Welcome to St Bees

St Bees is a village just south of St Bees Head, the most westerly point on the Cumbrian coast, 50 miles from the Scottish border. It's a small, friendly community with a population of about 1,800.

It's well known for the Norman Priory dating from 1120 dedicated to our own Saint Bega (seen on our logo above), for the 400 year-old St Bees School, and to countless walkers as the start of the Wainwright Coast to Coast Walk.

It's also been a popular holiday destination for over 150 years. There is a large sandy beach and nearby are the towering red sandstone cliffs of St Bees Head, which is the only Heritage Coast between Scotland and Wales and a nationally important seabird reserve.

Only a few miles from the Lake District National Park, St Bees enjoys easy access to the the Lakes without the crowds of the more popular areas. It's an ideal base from which to tour both the Western Lakes and the many attractions along the west coast.
