The long Northumberland Coast has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – mile upon mile of almost deserted sands, traditional seaside towns, historic castles, and rolling surf…
This holiday is based at Bamburgh, once home to heroine Grace Darling, and overlooked by magnificent 11th century Bamburgh Castle. Our walks will take us along the coast – to Seahouses with its harbour, lifeboat station, and many small cafes; and to Budle Bay returning over the dunes behind Budle Point. On one day we’ll take the bus to Embleton and head for Craster, famous for its kippers, walking back past the ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle. We will also walk on Holy Island (Lindisfarne), crossing the causeway at low tide and being sure to return before the tide rises! We’ll be based at Sunningdale Hotel in Bamburgh – a friendly, family-owned hotel with a good number of ensuite single rooms available. Berwick-upon-Tweed is the nearest station, then bus to Bamburgh.
Price includes: 5 nights full board in ensuite twin rooms; transport to walks. Single rooms may be available – supplement from £10.00 per night – book early
