With spring in the air, the coastal town of Blyth in South East Northumberland offers the perfect location to enjoy the warmer weather as a family and here’s why...

The bustling port town’s star attraction is South Beach – a stretch of sand by the sea which is home to its very own beach huts available for hire, as well as seaside favourites including fish and chip shops, a children’s play area and ice cream parlours. 

Lovers of the great outdoors can continue their exploration at Ridley Park – an ideal setting for a stroll through its scenic gardens and woodland areas, or for little ones to burn off some energy at the children’s play areas and water play area opening during the summer months.

For leaders of an active lifestyle Blyth Leisure Centre has a busy schedule of activities to get involved with as well as many facilities, including a swimming pool, sauna and steam rooms, with trampolining and martial arts classes sure to satisfy any thrill seekers.    

When it comes to amenities, in addition to the shops in the town centre, Blyth Market runs three times per week, bringing stall holders together to showcase fresh local produce, handmade goods and unique gift ideas.

Those who like to shop can also make the most of the collection of well-known retailers at the nearby Manor Walks Shopping and Leisure Centre in Cramlington which is around a 10 minute drive away. The centre also offers a retail park, cinema and restaurants to really make a day of it.

Families looking to settle in Blyth can choose from a selection of good schools in the area including Newsham Primary School and Horton Grange Primary School.

This wonderful residential area in Northumberland offers a diverse range of stunning outdoor attractions as well as appealing practical amenities with something for all ages.
