Discover Cresswell
Located on the Northumberland Coast Path, the seaside village of Cresswell is a popular destination for walkers and cyclists. Cresswell Beach and Cresswell Towers Holiday Park also make it a popular location for families especially in the school holidays.

Discover stretches of golden sandy beaches

Located close to Druridge Bay and nearby attractions, the sandy beach at Cresswell is one of the best on the Northumberland coast for dog walkers and families looking for a day at the beach.

Nearby you will find the infamous Cresswell Ices, which is used by locals and visitors in search for a much needed ice cream shop. Across the road from the beach car park you also have The Drift Cafe that is famous for homemade local food and drink, or why not head to a local takeaway for fresh seafood and to get your seaside fish and chips fix.

If you're looking at holiday parks for a weekend break away then go no further than Cresswell Towers Holiday Park where you will find views of the North Sea Coast and Cresswell Beach. You may even want to make the stay permanent with a holiday home onsite.

Walking, cycling and birdwatching are popular activities along Cresswell Beach. With its scenic views from clifftop paths and local bird hides nearby, Cresswell really is a place of outstanding natural beauty.
