The walkers Paradise in Northumberland

Oct 27, 2007
The hamlet of Waren Mill and the surrounding area are steeped in history, once an important port, given its charter in the 13th century by King Henry III. The once busy harbour has long since disappeared, silted up beneath the sands of the estuary.

A water powered corn mill existed at Waren Mill in 1187, with most of the present mill building dating from the 1780 and now long disused original corn mill where Waren Mill got its name, and old warehouses overlooking the bay have in recent years been converted into luxury loft apartments.

Budle Bay is a bird sanctuary and at low tide a vast expanse of mud flats is the home to countless thousands of sea and land birds. A haven for birdwatchers, this coastal area is a popular haunt of birdwatchers and naturalists in all seasons, with the winter months being particularly particular.

Ramblers have available several fascinating walks in the immediate area, both on the coast and inland, each with beautiful scenery on every side. A number of excellent books and guides have been written on the subject, the best of which allow planning a suitable route.

The walker can follow the coast to Budle Point, the southern entrance to Budle Bay, at low tide it appears east to walk across the narrow neck of shallow looking water to the northern point

You must but beware though, it is highly dangerous and several lives have been lost in the attempt to cross Budle Bay when it is like that, so be advised that the five mile walk around the bay is both pleasant and interesting, not to mention safer.

Theres so much for everyone in and around Waren, Frequent boat trips are made to the Farne Islands, where the seal colonies can be seen. The islands also abound with a wide variety of sea birds including puffins.

Visitors from all over the world come to explore the many castles and houses in the area, which are steeped in history. On the Caravan Park itself and surrounding areas there are many rare species of plants to be found.

What with just 3 miles from Waren Mill, you will find Bamburgh, with its superb and majestic castle, sandy beaches, bird watching, coastal walks, fishing and cycleway and not to mention the great food you will find here.

There are riding stables in Seahouses which cater for the novice or more experienced rider. Various sea sports and activities are available nearby and arrangements can be made by anyone wishing to participate.

Golfing facilities in Bamburgh are excellent and there is a wide choice of other courses nearby.
