Visit Beadnell

Beadnell is a small village south of Bamburgh and Seahouses in the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Within Beadnell itself it is the harbour and the historic limekilns that dominate the harbour (now owned by the National Trust and partly shown on the right in the photo above) that will catch your attention. A few fishing boats and a variety of pleasure craft co-exist in the small harbour.

Just east of the harbour in Beadnell you can see the ruins of a 13th century chapel, while within Beadnell note the Craster Arms, which incorporates a 16th century watchtower.

There is a long sandy beach, classified as a 'blue flag' beach that stretches along Beadnell Bay to the south of the village, and used for many different watersports - apparently the surfing conditions are often very good (I'm not a surfer so can't comment myself...). The beach is also home to large colonies of Little Tern and Arctic Tern birds.

Other outdoor activities, especially walking and cycling, are also popular using Beadnell as a base.
