  • "Gorgeous spacious cottage and the utensils / cooking equipment made it easy to cook for large numbers."

    Unfortunately the dishwasher didn't work during our stay which wasn't helpful when cooking for so many people. A few bits of feedback which would have made the stay perfect : New tin opener as had to borrow neighbours due to ours not working, New single beds as they were so uncomfortable it was impossible to sleep on them, Good clean of under beds etc as very dirty and dusty on mirrors / under tables etc, Heating was sporadic and was either roasting hot like a sauna or freezing cold where we woke up and we weren't able to control the times it was set for, The plug in the downstairs bath doesn't work. Having said this, it was lovely accommodation with brilliant amenities such as play park and having a swimming pool next door was a luxury - clean and warm too so perfect.

    Thank you for your feedback. We know that you spoke to the owner and the manager about a lot of your points you have put in the feedback during your stay and on your departure. The housekeepers have cleaned under the beds replaced the tin opener (which could have been replaced if asked for during your stay). It was unfortunate that the dishwasher broke the day of your arrival which was Good Friday but it has been replaced by a brand new one now Property Owner

  • "We had a fantastic long weekend to celebrate New Year 8 Adults 4 Children 1 baby and a dog!"

    ! It didn’t start off very well as there was a major power cut due to weather which we weren’t advised about until I rang to ask a question about parking! Begs the question if anyone was going to let us know. We were able to get into cottage from 4 but because there was no power we decided to delay our journeys. I would have thought there might have been a back up generator. However we were offered to go to local pub or go to cottage and light the fire and we would be able to use the gas hob. Nicola did update us from the northern grid on the progress. Luckily the power went on at 19.30 when we were literally talking about returning home and we had some very upset children. The staff checked on us to make sure everything was ok. We could not fault the facilities the bedrooms and bathrooms lovely and clean considering they were cleaned with no electricity! When the weather improved the views were stunning the kids enjoyed their slots in the pool and all in all was a fab weekend making memories.

    We’re very grateful you decided to come to us and that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay. I’m incredibly sorry to hear there were a few problems with the power please do let me know right away if anything like this occurs yet again, we are more than happy to facilitate in the need of any extraordinary circumstances.

  • "Having paid over £3000 for Easter week I was not expecting to be beside a building site."

    We were not told further cottages were being built on the site, and while not adjacent to our accommodation it did have an impact on our holiday. The bathrooms were 5* but the living accommodation was tired and the kitchen lacked equipment. 7 saucepans and 2 lids! Also the fridge/freezer dispenser was not working. This was designated a dog friendly property but the back door to the grounds had 3 steps down and no outside light. Health and Safety would have something to say if someone slipped in the dark and the owner/agents could be liable for damages. As we were meeting up with family North Farm is ideal for such occasions and I am sure that once all the building work is finished it will be great, just a pity that we were not told the Complex was still being completed.

    Thank you for leaving your feedback I apologise for being so long in replying. At the time we were busy extending our site. As you say building work can be a disruption. As part of the work we have been doing, improving the outside lighting was one of them. I trust the garden and patio on the South side of the house provided sufficient isolation from the work. The good news is that the work is complete and the new cottages are available to book from 28th March. If your cottage is missing anything or there is a problem, we provide you with a number to ring and we always do our best to resolve and issues and quickly as possible. I hope you enjoyed the other facets of your stay with us and got good use out of our facilities and will consider us again should you choose to visit the area again. Property Owner

  • "We have just returned from a week at granary stone house with 8 adults and 2 children and we had a really great week."

    The house is amazing, very spacious well equipped and comfortable enough for us all. The heating was very efficient and we didn’t need to use log burner. The pool table was a real bonus too. The kitchen had everything we needed and we prepared a few home cooked meals including Sunday dinner with ease. The washing machine and dryer were also a great bonus. The views were stunning and the walk up to the beach was really lovely and we saw hare and deer on a few occasions and was lovely seeing the lambs in the fields adjacent too. The 2 grandchildren loved the pond area with the ducks and the musical pipes but the play area wasn’t really interesting them much and was a bit sparse. The swimming pool was great, very clean and efficient and well thought out. The house is situated close to some beautiful coastal gems and we would definitely recommend. The only downside for us is the garden area. I feel it would have really benefited from an enclosed garden for the safety of both young children and the dogs, especially where the outside dining area is and also at the front.

    Very clean and warm with a full range of kitchen equipment and a lovely dinning table great for family 'gatherings'. All bedrooms and bathrooms were as you would expect and living room was just perfect for our large family. The swimming pool was a delight, especially enjoyed as it was bookable and therefore private to us at our time of booking. Outside facilities, including playground and football field were well used by our younger ones and walks to the beach were a regular feature. Again, excellent property in a brilliant location.

  • "My family and I had a lovely stay at the Granary Stonehouse."

    The location and views were beautiful and we walked too and from the beach every day. The added bonus of the on-site pool was very much appreciated by us all as well. The house was very clean and comfortable and had most things that we needed. We understood that covid had impacted some comforts that would have probably been included, however we do have a few suggestions going forward to further enhance customers stays. The towels in the bedrooms would benefit from changing to bath sheets as the current towels were too small for adults. The kitchen could benefit from a few more serving bowls as well as flat baking trays as we cooked meals for the majority of us during our stay and we didn’t have everything we needed for cooking/ serving. Salt and pepper and cooking oil would also be a welcome addition. Due to the cost of the accommodation I strongly believe a welcome letter and a small welcome baskets of perhaps a small carton of milk as well as tea and coffee would be a good option to include to welcome guests as we had driven a few hours to get to Embelton and our grocery delivery was delayed meaning we had to get back in the car to find some essentials. We have stayed at many accommodations both out of covid and during covid and the accommodation which is similar pricing always supply a small welcome basket which really helps make you feel more welcome and comfortable. We also had an issue with one of the gas hobs which the owner had arranged a gas engineer to come out to fix. Unfortunately this was arranged during our stay and not on one of the changeover days at a time inconvenient to us. We were all sat eating lunch in the kitchen when the engineer came out which meant we had to all move so they could get to the hob. The check in/ check out times were quite late/ early. An extra hour both sides would be better so you can enjoy a bit more of the accommodation. Other than the above recommendations we did all have a lovely holiday and would recommend to others and we would return.

    The quality of the beds was disappointing for the price we paid for the property. In downstairs bathroom, cold tap loose on basin, toilet flush loose. Bath towels were on small size (pleased we had taken our own bath sheets). In the lounge area I don’t think they had moved the unit under the TV for a long time looking at the dirt you could see. (We did not fix). Likewise under the large sofa unit and toys were found under a bed in one of the upstairs beds when we checked that the children hadn’t left anything. Elsewhere the property was clean. Unfortunately no key available to open the Juliet balcony doors. Well equipped kitchen and large range cooker. Would have appreciated some pint glasses. Nice little playground for the children and pool is one of the best in a small complex we have come across.

    It was very comfortable, clean and had everything supplied which we could possibly require. The swimming pool was clean and warm. The only disappointment was the swimming pool. When I made the booking through Sykes the picture of the accommodation was shown attached to the swimming pool. There was nothing on the website which listed this as a shared swimming pool. We only discovered that this had been misleading advertising when a friend looked on the website weeks later and informed us that it was advertised as a shared swimming pool. This was extremely disappointing for all of our party as this was the main reason we booked this particular accommodation. The allocation of slots for use of the pool need looking into. To only find out when your slots are on arrival is very unsatisfactory, especially when planning days out and activities away from the rental. To be allocated it from 2.30 - 3.30pm on Mothering Sunday is very unsatisfactory when lunching away from the accommodation and not being able to swim on a full tummy. We also noticed not all of the allocated slots for the pool were used when it would have been more convenient for us to use them. I really do think you should come up with a better system. Also a lighter or matches, if allowed, would have been helpful to enable us to light the log fire.

North Farm Cottages

A group of tastefully decorated, luxury cottages with panoramic views towards Embleton Bay. Each cottage at North Farm has been individually styled with great attention to detail; with dining tables for those celebratory meals, sleek kitchens and large living areas to accommodate you and your loved ones, spacious bedrooms with soft beds and bathroom facilities, all of which help to provide a superb base for touring this beautiful county. Relax on the peaceful patio area or perhaps enjoy a dip in the newly-built swimming pool. North Farm was once a busy working farm and is still surrounded by lush green fields. A safe, gently sloping farm track leads from the farm down to stunning Embleton Bay, with little extras along the way to make the walk more exciting. Guests can say hello to the three deer, stop off at the old pill box for a rest or relax on the beach and spend the day making sandcastles and paddling. From the beach, turn left and take a stroll to the Ship at Low Newton, famous for its microbrewery and scrumptious food, or for a more ambitious walk, turn right and take in Dunstanburgh Castle. Head to Craster, where you can sample the delights of a crab sandwich in the Jolly Fisherman, or pick up some kippers from Robson's famous smokery. There is so much to see and do in Northumberland, with Alnwick Castle and Gardens, Holy Island, Bamburgh, Warkworth and Berwick all within easy reach. These delightful cottages are perfect for a beachside Northumberland break.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.

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.
