Cheswick Sands is a vast sandy beach on the Northumberland coast, with stunning views in every direction. To the north Berwick and the Border, and to the south the Castle of Holy Island.

Did you Know? Cheswick Sands there were warning notices about unexploded bombs left over from the Second World War, when this area was a big army base.

This beach is 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 our birds and grazing livestock. It’s one of our byelaws, which are there to protect the reserve.
