    • “Fantastic hideaway from the busy High Street. There is off road parking which is a great bonus around there. The apartment is spacious, equipped with everything you need on your holiday and also tastefully decorated. Rates are reasonable too. The location is ideal to see Holy Island, Farne Island, Hadrian's Wall and the lovely sandy seaside. Also, not too far even from Edinburgh and the Scottish border. Shops are within minutes and the seaside is close. Would highly recommend it.”

About the location


Warkworth 1 mile; Alnmouth 4 miles.

The bustling little seaport of Amble is situated at the mouth of the River Coquet and is an ideal place for exploring Northumberland. Historically a centre for boatbuilding, Amble offers a marina, a harbour, sandy beaches and coastal walks to the bird sanctuary at Hauxley and country park at Druridge Bay. Large fishing boats moor along the harbour wall and land a variety of fish, prawns, crabs and lobsters - the daily catch can be bought at a fish shop in the harbour. A mile south of Amble is Coquet Island, an RSPB reserve with a large population of terns, puffins and eider ducks and boat trips around the island can be arranged. The pretty coastal villages of Alnmouth and Craster and numerous superb beaches are only a short drive away, whilst picturesque Warkworth with its castle, charming Alnwick with its castle and award-winning gardens, and the National Trust’s Wallington Hall and Cragside are all within easy reach.
