Region: Northumberland is a heady combination of fishing villages, market towns, sandy beaches, magnificent castles and historic Hadrian's Wall, tied together by beautiful countryside and abundant wildlife. Town: The pretty village of Embleton is ideal for exploring the Northumbrian Heritage Coast. It is served by four pubs, two of which serve food. Grey's Inn also has 3 open fires, making a winter pint a cosy experience. The Embleton Heritage Trails Project consists of 6 trails to help you explore the history and heritage of the village. The trails range from a short walk around Embleton to a six-mile trail that takes you into the tranquil countryside. On the yellow sand of Embleton Bay near the sand dunes is a large grey rock called 'Bathing Rock'. A little to the northwest of this is the famous 'Vanishing Rock' on which the name 'Andra Barton' is carved. Barton was a Scottish pirate, killed in a sea battle with the English in 1511. Embleton is also within easy reach of other local attractions, such as Alnwick Castle and Dunstanburgh's golf course.More

Lovely, homely cottage, especially during the chill evenings of November, the wooding-burning stove was great and cheerful. Very quiet and peaceful location, will definitely return again in late Spring when hopefully the weather will be kinder.
