Picture Perfect Beaches in Northumberland

Northumberland is full of incredible coastline, and no matter which area you visit, you won’t be disappointed. From dramatic castle backdrops to long stretches of golden sands, here at Coquet Cottages we’ve put together a list of picture-perfect beaches.

Bamburgh Beach

As one of Northumberland’s most famous beaches, it’s easy to see what really makes Bamburgh stand out. With pristine sand backed by sand dunes and the breathtaking Bamburgh Castle dominating the skyline beyond the dunes, Bamburgh Beach is the perfect place for coastal walks.
