For a wider range of shopping there is a Londis and Co-op located in Seahouses only three miles away, Morrisons and Sainsburys in Alnwick 10 miles away and a Tesco in Berwick 15 miles away.

If you are looking for local artisan food then why not have it delivered to your door including local Craster kippers, local cheeses and Lindisfarne mead. Eating out? Then you don’t even have to leave the village to sample delicious food and drink served at the Beadnell Towers Hotel and also at the traditional Craster Arms dating back to the 15th Century with a beer garden and grassed area for the kids.

Working off the delicious local food need not take much imagination as stretching from the harbour is the magnificent long sweeping golden beach of Beadnell Bay which at the end sits the imposing silhouette of the ruined Dunstanburgh Castle. Due to its sheltered location Beadnell Bay is a mecca for some of the best water sports in the country. The village is home to its very own sailing club which has been established in the village for over 40 years.

A little further afield approximately three miles off this stretch of coastline are the Farne Islands, a SCUBA diving paradise and naturalists heaven. These islands are the most famous seabird sanctuary in the British Isles and they also have a large colony of Atlantic or Grey Seals as well as hosting a diverse cross section of marine life and coastal species.
