“Fabulous!”
Reviewed January 17, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Had a lovely few days in this gorgeous little cottage. Was warm, cosy & had everything we needed. Was very doggy friendly as had enclosed garden. Gorgeous little village, great super doggy friendly pub and the local beach was perfect. Let down by the weather but everything else was perfect and will def book again.

“Brilliant stay”
Reviewed April 11, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

7 of us booked into the 2 bed cottages, sofa beds were ample for 3 of the family members. Well equipped cottage but and it's a small one - the table only had 4 chairs which when your all eating together was a bit of a problem. Excellent location, would definately visit again but perhaps not as many of us next time

Whilst our 2 bed cottages can sleep up to 8 its often more advantageous to take The Old Police House with 3 bedrooms.

“What a brilliant cottage!”
Reviewed January 23, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We had a lovely week in Embleton. The cottage is a great size; very comfortable, warm (it was January afterall), well laid out and with everything you might need for a week's stay. It is also in a great position to explore the area; only about 8 miles from Alnwick and 20 or so from the Breamish Valley - which has some beautiful walking. I would very highly recommend these cottages

“Perfect cottage”
Reviewed January 29, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We have just spent a lovely winter break at this cottage. It was so warm and inviting and very well equipped. The beds are huge and very comfortable. The village itself is charming and, although the Hotel was closed for the winter, the Grey's Inn was baby and dog friendly and provided a very nice evening meal. In addition, there is a local shop for basic food shopping. The cottage owners were kind and helpful and quickly replaced a missing kitchen item.
