Breathtaking stretch of silver sands surrounded by wildlife-rich dunes
The sandy beach is backed by dunes where a variety of flowers bloom: bluebells, cowslips, burnet roses and, to give it its common name, bloody cranesbill, amongst others.
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.
Volunteering on the Northumberland Coast
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
