Guest Reviews


    • “Fantastic location, comfortable accomodation.”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Accomodation was perfect for a family holiday, well equipped kitchen. We did have a problem with the hot water but one phone call to the landlord and it was sorted within in the day. The location was great, short drive to Low Newton with the excellent Ship Inn pub and beach. Great for exploring Northumberland. Parking wasn't an issue but was on street and the road could be quite busy at times - just needed to keep this in mind with little ones around. All in all a fabulous comfortable stay in a great location.”

    • “If you get blue skies Northumbria is perfect”

    • “Embleton is quiet, but has a shop and a pub, which is everything you need really. We had a week of clear blue skies, and although it was cold this area of Northumbria is beautiful. No towels in the cottage though, is it just me that expects towels? Everything else was great. My favaourite place of the week - Howick Hall Gardens.”

    • “Excellent base for touring area from Alnwick to Lindisfarne/Heri”

    • “Nice little cottage with surprisingly large living room and very well-equipped kitchen. Within easy distance of the coast and its many castles/beaches and Alwnich and areas beyond. Owner very thoughtful and helpful - e.g welcome pack on arrival which we didn't expect. We went during October half term and the cottage was warm and cosy. The village of Embleton itself is nothing special but Warkworth, Amble and other towns on the coast are lovely - and the countryside over towards Rothbury (and further south if you venture down to Hadrian's Wall) is stunning. Plenty of eating and shopping in nearby Alnwick, where you can access the A1. We enjoyed our time very much.”
