Description

This former barn has been sympathetically converted into 2 semi-detached houses, to make the most of the superb location affording sea views from many windows. Fidra sleeps 6 and its next door neighbour, Longstone, sleeps 4, so these properties could be booked together for larger parties of up to 10. Fidra has 3 bedrooms on the ground floor as well as the family bathroom, and the first floor provides an open-plan living/dining/kitchen space with spectacular views from large picture windows. Sit with your morning coffee or at mealtimes and gaze out at the Farne Islands in one direction and the remains of Dunstanburgh Castle in another. On fine days enjoy less than a 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! Enjoy a very comfortable week here on the rugged north Northumberland coast. If you have a dog, bring him or her along to enjoy the stunning beach walks.

Reviews

This is a comfortable house with spectacular views. Embleton is peaceful and the beach is one of the most beautiful I know. - 31st October 2018
A nice cosy cottage in a good location for trips around the Northumberland either by car or on foot. Could perhaps do with a bit of a spring clean, although generally clean and tidy with good facilities (although washing machine wasn't working whilst we were there). Excellent views of fields, golf course and sea, there's always something to watch and the chairs by the windows were well used. Lighting was also a little dark if you wanted to read or anything in the sitting area on an evening, although fine for watching tv etc. Great location for walks along the coast to High/Low Newton and Craster, for lunch and local shop and pubs nearby too. Would recommend and would return again at any time of the year. - 14th September 2016
Very spacious and well equipped. The cottage has brilliant views and is in a very convenient location. The interior is a little tired and could do with a little updating, but nevertheless it is great value for money and we wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. - 6th September 2016
A fantastic house with stunning views. Wish i could stay permanently. Everything you need for a good holiday. Good local shops and pubs. Loved The Grey Inn. - 1st July 2015
