Newton By The Sea Cottages
Please find below a selection of self catering holiday cottages in Newton By The Sea, Northumberland.
Welcome to a gem on Northumberland's Heritage Coast, surrounded by soft sands, dunes rich in wildlife and rocky headlands. Owned almost exclusively by the National Trust, whitewashed cottages and an historic pub frame the village green. Fans of 'Oz and James Drink to Britain' may recognise The Ship Inn, offering sensational food and ales from its micro brewery. If you're staying in a Newton-by-the-Sea cottage, you're bound to visit more than once!
The pub is also the start of two great coastal walks. Turn left, cross the headland to Beadnell Bay, then on to Seahouses and Bamburgh Castle. Or turn right to Craster, passing the extraordinary ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle along the way.
Sheltered by an off-shore reef, the bay at Newton is ideal for dinghy sailing, sea-kayaking and windsurfing; while surfing, kite surfing, diving and snorkelling can be enjoyed locally at Embleton and Beadnell Bays. Other sports include golf at Dunstanburgh Castle Golf Course and horse riding at Embleton Bay.
Spot all kinds of seabirds, shorebirds and wildfowl at the Newton Pool Bird Reserve, a freshwater lagoon nature reserve close to the shore, with spectacular breeding activity during May and June.
Newton is a fabulous spot to bring children, with sandy beaches great for paddling, rock pooling and sandcastle building. Catch your supper and fish from the rocks. Take a moonlit stroll along the beach and listen out for seals. In summer, look out for family events and wildlife walks.
Then round off your day with a comfortable night's sleep in your Newton-by-the-Sea cottage, ready for tomorrow's adventure.
