My Family and I have just returned from the most stress free relaxing break we have ever experienced in the Uk,mainly because the owner of poppy cottage Clare has invested a great deal of time and effort ensuring that the needs of all her guests are met from start to finish.
This very clean well equipped gem of a cottage in the most beautiful location a few minutes walk to the stunning Embleton beach,with great places to eat in the village and close by,we particularly liked The joiners Arms which is such a treat after a walk along the beach towards Newton-by-the-sea.
Thank you Clare,I have found my Mary Portas of the North East !!!! We have already booked our next visit.

This is a lovely, well equipped, cosy, spotlessly clean and charming place to stay. We loved staying here. The house is set in a fantastic location for exploring Embleton and the wider area of Northumberland. We had beautiful long beach walks. Embleton has 3 pubs/restaurants but we only went to one during this stay, The Grays, for a drink. This was cosy and friendly . Don't hesitate, Poppy Cottage will not disappoint.

“Perfection”
Reviewed 17 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

A beautifully appointed cottage,the best equipped we have ever stayed in.clean,cosy,comfortable and lovely and warm with radiators and fire.good wi if and tv signal.plenty of hot water,fluffy towels,comfy bed.
Clare has thought of everything you might need and the welcome basket is lovely to find after a long drive...we had fresh bacon and egg sandwiches Clare had even remembered the butter!
The remote control blind in the bedroom keeps a gadget man happy!!. The cottage looks smaller on the photos,but is like a tardis once instead with upstairs rooms of very good size.even has coffee machine so don't forget your beans!.
Holy island is appx 30 mins away,Alnwick 10 mins away with a sainsburys,aldi and petrol station with co op.
Craster has a lovely fish restaurant.also 20 min walk along beach to Newton which also has a nice pub.embleton itself has a small shop,and an Italian that does a good lunch deal..take a look in the church which is lovely inside.
Really enjoyed our stay and we'll done to Clare...have paid a lot more for previous cottages in Scotland who didn't even provide a welcome tray!!

“Perfect base for exploring beautiful coast”
Reviewed 5 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

A really comfortable property in the centre of Embleton. Clare thought of everything for our comfort including the best ever welcome pack that even included a treat for our dog. There is a good and diverse selection of local pubs but our favourite was the Greys Inn because it was so enormously dog friendly. We loved the area - absolutely beautiful and the cottage is close to the sandy beach with its splendid view of Dunstanburgh castle and coastal walk to Craster. We spent the entire week finding new walks - there is so much to see and so much wildlife. We will certainly be coming back!
