This delightful 18th Century Northumbrian rural cottage sleeps 4 people across 2 bedrooms in the popular village of Embleton.

Rock Mill Cottage was built in the 18th Century and is located 3 miles outside of Embleton. It has been restored and converted to offer accommodation for up to 4 people. The downstairs living-area has been designed in an open-plan style and comprises an living/dining area, a bathroom and a modern, fitted kitchen. The south-facing garden offers fantastic views and ample opportunity for summer barbeques and alfresco dining.


Great place to stay even when weather was so poor
Lovely, homely cottage, especially during the chill evenings of November, the wooding-burning stove was great and cheerful. Very quiet and peaceful location, will definitely return again in late Spring when hopefully the weather will be kinder.

We used the Cottage as a base whilst playing the various golf courses in the area each day. The Cottage was in a super spot - well equipped, great wifi, and quiet. We had a fantastic time and really enjoyed the little touches that make all the difference when you are away. Many thanks for a lovely stay.

Rural seclusion shame about the weather
Rock Mill Cottage is part of a farm stead, tucked away down a long lane, a real gem in the middle of no-where. If you like waking up to the sound of bird song not traffic noise then this place is for you. Owners Jeremy and Elaine very helpful when queries arose and he even made a fire for us on the first night as the storage heaters had been switched off and the Northumberland June evening was chilly! Shame about the weather but an ideal base for touring round the area with castles / towns / beaches / excellent pubs all within easy striking distance. Lovely scenery when we could see it when the mist parted. Recommended.

A great location, quiet and peaceful yet centrally sited between many attractions.
Mr Stones

I thoroughly enjoyed Rock Mill Cottage for many reasons. The location was excellent with many roads leading to all sorts of interesting places, such as the Castles. We ventured out everyday knowing we would return to the comforts of the cottage coupled with very peaceful surroundings. The cottage was extremely comfortable and beautifully decorated with more than enough of everything.
