Blow away the cobwebs along the Northumberland coast

Creswell, Northumberland

Get your walking boots on, pack a picnic and enjoy fresh air, stunning views and beautiful wildlife along the Northumberland Coast Path.

Spend a cheap UK break discovering castles, golden beaches, wildlife and history whilst exploring the Northumberland Coast Path.

The 103km (64 mile) path stretches from Creswell in the south to Berwick-upon-Tweed in the north through the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The route follows footpaths, bridleways, beaches, tracks and minor roads, with plenty of free museums and affordable attractions along the way.

If you fancy getting away from it all to a remote area, head north of Bamburgh Castle and past Stag Rock to a wild coastline, the sea on one side, sand dunes on the other and Lindisfarne Castle on the horizon. 

For a gentler walk, the path from Craster to Dunstanburgh is a perfect choice, passing the dramatic fortress ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle stood on a remote headland.
