The local area guide to living in Beadnell

Explore along the east coast of Northumberland and you will find, nestled away in a horseshoe-shaped bay, the tiny coastal village of Beadnell. Situated four miles south-east of Bamburgh, this sleepy seaside town boasts golden sands, an impressive local history and some of the best watersports facilities in the county. Residents can enjoy easy access to kitesurfing, kayaking, wakeboarding and much, much more!

Primarily a tourist base, Beadnell lies within the North Northumberland Heritage Coast and the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The beach of Beadnell Bay stretches two miles to the south and is home to the largest mainland colony of Arctic tern in the United Kingdom. In 2005, the beach was presented with the Blue Flag award.

The village itself consists primarily of holiday homes, but the few permanent residents are friendly and hospitable. Many make their living through small-scale fishing, and Beadnell’s west-facing harbour is one of the last bastions of traditional coble fishing, trawling for wild salmon and sea trout.

For a small town, Beadnell certainly has a vibrant history. Its parish church, the Anglican Church of St. Ebba, dates from the mid-eighteenth century; a sixteenth-century pele tower remains part of The Craster Arms, the local public house, and the harbour is bordered by historic limekilns, dating from 1747 and now owned by the National Trust. Like the pele tower, the limekilns have since been repurposed, and were once used for curing herring.

Information about the local residents

Beadnell’s population remains steady, with a gradual but inconsequential rise over time and periodic seasonal fluctuations. At the time of the 2001 census, there were 528 residents in 268 households, at a rate of a little under two persons per household. This rose to a population of 546 in the 2011 census, spread among 313 households.

According to the census, the largest age group in Beadnell is 65-74, at around 21.6%, and the second largest being 45-59 at 20.8%.

Unemployment is low, with as little as 1% claiming their status as such, while the rest are either retired or work primarily in sectors relating to tourism, such as Accommodation and Food Services.

Nearby schools

There are no schools in the village itself, but the surrounding towns of Chathill and Seahouses provide options for primary education, Seahouses First School and Ellingham Primary among them. For secondary education, you will need to look further afield. The town of Alnwick is just a 20-minute drive away and is home to St. Paul’s RC First School. Additionally, The Duchess’ Community High School is a coeducational middle school and sixth form that strives to help its students achieve their full potential, and offers a range of both academic and vocational courses at all levels.

Getting around

The village is accessed via the B1340 road, part of the Northumberland Coastal Route, and is about a 10-minute journey from Chathill, its nearest train station. While the distance is walkable, many residents choose to drive. There is also a regular bus service that operates in the area; Beadnell is a stop on the Arriva X18 route, which runs between Newcastle and Berwick.

Local shops

There is a small shop and general store in Beadnell that also acts as the village Post Office, and is where you can buy any essentials. For supermarkets, you will need to travel to Seahouses, three miles to the north, where there is a Co-operative, or to Alnwick, where you will find a Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Iceland, Lidl and Co-op, as well as numerous independent stores selling quality local produce. The Craster Arms is the local pub; dating back to the sixteenth century, it offers good food and a friendly atmosphere, with a large beer garden for outdoor dining. And what seaside village would be complete without fish and chips? Visit The Chip Shop for this quintessential British dish.
