One of the nicest things about St. Bees, at the western edge of Cumbria and a point on the Coast to Coast Walk, is its beach, a long sandy affair ridged by grassy hills, smooth as cake icing. One of the other highlights are the steep cliffs that flank the lip of the beach, their red coloured sandstone is used in many of Cumbria's buildings. Just off the beach is an RSPB bird sanctuary, so there's a chance of hearing puffins or terns overhead as you're digging your sandcastle.
