Budle Bay

Visit Budle Bay

Budle Bay or Warren Mill, just north of Banburgh on the Northumberland coast, is a sandy beach lies along the south side of the bay.

It is popular with walkers, five mile walk around the bay, nature lovers and visitors to the nearby caravan parks which overlook it. It has to be reached on foot so is less visited than some other beaches.

At low tide the mud flats become home to thousands of birds. Budle Bay is a haven for birdwatchers and nature lovers, particularly during the winter season.

Did you Know? Budle Bay was once an important port given its charter in the C13th by King Henry III, though the once busy harbour has long since disappeared, beneath the estuary sands.

Dog Friendly all year round. Responsible dog owners are welcome on the reserve – this includes keeping dogs on a lead or at heel at all times (even on the beaches) to avoid disturbance to birds and grazing livestock.
