Newton-by-the-Sea is a civil parish in the county of Northumberland in Northern England. The parish is about 8 miles northwest of Alnwick, and lies on the coast between the larger settlements of Embleton and Seahouses. Newton-by-the-Sea is in the parliamentary constituency of Berwick-upon-Tweed. The population of the parish in the 2011 United Kingdom Census was 212.[1] The area of the parish is 15.82 square kilometres (6.11 sq mi)[1]

There are two distinct settlements in the parish: High Newton-by-the-Sea (which, despite its name, is about half a mile inland) and the coastal Low Newton-by-the-Sea, owned by the National Trust.[2][3] The area is notable for the diversity of birds to be observed.[4] Just to the south is Embleton Bay.

Newton Hall is an 18th-century country house in High Newton-by-the-Sea. It is a grade II listed building[5] and is today used as a hotel and wedding venue.[6] The Ship Inn at Low Newton-by-the-Sea is an 18th-century pub with its own microbrewery. Brewing started in 2008, and over 20 different cask ales are produced.[7][8]

The uninhabited island of Faggot (55°31′52″N 1°36′07″W / 55.531°N 1.602°W / 55.531; -1.602) lies about half a mile offshore from Newton.[9]
