Great location, well maintained, well equipped and comfortable cottage. Perfect base for exploring and nice enough to spend the day in if the weather drives you inside

Great location for accessing local attractions. Very friendly pub round the corner. However, the frequent passage of high speed trains, sometimes two at a time, was very disturbing. Like an earthquake. It shook the chair and rattled the glasses. The enclosed garden is not accessible directly from the house, so was inconvenient with a dog.

Newton Halt North is set in a small quiet village about one and a half miles from Embleton but, because they have the road closed for construction traffic this now means you have to go a further half mile along the road and back on yourself making it a two and a half miles instead.

Popular Seahouses, known to many as ‘the village by the sea', is the ideal location for a seaside holiday or short break in Northumberland. This picturesque coastal village is an excellent base from which to explore the whole of the Northumberland Coast and countryside.

Famed for its picturesque harbour and panoramic views of the spectacular Farne Islands, the bustling fishing village of Seahouses features everything you would expect from a seaside holiday and more. All the beaches in the area are dog-friendly, while there is also a huge range of spectacular wildlife and sea life waiting to be sighted. For the adventurous, there are breath-taking coastal paths to trek or scuba diving to enjoy and for those interested in local history, there is a broad spectrum of historical landmarks to discover nearby including the magnificent castles of Bamburgh and Alnwick.

There are boats trips taking visitors to see the spectacular wildlife habitats on the Farne Islands all year round. But if you’d rather stay on land there is Bamburgh Castle Golf Club, one of the most scenic golf courses in Britain, or guided walking tours of the beautiful coast to indulge in. Helping to maintain the character of the village, the variety of independent shops provides a unique shopping experience as well as a great opportunity to get your hands on some delicious local produce.
