The National Trust cares for some of our most cherished places, landscapes and wildlife habitats on the Northumberland Coast including Lindisfarne Castle, The Farne Islands, the two inland sites of Ros Castle and St Cuthbert's Cave, and over 12 miles of stunning coast over a forty mile stretch. These include St Aidan's dunes at Seahouses, Beadnell lime kilns, Craster to Low Newton (including Dunstanburgh Castle and Embleton Bay), Buston Links at Alnmouth and Druridge Bay.

Fancy a holiday?
We hope you all had a wonderful festive season and are
settling into the New Year. As the deluge of rain batters against the window, the
mind has a tendency to partake in a bit of holiday day-dreaming.
To give you a bit of inspiration, every year the ranger team
on the Northumberland Coast host two working holidays and 2016 will be no different! It is always a brilliant
week and in the past it has even been sunny (not to tempt fate).
Restoring paths in the dunes
Help to keep our coastline special by spending a week working in dunes and coastal habitat. Get stuck into a variety of conservation
tasks from scrub clearing, to meadow management and path restoration.
A well deserved break while cutting back bramble
Although our holidays aren’t advertised in the brochure, we
will be hosting two working holidays next year one from the 16th to
the 23rd of July and another from the 15th to the 22nd
of October. Accommodation is in the wonderful bunkhouse at Cragside estate and
we promise a fun-filled and possibly muddy week.
Each week is £155 and you can book your place by ringing the
