The Northumberland region


The village of Embleton is one of Northumberland's true gems. Why not try the wonderfully traditional village pub - The Greys Inn, or try out the Dunstanburgh Castle Hotel, which shares the courtyard with Crocus Cottage. The award winning Embleton Bay is a ten minute stroll away, with its beautiful sandy beach that seems to stretch for miles. Just before you reach the dunes you'll see Dunstanburgh Castle Golf Club, which boasts a traditional 18 hole links course with views that simply cannot be beaten. There is also a bar and restaurant in the club which are open to the public. The village has a small shop and post office and for the younger ones there is a delightful, well-equipped and modern play area in the village.

Such is the beauty of the location of this lovely village, there is much that can be done without going anywhere near your car. A gentle stroll up the coast will bring you to the delightful village of Low Newton with its renowned pub, The Ship Inn (which has its own microbrewery!) and picturesque bay. To the south of Embleton it is just a short stroll to the magnificient ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle and continuing past you will soon arrive in the village of Craster, with its harbour and world famous kippers!

Many thanks for taking the time to submit feedback regarding your stay in Crocus Cottage. I find it strange that you say that there was no heating on and the cottage was cold when you arrived as I made an 80 mile round trip on the day of your arrival to warm the cottage up and leave the heating on for you. The heat was quite overpowering when I left so I turned all the heaters down to no.2 but left them on. This was at 12.30pm in anticipation of the early check-in that you requested and that I was happy to agree to. I'm sure if you arrived later than the 3pm check-in you requested the cottage will have been less cosy than both of us would have liked, however, I timed my visit to correspond to your requested arrival time. I will have the fan heater looked at right away, but you could of course have contacted me about this during your stay if it was a problem (my number is on one of the 'many' notices around the cottage) instead of saving it up to complain about on Trip Advisor. With regards to the cottage being 'covered' in dos and don'ts lists 'everywhere you looked' - there are actually two notices - one by the cooker hood and one by the door. We have found that our guests appreciate knowing how to reset the cooker if the power goes off, how the shower works and where the nearest payphone is in case of emergencies. We always welcome feedback from our guests and we aim to do everything we can to ensure that our guests' stays are as comfortable and relaxed as possible. Whilst the majority of the feedback we have had so far suggests that we are succeeding in this aim, we certainly don't take this for granted and always act on credible feedback to further improve the quality of the product we offer. Kind regards, John Cosy Retreats
