Newton-by-the-Sea Holiday Cottages

Newton-by-the-Sea comprises of two small villages High Newton and Low Newton.

High Newton is half a mile inland and has a great village pub and restaurant – The Joiners Arms.

Low Newton is closer to the sea and is perhaps best known for the village ‘square’ that faces the sweeping bay. This is the heart of the old village where beautiful 19th century cream-washed cottages (formerly built for the fishermen) and a traditional pub restaurant (with its own microbrewery!) – The Ship Inn, surround the large village green.

Low Newton has one road in and out and can’t be missed as you get fantastic views at the top of the road of Newton Bay before you descend to the village square. (Public parking is only available in the car park at the top of the hill).

There are some beautiful coastal walks that can be enjoyed from Low Newton, walk as little or as far as you like taking in the beautiful coastline of Beadnell, Seahouses and Bamburgh or head south and pass through the seaside villages of Embelton and Craster stopping off to explore the magnificent Dunstanburgh Castle along the way.

Newton-by-the-Sea is a popular Northumberland holiday destination all year round due to the lovely sandy beach and its fantastic views across Embleton Bay to Dunstanburgh Castle. Popular with birdwatchers and water sport enthusiasts. The area is protected by The National Trust that owns the majority of the village and the surrounding land.

There is a freshwater nature reserve, Newton Pool, which is only 80 metres from the shore and offers great opportunities to observe the local wildlife and the bird hides offer great bird watching opportunities where you can spot all sorts of seabirds and shorebirds.

Newton-by-the Sea is a great location for all the family, including the dog with a beautiful sandy beach and plenty of paddling opportunities and rock pools to explore. This sheltered bay is also ideal for sea kayaking, sailing and windsurfing.
