Join natural history guide Madeline for this bird watching holiday in ever popular Northumbria. The coast is simply stunning and there are many opportunities to see a variety of coastal birds including puffin, kittiwake, fulmar, gannet..the list goes on.

The holiday is based in Beadnell with great access to the coast. We hope to take a boat trip to the Farne Islands to get a closer look at the cliff nesting birdlife. It is a very special experience and a sight to behold due to the sheer number of birds nesting there. We will also head to Lindisfarne for the day which is host to a number of birds and a fascinatin island in its own right.

Walks are up to 6 miles at a slow pace, stopping frequently to observe wildlife and nature. There are some ascents and descents on the holiday due to the nature of coastal walking but these will be kept to a minimum and taken at a leisurely pace.
We stay at a small family run motel style B&B with car parking directly outside your room. There is a cafe adjoining the rooms where breakfast is provided. The rooms are of a good standard and in an ideal location for an outdoor holiday. The staff are friendly and very welcoming.
