Whether you’re already thinking about visiting Northumberland itself or just exploring your options, we’d like to show you three areas you should definitely consider paying a visit to…
1) Beadnell — Beaches, Wild Life and Water Sports
Beadnell is a small coastal community whose miles of open, empty golden stands and stunning sand dunes attract visitors from around the country. Despite the popularity of the bay for a whole host of water-based leisure pursuits, from sailing to windsurfing to kayaking, as elsewhere along the Northumberland coast, the visitor can often find himself alone on vast stretches of unspoilt, windswept sands.
With miles of rambling coastal paths, Beadnell is an ideal destination for those who want to explore and take in the magnificent coastal views on offer. A wide variety of bird life, including the nesting sea birds common in the area, can also be seen along the shore and in the sand dunes.
Has Beadnell with its array of activities and natural beauty captured your interest? If so then browse our Beadnell cottages page, where you’ll find a host of excellent holiday cottages.
2) Embleton — Beauty, History and Golf
On Northumberland’s Heritage Coast, picturesque Embleton is an attractive village with a well-maintained green and village shop. The main attraction is beautiful Embleton Bay, located about half a mile from the village centre. A vast sweep of fine sandy beach backed by high dunes, there are wonderful views down the coast to nearby Dunstanburgh castle, which rises majestically at the southerly tip of the bay.
To help visitors explore easily the ‘Embleton Heritage Trails Project’ was developed and launched in 2006. The project created a series of trails and coastal routes, which can be leisurely followed by those visitors who want to truly discover this excellent holiday destination. As an additional bonus for those holiday makers who enjoy a good game of golf, there’s Dunstanburgh Castle Golf Club which is Embleton’s very own 18-hole golf course!
If you’re eager to visit this excellent location, then we have a fine selection of Embleton cottages available.
3) Seahouses — Fish & Chips, Surfing and Farne Islands
The colourful fishing village of Seahouses lies on a stretch of Northumberland coast which is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. A series of three short walking tours with informative panels have been created to enable the visitor to discover the area, together with an accompanying quiz for children, available from the Seahouses tourist office. Like many coastal villages in Northumberland Seahouses has delicious fresh Cod and Chips, it’s easy to see why it’s a traditional British favourite!
It’s proximity to many of Northumberland’s top visitor attractions makes Seahouses an ideal place for a Northumberland cottage holiday. The village also offers many water sports and activities, whilst also providing visitors with access to the Farne Islands, which in themselves are a delight and rich in wildlife. Various boat trips leave the harbour each day so it’s an excursion you can easily include into your holiday plan.
