Low Newton Square
An 18th-century fishing hamlet with cream-washed cottages and an historic pub set around a pretty village green
Low Newton by the sea has a natural rock harbour and golden beach sheltered from the tides by an offshore reef. An excellent spot for marine wildlife and feeding shorebirds.
Freshawater lagoon nature reserve just 87 yards (80 metres) from the shore. Newton Pool attracts a variety of wildlife to its scrub woodland, fen and open water habitats. Follow the path behind the village square to visit the bird hides.
With the backdrop of Dunstanburgh Castle, this fine sandy beach is one of the most spectacular in England. It's popular for paddling and gives some good surf conditions.
