    The cottage was one of the most well equipped properties we have ever stayed in and the owners went above and beyond to assist us during our stay. The garden is a proper sun trap. Would highly recommend and look forward to visiting again in the future.

  • "The bungalow property is absolutely fabulous and is in a great location."

    The property is only 5 years old, and to us, it seemed like a new showhome! It has been tastefully furnished and the bedding, towels etc are top quality.The air source heat pump used for central heating is very effective so the house is nice and warm in the coldest of weather. It has a lovely private south facing rear garden which will come into its own in the summer months. Also, the property owners are very thoughtful and have made available all sorts of books, guides, games, DVDs etc to make your stay more pleasurable - as well as a rather nice welcome pack. We will definitely return to The Haven!

  • "This is a relatively new build property, beautifully appointed and the kitchen was well stocked with a variety of pans and trays."

    Lovely to see a property run so eco conscious with ASHP as alternative energy supply. Bedrooms of a good size and comfortable. One point to note that although this is on one floor it may not be appropriate for people with mobility issues - the bathrooms were gorgeous but there were no handles on the baths etc.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We would like to point out for the benefit of future guests, that the en suite bathroom has a large walk in shower with only a small, approximately 2 inch step to get in, and we do provide non slip bath mats for both bathrooms.

  • "The Haven is a wonderful property in a fantastic location."

    The Haven was spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable with quality furnishings. The owners left a really nice welcome pack which was much appreciated and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals and again all kitchen equipment was good quality and clean. The location was perfect for exploring the Northumberland coastline and the beach was within easy walking distance. We are hoping to book again for next year as 1 week was not long enough.

    We were a little disappointed that we potentially couldn't gain access initially until 5pm but requested a text when we could gain entry and could do so after 3pm. Perhaps a similar offer could be made to others.

    It was a good size, clean, well stocked and not littered with ‘must do’ instructions. There was private parking spaces for several cars. The Haven lived up to it’s name and was also well situated for touring Northumberland (and beyond).

  • "An excellent warm, quiet and comfortable bungalow, which, to be honest, we could not fault."

    The kitchen was very well equipped with utensils and crockery as if the owners expect visitors to cook at home regularly rather than eating out. The air flow heat pump surprised us by how efficient it was and whilst taking a little longer to heat up than a conventional system , achieved a comfortable heat throughout. There was good information about local places of interest, restaurants and services as well as about the household appliances. We would definitely think about returning next time we go back to Embleton.

    It was like walking into a new home, spotlessly clean, superbly and comfortably furnished and equipped, bright and spacious and a pleasure to be in. The owners have given so much attention to small details, too. Maps and guide books, games and books, toiletries, everything you could need in the kitchen, large barbecue in the garden, children's beach toys etc etc. Embleton is a lovely little village to stay in, and just a short, easy walk - about 20 minutes - from the bungalow to Embleton Beach - a fantastic, scenic and sandy beach. There is a friendly local pub, and it's a great base for exploring other places, too. This is a great place to holiday in, lots to do and see, and we shall certainly return to The Haven!

    Thank you for your feedback. As a result of your comments about the heating we checked the settings on the heating and found that they had, unbeknown to us, been altered somehow. As you pointed out the heating would have appeared to have been on or off, as the morning settings had been turned off and the afternoon/ evening temperature was set very high. We have now reset the time and temperature settings and would not expect further problems. We would like to inform guests that if they have any problems whilst staying at The Haven we are happy for them to contact us on the emergency contact details in the information folder and we will then have the opportunity to rectify the problem at the time.

    The Haven is very well positioned in the charming village of Embleton and close to the lovely coastal route with Warkworth, Dunstanburgh and Bamburgh castles nearby. Glorious beaches, quiet roads, numerous great eating places abound. However, if you prefer more ‘biz’ then Seahouses beckons with its amusement arcades, fish & chip shops and trips to the Farne Islands for bird & seal watching. Many National Trust properties to visit, should the weather be inclement and Morpeth and Newcastle close-by for retail therapy. The Haven is well-named and with three bedrooms and en-suite + family bathroom very suitable for parties of six, or equally good just for two. Can’t wait to return.

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.
