Make a holiday cottage in Embleton your home away from home

If travellers desire to get away from it all, an Embleton holiday cottage is the perfect solution. A small village with less than 700 inhabitants, Embleton is located a little over 40 miles north of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, along the Northumberland coast. Here, guests will be surrounded by rugged countryside and yet still within easy reach of some of Britain’s most beautiful beaches. The village of Embleton itself is just large enough to find things to enjoy of an evening, but an ideal retreat if couples or families want time to regroup. Holiday cottages in Embleton come in many sizes, from cosy little places sleeping only two people to big, rambling houses sleeping as many as twelve. Finally, they are typically furnished to the highest standards; getting away from it all doesn’t have to mean guests need to forgo comfort, too.

Things to do

-Beaches: The beach at Embleton Bay is only about half a mile from the village, and the main reason for choosing a holiday cottage in Embleton. It’s not only a long stretch perfect for walks, but also very wide at low tide, revealing rock pools and becoming a kids’ paradise. Visitors can learn to surf here, or enjoy a spot of windsurfing or kitesurfing. The beach is incredibly clean and the water safe for swimming, even if it’s a little chilly. Best is that it’s very quiet, and there’s a good chance tourists may have the entire beach for themselves.

-Historical attractions: A dramatic sight from the beach is that of Dunstanburgh Castle, which stands sentinel on top of a hill at the southern end of the bay. Construction of the fortress started in 1313, and John of Gaunt had some improvements done more than a century later; by the 16th century, however, the castle was rapidly falling into ruin. Guests may recognise the castle from several paintings of it done by JMW Turner, best viewed from the beach. If visitors feel creative, they may want to bring a camera along; like Turner, they’ll undoubtedly want to capture the sight for posterity.

-Outdoor pursuits: An Embleton holiday farmhouse is the perfect base from which to go walking and birdwatching. The countryside is made up mostly of agricultural fields with some groves, while the beach is backed by wildflower-covered dunes. There are several walking routes visitors can take, among them the six trails of the Embleton Heritage Trails Project. Bring binoculars, because the area is home to a large variety of birds.

-Golf: If an avid golfer, be sure to bring clubs when staying in Embleton holiday cottages. The Dunstanburgh Castle Golf Club is located just behind the beach and has been around since 1900. The 18-hole course was designed by the legendary James Braid.

-Churches: In the south-western part of town stands the beautiful Church of the Holy Trinity, parts of which date from Norman times. Take some time to admire the gorgeous architecture and stained-glass windows here. Near the church is also Embleton Tower, a peel tower that was built in the late 14th century and housed the vicarage.

Weather in Embleton

Like most of Northumberland, Embleton has a cool climate. The hottest months are July and August, when average highs are only about 19°C. However, winter temperatures rarely drop below freezing. This part of Northumberland is also one of the driest regions in the UK but visitors will still need to bring good rain gear. In Embleton, there is some rain throughout the year, with an average of between 18 and 22 days in every month seeing more than 1mm of rainfall. Most rain falls in the winter months.

Travel to Embleton

The best way to reach a holiday cottage in Embleton is by car. The village is located just under 40 miles from Newcastle, where guests can hire a car and drive north along the Northumberland Coastal Route. Visitors can also travel in by bus from Newcastle, Alnwick or Berwick.

Beautiful Property

5 of 5
Was there with my husband and daughter for a long weekend in February. The apartment was beautiful, with views over the Farne Islands. The property was furnished to a high standard, was well equipped and the beds were really comfortable. The owners were very helpful and gave us plenty of information on the local area. We did lots of walking, the scenery and beaches in this part of the world are truly breathtaking. In the evenings we thoroughly enjoyed our visits to The Olde Ship Inn (just a short walk away from the apartment) and the Jolly Fisherman at Craster.
