    Plenty of kitchen equipment for anyone who wants to cook. The owner left kindle and wood to start the fire and wine and chocolate biscuits which were a nice touch . We will revisit in the future .

  • "We arrived in the midst of Storm Eunice so we’re pleased that it was lovely and warm and we could park outside."

    It’s in a fab location with sea views. The cottage was spotlessly clean, yes there were a few squeaky floorboards but that didn’t bother us. The owner had left enough wood for the log burner, we had to buy matches to light it. The only thing missing was a hairdryer. We also wasn’t keen on the rug in the living room as it was difficult to clean, other than that it was perfect and we will definitely rebook to visit again.

  • "Bay View Cottage was warm and comfortable and its location was ideal for visiting the surrounding area and for walks along the Northumberland coastline."

    The view from the window over Amble Bay was lovely and we are sure that in the summer months there would be plenty of activity in the bay with regards to sailing boats etc. Parking is available right outside the door of the cottage and the local convenience store is only a few hundred yards away.

    Amble has a lovely vibe with great walks around. Warkworth is also a lovely village with a great beach. We travelled the whole of the Northumberland coastal route visiting castles right up to Berwick on Tweed and Lindisfarne. Travelled across to Kielder Dam and Forest. Enjoyed all of the holiday.

  • "Comfortable and cosy cottage; nicely clean on arrival and with milk / teabags / biscuits / wine welcome package which we enjoyed."

    Cottage is slightly dated but well-equipped and a good space to be able to live in for the week. The owner was very helpful and accessible (not that we had any issues). The location is great - the kitchen overlooks the beach and entrance to Amble harbour. Parking is easy (outside the house or along the adjacent street) and the area sociable. A funfair was running for a few days opposite, on the green, but was neither particularly noisy nor a problem. The cottage is a great base for walks to the dunes (south) or Warkworth (north, not quite an hour) and for days out to Berwick (walk round the walls, nice lunch), Cragside House (NT property, excellent day out) and Hexham (to visit Housesreads Roman museum). There are plenty of accessible minisupermarkets withoin 10 minutes walk (Co-op, Tesco) and a big Morrisons 5 minutes drive away (on the link road by-passing Amble) where you can also get fuel. Wifi signal is strong (better than ours at home!) and lounge a comfortable living area. Was good value - we enjoyed our stay!

  • "In the middle of a Covid pandemic we expected the property to be spotless."

    We had already been to stay in Lythem St.Annes for a short break and that had been Covid secure with cushions that could not be washed removed.The first thing we saw was a tatty old throw on one of the sofas it should not have been there. We had brought food and we lifted out 2 dinner plates which both had dried food on.Luckily we had brought a picnic basket so could use those plates. The fire was thick with dust and there were many dusty old ornamnts We had brought lots of cleaning products so I spent several hours cleaning all the surfaces and decided we would not use any of their impliments and took our food home. The bathroom had a clean toilet and wash basin but the tiles were very dirty and had not been cleaned once again there were dirty dusty ornaments. In the garden there was lots of rubbish at the side of the shed . When we went into Amble every where we went cafes restaurants were covid sucure . I do not have a smart phone so could not take photographs. We shower every day but could not stand to use it and on Wednesday night we decided to leave could not cope with the dirty place any more. I think in a time of a deadly pandemic you need to check your properties to ensure this does not happen to any one else.

    ) winter break here with my dog. Easy to find, parking right outside. Little treats on arrival including tea & milk for a cuppa! Comfortable, cosy and clean. Heating easy to use. Fabulous seaview from the very well equipped kitchen. Gardens secure, enclosed and dog proof! Lots of walkies from the front door with beaches, castles and plenty of wildlife. Amble is a charming little place. Very dog (& people!) friendly with plenty to explore. I must admit on arrival I was a bit underwelmed but totally converted after our first walkies along the pier into the harbour. Absolutely no complaints. I don't normally consider return visits, as there are so many lovely cottages on Sykes to try, but if I did I would definitely come back here.

    The ability to have your breakfast whilst looking out over the harbour and beyond was very relaxing. The cottage itself was comfortable and fairly well equipped. Some of the equipment however could do with updating/replacement such as the kettle which leaked when pouring, some pans with worn non-stick coating, the laminate flooring which was split in the kitchen area and the washing machine with worn bearings was very noisy. Overall some care and attention to detail required.

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. There is a fish centre on the side of the harbour that is now primarily a shell fish hatchery to re-stock levels of lobster and other shell fish, this sells local fish and is open to the public. 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.
