The coastline of North Northumberland is well known for it's sandy beaches and superb scenery along with its picturesque villages overlooked by magnificent castles. The historic village of Beadnell lies just a few miles east of the main A1 that links Edinburgh with Newcastle-upon-Tyne, but despite this, it remains off the beaten track and as a result has not been spoilt by over-development.

The harbour walls of Beadnell were built in the 1790's where the lime kilns of that date still remain. Stretching from the harbour is the long and sweeping Beadnell bay which ends towards the ruined Dunstanburgh Castle in the distance. This sheltered bay makes an ideal location for some of the best sailing and wind surfing on the Northumberland coast. The village provides the usual small shops and good eating houses typical of a northumberland fishing village.

This combination of charm and accessibility makes Beadnell one of the most popular holiday villages on the north east coast.
Just off this stretch of coastline, lie the Farne Islands. Well known by SCUBA divers and naturalists alike, these islands are host to a diverse cross section of marine life and coastal species. Boat trips to the Farnes can be arranged from Seahouses, 2 miles north of Beadnell.

The purpose of this website is to give people interested in visiting the north east a taste of what you might find. The buttons on this screen will help anyone planning a break in Beadnell make the most of their stay, whether they want an action packed adventure or a secluded escape from it all.
