Description

Set in the centre of Embleton, this stone-built, terraced holiday cottage is ideally located for exploring the magnificent Heritage Coast. Embleton Bay was once voted the most romantic bay in the north and this small village with pubs, village shop and children’s play park, is near some fantastic tourist spots. Craster is steeped in tradition and centred on the ‘picture-postcard’ harbour, where visitors should try the smoked Craster Kippers from the smokery (one of the oldest in England) or the local pub. The coastal path from the harbour along to Dunstanborough Castle is one of the prettiest walks in the county. Alnwick with its majestic castle and gardens, cobbled streets and abundance of eateries and pubs is 8 miles away and Seahouses, where boat trips to the Farne Islands and fabulous fish and chips can be enjoyed, just 7 miles away. Rothbury and Cragside Hall are just 19 miles away, and Holy Island is 26 miles (remember to check the tide times for crossing the causeway). Beach 1 mile. Shop 100 yards, pub and restaurant 300 yards.

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.
