  • "This is the second time we have stayed at Canny Cottage."

    It is very comfortable, extremely well equipped and spotlessly clean. The owners have thought of everything that you might need and it really is a home from home cottage. Amble is a friendly town and the location makes it ideal for exploring Northumberland. We went up to Bamburgh and Holy Island one day, visited various beaches on other days and went to Morpeth on the bus one day to save driving and parking. It is a lovely part of the country and we will definitely return soon.

  • "Another wonderful holiday in this beautiful cottage!"

    We certainly found a little gem of a cottage when we first came last November and have just enjoyed our second visit. The cottage is so well equipped, immaculately clean and comfortable and a welcome pack to get you started! The owners also go above and beyond by providing dish washer and washing machine tablets/pods, washing up liquid and hand wash in kitchen and bathroom and salt and pepper, oil and vinegar plus many other bits and pieces, Thank you Barbara! A great base in Amble to visit all our favourite places up and down the beautiful coastline. We have already booked again for November this year and February next year so that speaks volumes!

  • "We had a fantastic New Year stay at Canny Cottage."

    It was very clean, warm and comfortable and one of the best equipped cottages we have ever stayed in. It had been decorated for Christmas and looked wonderful ! The gift of eggs, milk, biscuits and fizz (which we enjoyed on New Year's Eve) was very welcome. The cottage is only a few minutes walk from the shops and lovely harbour and marina and there is a Morrisons about a 10 minute walk away. We walked into Warkworth twice which is a gorgeous little place and ate at the Hermitage Inn which was very friendly and food good. We walked very briskly and it took us about half an hour. We were very lucky with the weather and managed to get out every day, only using the car once to go to Alnwick. All in all a fantastic holiday in a fantastic cottage !

Conveniently located for local shops and harbour and for travelling to other Northumberland sites and castles on the coastal route.

Being able to park off road and immediately outside was much appreciated. Having the access and parking space measurements in advance meant that we knew our Skoda Karoq would fit, although anything much larger might not.

    I have nothing bad to say. The cottage was just like a home from home. It was extremely clean, very well equipped, two good sized double bedrooms in fact one is a king size and the other a twin that can be made up as a super king size. The bathroom is fabulous. The kitchen has everything you need. I was a little concerned about the parking situation from the description given on Sykes as it sounded like you could only park a small car there. We have a Nissan Qashqai and I managed to park it ok. The cottage is a short walk from the main street and harbour in Amble where there are some nice eateries and pubs. We also stumbled across the Amble Inn which is just out of Amble great value for money. This was our first time to Northumberland and we loved it. Stunning coastline and Canny Cottage was just perfect for my wife and I. Would certainly stay there again.

    The bathroom is spacious and has a large separate shower as well as the lovely free standing bath. Large front bedroom with a very comfortable king-size bed. Pre-arrival information was useful and informative. Others have mentioned the parking and yes it is a little tight but unless you have a large 4x4 you should have no difficulty, I was easily able to reverse our Ford Focus into the parking area. The cottage is a 5 minute walk to the nearest Co-op and there’s a Tesco express another 2 minutes down the road. The Wellwood Arms is just round the corner and worth a visit. Easy walk to Warkworth, and Alnmouth is only a short drive away for trains to Edinburgh (an hours journey) if you fancy going further afield. I very much recommend a stay at Canny Cottage.

    Extremely clean and comfortable as well as being very well equipped. It was very well placed for getting out and about without having to use the car all the while. Lovely walks, Nature reserves on the doorstep and Amble has a lovely holiday feel.

The property

A traditional mid-terrace cottage situated on an quiet lane close to the centre of Amble, known locally as ‘the friendliest port’.

Nicely-presented throughout, being close to local amenities as well as the harbour, making it an excellent base for friends or families wishing to explore this delightful part of Northumberland.

The property boasts an open plan sitting area with plenty of comfy sofas, a good-sized dining area and a spacious well equipped kitchen.

Upstairs there are two pleasant comfortable bedrooms with a large family bathroom.

To the outside is a choice of areas, with a courtyard to the front and to the back with furniture, making it a great place for some alfresco dining or relaxing with a glass of something chilled.

The vibrant port village of Amble is just a five minute stroll away and offers an array of pubs, restaurants and takeaways all serving good food and beverages.

Just a short walk from one of the area's most popular harbours and marinas, the cottage makes an ideal base from which to explore Northumberland's beautiful Heritage Coast, countryside and castles.

A short drive from your cottage will take you to the coastal villages of Craster and Alnmouth, or perhaps spend a day in the popular market town of Alnwick with its imposing castle and famous gardens.

Whatever you decide to do, your cottage is a terrific place for a wonderful holiday at any time of the year.

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.
