Beautiful Beaches

We are very lucky to have many beautiful beaches on our doorstep. Here are some of our favourite but there are many others you can visit.

Coldingham Bay

20 minute drive from us

Coldingham Bay is a sheltered sandy beach on the Berwickshire shore, a mile from Coldingham Village.   The Bay has attracted visitors for over a century due to its crystal clear waters, offering excellent opportunities for rock pooling, kayaking and surfing.   The Bay is situated on the Berwickshire Coastal path and would definitely recommend walking North to visit the little village of St Abbs, which most recently was used to film Harry Styles music video and the Avengers film Endgame.

Facilities at the Bay include a Free Car Park, Beach Cafe, and Public Toilets.

Cocklawburn Beach

20 minute drive from us

Cocklawburn is located just a few miles south of Berwick upon Tweed.  Lying within the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this beach is perfect for long swept walks.  Both the Northumberland Coast Path and National Cycle Route pass nearby.  This beach is a great spot to come for bird-watching or just to look in the rock pools. 

There are two small parking areas (one where an ice cream van usually parks) and also options to park in small lay-by's.

Cheswick Sands

25 minute drive from us

One of the biggest beaches on the Northumberland Coast, Cheswick Sands is a vast space of sand, black basalt rock pools and dunes stretching as far as the eye can see.   Few beaches offer panoramic views such as this.  On a clear day you can see past Berwick upon Tweed to the Scottish Border and take in views of Holy Island to the South.  A fantastic dog friendly beach and a firm favourite with our Labrador Ruby. 

There is a small free car park.

Bamburgh Beach

30 minute drive from us

Overlooked by Bamburgh Castle, this beautiful stretch of coastline offers clear seas and huge sands that stretch to Seahouses, three miles away.  On a clear day you can see out to Lindisfarne and the Farne Islands.   There is plenty of space for everyone to spread out - from families to dog walkers and even horse riders.  Bamburgh was also voted one of the North East's top surf spots.  You may recognise it from featuring on an episode of Vera.

There are a number of pay and display car parks which you can use. Although in the winter they tend to be free.
