Beaches in Northumberland

Think Northumberland, think mile upon mile of sun-dappled moorland, craggy peaks and chocolate box villages.

It's wild and woolly yet reassuringly homely - the perfect destination for a fun-filled camping holiday. And that's even before we've talked beaches. Tucked away in the far northeast corner of England, skirting the Scottish borders and facing boldly out over the North Sea, the Northumberland Coast is simply spectacular.

The Camping and Caravanning Club has two Northumberland campsites within easy reach of some of the county's best beaches. We'll tell you a little more about them, and how to book your Northumberland beach camping holiday, below.

Beaches near Beadnell Bay Club Campsite, NorthumberlandBamburgh, Northumberland

Just a hop, skip and a jump away from our campsite of the same name, Beadnell Bay is a pretty horseshoe-shaped beach with golden sands and wispy sand dunes. It's part of Northumberland's famous Heritage Coastline and is a great spot for families, with a huge sweeping bay, sheltered spots by the dunes and protected waters. Beadnell is home to a tiny harbour and sports a smattering of handy amenities - including toilets, showers and a cafe.

Head a mile or two further north and you'll reach Seahouses North Beach, another lovely stretch of sand backed by grassy dunes and offering a quiet, spacious area for sandcastles, birdwatching, or even a spot of beach cricket. The village of Seahouses itself is historic and charming with shops and cafes - the perfect pitstop. Or head another few miles further north and you'll find a great beach at Bamburgh Castle (pictured), complete with cracking views out towards the Farne Islands.
