Things To Do in Beadnell

You have the advantage of the beach almost on the doorstep and you won’t need an itinerary to get the most out of the glorious stretch of golden sand. For bay at Beadnell stretches for two miles towards Seahouses. Although regular boat trips to the Farne Islands regularly leave from the harbour at Seahouses, the best time to see them in all their glory is in Spring when a staggering 84,000 birds such as puffins, terns, kittiwakes and razorbills return to nest. If you are looking to do something different, hire a wet suit and join small parties to go on a grey seal snorkelling safari. This will bring you up close to the grey seals that occupy the islands and you might even see a basking whale and a school of playful bottlenose dolphins.

At Seahouses, the kids won’t be able to resist The Bunkers’ 18-hole Crazy Golf with its views out to sea as far as Bamburgh Castle and the course is suitable for all weather conditions. A family ticket only costs £10 for the day and provides access to the soft play area too. Seahouses is only 1.8 miles from Beadnell, a four-minute drive, and if you don’t have freshly caught fish and chips at The Bunkers’ new 19-Hole Restaurant, Lewis’s is a popular choice. This family-run fish restaurant is renowned not only for its breaded cod and battered haddock and the family go out daily in the season to catch lobsters and crabs.

Back at base, the Craster Arms will almost feature highly during your stay at Sandy Cove. On chilly nights there is a roaring fire in the inglenook and during the warmer months, the beer garden has plenty of space for the younger ones and your pet while you savour a Tyneside Blonde ale from Hadrian Border Brewery.

Last Word

There is so much to see and do along this part of Northumberland’s Heritage Coast. Be prepared to do a fair share of walking if you want to discover its delights. If you need to stock up on provisions, a small village store includes a post office, but just a 20-minute drive will find you in Alnwick, which has a few major supermarkets, independent butchers, and bakers. While you are there, it will be hard to resist a visit to the glorious Alnwick Castle and Gardens. Made famous by the Harry Potter movies, this coastal gem offers broomstick riding lessons and a snack or main meal in its Treehouse Restaurant will make for a novel treat.

Sandy Cove is spacious enough for six with not only king-sized and double bedrooms but two singles, ideal for the younger ones who will each have their own room. The downstairs is spacious, so there will be no getting under each other’s feet and the west-facing garden is perfect for meals outdoors.

This is an exceptional piece of coastline that has magical touches on every turn, from unsurpassed sunsets to a beach that seems to go on forever; you are going to be in everyone’s good books if you decide to spend a holiday in Beadnell.
