The Ship Inn, Northumberland
'A beer garden is the only way to round off a summer walk,' says Jo ' and it's hard to beat the Ship Inn in Low Newton by the Sea. It helps that the six-mile walk is one of Northumberland's finest. Start at Craster and head north to explore the iconic ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle before strolling across the sand at Embleton Bay and reaching the tiny square of fishing cottages at Low Newton. Don't miss the home-brewed ale and hot smoked Craster kippers.'
Distance 6 miles
