    It was so quiet though it was close to the Main Street and the harbour. Plenty of shops and restaurants close by and great markets down at the harbour Saturday and Sunday. Would recommend this place to anyone.

    We had a lovely stay over the Christmas period. The apartment was well appointed, clean and very cosy, and well-equipped with everything we needed. The apartment is excellently sited near the harbour and restaurants/pubs etc, and the private parking was a bonus. We thoroughly enjoyed our break. Thank you, again.

    Apartment very well furnished very clean and warm, it has everything we could need. It has parking for a car, ; centrally located near shops and Marina and lovely walks nearby. We walked to Warkworth and also to Huxley and when on the beaches they are expansive, clean and very few people. A bus service to local towns available (although we may do this next time). We definitely will come again. Thoroughly recommend it

  • "Positives far outweigh any negatives."

    Great location, just 1 minute from main street. Accommodation was good. Bed was comfortable but seating in lounge not so for us, it was too low. We had read previous comments about lack of hot water but we found there was plenty, we both had 2 showers each day, washed up etc. and didn't run out of hot water, if you did there is a booster button. We didn't have any problem parking but can imagine the space might be a little tight for 2 family cars. Amble is a really lovely place, plenty of pubs, places to eat, shops etc. Sunday market was great, lots of really fresh fish. Would recommend.

    The old boat house or fish shack are on opposite ends of the harbour these are great fish and chip restaurants The people in Amble are so friendly too. We look forward to staying again

    So convenient for shops and restaurants. A really good base for going out to explore the area and there are so many places to visit. Everything we needed was supplied at the accommodation. Really good quality bedding and towels, which really makes a difference. Some lovely paintings on the walls too. Really felt like home from home.

    You have to be a resident to take it to the local rubbish tip. I found some car parks in Alnwick & Seahouses have bottle banks but not Amble for some reason.

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.
