Embleton village in the English county of Northumberland is about half a mile from the bay that carries its name. The sandy beach is backed by dunes where a variety of flowers bloom: bluebells, cowslips, burnet roses and, to give it its common name, bloody cranesbill, amongst others. Dunstanburgh Castle stands at the southern end of Embleton Bay. Close by, to the south, is the fishing village of Craster.

Robert de Emeldon, Lord Treasurer of Ireland, was born in Embleton towards the close of the thirteenth century.

Embleton has a main street with one shop. There is a small green with the village pump on it, out of use now but at one time the source of the water supply. Embleton has an 18-hole golf course which opened in 1900 and was updated in 1922.
