Visit Embleton

Embleton is a small village near Embleton Bay and south of Seahouses within the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

There isn't a great deal to the village itself, although it is very pleasant to explore - it is pretty much a 'one-street town' along with the Church of the Holy Trinity.

Nearby Embleton tower is one of many peel towers (14th century defences against the Scots) to be seen in the region - unusually this one was incorporated into a vicarage in the 19th century.

The main attraction close to the village is picturesque Embleton Bay, which leads south towards Dunstanburgh Castle (see Craster for details). The bay is backed by sand dunes and very popular with visitors. There is also a golf course behind Embleton Bay - the upmarket 'beach huts' that you will see in the dunes date from the 1930's when golfers here wanted somewhere to stay.
