Coast walk one of the country’s top ten

A national newspaper has named a route in north Northumberland as the number-two best coastal walk in the country.

An article in The Independent describes the 10-mile walk from Craster to Low Newton as ‘one for the foodies’.

It recommends dropping into the Jolly Fisherman in Craster before heading past Dunstanburgh and Embleton Bay and finishing with a pint at the Ship Inn and Brewery at Low Newton.

David Whitehead, of the Jolly Fisherman, said: “It’s fantastic and testament to the hard work of our team that we have been mentioned in such a well-read paper. We are a pub/restaurant that prides itself on quality food and drink. With us just having a refurb, I hope that this will drive people to the village and the Jolly Fisherman.

“The Northumberland coastline is fantastic area, and I’m glad it’s been recognised for its beauty.”
