  • "A good cottage."

    The entrance door to the main shower room needs attention as it fails to close etc. The external sliding conservatory door (which is acknowledged in the directions) is too complex, although it's a delightful space. More pans and a cheese grater are worth considering. And finally, the driveway would benefit from some attention in terms of foundation and levelling? Thanks Dr Jim Brogden

  • "The Property met our expectations."

    The village is truly beautiful. We enjoyed the village shop and meals out were a blessing after our busy days. Our dog quickly settled in front of the log burner as we recovered in the evening. The facilities in the property were first class and made for an enjoyable holiday. The distance through the village to the beach was misleading and disappointing as with a health condition that prevents my wife walking up steep inclines the main access was not an option. Luckily we explored an access point elsewhere in the village and were able to enjoy the beautiful bay.

  • "What an excellent property, the perfect base for exploring Northumberland."

    The cottage is comfortable , clean and well equipped and the garden is wonderful for relaxing in after a hard day's exploring. The village itself is a lovely little village with a local shop which is open 7 days a week and 2 excellent pubs, and just a short walk down the hill to the beach, which is absolutely beautiful. A stunning place to stay.

  • "This property may look a little dreary from the outside, but it is a really pleasant, comfortable and attractively furnished bungalow."

    The back enclosed garden is a very welcome addition. My only criticism is that it is a little misleading to describe it as two-bedroomed accommodation when really it can only accommodate two adults and up to four children - the bunkbeds only take young ones up to age of 17. I feel that should be made clearer. We already knew this actually as we have stayed there before so we knew that inviting our adult son to use it as a base for walking some of the St. Oswald way was not an option. All that said, we had a truly lovely week. Northumberland rarely disappoints.

    Thank you for your feedback and taking the time to comment. We are really pleased that you enjoyed the cottage and the garden. I`m sorry that you feel the listing is misleading. The bunk beds have full sized single mattress and are suitable for adults if they wish to use them. The top bunks are listed on the website as use for children only as we do not feel it is appropriate for adults to have to climb the ladders. I will request that this is made clearer on the website.

  • "We have been to this cottage many times and absolutely love it."

    It is so comfortable and clean. We loved the new conservatory. Definitely be back again.

  • "We were very impressed with the property."

    The level of cleanliness was exemplary, and the property lacked for no facilities. The conservatory was particularly welcome - we could enjoy the good weather without getting cold! The only slight downside was the drive. The description advises of the steepness, , but the loose gravel surface proved less than ideal - our rear wheel drive car could not negotiate the drive going forwards,and reversing on required a run at it, involving bouncing over the kerb at the entrance. A hard surface would perhaps work better. Having said that, parking on the street proved no problem, and certainly would not stop us booking this property again.

Inside, the open-plan living space is bright and airy with large windows helping to flood the area with loads of light and there is ample seating in front of a woodburning stove where you can kick off your shoes, lean back and relax and really get into the holiday ambience.

Another great space in which to chill out is the garden room which you can sit in and feel as if you are outside, even if it’s raining!

The adjoining kitchen area is immaculate with all the facilities needed to be able to create delicious meals for the whole family and next to it is a delightful dining table and chairs overlooking the gardens, making this the perfect spot for gathering and enjoying long, leisurely meals together.

If the sun is shining then the well-maintained gardens are a delight to spend time in and thanks to them being enclosed, are completely safe for children and any pets to run around.

Come bedtime and for the grown-ups there is the master bedroom which boasts an impressive king-size bed and for the children, a cool bunk bedroom.(lower bunk beds are suitable for adults, the upper bunk beds are suitable for children) In the morning, you’ll be refreshed and raring to go, so after a quick coffee in the gardens, it’s time to get out and about.

The pretty village of Embleton is within walking distance and there is a fantastic scenic walk from here to the neighbouring village of Craster with the town of Alnwick the ideal location for having a browse and stocking up on essentials.

Nearby Embleton Bay is a gorgeous sandy beach loved by adults and dogs alike!

Other beaches worth visiting include Beadnell Bay Beach and Newton Haven Beach.

Just a few miles away is the stunning Dunstanburgh Castle and if you’ve got a taste for history then check out Alnwick Castle, Preston Tower, Howick Hall and Bamburgh Castle.

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.
