We stayed for a 5 night break, couldn't have asked for more - easy booking process and great value for money. Lovely location in Embleton, with lots of nearby attractions and things to do and all the essentials within the village a stone's throw away. The ideal base to explore Northumberland area. Cottage itself was just what we needed, well furnished, clean and quiet - ideal for relaxing after a day out

“Fantastic week at Crocus Cottage”
Reviewed 18 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This cottage is spotlessly clean very comfortable and comfy . It is very well equiped in the kitchen for cooking meals and is in easy reach to the beach also a good base for travelling around the Northumberland Coast with its beautiful beaches . I would highly recommend this cottage as it gives a first class standard.

“A Must Stay...”
Reviewed 23 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We wanted to have a couple of days away and chose Crocus Cottage as the reviews on here were really positive and we weren't disappointed!! The cottage was spotless and well equipped and its location was just perfect to explore the village of Embleton or stroll down to the beach.
There was no issue with us having the dog with us and there was ample parking outside the cottage so we didn't have to park out on the street.

I'd recommend this property to anyone and will certainly be going back again soon!

“Great cottage, well equipped in excellent location”
Reviewed 24 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We have just stayed in crocus cottage for the Easter break and had a great time. We took our 11 year old child and a dog with two adults. The cottage was in a great location in a court yard behind the pub with parking right in front. The cottage was small but great for our needs well equipped and very clean with everything thought of right down to hand-wash and washing up liquid which when your travelling means a lot. When we first booked our holiday dates we had to change due to the school voting day change and they were very helpful and obliging to move our dates for us.We are hoping to return as there's lots to see in the area and the cottage is about 10 minutes walk from a beautiful coastline.

“Clean and cosy”
Reviewed 14 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

A lovely little property, a perfect base to explore this beautiful part of the world. Crocus cottage had everything we needed; well equipped kitchen, comfy beds, and a great outdoor seating area where we could enjoy the sunshine. Nearby shop, park and beach made it perfect for us. I would recommend Crocus Cottage to friends and family.
