    Great location in easy walking distance to the town centre of Amble as well as the harbour and beaches. Would definitely recommend.

  • "Felt like home from home the minute we got there."

    Appreciated all the little extras i.e. milk in the fridge, tea/coffee tray. Parking was not an issue at all. Co-op supermarket was 2 minutes away. Ideal location to visit the Northumberland coast. Buses to Alnwick frequent if you don't wish to drive. Amble is a lovely base. Warkworth Castle a must and only a mile and half away. Amy as a contact was reassuring. Outside space limited, but we didn't really need it for our holiday. Would highly recommend.

    So glad you enjoyed your stay at Coras. We look forward to welcoming you back ! Property Owner

    Plentiful, good quality kitchen equipment, spacious kitchen, lovely bedding and towels and amazingly quiet for a small terraced house. Tiny shared yard, unsuitable for dogs, but only a two minute walk to grassy area and 5 minutes from The Braid and Harbour. Would definitely recommend and return.

  • "No complaints."

    Coras has everything you need for a comfortable break. It was positioned perfectly for visiting the shops and restaurants of Amble. There was never any problem parking, though it wasn't always right at the door. It was especially good not to have to buy washing up liquid, bin bags etc. Very generous to provide all these things. Good to have milk waiting in the fridge, and a little selection of biscuits.

  • "It was a beautiful property, the bathroom and kitchen were done to a very high standard."

    It was lovely to stay local to family over the festive period. There is a bit of damp in the property but it looks like it's been treated just needs covering. However that doesn't effect the use of the house! The high ceilings make the house feel bigger and as a family of 5, I thought it was going to be a squeeze in a 2 bed house. However it was perfect for all of us! It's in a perfect location especially for family dog walks down to the beach which was enjoyed by all, especially the dog. There was everything you needed to cook, clean and live comfortably. The only thing we needed to buy was food. The beds were very comfortable and the towels were soft and fluffy. We noticed that a lot of essentials were sustainable alternatives instead of one use options. There were also things sourced responsibly like the dishwasher tablets. The option to recycle was great as it isnt always. We will definitely be back!

    Hello Lucy! Thank you for your feedback. So glad you enjoyed your time at Coras. Just to let you know. The small patch of damp has been treated. The cottage was due for a freshen up with decorating just after you left. It’s now ready for the season ahead. We look forward to welcoming you back. Property Owner

    Found the stripping of 3 beds a bit of a rush with 3 of us trying to get showered, have breakfast and be out of the cottage by 10:00. At £300 for a 2 night stay, bed stripping is really the job of the property owners/housekeeping.

    All furnishings and fittings were first first class especially in the kitchen where absolutely everything was provided. The shower room was also very well appointed. The cleanliness was faultless thanks to Amy. Excellent location, especially for walking our dog and sightseeing. Amble is a delightful place and perfect for exploring the Northumberland coastline and all it has to offer. There was one small downside to this glowing review and that was the television. Excellent equipment, but a total inability to watch anything in the conventional manner. It absolutely defeated me as has.been reported in other reviews. I have since been informed by Amy that a new aerial is to be installed next week. Robert Martin.

    Co op not far away. To the harbor 10 Min by foot. My dog felt happy, at the end of the street is a big lawn where he could run without a lead. You shareing the backyard of the cottage with 2 other familys, but nobody used it. The batroom and shower was a dream but the mattress has to replaced. It is not more comfortable. Otherwise i could recommend Cora's cottage.

The property

Resting near the coast in Amble, Northumberland is this charming, mid-terrace cottage of Coras House.

The wonderful abode is a superb base for a family of five wanting to make the most of Northumberland's idyllic coastline.

Make your way inside to find a pleasant living/dining room and be enveloped by the warmth of the electric fire; switch on the Smart TV and cosy up on the sofa for the evening.

When you're feeling a little peckish, progress through the property to the kitchen, a space enjoying grey, shaker-style cabinets that offer an array of appliances that will make any self-catering stay a breeze!

When dinner has been enjoyed, take it over to the neighbouring, fold-leaf dining table and crack open a bottle of wine to toast to this seaside escape!

As the day comes to an end, climb the stairs to find two well-appointed bedrooms, with one hosting a triple bunk, a double with single over, that enjoys a nautical theme, and the other being a double that features pretty touches.

Nearby is a brilliant shower room that enjoys metro tiling and contemporary facilities, including a spacious, glass shower and a countertop basin.

Being a short distance from Amble's high street means you've got all your amenities at your feet, including several eateries and shops.

Amble is also home to a delightful harbour, where you can spend some time boat-spotting, before wandering down to the beach and marina for some fun in the sun; the town isn't far from the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, meaning ample beaches, footpaths and cycleways are just moments away!

Why not pay the village of Warkworth a visit, with its medieval castle ruins providing entertaining, audio tours and the winding River Coquet offering a quaint, riverside footpath, where you can spot the fascinating landmark of Warkworth Hermitage on a stroll.

For even more coastal fun, travel a little further afield to Seahouses, a large village offering boat tours to the enchanting Farne Islands, guided walks around the village where you can learn of the area's history and The Bunker, an amusement centre that is bound to entertain the little ones!

There are many settlements waiting to be explored in Northumberland such as Morpeth, Alnwick, Bamburgh and Alnmouth, just to name a few, whilst the Northumberland National Park can also be reached, with its abundance of outdoors activities.

Treat yourself and loved ones to a memorable break at Coras House.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £50.

About the location

AMBLE

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.
