Charming and accessible, this is one of the most popular holiday villages on the Heritage coastline.

The walls of Beadnell Harbour were built in the 1790s and the old lime kilns still stand although they are now owned by the National Trust. The oldest building in the village, the sixteenth century Pele still remains as a part of the very popular public house The Craster Arms, located in the heart of the village. This friendly and welcoming pub has a beer garden and grassed area outside, perfect for enjoying the sunshine while the children play safely. The village also boasts another impressive public house, The Beadnell Towers Hotel, the food here is second to none and can be enjoyed both in the pub and the restaurant.
