Furrow Cottage is named after the pasture field it overlooks and is beautifully presented throughout. With much thought, care and attention to detail this delightful, semi-detached cottage enjoys a bright, airy and homely ambience throughout. There is a welcoming wood burner in the living room ensuring a cosy welcome awaits guests regardless of the season. This lovely room enjoys uninterrupted rural views to the west and opens onto the immaculate kitchen. A separate dining room, overlooking the rear garden, adds to the comfort and there is the added convenience of a smart shower room on the ground floor too. Both double bedrooms are on the first floor, en-suite bathroom to the master bedroom, and also enjoy lovely open views. The twin bedroom looks to the west; a gorgeous spot to watch the sun sink, whereas the double bedroom looks east with a glimpse of the sea on the horizon. There is a large wrap around garden mainly laid lawned, creating an idyllic spot to dine al fresco or watch children and your dog at play.

Furrow Cottage is located less than a mile south of the friendly village of Embleton where there are local facilities including a shop, garage and pubs serving food.

The town offers a wide array of facilities including restaurants, shops and a cinema/playhouse. Visitors will enjoy the experience of Barter Books, one of the UK’s largest second hand bookshops. Take time to visit Alnwick Garden, a spectacular interpretation of a formal garden including the grand cascade waterfall and restaurant within the largest tree house in Europe!

About the local area

Craster is a small fishing village on the Northumberland coast and famous as the home of the Craster Kipper, a smoked fish exported to food lovers across the country. It has a small and attractive harbour and offers a view northwards along the rocky shore to the spectacular ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle.

Dramatic Dunstanburgh Castle was built at a time when relations between King Edward II and his most powerful baron, Earl Thomas of Lancaster, had become openly hostile. Lancaster began the fortress in 1313, and the latest archaeological research carried out by English Heritage indicates that he built it on a far grander scale than was hitherto recognised, perhaps more as a symbol of his opposition to the king than as a military stronghold.

This area is very popular with walkers and there are an abundance of footpaths to explore. The third stage of the Northumberland coastal path route starts in the village, heading north past the dramatic ruins of windswept Dunstanburgh Castle and onto the golden sands of Embleton Bay, keeping a lookout for the famous 'Andra Barton Rock'. Past the beach huts and on to picturesque Low Newton by the Sea, with it's village square and the Ship Inn, a perfect place to stop for well earned food and refreshments. Then to the vast expanse of Beadnell Bay and the village of Beadnell beyond, finally ending-up in the bustling holiday town of Seahouses, gateway to the Farne Islands.

Three miles up the coast from Craster is the village of Embleton, about half-a-mile from the beautiful bay which carries its name. The sandy beach is backed by dunes where a variety of flowers bloom: bluebells, cowslips, burnet roses and, to give it its common name, bloody cranesbill, amongst others.

Golfers can enjoy a good 18-hole links golf course overlooking the beautiful Embleton Bay.
