Overlooked by Bamburgh Castle, this beautiful stretch of wild 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.

If a pristine white sandy beach set beneath a properly perfect twelfth century castle isn’t enough, there are also lovely views of the Farne Islands, the pretty Bamburgh village, a three-mile walk at low tide from the lighthouse at Harkness Rocks to Seahouses, and boat trips from there to the Farnes, where seals and seabirds make the most of the remoteness and serenity. Nearby, Ross Back Sands offers three more serene miles of unspoiled dunes and beach – with a one-mile walk from the nearest car parking, you’re likely to have it all to yourself.
