  • "Had a fantastic week at Low Croft cottage with our family."

    It is an amazing place to base yourself for exploring Northumberland. Would recommend it to all our friends and the addition of the pool is great for everyone. We will definitely be back.

  • "We absolutely loved our stay at Low Croft."

    Waking up to see the sun reflecting on the sea was our daily treat, then the walk down to the beach on our private grass path. We loved the swimming pool. Everywhere on the complex was beautifully maintained and the cottage had everything we needed.

  • "The cottage is in a lovely location and the pathway to the beach was kept well mown."

    It was a lovely walk among crops and wild flowers to a very nice beach with sand dunes for shelter on windier days. The indoor pool was very well maintained and a lovely temperature. We will definitely go back to North Farm Cottages.

  • "We enjoyed our holiday, the location of the property was excellent, enabling us to visit all we wanted to."

    We felt that the property was overpriced for what it was, maybe this was due to supply and demand given the Covid pandemic! £1185 for a week (well 6 days given that you cannot check in until after 5pm and need to leave 1t 9:30). The lounge wouldn't comfortably accommodate 6 adults but as we were only 2 it was ok for us, just want to let people know if they were a party of 6 the lounge and seating wouldn't suffice. TV very small. Walk to the beach was over 10 mins and wouldn't be easy pushing a buggy. We felt the way the footpaths were kept neatly cut was great and gave a safe route to Embleton. It was lovely having allocated hourly time slots for the pool but unfortunately, one family that was in before us didn't come out on time which meant we lost 10 mins of our time. Such a shame people can't stick to the rules.

  • "Would be worth listing how far/how long to the beach."

    For adults it's an easy walk but for toddlers it's a good walk and not ideal for pushchairs.

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.
