Located on the outskirts of this pretty coastal village, just a short stroll to Embleton beach, The Lodge is an independent wing of an early 20th century country house which has been lovingly refurbished by its owner, Anne, who taking inspiration from the works of Charles Rennie Mackintosh has styled this couple's Retreat in homage to the Glasgow Style.
The Lodge is a peaceful haven for a couple looking to relax, take strolls around the extensive five-acre grounds of river, orchard and woodland or wander down to the white sands of Embleton Bay. Arriving to freshly baked bread, this property is romantic and inspiring, there are walks along the river and through the woodland and orchard at this 20th Century art nouveau era country house with its clever blend of contemporary wallcoverings, beautiful fabrics, quirky items, oak and painted furniture, relaxing colours and up to the minute kitchen and bathrooms - all of which would not look out of place on the pages of household interior magazines. Spend the evenings on the decked area outside the cottage enjoying some freshly cooked produce from the garden, which is complimentary for guests, or snuggle up in the spacious lounge with its stylish log burner. The exceptional master bedroom has a large ensuite with double shower and free standing bath, and there is an additional ground floor bathroom.

The Lodge is attached to the owner's house but privacy should not be an issue, although you may see the owner walking past to the greenhouse occasionally! Mobile reception can be erratic at the Lodge and in Embleton generally, but there is a landline phone.
Whilst we take great care to represent our properties and their facilities as accurately as possible, the décor, furnishings and facilities shown in images and video tours may occasionally be subject to minor change.
Really only suitable for a babe in arms, but The Lodge has played host to a few toddlers too.
I felt at home and relaxed the moment I stepped into the Lodge. I knew we’d made an excellent choice. The bed and the sofa/snuggle chair were lovely and comfortable and the Lodge was wonderfully spacious for two people. We loved being in the countryside but also near the sea. I don’t think we’d appreciated just how lovely the gardens and grounds would be and how they would be a significant part of our relaxation on holiday. Every day, when we got back to the lodge, we took our chairs and a drink down to the burn and enjoyed the late afternoon and evening sunshine. It was the perfect holiday home for us and we would have loved ti stay a bit longer.
Perfect Cottage for a relaxing break. Attention to detail in providing everything we needed, friendly, welcoming hosts
Previous holidayS at thins property
All good stuff.
Lovely well appointed cottage in a beautiful location with a lovely welcome from the owners.
Quiet location outside Embleton, but easy access to the coast. The village of Craster is just done the road and possible to do some walks from the property itself. Reasonable access to Alnwick and villages on the coast like Beadnell and Bamburgh. Comfortable and well equipped property, friendly owners. Nice large garden to be explored.
The cottage was excellent, quality throughout, and the owners were very nice. Great location for exploring the area.
Could not fault this holiday, everything was as described and some even better.
Fantastic service and the owners of the property were exceptional
The Lodge at Shirewater was delightful. Though the booking staff at Original Cottages were very pleasant, they appeared somewhat disorganised. I asked for twin beds when booking - this request was ignored. I subsequently telephoned to repeat the request, and was assured this had been done. My client account still showed a king double. I changed to twin on the account . I was not surprised on arrival at Shirewater to discover the bed made up as a double. This does not inspire confidence.
Location suited us perfectly and we were made to feel very welcome. Freshly baked bread awaiting our arrival was a particular treat. We were very happy indeed with our break away.
Excellent property with everything you could want lovely grounds short walk to nearby pubs and beach and lovely welcome pack
Comfortable, well equipped property. Quiet location, friendly owners. Outstanding coastline nearby.
Accommodation was excellent. Very clean and well looked after. everything you needed was there. the Owners next door extremely welcoming and friendly. No hesitation in recommending the Lodge to our friends.
The property was excellently presented and we received a warm welcome (including some lovely goodies). We would highly recommend.
One of the best cottages we have stayed in. Well equipped, clean and roomy for 2 people. A delightful wellcome pack waiting for us when we arrived. The cottage is in a very good position to explore the coastline particularly: can walk to the beach in 15 minutes. Would go there again.
Comfortable, cottage in a quiet location, just outside Embleton. Good village farm shop. About a mile or so to Embleton Bay, either through the village to Dunstanburgh Golf Club or down to Dunstan Steads; Craster village a bit further.. Friendly and helpful owners.
What a special place Shirewater is. A very warm welcome from Anne and Peter. Walking into the smell of freshly baking bread in the kitchen was the perfect start. The food hamper was beautiful. Don’t miss out on Tilda’s eggs from the hens next door. The lodge has everything you could wish for. It was immaculately clean ( and I am very fussy!). The super king bed was incredibly comfortable and sitting in bed with a morning cuppa looking at the distant sea view was lovely. The roll top bath in the en-suite was perfect after miles of walking on the nearby beaches and coast paths. Shirewater is a little slice of heaven. The orchard was not only bursting with the juiciest plums but masses of butterflies! The heron was fishing on the lake and the grounds are simply beautiful. Expertly landscaped to make the most of the natural environment. What an absolutely wonderful time we had. We shall be back without doubt.
This is a beautiful place. We had a great week exploring the area. The owners were so friendly and welcoming. The goodies hamper and loaf of freshly baked bread in the bread machine were delightful. Absolutely nothing negative to say!
The property is ideally located to enjoy Northumberland. You can walk down to Embleton beach and enjoy a walk along the coastal path. Easy to drive to other locations as well. A mix of castles, beaches and walks. The property itself has a lovely layout with an open kitchen area, dining table, comfortable chairs and a TV (make smart by an Amazon Firestick) and DVD player. Games, books and advice on what to do in the area (it's all there). Really enjoyable stay and the owners are really friendly and helpful.
A quiet location with a delightful garden which we were at liberty to explore. The lodge is spacious, very clean, light and bright and beautifully decorated. Our hosts were welcoming, helpful and lovely to talk to. We appreciated the generous hamper of good quality food which we found on arrival.
This was our fourth visit to this property and it did not disappoint
