Craster to Sugar Sands

Northumberland Walks

The walk starts at a play area at the far end of Craster village and takes you alongside the road before turning inland and along the cliff edge. For a short period of time, the path also runs parallel to the road so if you've a dog with you, take care not to let it run out into the traffic.

The path then opens out to the right hand side to open farmland and before long a prettily located ‘bathhouse’ can be seen adjacent to some fabulous sandstone rocks on a small beach.

The path then leads to a bridge over a lovely stream for dog-dipping and beside a small, sandy beach with rocky outcrops and pools to paddle in. Continue south and upwards along a gravel track and towards Sugar Sands which can be reached by climbing down the hillside to the lovely beach below.

On the return journey to Craster, Dunstanborough can be seen in the distance.

All in all a pretty easy walk of about 5 miles round trip and 1½ hours each way
