Situated on the grounds of a 5-acre estate on the fringes of the charming coastal village of Embleton, find pure peace and tranquillity at this enchanting cottage with scenic woodland and orchard walks beginning from the doorstep. Magnificent rooms and views combine to create a stunning setting for a holiday in Northumberland. This is the ultimate romantic couples retreat for those craving an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Elegant furnishings and Rennie Mackintosh-inspired décor adorning the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner create a truly warming ambience that invites you to make special memories with your loved one. Cuddle up on the cushy sofa in front of the calming crackles of the roaring wood burner, which is housed inside an impressive fireplace. Rustle up a tasty meal in the kitchen to be enjoyed with a glass of something chilled while seated around the superb, stylish dining table. When you can’t resist the call of bedtime, head upstairs to retire to the en-suite king-size bedroom that features wonderful views overlooking the treetops and everything you need for a dreamy slumber before tomorrow’s adventure. Soak up the last of the evening’s sunshine by dining alfresco on the decked terrace before enjoying a moonlit stroll across the 5 acres of shared woodland around the estate.

The estate’s magnificent grounds on the outskirts of the medieval village of Embleton boasts countless sun-dappled footpaths to explore from the doorstep. Nestled on the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the shadow of ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle, spend hours building sandcastles or walking the dunes teeming with wildlife of Embleton Bay, set just under 1.5 miles away. If you fancy practising your swing, there’s also an 18-hole golf course behind Embleton Bay. The charming market town of Alnwick, home to some fabulous local shops and restaurants and a stunning castle, can be reached within 8.5 miles.

This place is a real gem in every way. The property is in a perfect location, quiet, peaceful, close to nature (you'll probably have a close encounter with a hare during your stay - he 'mows' the grass island in front of the kitchen) and only 5 minutes' walk to the three pubs (the Dunstanburgh Castel Hotel has a great beer garden) and excellent shRead moreop (post office/farm shop/delicatessen/general store). The walk into Embleton is down a quiet road where drivers take care approaching walkers and cyclists. You can be on Embleton beach (which is lovely) after a 25-minute walk or, via Dunstan Steads, it's an easy walk to Dunstanburgh Castle (about 45 minutes). The property is immaculately clean and beautifully furnished and equipped with great inside and outside space. You also have access to the owners' wonderful gardens. This must be one of the most comfortable beds I've slept on and having two full bathrooms is a real touch of luxury. A generous welcome hamper greets you as does a freshly baked loaf in the bread-maker. There are maps, guides, books on local interest, fiction, DVDs, CDs, games etc - you couldn't be better provided for. Owners (and Danny the golden retriever) make you very welcome and are on hand if you need them. Embleton itself is well located for access to all the local points of interest. One of the best places we've stayed, and we intend to return at the first opportunity. Hide

Loved the accommodation. Provided with all you could want and extras like the bread, wine and eggs. Did find the chair in the living room a challenge to get out of. But very comfy. Bed was fantastic. Thanks for a wonderful stay. Anne and husband were lovely.

Comfortable, cottage in a quiet location, just outside Embleton. Good village farm shop. About a mile or so to Embleton Bay, either through the village to Dunstanburgh Golf Club or down to Dunstan Steads; Craster village a bit further.. Friendly and helpful owners.

What a special place Shirewater is. A very warm welcome from Anne and Peter. Walking into the smell of freshly baking bread in the kitchen was the perfect start. The food hamper was beautiful. Dont miss out on Tildas eggs from the hens next door. The lodge has everything you could wish for. It was immaculately clean ( and I am very fussy!). The supRead moreer king bed was incredibly comfortable and sitting in bed with a morning cuppa looking at the distant sea view was lovely. The roll top bath in the en-suite was perfect after miles of walking on the nearby beaches and coast paths. Shirewater is a little slice of heaven. The orchard was not only bursting with the juiciest plums but masses of butterflies! The heron was fishing on the lake and the grounds are simply beautiful. Expertly landscaped to make the most of the natural environment. What an absolutely wonderful time we had. We shall be back without doubt. Hide

The property is ideally located to enjoy Northumberland. You can walk down to Embleton beach and enjoy a walk along the coastal path. Easy to drive to other locations as well. A mix of castles, beaches and walks. The property itself has a lovely layout with an open kitchen area, dining table, comfortable chairs and a TV (make smart by an AmazonRead more Firestick) and DVD player. Games, books and advice on what to do in the area (it's all there). Really enjoyable stay and the owners are really friendly and helpful. Hide

The Lodge at Shirewater was delightful. Though the booking staff at Original Cottages were very pleasant, they appeared somewhat disorganised. I asked for twin beds when booking - this request was ignored. I subsequently telephoned to repeat the request, and was assured this had been done. My client account still showed a king double. I changed toRead more twin on the account . I was not surprised on arrival at Shirewater to discover the bed made up as a double. This does not inspire confidence. Hide
