    “This was a lovely cottage in a superb location with a great hot tub.”

    We had a wonderful stay enhanced by the fabulous weather! We really appreciated the welcome pack and the supplies of tea, milk and oj. We felt that it would have been better to have had salt and pepper as basic condiments provided. If I was to be picky I would say that the curtains need to be black out ones as during the summer months it is very light and difficult to sleep. As the cottage is for 4 people it would better to have 2 sets of cutlery and crockery for each person to make best use ...

As the cottage is for 4 people it would better to have 2 sets of cutlery and crockery for each person to make best use of the dishwasher. There was one white wine glass missing from the inventory when we arrived.

    Thank you for your feedback. We could go on forever trying to put things that people call basic items into the cottages we are self catering and we do provide you with things to get you started while you wait on your order being delivered or till you get to the shop to get your supplies for the week. We follow Sykes guidelines and you don’t have to have double the number of cutlery, crockery etc, we do provide 6 of everything and washing up liquid so that you can wash by hand if needed. Housekeeping checked on the morning you left and there was an extra wine glass rather than 1 been missing so it has been corrected now. 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 £150.

About the location

EMBLETON

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.

Please Note: This property will only accept a check in on a Saturday.

Swimming pool bookings cannot be made prior to arrival.
