About Risemoor

Close to the sands of Embleton Bay, this coastal cottage is a great spot for wildlife watching.

Coastal cottage, Risemoor, is just a one minute stroll to the golden sands of Embleton Bay. The coastal theme is reflected inside with nautical prints, cream walls, pebble lamps, bunting and reclaimed furniture. It makes for a bright airy space that will leave you feeling refreshed. 

Its closeness to Newton Pool Nature Reserve will also help you get in touch with nature. You’ll wake up to the sound of birds and maybe even the sight of the elusive otter that inhabits here. 

You could spend all day exploring the vast sands of this beautiful stretch of the Northumberland coastline. It’s dotted with castles; Dunstanburgh is a 10 minute drive to the south, Bamburgh is a 30 minute drive to the north and Lindisfarne is just across the sea on Holy Island.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
