The cottage is located in a quiet courtyard next to the Dunstanburgh Castle Hotel, which was great as we ate there every night of our stay. The cottage itself was lovely with a quaint wee front garden. Milk, tea,coffee etc. there on our arrival - a lovely touch. The cottage had everything you could need, was clean and spacious.

We stayed at Periwinkle cottage for a week in March 2017 and enjoyed every minute. Set in a quiet courtyard with great amenities very close by, pub, restaurant and shop a short walk away. The view of the sea and Dunstanburgh Castle from the top of Sea Lane was a perfect start to our holiday. The cottage is spotlessly clean...

About the neighbourhood
The village of Embleton is one of Northumberland's true gems. Why not try the wonderfully traditional village pub - The Greys Inn, or try out the Dunstanburgh Castle Hotel, which shares the courtyard with Periwinkle Cottage. The award winning Embleton Bay is a ten minute stroll away, with its beautiful sandy beach that seems to stretch for miles. Just before you reach the dunes you'll see Dunstanburgh Castle Golf Club, which boasts a traditional 18 hole links course with views that simply cannot be beaten. There is also a bar and restaurant in the club which are open to the public. The village has a small shop and post office and for the younger ones there is a delightful, well-equipped and modern play area in the village.<BR><BR>Such is the beauty of the location of th... more
