    “Amazing view makes up for some small issues: The wardrobes are not full size and inadequate for a family of 4 for a week.”

    I had to remove shelves to be able to hang up clothes. There was enough ceiling height so not sure why they are so small. Complete lack of shelves in bathroom, would be really helpful to install some and fit some hooks for towels/robes. The staircase is extremely creaky, waking everyone and possibly the neighbours. To say the property was not available until 5pm (instead of 3) due to deep clean because of Corona virus; the property was not overly clean, found wrappers in the lounge, a few ...

    I had to remove shelves to be able to hang up clothes. There was enough ceiling height so not sure why they are so small. Complete lack of shelves in bathroom, would be really helpful to install some and fit some hooks for towels/robes. The staircase is extremely creaky, waking everyone and possibly the neighbours. To say the property was not available until 5pm (instead of 3) due to deep clean because of Corona virus; the property was not overly clean, found wrappers in the lounge, a few dirty pots, cobwebs and spiders everywhere, didn't smell clean. Another issue was distinct lack of cupboard space in the kitchen due to 3 cupboards being full of glasses, way too many, 16 wine glasses etc. Would have been better to keep in storage for when needed so I could have put food in cupboards. Other than that beautiful view and lovely village and area of the UK. We will return but to different accommodation.

    Many thanks for your feedback. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed the views and your time in Embleton. Each bedroom has a double width unit and whilst they are not the usual 2m + in height this is the first time we have received any comments about them but will bear this in mind. We are sorry that the cleaning standards did not meet your expectations as we take the cleaning very seriously . The extra time during changeover is in part to enable the cottage to air after guests vacate, before our staff enter and part to enable additional sanitising of surfaces etc. This week was the first time in the cottage for our new cleaner and we have reviewed this with our staff to ensure the property is up to standard and will monitor this closely each week. The bathroom has 4 hooks for hanging towels/robes & the tall towel radiator whilst the window sill above the wash basin provides space for bottle storage. We will consider adding some additional shelves. We were aware of the squeaky staircase and have workmen booked to resolve it at the end of this season - we are unable to do that before then as it involves removal of the ceiling below etc which is not possible on a changeover day. We hope this didn't impact your holiday too much . We have removed some unnecessary items from the kitchen. Thank you again for staying with us. - Sykes owner relations

About the location

EMBLETON

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..
