If you’re looking for a nice easy coastal walk in Northumberland with stunning views I would thoroughly recommend the walk from Craster to Dunstanburgh Castle.
You can park in the pay and display which is on the right as you enter the village and walk down towards the harbour. When you get to the harbour it’s clear to see which way to go as the impressive ruin of Dunstanburgh Castle sits high on the headland and can be seen from miles around.
The walk to the castle is 1.3 miles and a word of warning, there are no loos on site!
And quite a few locals so make sure to keep your dog on a lead.
Dunstanburgh Castle is managed by English Heritage and is free for National Trust members. If you don’t have a membership and want to venture in entry is £5.20 per person with gift aid. The ruins are open from 10am – 6pm during the summer season but having visited before we decided the walk itself was enough for us.
We refuelled at The Shoreline Cafe in the centre of Craster with an open prawn sandwich on sourbread and a tuna and red onion panini. Both were delicious and much cheaper than a pub lunch, plus you can take your four legged friend inside with you!
