Good location in Embleton and close to Alnwick attractions. Cottage was clean & kitchen was well-equipped. A nice place to stay when you need two bedrooms and want to be on your own.

Overall cottage good although bathroom shower areain need of update. Would benefit from gate being fitted to be classed as dog friendly like cottage next door and also blind in lounge to give a better degree of privacy from hotel staff/residents looking out of top window, or outside when having smoke.

Great location in Embleton, a very pretty village with great pubs and an Italian restaurant! Beach in walking distance - lots of nearby places to visit! Cottage was excellent ! Very clean with everything provided - price also included heating and electric which was such a bonus! It was so cosy and warm ! Our dogs loved their time there and it was so good to find this cottage and such dog friendly areas nearby. The decor was very tasteful and modern ! We would give our stay 10 out of 10 and cannot wait to visit again ! Thank you so much Cosy Reatreats !

the cottage is brilliantly located. Right in the middle of the village, within walking distance of shops, pubs and the sea. Very pleasant walk on the beach to the famous Ship pub with a fantastic meal in the local village. The locals in the Greys pub are very welcoming. The cottage is clean and as everything you need

In a great location to visit local attractions including Alnwick, Seahouses, Warkworth, Lindisfarne and Alnmouth. Accommodation good - was 'cosy' with four of us but great for a week. All equipment available in kitchen as described. Wifi available which was good.
