Offering village living and unparalleled views of the North Sea, yet situated within close proximity of two town centres, it is ideally placed to enjoy the best of quiet coastal life and city living. Whitburn represents the quintessential English village, with a parish church, cricket ground and park, as well as a listed 18th century windmill from which the Mill Lane stretch of the A183 takes its name. For families, there are three primary schools in the village, with Seaburn to the south and Marsden Beach to the north.
Within walking distance you will find a host of local amenities including a seafood market, butchers, library and Post Office, while a supermarket, leisure centre and doctor’s surgery are just a short drive away.
You can explore the Whitburn Coastal Park just north of the village, which is a National Trust area popular with bird-watchers and Souter Lighthouse, in nearby Marsden, is open to the public featuring an accompanying play area.
During summer, both dolphins and whales can be visible off the coast and the area’s three pubs are popular spots year-round with locals and visitors alike.
The Tutti Frutti Ice Cream Parlour offers a selection of desserts and delights, while Latimer’s Seafood Market sells freshly caught produce from the North Sea. The Madhatter Sweet Emporium is also a big favourite with both locals and visitors to the area.
