    • “Catching up with family”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Embleton is a wonderful peaceful, safe village, the cottage was just what we wanted, we watched the fireworks for November 5th from the front garden, the weather was fantastic for the time of year. It's quite easy to pick up the A1 for visits further North and Alnwick, a very quaint town within easy reach. Of course I'm biased I was born in Northumberland and just think its the most wonderful county. There isn't anything I can find fault with.”

    • “THE Cottage in October 2009”

    • “This holiday started from the time I telephoned the owner to say, we were coming. The cottage is in an excellent position, and the village is everything you could want. A relaxing yet very interesting historical and picturesque area. Walk on the beach or paddle in the water Embleton has the best beach ever. The walk to Craster via Dunstanburgh Castle is yet to be beaten - IT IS FANTASTIC!. The only downside is having to leave.”

    • “A lovely cottage within walking distance of fabulous beaches”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We enjoyed lovely weather for our stay in Embleton Cottage in July this year. We have visited Northumberland many times, and in our view this area is the best on the coast, as it is within easy reach of Craster, Alnwick and Bamburgh, our favourite places, along with wonderful beaches and coastal walks. The cottage is situated right next door to the pub, which is rarely open, but we were able to enjoy a pint in our own sunny garden, followed by dinner outside. There is a small garden table and chairs, not mentioned in the cottage details. Although the cottage is on the roadside, it is a very quiet position. The kitchen/diner is very well equipped and the lounge is comfortably furnished and quite big enough for four adults. The lovely big master bedroom has a very small, very compact but fully functioning en-suite shower room. The beautiful, spacious main bathroom is the only room upstairs. We felt that the second, twin, bedroom was very small and better suited to two children than adults, particularly as access to the main bathroom was across the lounge, through the kitchen and up a flight of stairs - quite a trek in the middle of the night. Embleton has a couple of pubs and a small but well stocked shop just around the corner. Visit the mobile chippy on Tuesday evenings for very good fish and chips, and don't forget Robsons of Craster for kippers, crabs and other seafood.”

    • “Our second visit to this charming cottage with its individual layout. The village and location once agin provided the perfect respite from a hectic city life. Local eating places remain outstanding and a real reason to go back again and again.”

    • “We love Embleton - a really nice village and within walking distance of the sea. Lots of places to visit were within easy reach. The cottage was very nice indeed - very clean and tidy and the owner was very friendly. There were plenty of places to eat within the vicinity and a fish and chip van visiting on a Tuesday! Lots and lots of birds - a really enjoyable holiday.”

    Mr Scott, Leeds, June 2014

    • “The holiday was perfect. The accommodation and location could not have been better, this was our first visit to the North East and it won't be our last, we would certainly stay at Embleton Cottage again.”

    Mrs Ware, Crewe, May 2014

    • “From Berwick to Alnwick beautiful scenery and much interesting history. Cottage was cosy, warm and comfortable - good to return to from the cold easterly wind.”

About the location


Craster 3 miles; Beadnell 4 miles; Alnwick 7 miles.

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 a village pub and a local hotel, 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.
