Travel Tips

There is no space to park in the actual village so purchase a ticket for the council car park on the right as you approach the village.

You can take your dog into the “bar” of the pub and in the summer there is a garden.

You can walk beyond the ruins of Dunstanburgh and you will end up at Low Newton by the Sea. Which has a stunning beach and a good pub “The Ship” (which has a micro brewery). Here you can get some fresh crab sandwiches.
