster, and the amazing ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle. Characterised by its long and sandy beach, Low Newton is a lovely choice if you enjoy easy-going treks, golf, and water sports. The village is also a lovely destination for bird watchers to holiday because of the nearby Newton Pool Bird Reserve.

Located inside the boundaries of the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), Low Newton is just 5.5 miles north of Craster and 5.5 miles south of Beadnell. The AONB around the village is owned and managed in the main by the National Trust. The long stretch of sandy beach is the heart of Low Newton, a wonderful location for walking the dog or strolling arm-in-arm with your loved one. If you like water sports like surfing, yachting, sea kayaking, paddle boarding, and kite surfing, then this is a superb choice of holiday destination. The village centres around a square of cream-coloured houses that look out over the North Sea, there’s a pub, The Ship, here too. It draws diners in from far and wide with word of its great food and friendly atmosphere. The Ship also has its own mini brewery on-site where you can sample their own selection of ales!

“Low Newton is a gorgeous coastal backwater, perfect for birdwatching, castle-bagging and long walks by the sea…”

Pull on your walking boots and head for the horizon along the pretty circular walk that can be picked up in Low Newton and leads you around to Craster and the iconic clifftop remains of Dunstanburgh Castle. Low Newton’s beach is backed by large dunes and 80 metres behind these is Newton Pond, famous for the Newton Pool Bird Reserve. This is a wildlife haven with many seabirds, shorebirds, waders and wildfowl to be seen from the two purpose-built hides. Bird spotting any time of year at the Newton Pool Bird Reserve, it’s a particularly rewarding pursuit for enthusiasts to get involved in.

Other local attractions to discover are the neighbouring seaside resorts of Beadnell and Craster. Craster is world-famous for its kippers, so head down there to eat them at the source. They are landed and smoked in the village harbour. Low Newton is also close to some very large golf courses such as Dunstanburgh Castle Golf Course, Seahouses Golf Club, Alnmouth Golf Club, and Bamburgh Castle Course.
