Quite a long walk through the dunes but well worth it . Even if there are a dozen cars parked you will find you will feel as though you have the place to yourselves. There are no amenities apart from sea and sand. Walk to the south and Bamburgh castle comes closer. Also Budle bay is at the south end... More

No Cafes, you won't meet new friends because it is usually a deserted beach, the kids won't have anyone to play with, there is golden sand and it gets everywhere, miles of it. Those seals look cuddly but are vicious. The beach is 20 minutes from the lay by (grass verge) that they force you to park in. Did I... More

Spectacular sea views and lovely for walking. Watching the waves change with the weather is great here. You'll want to come back.

Unspoilt beach and views as far as the eye can see in both directions. Nestled in between Bamburgh and Lindesfarm castles. A great walk certainly blows the cobwebs away on a Sunday morning. A stunning place with Sand dunes as the backdrop and the crashing North Sea in front. Tide goes out a long way so masses of sandy beach... More

We were told about the beach at Ross whilst visiting Wooler and as we had to come back near decided to drop in, so glad we did, a 10 min walk from where you can leave the car but so worth it, the sands are fantastic, there were seals lying on the beach, no people at all in sight, wonderful.

Miles and miles of beautiful sandy coastline, very clean and hardly any people! A seemingly undiscovered little piece of paradise. Great for walking the dog.

Wonderful slightly hidden away beach which you are likely to have to yourself. Dog friendly and very peaceful. Recommended.

I don't want to leave a review, because more people will find out where it is and spoil it. It's a long walk over dunes and through fences, but well worth it. No shops or amenities anywhere near, so take provisions and make sure little ones have been to the toilet.
