The Property

This traditional end-terrace cottage is located in the conservation area of the vibrant fishing village of Amble. Renovated to a good standard, this Amble cottage offers views over the scenic Northumberland coast towards Coquet Island, and is an ideal base for a family or a group of friends. Tastefully decorated, this Amble cottage has two large bedrooms complete with a family bathroom benefiting from a rain shower. The comfortable living area features a warming woodburner, perfect for cosy evenings, and with WiFi and a TV with Sky movies and sports package, guests are sure to be kept entertained. French doors lead to the enclosed rear yard, plus a grassed side garden boasts unrestricted views of the coast and is an ideal spot for warmer evenings. This Amble cottage is perfectly located for access to the dog-friendly beach, and here you will discover a pretty little cove with rock pools that little ones will delight in. This charming Amble cottage is so named because the great-great-grandfather of the owner was the lighthouse keeper of Coquet Island; now a bird sanctuary. Boat trips from the harbour offer sightseers the chance to pay a call on the resident puffins. Numerous restaurants and dog-friendly pubs are just a short stroll from your Amble cottage, and you can visit the majestic Alnwick Castle, known as Hogwarts in the popular Harry Potter films, or explore miles of Heritage Coast nearby. This cottage in Amble offers a relaxing break, and is a comfortable base from which to discover Northumberland.

About the location

Amble-by-the-sea

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 Trustís Wallington Hall and Cragside are all within easy reach.

This was our second visit to Lightkeeper House and we enjoyed it just as much as the first time. The house is warm and well equipped with good quality furnishings, crockery and cooking pans. Having WiFi and Sky TV was a plus, especially with the winter Olympics being on. The house is in a lovely location with fantastic views over the coast and Coquet Island.

Great base for touring. Good local walks and facilities. Adequate local restaurants, pubs, cafés. A short stroll to the harbour and beaches. Quiet & peaceful.

Mr Maclure, Wigan, January 2014

Superb accommodation, great position!!!!

Mr Foy, St. Helens, January 2014

A warm, comfortable and well equipped house in a great location. Furnishings and cookware were of a high quality. Convenient for local shops and restaurants, the house is in a quiet location with lovely sea views from several windows. As it got dark early, it was good to have Sky TV and wifi access, as well as the log burner.
