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.

A homemade Cake to greet us was scrummy and wine and milk very welcome. Lots of space in the house with everything you could need for 6 adults 2 children and 4 dogs.2 min walk to a sandy beach and crashing wave beach straight opposite. Perfect. It was too cold to use the terrace even with the piles of throws left for guests to use. A shame as it looked ideal to have a sundowner whilst watching the sea. I'd love to come back in the summer but recommend it for any time of year.

The website pictures are great but we were still surprised just how spacious and well designed the property was. The living area is open planned with lots of light particularly from the huge picture window looking out to the sea. In the evening though was very cosy with log fire burning. The kitchen was probably the most well equipped I've ever known in a holiday rental and was so useful to have the separate utility room to wash sandy clothes. Good sized bedrooms and lovely bathrooms for 3 couples but would be great for families too especially with the brilliant rumpus room. The location was perfect for lovely walks on the beach and easy drives to Seahouses and surrounding areas. Our hosts were easy to reach for any questions and couldn't be more helpful and accommodating. Can't recommend this property highly enough. Thanks Lucinda and Guy for such a relaxing and wonderful stay.

Just across the road,over the golf course,there is a public footpath to a lovely little beach.Our little dog was in heaven,long walks over lots of different beaches and a fire to sleep in front of when we got back.A lovely welcoming touch was that the fires were laid ready to just put a match to when we arrived! Instantly felt relaxed. Very well equipped and a walk up to Seahouses if you fancy a takeaway or eating out. Highly recommended .
