The pretty village of Embleton is ideally placed for exploring one of the most attractive stretches of Northumberland's Heritage Coastline. A beautiful grassy path runs from the village to neighbouring Craster, alongside the sea and past Dunstanburgh Castle - the largest ruined castle in Northumberland. Embleton itself has four village pubs, two of which serve food, and there is an excellent range of amenities in nearby Alnwick. The gardens at nearby Howick Hall are open during the summer and are noted for their beauty, whilst Alnwick Castle and Garden are a 'must-see' when visiting the area. For the keen golfer, Dunstanburgh Links Course is about 1 mile away - just one of several excellent courses in the vicinity.

Previous visitors' comments about Croft Cottage:
Beautiful cottage in a very peaceful location, cottage was furnished to a very high standard. Particularly enjoyed the log fire and DVD player for cosy evenings in.
Mrs Snell, Stevenage, October 2012
The cottage is set in a beautiful converted farm building. Sitting outside there are lovely views across the fields. The owners are very helpful. The cottage has a log burning stove which is very warm and homely.
Mr Austin, Sheffield, September 2012
We love this part of the country. Croft Cottage was really beautifully laid out. In particular we liked the open space of the kitchen/dining area and living area - finished to a very high standard. Very quiet and relaxing and the owners were very helpful and friendly but not intrusive.
Mrs Duncan, Edinburgh, April 2012
A fantastic location - feels so isolated yet only a few miles from Alnwick and its shopping facilities. Cottage is just beautifully finished and was excellent for all our needs - being on one level really helped with our toddler and we didn't use the wood burning stove so that wasn't a safety issue. Loved the extra cloakroom and utility with washing machine, plus small hall with space for coats and boots. Local footpath good for walks and small play area on site another bonus. Overall, a great find!
