Built in 1877, Number 21 is a small, adults-only, bed & breakfast located in the lovely historic coastal village of Newbiggin-by-the-sea in Northumberland. Easy to find, just off the main road into Newbiggin, the B&B is just 2 minutes walk from our famous promenade and beach. Having first opened as a B and B in 2013 we offer comfortable accommodation in 2 spacious and well appointed en-suite double rooms.
Ian and Janice took over Number 21 early in 2018 and we pride ourselves upon the delivery of a first class experience for all our guests. We know the importance of a warm and friendly welcome and attention to detail throughout your stay. Whether this is your first visit, or you have been a guest before, we want your experience to be excellent. After many years in the shipping industry for Ian, and a life in education and motherhood for Janice, we are now very happy to be working together to bring you the best possible stopover, short break or holiday in this beautiful part of England.
Newbiggin-by-the-Sea is a small coastal town in south east Northumberland. The town is famous for its promenade and beach, which underwent a massive redevelopment in 2007, and for the impressive Couple sculpture. Once an important port for shipping grain and a coal mining town, it is still a small fishing port where traditional cobles are still in use today. The town attracts visitors who enjoy the beach and promenade as well as nature lovers who come to watch the North Sea seabird passage during the autumn and spring. Dolphins are often sighted close offshore and even within the bay. It is also home to a links golf course that is open year-round.
