Rock Mill Cottage

Rock Mill Cottage comfortably blends contemporary chic with traditional Northumbrian character. The 18th-century farm cottage near Embleton houses an open fire, exposed stone walls and ultra-modern décor and is surrounded by the spectacular countryside of the rural hamlet of Rock.

Within the stone walls of Rock Mill Cottage sit one double room and one king-size double with zip/link twin. The bedrooms feature stylish design and touches of yesteryear, while ultra-modern facilities are found in the bathroom, with bath shower over, basin and WC.

The fitted kitchen is also very modern and leads to the open plan living area with the dining room, delightful garden views and cosy open fire. Families can relax in the sitting room with TV with basic Sky, Blu-ray DVD, radio/CD and iPod dock.

Central heating keeps the entire property cosy and guests can also rely on off-road parking, superfast WiFi, amenities for young children, laundry facilities and storage for bikes.

The views on offer from the front and back gardens will tempt guests to partake of a BBQ and relish those sunny, summer days.

The pet-free property is accessed via a private lane and a public footpath leads from the property to Embleton Bay and Low Newton-by-the-Sea. A real-ale pub is also a short walk away and Rock Mill Cottage lies in easy reach of Craster, Dunstanburgh Castle, Alnwick and the remainder of Northumberland’s Heritage Coastline.

Reviews

Comfortable, welcoming, friendly . . . just what we were looking

This was an excellent choice by my wife. We travelled with an 18 month old baby and wanted to have all the comforts of home to make our stay relaxing. The cottage provided everything as advertised with no surprises. Take a look at the pictures. It really is that pretty and well appointed. As for location, it was excellent. Out in the country yet only a couple of miles from the a1 for easy access to alnick and the surrounding area.
The hosts Jeremy and Elaine were equally pleasing. Very friendly and certainly gave the impression they were there to help with any requests. We never made any requests because we were very satisfied with things as we found them. Well done!
Would not hesitate to recommend this cottage.
If your needs are for a bigger cottage there is another larger one on site also. Well worth a phone call to check it out.

Comfort with character

The owners Elaine and Jeremy were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The cottage lived up to all our expectations, comfortable beds, very modern facilities but retaining a farmhouse character, with a small private garden that got the evening sun (I especially liked the kitchen). The cottage is in a lovely, pretty, quiet location but near to all the major attractions Northumberland has to offer. This area is beautiful, full of history with superb unspoilt beaches. Will definitely return.

Delightful, peaceful and comfortable

Very clean, comfortable and charming character cottage in a brilliant location for exploring the Northumberland coast. The owner was very friendly and gave us loads of tips about local places to eat and drink (accurate tips, too!). The quiet location meant we slept extremely well and had total privacy too. Great place and we have already recommended it to family.

Perfect cottage to explore Northumberland coast

Had a wonderful week in this lovely cottage. So peaceful waking up to nothing but birdsong! The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped . The wood burning stove made for cosy evenings after exploring the beautiful Northumberland coastline. Plenty of lovely walks on this stunning coastline, and there are plenty of places to visit. Spoiled for choice on where to eat. We were joined for a couple of nights by our sons, both in their 20's who said the bunk beds were comfy!
The owner Jeremy welcomed us he was really friendly and very helpful - and no need for a good food guide as his recommendations were spot on. We look forward to returning!

Lovely stylish cottage - great for a peaceful getaway.

Spent 5 nights staying in your Rock Mill Cottage over February Half Term. The cottage was a great base to explore Northumberland. Nice walks from the cottage - close to Embleton Bay and the fantastic Ship Inn and Pilgrim's Arms pubs. The accommodation was perfect for our family (2 adults / 2 children) stylishly decorated, really clean, warm and comfortable - a great place to relax and unwind. Jeremy and Elaine did a great job of making us feel welcome.

Rural seclusion shame about the weather

Rock Mill Cottage is part of a farm stead, tucked away down a long lane, a real gem in the middle of no-where. If you like waking up to the sound of bird song not traffic noise then this place is for you. Owners Jeremy and Elaine very helpful when queries arose and he even made a fire for us on the first night as the storage heaters had been switched off and the Northumberland June evening was chilly! Shame about the weather but an ideal base for touring round the area with castles / towns / beaches / excellent pubs all within easy striking distance. Lovely scenery when we could see it when the mist parted. Recommended.

Great place to stay even when weather was so poor

Lovely, homely cottage, especially during the chill evenings of November, the wooding-burning stove was great and cheerful. Very quiet and peaceful location, will definitely return again in late Spring when hopefully the weather will be kinder.

We liked the fact that the cottage was very remote and the coal/log burner in the lounge made it very cosy.

Mrs Cummins

The setting was very peaceful, close to beaches and countryside, but easily accessible to A1.

Mr Fraser

Cottage beautifully restored and freshly decorated. Our stay was very relaxing. Children enjoyed playing in garden with dogs and ducks. Owners friendly and helpful.

Mrs Lang

We love this area - lots to do and so unspoilt. One of the best cottages we have stayed in. Kitchen facilities excellent, furnishings and carpets were lovely and everything was new. Lots of safe space for children to play and we all like the ducks and dogs(though owners were careful not to let dogs out until we asked about them). We would certainly stay here again if in the area. Our second Sykes cottage - we have been very pleased with both. Thank you!

A very peaceful location. the cottage was beautifully decorated throughout, extremely clean on arrival and the owners, who lived next door, were on hand should there have been any problems (there were none).

Dr Tomlinson

We booked the cottage for a special occasion and were made to feel very welcome by the owners. The cottage was cosy with
a woodburner in the living room, comfortable bedrooms, modern downstairs bathroom and a small kitchen with plenty crockery for our family who visited us and we felt very at home there. The setting, in the heart of the lovely Northumbrian countryside, close to beautiful unspoilt beaches, is very peaceful and we had a very enjoyable, restful holiday with pleasant walks in the autumn sunshine and visits to interesting local villages and castles, including the nearby historic town of Alnwick. Although the road to Rock Mill has an uneven surface it was well worth the drive to such a haven of tranquility in such lovely rural surroundings.

Mrs Dixon

A lovely cottage, beautifully furnished and in a quiet peaceful location. The owners were very friendly and helpful, we would love to visit again!

Mrs Gillam

Excellent location with easy access to A1 and surrounding area. Very pretty countryside all around the cottage and the cottage itself was charming. Really loved the log burner. Going to have to get one at home. Very smart kitchen with everything we needed and more. The owners were very friendly and delivered excellent service. We never had to make any requests because they had catered for all our needs perfectly. Would be our first call if we were to return to the area.

Mrs Rawlinson

Fantastic location with a feeling of peace and perfect isolation when returning to the cottage from days out. Owners were friendly and made us feel very welcome.

Mr Phelan

The cottage was lovely and in a very pretty quiet location. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly. The area around Embleton is beautiful and there is so much to do in this unspoilt county.
The only problem was that a week isn't long enough to explore all that Northumberland has to offer!

Mrs Baxter

The decor of the cottage and its cleanliness. Also the outside space at front and back. In addition its central location enabled easy access to many different areas of the coast. Friendly owner too.

I thoroughly enjoyed Rock Mill Cottage for many reasons. The location was excellent with many roads leading to all sorts of interesting places, such as the Castles. We ventured out everyday knowing we would return to the comforts of the cottage coupled with very peaceful surroundings.
The cottage was extremely comfortable and beautifully decorated with more than enough of everything.

Mrs Murray

A great location, quiet and peaceful yet centrally sited between many attractions.

Mr Stones

We used the Cottage as a base whilst playing the various golf courses in the area each day. The Cottage was in a super spot - well equipped, great wifi, and quiet. We had a fantastic time and really enjoyed the little touches that make all the difference when you are away. Many thanks for a lovely stay.
