Rock Mill Cottage Rock Mill Cottage: A most charming early 18th Century Northumbrian rural retreat, which adjoins the owner's tranquil farmhouse and garden in the scattered rural hamlet of Rock. Just 2 miles inland from the beautiful Heritage Bays of Embleton and Low Newton-by-the-Sea, Rock Mill Cottage was for generations a traditional farm worker's cottage. In recent years it has been sympathetically restored to provide both tasteful and comfortable accommodation. Surrounded by spectacular wide open countryside, its location is idyllic and peaceful - perfect for that hard earned relaxing break. The market town of Alnwick is just 6 miles to the south west, whilst Lindisfarne on Holy Island lies proudly on to the horizon some 24 miles north. With picture postcard beaches and seriously good real ale pubs and restaurants in abundance (including the owners favourite, 'The Ship Inn' at Low Newton-by-the-Sea) Rock Mill Cottage and its environs offer a truly superb country holiday paradise.

Croft Cottage:
A beautiful, this time detached stone barn conversion, once again just 2 miles inland from the beautiful Heritage Bays of Embleton and Low Newton-by-the-Sea. Formerly an early Georgian farm steading, Croft Cottage has in recent times been both lovingly restored and modernised to an exceptionally high standard. It offers a spacious open plan living area with natural limestone flooring and original roof trusses. The stylish kitchen boasts granite surfaces and six-burner 'Lacanche' range cooker, whilst the highly efficient Scandinavian wood burning stove handsomely separates the dining and sitting areas. With two good sized bedrooms and a luxurious bathroom, this idyllic retreat is perfectly designed for relaxing amidst awesomely beautiful surroundings. With Northumberland's Heritage Coast and the historic Market Town of Alnwick all within easy driving distance, Croft Cottage makes for a truly unique holiday destination. Sorry, no smokers or pets.
