Why stay here ...

Situated only a stones throw from the golden sandy beach of Newton by the Sea on Northumberland's picturesque coastline, Link House Farm, is the perfect seaside base from which to explore this wonderfully varied county. The beach is wide and gently sloping making it ideal for the whole family to kick off their shoes and enjoy a paddle in the clean, blue waters.

Link House Farm is a truly special place, which is why many of our guests return year after year.

Northumberland is England's most northern county and one of its least populated. Sharing a northern boundary with the Scottish Borders, this was a region which was not always as peaceful as it is today. Evidence of this once bloody past is all around us in the shape of multitudes of castles and fortified houses, many of which are open to the public.

Link House Farm is centrally located to make visiting these fascinating places a simple matter. Within an easy half-hour car journey there are castles at Bamburgh, Dunstanburgh, Warkworth, Lindisfarne and Alnwick (made famous recently as one of the main locations of the Harry Potter movies).

Other historic places of interest include Cragside House at Rothbury (approximately 45 minutes) which was the first house in the world to be lit by electricity, Lindisfarne Priory (approximately 30 minutes) the birthplace of the Lindisfarne Gospels and the site the Viking raiders landed and not forgetting the World Heritage Site of Hadrian's Wall (approximately 1.5 hours) which was built to keep the Barbarians out of the rest of the Roman Empire.

For those with sporty inclinations, Northumberland has much to offer. Being situated on the seaside, for those who aren't afraid of getting wet there is much to entertain on out very doorstep! Surfing & kite surfing, kayaking and windsurfing, snorkeling and skuba diving to name but a few. There are a multitude of centres and tuition available if required - please check out our Links section for more information or don't hesitate to contact us.

For the golfers, there are a good selection of courses in the immediate area including Dunstanburgh, Bamburgh and Seahouses. Please check availability and open days on the clubs websites.

Walkers and cyclists have the opportunity to explore a huge variety of trails and landscapes. From spectacular cliff-top walks overlooking the north sea to strolls in the Northumberland National Park and the wide open skies of the Cheviot Hills where wildlife such as otters, black grouse, peregrine falcons and curlew can often be spotted.

Northumberland boasts a myriad of villages and market towns each with their own unique flavour and character such as Craster, home to the famous kipper and Berwick upon Tweed with it's connections to the artist L S Lowry, magnificent architecture and Elizabethan town walls, it is well worth a trip.

Link House Farm is also located almost in equal distance between the bustling cities of Newcastle upon Tyne and Edinburgh giving ample opportunities for the serious shopper, art lover or culture vulture!

Perfect

We have visited most of the beaches along the Northumberland coast but Beadnell Bay is the best. So peaceful and deserted ( even though it was very cold - but sunny ). Contrary to a previous review, it is not a particularly long walk from the site to the beach - about 10 minutes to the edge of the dunes and another few minutes to the beach. And what a beach - well worth the £20 per night site fee that one reviewer moaned about. The pitches are well laid out with plenty of space between them.

Excellent site. Very easy short walk to a lovely beach. Very helpful owner. Only drawback is the length of single track road to reach the site - we were lucky that no-one came in the opposite direction, as this would have been awkward.

A lovely location . Stunning sky line + Local Pub

We booked one day at this new CL and must have been lucky because once we arrived all five pitches were occupied . The owners are very nice people and Newton by the Sea / Low Newton is quite easy to find especially easy in a campervan. The owner came round for the fee and we had a nice walk to the beach following the signs the site. Each pitch has hard gravel and a hook point and also a night light at each pitch. To approach the CL find The Joiners Arms and take a left fork . Heres where you need to be careful if towing because the lane narrows to single track for about 400 yards . Best to get the passenger to walk ahead and signal when its clear because passing places are ok for camper van but might be difficult with a caravan . Once through though its well worth the journey. At night its very quiet on your specious open pitch . Finally the sun going down is just a spectacular show for 360 degrees . Stunning landscape views seem to go for miles. We Live on the coast at sunderland and have never seen such a stunning sunset . The beach is also fabulous. A real find this place... Pitch fees are worth every penny and we will be back some time soon.

Like ducks? This ones for you!

This CL can be tricky to find depending on your sat nav. We used directions provided by the owners and no issues. The approach lanes are in part single track to be wary if you have a large unit. Pass through the farm and holiday cottages to the CL at the end. Very quiet with good access to the sea. A great selection of farm livestock on the loose adds some fun. It may be a bit exposed in windy weather as very flat area. Will uses again.

so close to the sea!

Booked for August onto this rather pricey new CL but on arrival could see why they charge a premium. The site is within a stone's throw of the Newton dune system at Beadnell Bay, and a very short 500 metre walk to the sandy beach entrance (not a mile as another reviewer states). A new site, so the screen hedges and trees have not yet grown up. The site is at the end of the farm track and past the holiday lets. Basic but what do you expect from a CL?! Price is similar to some in the National Parks in prime locations. Anyone with childen will be pleased that the holiday let's play area is accessible and lovers of peace and quite will delight in the fact that the play area is out of sight and earshot too. A great pub in the village for food and nice walks from the site up and down the coast. We would love to return in the winter as this would be a spectacular wild and windy place to camp. The beach at Beadnell Bay is gently sloping and made of fantastic golden sand great for bathing and sand castle building. Redshanks, Curlew, Green Fritillary and Wall butterflies will keep the nature lovers happy.
