Northumberland has an impressive number of castles, with more than any other county in the UK, many are visible from the Northumberland coastline. The impressive ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle can be reached on foot from the fishing village of Craster and it can also be seen from the nearby beaches of Embleton and Beadnell. The magnificent Bamburgh Castle stands proud overlooking the pretty village of Bamburgh and provides a dramatic backdrop to the beaches of Seahouses and Bamburgh. Lindisfarne Castle on Holy Island can be seen from miles around and is well worth a visit. Staying at St. Coombs Farmhouse on the island, gives you the opportunity to explore more of this historic island by day and enjoy the dark skies at night. The island has lots to see and places to visit with a nature reserve, abbey, a winery (where you can sample the locally produced Lindisfarne Mead) or try a cup of Pilgrims Coffee from the local coffee house and roastery. There are a couple of friendly local pub restaurants and some great cafes to try too. From the beaches surrounding the island, try seal spotting, always a lovely sight to see!.
There are many activities you can enjoy on your holiday at the Northumberland coast both on land and in the sea. In the sea, enjoy a range of watersports such as kayaking, windsurfing, paddle boarding and sailing. By the sea, simply relax on the beach with a picnic, try rock pooling, enjoy a refreshing walk or cycle ride along the coastal path, play a round of golf on one of the many Northumberland coastal courses, be eagle eyed with a spot of bird watching or experience the thrill of horse-riding along the shoreline before sampling some seafood delights in one of the many fantastic restaurants, or take home your catch of the day and cook up a tasty treat back at your holiday cottage.
