Low Newton and Beadnell is one of the best beach walks in Northumberland. Low Newton-by-the-Sea is a gorgeous little old traditional fishing village. It’s a great starting point for a walk up the coast and the coast here is stunning. Beadnell Bay is amazing and probably very underrated. So much so that we needed to have a walk here.

We’ve been walking in the Rothbury area for many years. It is beautiful and, even very close to Rothbury, there are plenty of very varied routes. So, for this one, we tried to take the best of all the routes, but avoiding the most challenging paths.

I think we achieved that, and the weather just added to the joy of the walk. Everything was perfect.

Craster and Howick – 4 July 2020

CrasterHowick - CrasterHowick-04072020M-23 Craster and Howick

The Craster and Howick walk is stunning. It has so many different parts to it. It starts off with a little nature reserve and then crosses fields, some with animals in. Eventually it returns to the coast, with smells of the sea and the sound of seabirds.
