  • "This is the third year we have stayed at North Farm Cottages."

    We know that it will be spotlessly clean. The pool is just brilliant and tops any other holiday location because of this. We will be back next year! Thank you

  • "Swimming pool a real bonus, impression given before booking that it is closer to the sea than it was."

    Problem if you cannot walk that far. Good central location for the visiting of castles, houses and gardens but not if you want to visit the sea if you can’t walk up and down steep hills, or even get parking.

  • "Lovely holiday cottage in a lovely location."

    Great kids play area and ducks to feed, plus friendly sheep, rooster and hens. Beach was a bit further than expected- 28 minutes walk (with a 5 year old) according to strava, and not the buggy friendly path we had been expecting. Still a lovely walk though. Different lovely wander to the village and 3 pubs to choose from. Only thing missing was a BBQ which would have added nicely to the stay. Would recommend as we had a lovely half term stay.

  • "The views of the sea, which we expected, were great, but walking the path down to the beach was a lovely experience."

    We hadn't been aware of the secure duck pond or the childrens playground, which would be lovely for people with young children. In our property there was an orthopedic bed, which we hadn't noticed mentioned in the literature, but for some people would have been really useful. We will certainly look for availability at this or one of the other properties at the complex, when we next visit the area. We had planned this visit with our son and his wife, but unfortunately, due to Covid restrictions in the Northumberland area, mixed households were not allowed, so we had to visit alone.

    In walking shower room, there needs to be something to store/place toiletries on.

  • "The best thing about Long Cart Cottage was the view."

    The accommodation was very clean and spacious and comfortable and we had no concerns over the virus during our stay. The king sized bedroom was spacious and mattress comfortable, but the view out of the window was of the SUV of the owner, thus not very private. Also of note is that this cottage is very close to the chicken coop which contained 3 cockerels, but they were not too noisy but I would not recommend this cottage for light sleepers. The ensuite wet room adjoins the single bedroom and master bedroom and only 1 door locks from the inside. Note that the property only contains 1 shower (in the wet room) and it completely wets the sink and toilet upon use. As there was no cabinet for your toiletries, these too got wet. Both bathrooms do not have a window. The kitchen was very well stocked and dish washer tablets provided. The fridge and freezer are separate and as a family of 4 we struggled with the small fridge. The outside patio was lovely but note that it is not completely private from next door's hot tub. Wifi signal was perfect but no mobile signal. The location was about perfect with Seahouses and A1 about 10-15 min drive away in opposite directions.

    The cottage was lovely with incredible views to the sea and castle and the walk to the beach through the fields was gorgeous. The swimming pool was also great. I would love to come back!

  • "Excellent accommodation- comfortable and fabulous facilities."

    What makes this place however is it’s beautiful location . Views are amazing and the setting makes for a memorable and very relaxing family holiday . Close to fabulous beaches and restaurants. Indoor pool is an added bonus and is of a very high specification . We have already discussed returning .

  • "Excellent accommodation, clean, comfortable and with everything we needed."

    Lovely views over to Dunstanburgh Castle and nice walks in both directions. The swimming pool was great - a real bonus, especially for one member of the family with mobility problems who was unable to enjoy the walks. We would use this accommodation again. Booking easy and efficient, our only complaint being that to change the booking slightly, which would have incurred no extra charge for the property, would have cost us £30. This seems excessive for a couple of clicks / emails.

  • "The property was very comfortable with good facilities."

    We made ourselves at home straight away. We loved the setting, it was quiet and suited our needs. As wildlife enthusiasts we were pleased to see and watch the hares on the green outside the property. The walk down to the beach was beautiful and full of birdlife and wildflowers. This was the first time we had visited Northumberland and we will certainly be visiting again. Local folk were friendly and helpful. Thank you for making it a very enjoyable experience.

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.
