Located in the centre of Embleton, this stunning cottage is a perfect base for those who enjoy golfing and walking holidays and offers beautiful views and easy beach access.

This two-bedroom cottage is packed full of character. Once the site of the house of Embleton's Quarry Master, it was constructed using the local Whinstone from which it derives its name, providing the property with a rich history and nature all of its own. Overlooking the entire village, this property offers incredible sea views from the rear of the cottage, reaching down towards the beach and golf course at Dunstanburgh. The village acts as a perfect base for walkers, and if you stroll down the one-mile country track, taking you past the golf club, you'll emerge onto blue seas and gorgeous beaches. Everything you need is within reach, including cuisine from around the world! Just seconds from the front door sits Sambuca, an authentic Italian restaurant offering mouth-watering food at extremely reasonable prices.

Enter the single-storey cottage and be greeted by a traditional stone flagged hallway, leading into a lounge full of light and space. This openness gives the cottage a light, airy atmosphere, which is only enhanced by the stunning sea views. Enjoy cosy nights in, with a sofa and two easy chairs, a multitude of books, and an original stone chimney breast complete with a wood burner situated in the feature fireplace, all creating a relaxing ambience and rustic touch. Prepare a delicious meal in the handy kitchen, fully equipped with table and chairs, fridge/freezer, gas hob, electric oven, microwave, dishwasher, and a washing machine. Touches of original period features are everywhere, from the antique dining table to the grandfather clock in the entrance hall. As this property is all on one level, you'll also find the two bedrooms further down the hall, a king-size master bedroom and the smaller single room, as well as a spacious bathroom with steps down into, complete with a shower over the bath and WC.

From the lounge, French doors open out onto a private enclosed garden bordered by a small fence and complete with a bench, ideal for relaxing on a summer's evening or taking in the spectacular sea views.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The location was perfect but as we already know Embleton well this was no surprise. The cottage was nice but lacking in sufficient amenities compared to other holiday cottages we have stayed in.

Lovely place to stay with very comfortable and pleasant sitting room. Easy walk to the sea and beautiful view from the garden. Small kitchen though big enough for three of us to eat in. Second bedroom had its own lavatory which was great for three adults sharing. Not smart or super clean but relaxed and great having the books.

Lovely cottage, comfortable and dog friendly. Some reviewers have commented that the decor is tired - true to an extent but this doesn't impact on comfort and is no bad thing with dogs (or kids for that matter!). Fabulous views, about 15 mins walk from the beach and a dog friendly local pub with good food just across the road. Would go back.

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.
