    “Lovely, comfortable and very well equipped property in quiet location”
    Lilian was waiting to greet us when we arrived and made us very welcome. The property is in a quiet area on the edge of town, is very well equipped, warm and comfortable and has a lovely, spacious garden and a little conservatory for warmer days. There is a wealth of information about the area in the sitting room. Amble is well placed for using as a base to explore Northumberland and we enjoyed visits to Seahouses, Bamburgh, Alnmouth, Alnwick, Berwick upon Tweed, Hexham, Housesteads, Durham ...

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.
