We had heard about this part of country over the last few years and finally made it this time!
The CCC campsite at Beadnell Bay is very easy to access with a well organised entrance system, which looks like they get extremely busy. We received a very friendly welcome and were helped to find a pitch, bearing in mind the strong winds whipping across the site.
The beach is literally a two minute walk across the road so we headed off there within an hour of our arrival to soak up the views.
Seahouses is just under two miles from the site and you can walk along the beach all the way (cutting through the pretty golf course along the way). From there you can catch a boat to and around The Farne Islands to see the puffins and other sea birds. It is rather a long trip though and I (Angela) am definitely not a water baby so we gave it a miss this time.
It is quite a small place to visit but worth it, though the next day we walked the five miles into Bamburgh Castle. The walk was absolutely beautiful, the sun was shining and the beach is stunning.
When you get near to the castle you get to see glimpses of it through and above the sand dunes. Whilst walking past the sand dunes we spotted lots of Sand martins darting in and out of their nest holes. It cost just under £11 each to enter but it was worth it.
It is such a wonderful, beautiful area that we will definitely come back to experience it again. This place was the highlight of our trip away.
