High Hemmel House description

The village of Embleton can be traced back to beyond medieval times and during the Wars of the Roses, it suffered much from the ravages of Scottish invaders. Today, ancient castles and ruins stand testament to Embleton's turbulent past; the Church of Holy Trinity is a late-Norman church, dating from the 12th century, later to be restored in Victorian times. Viewed from the sea, the undulating whinstone ridge that shelters much of the village from east winds, resembles a caterpillar, hence the old name 'Emeldune', meaning the hill of the caterpillar. The rolling countryside means that golfers can enjoy a good 18-hole links golf course that overlooks the beautiful Embleton Bay. Recently launched is the Embleton Heritage Trails Project, consisting of six trails, ranging from a short walk around the village, to a longer six mile route, following the spectacular coastline and inland into the tranquil countryside.

Northumberland is a heady combination of fishing villages, market towns, sandy beaches, magnificent castles and historic Hadrian's Wall, tied together by beautiful countryside and abundant wildlife.

High Hemmel House was an absolutely fantastic property, for what we were seeking. We were a group of 4 couples looking to catch up and enjoy the Northumberland coast (and a few of the pubs!). The location of the property is perfect for such needs. Everything about the property was exactly what we wanted, and everyone commented on how great it was!

Beautiful, comfortable and well equipped accommodation. An isolated location but short walk to a lovely beach. Great base for exploring the area or walking. We did Alnwick, Seahouses and a day out to Holy Island. After a hard day sight seeing and walking, the options of inside with a blazing fire or outside in the hot tub! Loved it and highly likely to return.

Our partyconsisting of 2 grandparents,2parents and 2 teenage granddaughters have just returned from a week holidayat this extremelywell appointed property.The initial view on arrival was of a modern development with a very appealing outlook. On entering the quality was obvious the furnishings and fittings showed quality and taste.This first impression was carried throughout the whole house. A hot tub completed our satisfaction . The 2 grandchildren and grandad enjoyed the daily feeding the ducks. The village is close enough for basic shopping and newspapers. And the provision of WIFI kept the girls happy. The various pubs/restaurants were all close and were satisfying our various tastes. To sum up, execellent facility and we would hope to return.
