Cocklawburn Beach

Cocklawburn Beach - Northumberland
© Andrew Curtis and licensed for reuse under this Licence

This stunning, sand and rock, beach, backed by grassy dunes, lies on the North Sea coast, between Berwick and the Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve. 

The rural beach is within the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, an area popular with walkers.  Both the Northumberland Coast Path and the National Cycle Route pass nearby.

In early summer, beautiful wild flowers can be seen along the paths behind the dunes. 

This beach is a great spot to come for long, windswept walks, to admire the big, open sky and beautiful seascapes.  On clear days it is often possible to see Holy Island and Bamburgh Castle to the south of the beach.

As well as walkers, and families who come to enjoy the sand and rockpools exposed at low tide, this beach is also used by birdwatchers, surfers and body boarders.

The loose cows roaming around on this beach and dunes are very dangerous and intimidating indeed. We are amazed that the council permits it. They also eat the precious wild flowers.

Beach was lovely now is a disgrace

Local farmer lets cows out daily to roam all over beach and dunes it’s a disgrace . And should not be allowed . There was a young mother and child being chased by a cow . She was terrified. But nothing done about it

Fabulous beach. Cows loose grazing during winter months so dog walkers beware!
Limited parking, best seen when tide low.

What did we get wrong?
