On a cottage holiday, Embleton and Amble are well worth a visit.
On Northumberland’s Heritage Coast, picturesque Embleton is an attractive village with a well-maintained green and village shop. Embleton’s main attraction is beautiful Embleton Bay, located about half a mile from the village centre. A vast sweep of fine sandy beach backed by high dunes, there are wonderful views down the coast to nearby Dunstanburgh castle, which rises majestically at the southerly tip of the bay.

At the mouth of the River Coquet, the small town of Amble, known as Amble-by-the-Sea until the mid-eighties, is a small fishing town with quiet, sandy beaches. The harbour and estuary are popular spots for fishing, sailing and bird watching, while tourist boat trips make the journey to nearby Coquet Island, which lies a mile or so off the coast, in search of puffins, seals and other marine life. The island is now a designated bird sanctuary in the care of the RSPB, where enthusiasts will find a wide variety of terns, but it first found fame as the home to St. Henry of Coquet, a Danish nobleman.
