Embleton is an idyllic seaside village, perfect for a coastal break. Embleton Bay shelters one of the best golden sand beaches in the country. With the ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle providing a spectacular backdrop, it’s the ultimate sun, sea and sand destination in the region. With a wide beach and shallow waters, it's a perfect spot for a family picnic or a splash in the gentle waves.

Here, you’ll be able to observe the abundance of local birds and other wildlife in their natural habitat from the comfort of one of the on-site birdwatching huts.
