About this property

Once a working blacksmiths, this detached property lies just 5½ miles from Alnwick and 4 miles from beautiful Embleton Bay.
Only 4 miles from Embleton Bay, with its sweeping sands and romantic bay, this former blacksmiths is set in the small hamlet of Rock. Dating back to 1888, it offers a contemporary and welcoming central base for families, friends and couples. Standing detached, it has a roomy interior and a spacious, enclosed garden which makes this is a great property for all age groups. Craster is only 5 miles, famous for its smoked kippers which can be bought at the fresh fish shop, still situated beside the harbour. Alnwick, with its cobbled streets, is 5½ miles, and is famous for its castle featured in the Harry Potter films and the ‘Downton Abbey’ TV series. The property is ideally located for travelling inland to the National Park, west to visit Hadrian’s Wall or north towards the Borders and Scotland. S49959 makes a great base for exploring the whole of this very friendly and unspoilt county. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

"Well appointed cottage with everything you require. Provided slippers a nice touch. Rear garden is enclosed and a good size for dogs. All bedrooms are a good size with king size or above beds.Some of the glasses had been put away dirty (been used and full of lipstick) and required washing before use but this is the fault of the inconsiderate previous guests and not the owners.Good location for exploring the NE and whilst the cottage is located on a main road through the village and at the end of a small estate, the village is very quiet and we were not disturbed. Would visit this cottage again which speaks volumes."

"Situated in corner of small rural housing development - found location good and some lovely walks around Rock estate too, stunning night sky on a clear night. There is a pub about 2miles away and a farm cafe the other way, otherwise Alnwick(lovely) is your nearest about 10mins drive which has all the amenities you could want.I liked the location and that is what would make me return. Just a couple miles of A1 and beaches another few miles away.Property was very nice and comfy and warm. Good beds and lovely enclosed garden.If I have negatives has to be some of the kitchen things need replacing ie oven tray etc, I kept my bread in a carrier bag for a week - no bread bin. Also the TV is a wee small for such a large and lofty lounge, think a newer model needed and the old one would go well in the space made for a tv in main bedroom, even has an ariel cable? Wifi is good but not to far away from hub, good speeds so ideal for Netflix...if they had a smart tv."

"Excellent accommodation, we had a lovely week, weather was kind, having not visited Northumberland before, we found it to be a stunningly beautiful part of the country. Amazing beaches.We have no complaints and will return."
Alison ‐ 23 Sep 2018
"We found the cottage needed a thorough clean eg skirting boards etc. Beautiful cottage but found the shutters make the whole cottage seem too dark"
Jemma ‐ 16 Sep 2018
"Beautiful place to stay. We really enjoyed our stay! Northumberland is gorgeous.. so many beaches and things to do. The house is amazing and is like home from home.. very comfortable and modern but with warmth and character"

"This is a lovely spacious cottage in a very quiet location, yet there are many places to visit within a 15 minute drive. Although this is rated as a 4* property on the website, it really could be a 5*."
Julie ‐ 11 Aug 2018
"A beautiful cottage set in a stunning location. The cottage is spacious and homely. Staying in Rock gives you the feel of being ‘in the middle of nowhere’ whilst being only 10 minutes drive from the beaches, supermarket and town. We loved it!"

"It was the best family holiday ever!"
Jo ‐ 29 Jul 2018
"A few niggles have caused me to give lower scores. Having stayed in many different UK holiday cottages this was the first to not even have put a pint of milk in the fridge for our arrival. Instead there were probably 20 long life mini pots of milk that I immediately threw away as they were almost a year out of date. Some of the kitchen equipment needed replacing - baking tins etc. The dustbin was completely full when we arrived - clearer instructions need to be displayed in the kitchen so that guests know where & when the bins need to be put out for collection. This is a lovely holiday property which just needs a little bit more attention to the detail."

"Blacksmiths is a lovely cottage decorated and furnished to a high standard. It is comfortable with plenty of room for 4 people although it would sleep 6. The dining area would be more cramped with 6. The kitchen appliances are also of a high standard. However, I would suggest adding some serving dishes, microwaveable cooking dishes and a few more saucepans, especially if catering for 6 people. We had a problem with the heat alarm in the kitchen, which went off about every 15 minutes for no reason on or second evening in the cottage. We had to disable it. I called the emergency number and we had a very quick response. The man who came replaced the battery and asked us to let him know if it didn't resolve the issue. It resolved the problem for two days before it started again. Having rung the cottages office, and electrician came out very quickly and replaced the faulty item. Thank you for dealing with it efficiently.The bathrooms/ensuites are fitted to a high standard as are the bedrooms. The main downside for us was the location. Although the cottage is in a rural, peaceful and central location, it is still a 20 minute plus journey to the main attractions. There are no footpaths from the cottage and no amenities with walking distance. The pub is shown in the information as being under a mile. It is in fact 1.2 miles. This in itself is well within walking distance, but the walk is down a narrow road so particularly pleasant and not suitable for evenings. Having said that, we had a lovely time in S49959 and we would go there again."

"When your 2 1/2 year old grandson walks in and says ‘wow’ then what more can be said? Location is excellent just need to go out as there is nothing immediately in Rock itself. And I really wouldn’t like to have to try and dust all of those shutters every week either! A fab place and plans are afoot to book again next year - just need to synchronise those diaries and we’ll be there. Thank you for a wonderful stay."

"Loved our weeks stay, very comfortable. Our only suggestion would be an addition of a radio but overall very pleased with our vacation."
Amanda ‐ 8 May 2018
"We love Rock and this is the 4th home we have stayed in here. Very comfortable and very clean. The garden was great and the living beautiful. We enjoyed the log burning stove at night. Wi-Fi worked great. The towels and bedding were not up to the standard of the rest of the home, but clean and usable. Would definitely go again."
Lyndsey ‐ 28 Apr 2018
"Fantastic place to stay! Very spacious and well kept. We had lovely weather so we enjoyed the garden and the views. Nice walks from the house. Would love to stay again!"
