The scenery, walks and locality are amazing. Spacious, clean and well finished cottage. Storage in the bedrooms is quite limited, we were ok as only two of us but if there were four could be an issue. We also found the bed quite uncomfortable - definitely needs mattress replacing. The views from lounge more than made up for this however! Would love to stay again soon.
"The alteration to the booking of the pool ..."
The alteration to the booking of the pool Was a bonus as we could arrange our own pattern of use A minor point but the addition of another lamp to the opposite side of the room to the tv would be a benefit especially during the darker evenings Otherwise the accommodation is near perfect
"This must be our eighth stay at North Farm, we have stayed in three different cottages and we are never disappointed."
These cottages are consistently very good. The swimming pool is a valued extra.
"Fabulous cottage, clean & comfortable, faultless, in lovely quiet country side, with sea views."
The swimming pool is to die for, with your own hourly sessions, we didn’t realise that during the “off peak periods”, you book these slots on arrival, and we had planned our days out around these. Don’t be mislead by the 10 minute walk to the beach, we are used to walking and it took us 30 minutes, it’s a pleasant walk, but probably too far for those not used to walking. Considering all the cottages were booked, it didn’t feel at all busy.
"Good cottage but the experience felt a bit clinical rather than homely and lacks animals that you might expect on a holiday farm."
"The cottage is perfectly situated for those that enjoy some easy walks,across the fields to the beach and the pub ."
A slightly more strenuous walk can be had to Craster for kippers freshly smoked.
"Lovely stay - lots of things to do within easy driving distance and visiting in Spring was lovely with floral smells from the fields and fields with lambs nearby."
Good facilities :)
"The views, the swimming pool and the light, airy layout of the cottage"
"The more we use Sykes Cottages, the more impressed we are with everything from searching for a property to booking to enjoying our holiday."
We are looking for our next holiday!
"Home Stead cottage is a very spacious, comfortable and well equipped place to stay."
All the information about the area and places to visit are provided with lovely views across the farmed fields to Embleton bay inc a sea view. Ideal for walkers who like gentle walks. There are facilities for children in the play area and use of the indoor heated swimming pool which is available on a rota basis for the several cottages on the complex. Embleton is very central to all the places of interest inc all the popular castles and places to eat. Our first visit to Northumberland was not disappointing and we will probably return in the future.
"Sad that the swimming pool was not finished, but did not detract from the holiday, as we are from northeast and knew the area."
"It was in a great location but we were a little disappointed how far away the beach was."
I presumed it was nearer because the brochure said a stroll down a gentle sloping path .we are all pensioners so I suppose a younger person would get there quicker.we didn't make it to the beach after walking for about 30 mins. overall though it was a beautiful place within easy reach of the village.
"This complex of accommodations is well situated for a large area of different attractions."
Main concern was the fact that " dip in the newly built swimming pool" was advertised. It did not say it was still being built and the work was going on just outside your cottage, so don't take your swim wear folks. The bedrooms could have used more cloths drawer space and the Kingsize bed mattress was very soft,thin and noisy. They also need to look at what they are paying their "cleaning team" to do, changing beds and towels is not cleaning the cobwebs and dust accumulation. Having said all that, Northhumberland is great, extra woolly necessary but fantastic location.
"Building work was being carried out right in front of property, we were woken ..."
Building work was being carried out right in front of property, we were woken up between 7 and 8 most mornings, would have appreciated being warned regarding this and would have booked a hot tub cottage instead
"Comfortable cottage with good facilities."
Could have done with a shelf in the bathrooms and bedrooms had very limited storage so unpacking wasn't a good option.
"The cottage is in a perfect location for coastal walking."
You can set off directly from the cottage to the beach and pick up the coastal path for both north and south routes. The signage and pathways from the cottage are fantastic. The facilities and cleanliness of the cottage are first class.
"We found it very comfortable and absolutely loved it."
The views were great, Usually come to Northumberland twice a year including New Year, but at the moment unable to find anywhere, 8 people including a dog. This year I think the gates to Northumberland opened, as I have never seen so many people in September,plus the weather was gorgeous. Definitely recommend Homestead Cottage.
"An absolutely fantastic cottage - certainly the nicest we've ever stayed in - in an idyllic location."
Only (very minor) quibble was that the beds could have been a little more comfortable.

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.
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.
