North Sunderland is a typically pretty village on the Northumberland coast some 45 miles north of the city of Sunderland. Combining all the pleasures of a semi rural yet coastal spot, this is a popular access point for the Farne Islands. North Sunderland holiday cottages tease you with coastal views of both natural coastline and the structured harbour. There are pier walks aplenty and you’re right next door to the better known village of Seahouses. Trips to the Farne Islands centre around diving and angling. If bringing your own boat, slipway access is easy and visiting moorings available through the summer season.
Whilst renowned for its herring hauls in the past, much of today’s local trawlers bring in shellfish. Taste the freshest you can in local eateries, before the rest is shipped overseas.
