  • "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.

  • "We had a wonderful week in Stable D’or, well equipped cottage with lovely views, we loved using the pool most days and the kids enjoyed the play park onsite."

    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.

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.
