Lynecroft has been refurbished in 2019 and now provides contemporary and immaculately furnished self-catering accommodation. The L-shaped property gives living space at one end and all bedrooms at the other. Conveniently all on ground floor, the spacious dining kitchen is well appointed with bi-folding doors enhancing the natural light which leads to a large enclosed garden; an excellent spot to dine al fresco and for children and dogs to play. There is a cosy gas fire in the living room and all three double bedrooms are beautifully presented. The master bedroom enjoys an en-suite shower room and there is a family bathroom too.
A friendly greeting awaits visitors to Embleton where there is a local shop, garage and pubs serving food. A short walk brings you to a wide sweep of golden sands which was awarded ‘Beach of the Year’ in 2017 at the BBC Countryfile Magazine Awards. A short drive north brings you to the coastal village of Beadnell where the huge expanse of golden sandy beach is popular with watersports enthusiasts. Sea kayaking, coasteering, kite surfing and diving can be arranged here during the season. The traditional fishing village of Seahouses is a further 2 miles up the coastline where there is a supermarket and several places to eat. Boat trips to the Farne Islands depart regularly. Bamburgh is renowned for its majestic castle and sweep of golden sandy beach. Heading a few miles south of Embleton is the pretty coastal village of Alnmouth and a short drive inland is the historic market town of Alnwick where there is a larger selection of shops and restaurants. Alnwick Castle and Garden are popular visitor attractions.

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.
