Best campsites for the Northumberland Coast AONB

Here is our pick of the Alan Rogers Assessors, expert-recommended campsites for the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

This rugged, windswept coast is renowned for its wildlife and rich historical connections. Castles at Bamburgh and Dunstanburgh are particularly noteworthy. The AONB lies in a rural area with a population of 12,500 and runs from Berwick-upon-Tweed to Amble, a mix of long stretches of sand backed with rolling dunes. Holy Island, or Lindisfarne, is an obvious highlight, with its fast-submerged causeway and tidal pools that constantly refresh aquatic ecosystems with each high tide. The dunes and marshy mudflats here are home to a wonderful variety of birdlife. There are also several offshore islands and the rocky Farne Islands.

Northumberland Coast AONB traditionally relies on the agricultural activities of the lush farmlands where dairy, arable and livestock feature prominently, as well as fishing. This last is less important than it once was; little fishing ports like Seahouses and Alnmouth still operate, but tourism is now an important contributor to the local economy.
