Bank Top is in a wonderful position and the North Farm Cottages complex is excellent.. I would not hesitate in recommending it to anyone.
The cottage was excellent, view superb with a lovely 20 minute walk across the fields to the beach and all brimming with wildlife.
We had Brown Hares right up to the front door late evening and early morning, and saw Fox and Roe Deer. The birds - Skylarks, Yellowhammers , Swallows, Wagtails, and Reed Buntings around Newton Pond were in abundance, as well as Eider ducks with their ducklings, on the sea.
The Farne Islands is an amazing experience , though I was concerned about the effect that the number of visitors was having on the site and the birds; some were abusing the Arctic Terns just to get photographs, which was not right.
This was our first visit to Northumberland and we loved it. Embleton is a very convenient centre, with a garage/small shop and petrol at a comparable price, Post Office/small shop and several places for a meal , including the Dunstanburgh Hotel which was very good.
Spectacular scenery, friendly people, hardly any traffic, beautiful empty beaches, coastal walks second to none, and all litter-free - a rare treat !!
What more could you want ?!
A beautiful and unspoilt part of the countryside.
