Details for Budle Bay

Budle Bay forms part of the stunning Northumbria Heritage Coast and is steeped in history. Prior to the formation of the mudflats, Budle was once a busy port with a thriving working harbour, transporting burned lime' from the nearby lime kilns, the remains of which can still be found.

From Budle Point the bay sweeps back to an area of grassy dunes, and makes a perfect area for birdwatchers and wildlife lovers to sit and observe the comings and goings of its resident species. Budle Bay is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Miles of mudflats and grassy dunes form the backdrop of the bay at low tide, and become home to an abundant array of migrating sea birds, grey seals and wildlife. Nearby there is Lindisfarne Nature Reserve, another important bird watching area. In the winter time the mud flats are filled with thousands of wading birds and wild fowl as they come seeking refuge in the sheltered bay.

The sandy beaches are embellished by amazing rock formations which appear out of the waters at low tide and form a breathtaking foreground out to the sea and Holy Island beyond. A gentle circular walk leads from the beach at Budle to the beach and castle at adjoining Bamburgh, returning via the road back into the village. Very popular with walkers to the area, this 5 mile long coastal trail offers stunning views on all sides.

Water sports are a favourite pastime along the coast and Budle Bay offers perfect conditions for kite surfing, wind surfing and jet ski-ing. The wide sandy bay and shallow tidal waters attract surfers of all levels. To protect the natural wildlife which migrates here to breed, kite surfing is only allowed between April and the end of October.
