Newton Retreat is perfectly located as a base to explore the dramatic coastline for which Northumberland is famous and can be easily accessed by foot or bike. From the village of Embleton, you can enjoy a leisurely stroll or cycle to Craster, a delightful coastal village famous as the home of kippers, but also the perfect place to enjoy wildlife spotting in the Arnold Memorial Nature Reserve, where more unusual species visit including red-breasted flycatchers and icterine. Also within easy reach is Dunstanburgh Castle whose large, dramatic ruins dominate the coastline, a lingering testament to the nation’s more violent past. A coastal walk southwards will also reveal another relic of Northumberland’s history, the hidden cove of Rumbling Ken, once famous as the haunt of whisky smugglers, but now a delightful, secret beach that is ideal for a leisurely afternoon relaxing and playing with the children. Alternatively, the whole family will adore the landscaped gardens of Howick Hall which is only a short journey away, while Alnwick Castle and Gardens and Dunstanburgh Links Golf Course are also enjoyable day trips that are bound to leave an imprint on your memory of your relaxing stay at Newton Retreat.
