Embleton Bay is a magnificent stretch of sand and dunes between Low Newton and the majestic ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle, perfect for a easy wander. If you'd rather relax and enjoy the scenery, then when not bring your rug and lie on the lower slopes of the dunes.

Embleton and Newton Links are part of our Northumberland Coast group. You can read about some of the work we get up to here in our Coast Blog, which is added to by staff and volunteers.

Little Terns at the Long Nanny

Just north of Newton by the Sea is the Long Nanny site where little terns come to breed. Our rangers watch over them day and night in shifts and are on hand to tell you all about our work here.

Volunteers help us with many different parts of our work

We rely heavily on support from our volunteer helpers all across our Northumberland Coast places, not least Embleton and Newton. Our Wednesday volunteer group carry out vital tasks at all our places on the coast including Lindisfarne and the Farne Islands, but there are also other opportunities available on different days. If you are interested in getting involved, drop us an email or call 01665 576874
