About Rockside Cottage

A former fisherman’s cottage opposite a pub with sea views and a bright, contemporary living space.

Feel like a local in this former fisherman’s cottage. It sits on the shores of Embleton Bay, in a square of white-washed cottages. Just opposite is the cosy country pub, The Ship Inn, where you’ll able to join the locals for a traditional ale form their brewery and dance the night away to folk music. 

The open seascape streams light into this two-bedroom cottage, creating a bright and airy space.  It can accommodate four people and two dogs. There’s no garden, but pup will be able to stretch his legs with walks along the dog-friendly beaches of Low Newton-by-Sea and Embleton. 

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.
