About Seaview Cottage
A family cottage with spectacular views and cosy accommodation

Seaview Cottage has been owned by the Appleby family for over 50 years, and has been the chosen holiday destination for generations of Applebys over the years. The Applebys have been closely connected to Embleton for many, many years, and the ancestors of the current cottage owners established Embleton Quarry, which was the main employer in the village from the mid-nineteenth century until its closure in 1961.


The views from the sun lounge and the garden, across to the ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle on its rocky crag, are spectacular and inspirational. And since the sun lounge is also the dining room, you can watch the sun set over the sea as you devour your dinner and sip your wine. On a cool evening, you can switch on the electric heater to make the room nice and cosy.


 

Note that the settee folds out into a double bed, if required.




 
A spacious garden

Seaview Cottage has a large lawn, perfect for children and dogs to run around on (but do clear up any mess afterwards!). And the garden is also perfect for barbecues in the summer - a wooden table and a variety of garden chairs are provided.

 

 

At the other side of the cottage, below the car parking area, there is a smaller lawn with a clothes line. You'll find clothes pegs in one of the kitchen drawers.

 
The cosy living room

The living room is cosy and comfortable, with a real fire that generates plenty of heat in winter, and two leather settees. There is a TV and DVD unit, with a Freeview box, and for those of you who (like the Applebys!) like to keep in touch with friends, update your Facebook status, and check all the latest sports results, free wireless broadband is available.

 


The living room also has well-stocked book shelves (feel free to read, but not remove, the contents), and a radio/CD player.


The dresser in the corner of the room contains crockery and glasses. And in the drawer on the right side of the dresser, you'll find a selection of local brochures and leaflets.

 

 
Kitchen

The small but well-equipped kitchen has everything you need to keep a hungry family satisfied. You can stock up the fridge and the freezer with your favourite foods, and prepare your culinary masterpieces using the electric hob cooker - and microwave, if needed. However note that there is no dishwasher.


And you don't need to worry about muddy clothes either - the kitchen has a washing machine and separate tumble drier.

 

 


 
Master bedroom

The master bedroom is bright and airy, with a pine double bed, a wardrobe, and a chest of drawers.


Note that bed linen is provided, as are bath towels and tea-towels. But please bring your own beach towels.

 

 
Second bedroom

The second bedroom is ideal for children, with bunk beds and a separate single bed. However the bunks are adult-size, so they can be used by grown-ups too.


The large, built-in cupboard contains spare duvets, blankets, and pillows, and two chests of drawers provide plenty of space for several sets of holiday clothes.

 

 
Bathroom

The small bathroom includes a bath, with a shower above. To switch on the shower, pull the cord with the puffin on its end!
