We stayed in Poppy cottage whilst in Northumberland for a wedding at Newton Hall.
The cottage is cosy and very clean. It came well equipped with pretty much everything you could need and more! The location is great, with the beach not far and 2 pubs and a local shop within a few yards.
We very much enjoyed our stay and would go back again.
We have just got back from a 3 night stay at Poppy Cottage, and we enjoyed every second. The house is lovely, and well catered for both families or adults. My children loved the house, and we all felt really settled straight away. We could not have asked for more.
The beach is absolutely gorgeous, and about 15 minutes walk away down a quiet lane, there are even rock pools further down the beach and you can walk to Dunstanburgh Castle if you so wish.
The local area is just beautiful, we also had plenty of sunshine and I couldnt get my kids out of the sea one of the days it was so warm.
Would happily recommend Poppy Cottage and Embleton, we could have stayed a lot longer and were sad to be leaving so soon.
Stayed for 3 nights with my partner and 5 year old son, great location just a 15 min walk to the beach, lovely village and great stay in Poppy Cottage. Cottage is very comfortable and has everything you need. Clare the owner was very helpful she also provides a homemade welcome pack on arrival and extra little touches, would highly recommend staying at Poppy Cottage and hope to return in the not too distant future.

We have very much enjoyed our stay at poppy cottage. Great location for people who are walkers and explorers. We felt the cottage was a home from home experience and the welcome basket was amazing. Thanks you clare and we would definatly come again.
We were absolutely delighted with this cottage. There was home-made bread, butter, lemon curd and lemon drizzle cake; all of which were very tasty. There was enough for a cooked breakfast which was highly appreciated as an extra perk.
We were worried with cleaniness with an active baby but it was immaculately clean. It was well presented and homely.
Clare was brilliant at sorting everything we needed for our little girl. A cot, high chair and stair gate were all in place waiting for us. She even was kind enough to post something we forgot!
Clare has thought of everything from information on local restaurants and attractions to kids games, dvds to books and even binoculars for bird watching! The kitchen is well supplied with everything you would ever need. Also everything is high quality not just the cheapest.
It is well situated for the lovely sandy beaches and a quick drive to Alnwick. There are local ammenties near by too. The cottage is situated off the road and didn't hear any noise or traffic.
We had a delightful stay and would stay again if we are visiting the area again or recommended to friends and family.
Thanks for been so helpful Clare!
