  • "Excellent property, very comfortable, the only thing that would have improved it at all would have been if we could have accesses freebies or our Amazon Prime account to watch programmes on tge evenings we were in."

    Great location, lovely place, we’ll be back!

  • "The property was was excellent except for one or 2 exceptions."

    The 2 steps leading up to the living room and bathroom are still dangerous in spite of the strip across the top. It needs another strip on the bottom step as when you come back down because all the flooring is the same colour it is blind . The side table lamps in the bedrooms are exactly that and not reading lights and so I had to keep on the main lights to read. The top bedroom doesnt have an accessible mirror . Everything else was perfect and a Thankyou for the items that were left for us to enjoy

  • "Thank-you for an amazing week."

    We thought that the location was perfect. We loved walking to the beach and the tranquility of the surrounding area. The pool was an amazing facility. We enjoyed visiting Edinburgh, Cragside, Seahouses, Craster and relaxing at Low Newton. We need to come back to explore more of Northumberland, a week wasn't enough. Idyllic!

  • "Fantastic week had at this property."

    Everything we could have thought of we had. Incredible place to explore Northumberland. Had an issue with a shower which was looked at straight away. People had thought really hard about us taking a little one and provided a stair gate aswell as a high chair which we could use. The property its self was clean on arrival and perfect for the family we had with us. Have booked again for February.

  • "Lovely property which met all our expectations."

    The property was beautifully decorated and maintained and of the highest quality. The location was second to none and we even managed to spot dolphins from the living room window with binoculars. Fab! Feeding the ducks every day was fun with our grandson. Swimming pool was excellent although booking system was a little ad hoc. Overall we had an great stay.

  • "Beautiful property and space."

    No alternative to a hot duvet, on a warm Northumbrian week. If you are trying to be environmentally friendly maybe less grass mowing and weed killers and more allowing the wild flowers to grow.

  • "We had a wonderful holiday thank you!"

    The only feedback I have is that the curtains need black out lining it was so bright and woke everyone early in the morning. It was also tricky to get swimming spots, people had not stuck to the rules! Only through asking a member of staff were we able to get a morning slot. Thanks would defo book again!

  • "Grateful that an early check in granted for a vulnerable adult in our party."

    Would have appreciated more mugs etc as we had to put dishwasher on frequently to accommodate. Also only enough logs to light the log burner on one evening for a week’s seemed ungenerous , though the property was warm with central heating would have preferred to switch heating down and enjoy the burner . The one thing which did cause major issues was that the soundproofing was poor : the main bedroom downstairs was lovely and spacious ,but sleep was disturbed as could even hear people turning over in bed in the bedroom upstairs ,not to mention footfall going to bathroom !

  • "Great cottage, very well brought together."

    Excellent facilities, would easily recommend. Factual inaccuracies. This property is NOT 20mins walk to beach. Bigger mugs would be perfect. Mattress cover as a plastic sheet is sweaty, something better would be in line with a high spec cottage. Thank you for looking after us, we will be back.

  • "Lovely cottage in a gorgeous spot."

    Well equipped and the beead, mik etc on arrival was a nice touch. The pool booking system really spoilt our holiday unfortunately as all the morning slots were taken for the week by the time we got there so we could only get middle of the day meaning planning a day out wasn't possible. Also 5 x 1hr slots doesn't feel much when you've paid such a lot. Also the check in and out times were quite unreasonable at 5pm and 9.30am. Much more used to around a 3pm check in and 10/11am check out which would have felt more fair given the price we paid.

    Great base for exploring Northumberland, we are hoping to book again for next Summer.

  • "A really lovely cottage."

    Very well equipped and extremely comfortable. The swimming pool was much appreciated and it was always warm and clean. The walk to Embleton bay is a good 20 minutes but worth the effort. This is a great base to enjoy this part of Northumberland.

  • "Lovely cottage and wonderful pool."

    Great location. Responded well to issues. It would be helpful to say bring matches for the stove. We nearly slipped and fell over on a patch of the living room floor that was very slippery. No kitchen essentials not even salt and pepper. Kit very small for 6 people. They need to think about large baking dishes/pans. It's a bit much asking people to fill the dishwasher, strip the beds and dispose of all rubbish before 9.30am. And to arrive after 4pm. We've paid for the day and just got the evening. When we found the recycling there were no facilities for paper and card. This would have been useful info.

  • "Would definitely recommend this holiday accommodation to families and couples alike, wonderful place, and now you get the pool to yourselves for an hour I would say its even better."

    Tho most of the cottages were booked you hardly ever saw anyone so lovely and peaceful. The walk down to the beach is beautiful but whoever said it was 10 minutes is really exaggerating, its at least 30 minutes and could be tricky with a pushchair if its not good weather, but totally worth it. The only little niggles were that the dining chairs were very uncomfortable most of them felt like you were dropping through them and could do with replacing and the two double beds are as hard as iron and very creaky and could do with replacing. Having said that, will definitely be back as we had a fantastic experience and the location is fabulous and well done on making us feel really safe on the first week back for you after lockdown, your staff are to be congratulated.

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.
