  • "Plus points - Lovely cottage in new build area."

    Nice accessible walks from doorstep and a good base for surrounding landmarks, e.g Bamburgh, Dunstanburgh etc. Clean and modern, with good facilities. Welcome pack with essentials which was appreciated! Use of swimming pool and personal hot tub. Negative points - Smithy on end of row next to car park so everyone was walking past our window to get to their car as was only access. Only one bedroom had a mirror. During our 1 week stay we suffered 2 major power cuts (one over 12hrs) which, although no direct fault of the owner, hampered our stay quite a bit. Also we had to contact owner ourselves as he didn’t let us know what was happening which was a little frustrating. Although a designated ‘dark sky’ area, it was difficult to navigate in the dark from the pool back to our cottage - low level lighting may help? WiFi was hit and miss, no router that we could see, perhaps in adjacent cottage? All in all we would stay again if these few issues could be improved. A lovely house in a quiet area. Thankyou for having us.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry for the inconvenience of the other guests passing your cottage to get to there cars in the temporary parking area but we have completed the work on the correct car park for the new 6 cottages which is behind them and you gain access to it from the main car park. So there is no parking in that area now. We also have some out door lighting that gives you light back from the swimming pool to the cottage. We look forward to welcoming you back if you decide to have a return visit. Property Owner

  • "We loved the property."

    We made good use of the pool and hot tub. It’s a lovely setting and looks down on one of our favourite beaches. We looked into the possibility of coming back for Christmas but found the price to be astronomical.

    I’m pleased to hear you were so comfortable with your stay, it would be lovely to see you again if you choose to return to us. Property Owner

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.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

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.
