Things To Do in Beadnell

This harbour village is set at the end of a glorious stretch of beach known as Beadnell Bay. You are on the doorstep of one of the best-equipped water sport areas on the coast, giving you the option of surfing, sailing, bodyboarding and even scuba diving. With proximity to the Farne Islands, there are many diving sites that often have great visibility and give divers the opportunity to dive with seals and swim with dolphins.

If it’s just a laid-back, take it at your own pace type of break that you are after, then lazy days on the secluded beach at Beadnell Bay, just three minutes from the cottage, are what unwinding is all about. Spectate rather the participate as from your deckchair; you’ll regularly catch sight of surfers taken on the challenge of the swells that can reach up to 15ft. Back in the village, there are plenty of places to enjoy some freshly caught fish and chips and if you are feeling in a romantic mood, then an afternoon cream tea, complete with bubbly, is served at the Salt Water Café on Harbour Road. Evening entertainment is sewn up by the Craster Arms, which still incorporates a 15th-century tower house. Over the August bank holiday weekend, the pub hosts “Crastonbury”, where local bands make up the line-up and there is revelry until the early hours. During the rest of the year, the Craster has regular live entertainment and Wednesday quiz nights and shows all major sporting events.

If you are a keen walker, as well as a wildlife lover, then the four-mile coastal walk from Beadnell to Low Newton By Sea is recommended. The National Trust owns the Newton Pool Nature Reserve with a number of hides where you can spot a variety of waders and waterfowl and at Newton Haven, you may also see the odd seal or two.

Last Word

If you love the seaside but are none too keen on the hordes of visitors that come with most coastal resorts during summer, then Beadnell is where you should be headed. The sheer vastness of its two-mile stretch of sand and its buzzing little harbour where colourful boats continually set sail from the moorings is a haven, as well as being where it all happens.

Primrose Cottage is cosy enough for two and there is even space for a toddler and two four-legged tykes. It has everything you need to guarantee that your break is going to be a home-from-home where you can cook up a freshly made meal for two in the galley kitchen or take a leisurely five-minute walk to the pub or fish and chip shops. If you are celebrating a special occasion, then the Beadnell Towers Hotel right beside the Craster Arms offers fine dining, emphasising local produce and catches of the day.

To breathe in the salty sea air, feel fine golden sand between your toes and go to sleep hearing the sound of the ocean, a holiday in Beadnell has to be on your bucket-and-spade list.
