The property

A luxury three-storey property in Embleton, superbly located in an elevated position with stunning, uninterrupted views over Embleton Bay and Dunstanburgh Castle.

This beautifully presented Embleton cottage boasts fabulous designer fixtures and fittings throughout.

The large and airy sitting room in this Embleton cottage has a beautiful herringbone fireplace with stone surround, oak flooring, underfloor heating and a very large bay window from which breathtaking sea and rural views can be enjoyed.

The warming open fire is a lovely place to sit next to on chillier evenings whilst sinking into the huge, luxurious sofas.

Double arched doors lead into the large Victorian hallway and on to the open plan kitchen with dining area; a great place for entertaining, the solid oak trestle table seats twelve people comfortably, whilst quirky shipping pendant lights hover over the dining area.

The bespoke fitted kitchen is a chef's delight with two double ovens, five burner induction hob and state-of-the-art leathered granite worktops.

On the first floor of this Embleton cottage there is a further sitting room with woodburner, TV and sofas, offering peace and quiet for adults or a great space to leave the kids whilst the grown-ups entertain below!

A doorway from this sitting area leads to a delightful Grade II listed 18th century watch tower, perched on the south east corner of this Embleton cottage and enjoying sea views; rumours are that J.M.W.

Turner sat there to sketch the stunning views.

Two large bedrooms both with en-suites and a laundry area complete the first floor.

The second floor of this Embleton cottage has a further four bedrooms and bathrooms, all with luxurious carpets and solid French beds.

The luxury design features run throughout all the bedrooms and bathrooms in this Embleton cottage, with a mix of queen and zip/link beds, unique appeal and stunning views.

Bamburgh Castle can be clearly seen to the north, and indeed not many properties in the area can boast that the coastline can be seen from Bamburgh to Craster!

To the rear of this Embleton cottage is a raised, enclosed area with decking and furniture, and to the front is a large area with paving, decking, lawns, and a fire pit for those less-than-warm Northumberland evenings; a great place to sit with a cold glass of wine and simply immerse yourself in the dramatic backdrop of this beautiful bay.

This Embleton cottage is the perfect destination for groups wanting to get together for that long-awaited Northumberland break in wonderful surroundings.

Note: This cottage is next to Ref. 20247, and together they sleep 20.

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.
