Find somewhere to stay on your journey

During your journey along our wonderful coastline and Area of Natural Beauty, you may want to stop and take a rest at one of the many places that supply a bed and place to rest your head and feet for the day. Here are a list of just a few of the many wonderful places that you would come across along the length of the walk.

Where should I stay?

There are plenty of accommodation options on the Northumberland Coast but please remember that not all places will take single-night stays. During the summer months, the coast is very popular with tourists so be sure to book your accommodation well in advance.

We have listed Welcome Port accommodation businesses that are part of our Passport scheme below.

If you can’t find what you are looking for here there are two other ways to easily find accommodation:


Berwick Tourist Information Centre offer a book-a-bed-ahead scheme for the path, you can call them on +44 01670 622 155

Rather than staying at a different place each night, there is an option to stay in one or two locations along the route and using the bus services to travel to and from your start and end points each day. If you decide on a single location, we would recommend Alnwick or Alnmouth as they are both well served by buses heading north and south along the coast. Warkworth and Longhoughton would also work.


Wild camping is not allowed in England, so please do not pitch your tent unless you have sought the permission of the landowner.

There are no official campsites on or near the trail south of Craster (there is a campsite at Warkworth but it is three miles off-route). You should consider this before deciding to camp.

Alnmouth Golf Club

Alnmouth Golf Club, Foxton Hall overlooks the splendours of both Foxton and Alnmouth Bay on the Northumberland coastline in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. It is widely regarded as one of the finest golf courses in the North East of England. 

Visitors are always given a warm Northumbrian welcome at Alnmouth where we have a wonderful golf course, first class practice facilities and a beautiful Clubhouse. A special feature of "Foxton" - as we are generally known - is our 26-bed Dormy House on the first floor of the clubhouse offering hotel accommodation at Visit England 3 Star rating, to groups of visiting golfers in very comfortable twin or single rooms with en suite facilities. We offer a full range of "Stay and Play" golf breaks for groups, couples or singles with golf here at Foxton or a choice of the best golf courses in Northumberland.
