  • "We had a lovely stay at coquet cottage despite the poor weather."

    The house was clean, nicely decorated and well maintained with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Amble is a lovely seaside town/ fishing port. There are plenty of shops, pubs and restaurants catering for every taste, although I found the fish restaurants expensive. Plenty of walking routes and a good Base To visit attractions in the area, there is a good bus service nearby if you want to leave the car. All in all a very good stay and would recommend.

  • "Comfortable cottage in friendly town, I visit Northumberland every few months for a week of walking and this is the second time I have stayed in Amble."

    It’s a friendly town with all amenities and some great walks and fabulous beaches close by. Coquet Cottage is a cosy well equipped base in a very quiet street a couple of minutes walk from the main high street.

    Could do with redecoration in places, but that doesn't really matter too much. Some sort of washing line outside would be useful. Says 2 parking spaces but in theory its first come first served parking on the street. One day had to park round the corner but not an issue for us. Kitchen and dining room floors could have been cleaned better. We went over them with floor wipes which came up brown. Overall a good base for exploring the area.

  • "The cottage or mid terrace house was dark and depressing."

    We also had difficulty parking as it was a well used residential street. I have rheumatoid arthritis and as there was no downstairs toilet this was a problem, also shower over bath, as had difficulty getting in and out. However we loved the area and spent as little time as possible at the property. After the lovely accommodation we had at Chepstow last September we found this property very disappointing.

    We are sorry to hear the property disappointed you, our feedback is usually excellent. The description does say that the parking is roadside, though the availability of this hasn't been raised as a problem before. We have had a brand new bathroom fitted upstairs as photographed with the shower over the bath, no downstairs toilet is listed. We are glad you enjoyed the local area. Property Owner

    The map showing where it is in the town was misleading but that didn't really matter because locals were so friendly and helpful. One minor point, though we don't see how it can be reasonably changed, was the difficulty we had using the shower. Our daughter had no difficulty, but my husband and myself could not turn the knob to turn the shower on. We are both over 80 and our wrists are not as strong as they used to be. Just something to look for when arranging the letting. Lovely friendly local people.

    Comfortable beds and one of the few cottages, that we have stayed at, with good mirrors and lighting for make-up/shaving. Excellent base for local attractions and good restaurants. Small back yard with plants in pots and bench, which gets the sun in the afternoon. No space for children to play in yard. People with mobility problems may find steepness of stairs and step arrangement from bedrooms to bathroom awkward, especially at night. The house is on a quiet street but there is no off-road parking and parking is at a premium, especially on Sundays! We enjoyed our stay and, judging by the comments in the visitor's book, so have many others!

    The only downside was the kitchen, which had no full size oven (there was a convection oven and microwave) and was very compact with hard to reach cupboards that were rather high. However, feedback from the owners in the visitor book suggests they plan to knock through into the existing second bathroom to extend the kitchen space and enhance its convenience/use of space. I feel this would be a great plan and if this work were completed we would rebook without hesitation. Overall we loved the Victorian charm of the property, the cleanliness and everything else about it! It is only a short walk from Amble harbour village and only a short drive away from all of Northumberland's scenic treasures.

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.
