Beadnell is a small village in Northumberland
, situated on the North Sea Coast. It lies within AONB designated countryside and is a popular destination amongst sailing, diving and wind-surfing enthusiasts.
Before tourism took over as Beadnell's main industry the town was dependant on coble fishing
. Unfortunately its 200 year old harbour fell into disrepair following a violent storm in 1997.
After a major fundraising effort involving the whole town it was fully restored and now showcases the town's proud heritage. 18 lime kilns still remain and are located east of the harbour. Local fisherman now use them to store lobster pots.
, heritage coastline is ideal for walkers, with dozens of paths and trails that wind their way along the seafront, providing fine views of the nearby Holy and Farne Islands.
The strong westerly winds that gust through these parts are well-suited to windsurfers and sailing enthusiasts - there are a number of clubs that can be found in and around the harbour.

The St Ebba Church dates back to the 18th century and was restored in the 19th century. Along with the ancient harbour, it is perhaps Beadnell's most well-preserved historical landmark. 13th Century ruins can also be seen at Nuek Point which lies to the east. There's also a three-storey Pele Tower in the village centre - built in the 16th century it is one of 78 similar fortifications found throughout Northumberland.
