“Fantastic cottage our second visit”
Reviewed 27 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Clare has a fantastic cottage in agreat location. A short walk to stunning beaches plus a couple of decent pubs nearby make this the ideal base for exploring the Northumberland Coast and towns.
The little touches of a fantastic welcome basket plus a gift for each of my daughters (which they recieved with glee) all adds to what is already a welcoming home from home.
We will defiantly return and have already recommended to family and friends.

“Spotless”

Spotlessy clean little place in a great location as close to 3 differenct pubs and only a 10 minute walk through a golf course to a gorgeous bay and sandy beach with views of Dunstaburgh Castle and another short walk onto the lovely Ship Inn at Low Newton. Embleton was a great base for exploring other parts of the area by car as well.
The welcome pack left by Clare was a nice touch and the facilities offered for a our 9 month old baby such as child gates were good as well. Finally Clare was very helpful, she even posted a book that belonged to our baby back to us after we left it in the cottage without charging us or even waiting for us to ask her - she clearly cares about looking after her customers.

“A perfect place to celebrate a birthday & enjoy the coastal walks!”
Reviewed 22 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This cottage was an ideal location for exploring Northumberland. Clare was there to welcome us. She drew our attention to a welcome pack with delicious food and information about the cottage and local area but didn't hassle us with rules and regulations about our stay. Our little dog had his own welcome pack and he loved the little enclosed patio and the nearby beach. We can highly recommend Poppy Cottage which is equipped to a high standard and tastefully decorated. Conveniently situated in Embleton village close to a local shop, hotel with restaurant, friendly pub and an Italian restaurant.

“Perfect”
Reviewed 17 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Poppy Cottage is an excellent place to stay for visiting the lovely Northumberland coast. It is equipped to a high standard and looked after with obvious care and attention to detail. The welcome basket was amazing. I cannot think of anything negative about the property and we would definitely stay here again.

“Fabulous, well equipped, comfortable and sparkly clean”
Reviewed 10 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

What a beautiful little cottage! It had absolutely everything we needed and looked as if it had been decorated by a professional interior designer. The bathroom with its underfloor heating was luxurious and the entire place was spotless. The welcome pack was a lovely touch. I would unreservedly recommend Poppy Cottage.
