The cottage has all you need in a place that is an ideal base for walking along the coast...Newton by the sea...Craster...Dunstanburgh castle...the beautiful unspoilt beach of embleton ...the village has 3 different places to eat 4 if you count the golf club...traditional Pub..a chain Italian restaurant/pub ..and a traditional hotel. We ate at all of them ..all offering something different ...you can even take your dog in 2 of them!! (the italian place didn't allow canine guests) all this from the comfort of the cottage .

We had an excellent stay in this lovely quiet cottage. The cottage was clean, well equipped and comfortable. It is located in the heart of the village which has plenty to offer all year round. It proved to be a relaxing break in a beautiful part of the world.

“Convenient place to stay”
Reviewed 16 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Periwinkle Cottage is in a small courtyard next to the Dunstanburgh Castle Hotel in Embleton. The hotel bar and food are handy as is the GreysInn in the village. a walk of about half a mile will get you to Embleton golf Club and the excellent beach from where you can walk to Dunstanburgh Castle or to Low Newton by the Sea.
The cottage has one large kitchen / dining/ living room downstairs and a double and a twin bedded room plus bathroom with shower upstairs. It is carpettd throughout is all electric and fully equipped to a high standard with all you need for a short break. The beds are comfortable and clean as was the entire house. Good for two couples or a family of four. Parking provided. There is also a shop and petrol station and more free parking in the village.
