Description

Positioned just above the Dunstanburgh Castle Golf Club in the village of Embleton, with stunning views across this popular links course, to the beach and Castle beyond you’ll find 3 The Villas.

This is a much loved family holiday house - 3 storeys, beautifully furnished and equipped throughout and one of the most spectacular locations you’ll get along this part of the North Northumberland coast.

From the house it is about a half mile walk to the unspoilt beach at Embleton and walk north to Low Newton or south along the beach to the National Trust's Dunstanburgh Castle and Craster. After a walk, the golf club at Embleton provides a warm welcome and refreshments or, if you are walking further afield, The Ship Inn at Low Newton has its own micro-brewery and serves food (lobster its speciality) or the Jolly Fisherman in Craster has a lovely eating area overlooking the sea. Don't forget to try the renowned Craster Kippers from Robson's traditional smokehouse in Craster! Also only a short drive away is the market town of Alnwick, home to the Duke of Northumberland, with his Castle and Gardens, both open to the public. Following the coast north of Embleton you will find the seaside village of Seahouses, from where you may take boat trips across to the National Trust Farne Islands, and a bit further north still to Bamburgh with its iconic Castle and beach. Next stop is Holy Island - accessible only at low tide (check tide tables before visiting!) - to explore hidden beaches as well as the Castle and the ruins of the Priory.

The ideal get together house for extended families to enjoy, well situated for interest groups like golfers, birdwatchers, cyclists, photographers and walkers, or a group of friends coming together to celebrate,

Reviews

If I could award this house 6 stars I would. Everything from the position to the comfort, amenities, decor was wonderful. We had a large family party and everyone thought the same. The bedrooms were large and beds comfortable. Very sad to leave but have all said we will definitely come back. - 2nd June 2018
Our large family holiday - 7 adults and 4 children - was a great success. The arrangement of the bedrooms and bathrooms worked very well to give the families space and privacy. The outlook is superb. The short walk down to the beach is easy and the bay is wonderful. It was a great holiday. - 13th May 2018
3 The Villas is a large, comfortable, very well equipped family holiday home. The kitchen is very well provided with enough crockery and appliances etc to meet every need. For a family stay fridge and freezer space is very generous. Two sitting rooms, with TVs and sound systems means everyone can indulge their own taste. Not that we spent any time watching tv. The property's fabulous location a short walk from Embleton Bay, the dunes, golf, Dunstanburgh Castle etc. etc. provide more than adequate entertainment. This is one of the best holiday homes we have ever stayed in. - 26th September 2017
We booked the Villas to celebrate my in-laws golden wedding anniversary. A great family celebration was had by all with the added bonus of stunnings views from a beautiful house. Lovely meals were had around the big dining room table. The two reception rooms were useful but the reception room at the back of the house was the cosiest especially when the wood burning stove was on. Highly recommended and we all agreed we'd love to return again. - 15th April 2017
Exceptional accomodation provided by the owner at very short notice. Would strongly recommend it to others. - 11th December 2016
The villas is a very well appointed and tastefully furnished holiday stay. We were very comfortable and had a lovely holiday. The house has a pleasant welcoming atmosphere. There were some minor details that need attending to--- to have small waste bins in bedrooms, a kitchen unit door hanging by 1 hinge, one bedside lamp inoperative, but the overall quality of the accommodation meant these were very minor disappointments - 30th August 2016
Fantastic week, great to spend time on embleton beach. Views from the house fantastic and our family of ten were very comfortable! The garden is quite small but is fully enclosed. Good park for young kids in the village. We would return! - 17th August 2016
Perfect setting with a beach and a golf course on your doorstep what more could you ask for.House very comfortable and all facilities we required.Would certainly return to this house. - 20th July 2016
Our stay at 3, The Villas was very comfortable. Our party was a family get together with ages ranging from 1 year to mid sixties and there was plenty of room to accommodate all our needs. Great place with a lovely beach a few moments walk away. - 20th July 2016
We stayed in 3 The Villas with family and friends over New Year. The house is very comfortable, spacious and well equipped with a wood burning stove and several open fireplaces. Despite the atrocious weather we hardly needed the stove as the the underfloor heating was very cosy. The situation looking directly down to the golf course and beach is amazing with fantastic views from every room. We felt completely at home, were very sorry to leave and would love to return sometime. Lots of good pubs within walking distance including the Ship at Low Newton and the Jolly Fisherman at Craster. We also discovered Barter Books in Alnwick which is a must! - 9th January 2016
A beautiful family home from home! We had a fabulous week at 3 The Villas with a houseful of relatives. Even though there were 10 of us we still had plenty of space and didn't feel we were on top of each other. It was so lovely to have the rear sitting room with underfloor heating as well as the more formal lounge. Beautiful rural/sea views from all the rooms at the front of the house. Well equipped, lovely comfortable beds and bedding. The house is full of character with some of the original Victorian charm such as fireplaces, sash windows and high ceilings. There was no need for us to use the fires during our stay however plenty of logs provided and I would imagine it would be quite cosy to light them during the colder weather. The position of 3 The Villas is excellent, a 10 minute walk to the beautiful Embleton Bay beach, so unspoilt and despite being the height of the season not at all crowded. Easy drive to some magnificent castles and sights and we loved our visit to Cragside. The only thing that was difficult to get was a signal on our phones and wifi was very slow, not that this bothered us too much however at one point I did need to call the Dr. and had to run up the road a bit to get a signal! I will definitely return without doubt!! - 18th August 2015
This is an exceptional house in a stunning location. It was such a pleasure to stay at The Villas and the house was ideal for all family members - from grandparents to babies. We'd love to return at any time of year. - 21st July 2015
