‘Gloriously deserted’ UK beauty spot has ‘an unbeatable panorama’

Bamburgh: Picturesque views of Northumberland beach

A beautifully deserted beach in north England has been voted as one of the country’s best beauty spots.

Ross Back Sands, in Northumberland, boasts a stunning beach, an “unbeatable panorama” and seals.

Located between Bamburgh to the South and Holy Island to the North, Ross Back Sands is around three miles of unspoiled dunes and beach.

Gemma Hall, author of Bradt’s Slow Travel: Northumberland, recommends travellers looking to take a trip in Britain, to visit the scenic and remote area.

Writing for travel site Wanderlust, Hall said the area is “gloriously deserted”.

She said: “This gloriously deserted sandy spit extends for 5km from Budle Bay to Lindisfarne.

“Access is via a 1.5km-long footpath through Ross Farm and across the dunes, which puts off the few travellers who venture here.”

But, the reward for the journey, is “an unbeatable panorama,” according to the site.

“All sky, sea and white sands with Lindisfarne Castle at one end and, at the other, Bamburgh Castle and the Farne Islands.

“A pair of binoculars will come in handy, not only to check out the seals lazing on Lindisfarne’s bay but also to scan the sea for divers, grebes, and scoters in winter, and terns in summer.”

The best view is from Guile Point, according to the site.

Walberswick, Suffolk is just behind on the list of “little-known British places you must visit”.

Laurence Mitchell, author of Bradt’s Slow Travel: Norfolk & Suffolk, wrote: “Walberswick was formerly a small trading port before its harbour silted up.

“Long adopted as a bohemian retreat by artists like Philip Wilson Steer and Charles Rennie Mackintosh, the former fishing village has long since morphed into an enclave for media types.

“These days it is popular with walkers and birdwatchers, and young families who come here to relax and go crabbing in the creek.

“The most atmospheric way to reach Walberswick, though, is by way of the rowing-boat ferry across the River Blyth from Southwold, an enterprise that’s been in the same family for five generations.”
