Walk description:

Parking at Craster / Low Newton / Dunstan and Embleton Golf Club. Route approx. 9 miles. The Ship at Low Newton is well worth the walk. Make certain of tides, otherwise you have return more or less the same way. Some stiles to negotiate but easily done with two people. Dunstan to Embleton follows National Cycle Route. Field sections can be uneven depending on time of year. Route takes in Dunstan Hall (with Pele Tower), Dunstanburgh Castle, The Ship pub.

Additional notes:

Walk was done with a Phil & Ted's three wheeler, the carry cot attachment and a 4-month old baby. You may find a sling useful - if only to manage the field sections if recently ploughed or to give the pusher a rest. Also a very good mobile chippy in Embleton on Tuesday evening if you time it right.

Totally unsuotable for pushchairs

As this walk includes walking across the beach (sand) as well as needing to watch the tides (the beach
disappears when tides are high and you'd need to scramble up high and steep sand dunes. It may be just about
possible but it's not going to be relaxing or particularly enjoyable. Fine with baby in a carrier but that's
hardly the point of the website.
