Bamburgh, Beach Walking and Beer

As you may know any spare time I get I'm off exploring the beautiful coastline of Northumberland. This trip took me up to Bamburgh a place where I spent many a day of my childhood. I haven't been in years and revisiting took me right back, reminiscing about sandcastles, picnics and running in the sand dunes. Happy days! 

After a leisurely stroll along the beach imaging what life would be like living in the scenic Bamburgh Castle I headed further down the coast stopping along the way to admire the views, wishing I lived by the sea.

Above is The Ship Inn in Low Newton by the Sea. This truely has to be one of my favourite places in the world and stole my heart upon my first visit many years ago. It's a fantastic little pub set in the most striking of settings.  It has it own brewery and I am quite partial to an ale so I did partake in a taste of the local tipple. If you get a chance visit Northumberland Newton by the Sea it a must to visit. 



  1. I am DESPERATE to go Bamburgh but we don't have a car so it's a little tricky to get to from Gateshead! Having only relocated to the North East a year or so ago everyone is constantly asking me if I've been to Bamburgh yet ... drives me mad!

    I'm hoping, fingers crossed, that we have a staycation this year and hire a car - then we can spend our week doing day trips and I can finally get myself out to some of these beautiful places I'm dying to see!
