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.

Countryfile Magazine awarded Embleton Bay Beach of the Year!

This two bedroom cottage is full of quirk and character. Built using the local Whinstone (hence the name) it was once the Quarry Master’s house in Embleton. Set on a high point in the centre of the village, Whinstone Cottage offers lovely sea views from the rear of the cottage across the gardens and down towards Dunstanburgh beach and links golf course. Embleton is a great base for walking and the Telegraph newspaper wrote an article highlighting the joys of walking in the area. You can walk to the beach which is about one mile away down a country track and past the golf club. Just moments from the cottage you will find a lovely italian restaurant called Sambuca, with very reasonable prices and delicous food you might just find yourself here more than once!

Once inside the cottage, a stone flagged hallway leads to a light and spacious living room which has wooden floors and views towards the sea. There is an original, stone chimney breast housing a log burning stove and plenty of books in most rooms, ideal for cosy nights in. The owners have not furnished this cottage in a modern style - it is in fact, furnished in keeping with the character and age of the property - from the grandfather clock that greets you in the hall to the original antique wooden kitchen table so, if you love a bit of old-fashioned character, then you will love Whinstone Cottage.

Please Note: A new Fischer Smart Heating System has been installed in the cottage which is fully controllable in each individual room, making Whinstone Cottage a warm and cosy option all year round.

This cottage accepts two well behaved dogs.

We loved this cottage. Warm, cosy, excellent location in lovely village and, possibly best of all, with good furniture and paintings and books. No shiny pine fittings or jolly mottoes. This really matters to some people. It felt loved and personal which lent a delightful atmosphere and was much appreciated.

Charming cottage in a wonderful location, a village opposite a pub, overlooking the sea and only twenty minutes away from the beach. Evenings were warm and cosy in front of the wood burner.

If you’re looking for a seaside holiday with a difference, visit Northumberland – a region brimming with beautiful golden, sandy beaches, rolling hills, craggy moorland, bustling market towns and fishing villages, and more castles than in any other county in England.

Situated in the North East of England, this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty boasts no less than 39 miles of unspoilt coastline to explore and a calendar packed with exhilarating water sports options. To indulge in a spot of surfing, kayaking or powerboating, take a trip to one of the many breath-taking Northumberland beaches - where dogs love a good walk and fresh local seafood is never far away.

Home to the awe-inspiring Cheviot Hills and the historical Hadrian’s Wall, the Northumberland National Park is renowned for its open spaces, award-winning Dark Skies and stunning rural backdrops - and is the least populated national park in Britain. Offering access to challenging hikes, horse-riding, rock-climbing and a multitude of other action-packed activities, the park is one of the region’s greatest draws.

There is a huge range of spectacular wildlife and sea life waiting to be sighted, whether you take a boat ride to the Farne Islands to admire the colony of Atlantic grey seals and puffins, or explore the Kielder Water and Forest Park, home to magnificent ospreys. If it’s history you’re looking for, the imposing Bamburgh Castle and the world-famous Alnwick Castle are undoubtedly worth a visit.

Alternatively, if you’re seeking the bright lights of a city adventure, Newcastle upon Tyne is the place to go. Here, you can experience world-class culture, outstanding attractions, superb shopping, impressive live shows, top entertainers and delicious cuisine in abundance.
