  • "The cottage was well equipped and met our expectations in most respects."

    We enjoyed the excellent position of the cottage close to the harbour and town centre, The estuary views were lovely at sunset. We appreciated the availability of equipment and basic essentials in the kitchen. The pod coffee maker was not used because we find this an expensive and unsatisfactory way of making coffee. We ended up buying ourselves a cafetière to make filtered coffee. The heating schedule was limited, coming on late morning and afternoon.

    Thank you for your feedback it is much appreciated. I’m sorry that you felt that the Pod coffee maker is not to your liking. However I purchased it as a result of previous guests requesting one to be provided. I’m sure you enjoyed your coffee non the less. To explain fully the heating settings are as follows. 20 degrees from 7.45 am to 9.15 am Also 5.00 pm to 11.15pm. All other times the heating is set to 18 degrees. Most people are out of the house during these times in the day time. Guests are able to alter these settings to suit themselves with the simple to use thermostat either higher or lower. These settings are in line with government recommendations for normal use, particularly with the current hike in energy prices. These settings and how to change them is fully explained in the house ‘How to guide’ found in the living room Additionally the house has a 8 kw log burner capable of heating the entire house to 25 degrees as happened during the Beast from the east! Approx 3 days worth of logs are also provided . Property Owner

    Well situated for both the town and coast. The property was very clean, really well equipped and well maintained.

  • "I think this is our 4th stay at Redgate which says a lot."

    Great facilities and location only used the car once. Only disappointing thing is a 5pm check in it used to be 2 which is ideal to unload car and get out. Also there were only enough logs for one night where usually there is enough for about 3 nights.

    Thanks for your mainly positive feedback, The 5pm check in is a Sykes cottages arrangement for all cottages to allow house keepers the extra time to clean. Now we are coming out of restrictions I see this changing. I apologise for the lack of logs, our housekeeper should fill the log box and obviously they didn’t. I will remind them especially in winter months. There is a tel number you can ring if anything is not to your satisfaction at the time. Our housekeepers would come out and rectify things for you. They prefer that than guests waiting till they get home and then expressing their dissatisfaction. Hope to welcome you again at Redgate or Seascape. Best wishes Owner. Property Owner

  • "Fantastic location with easy parking."

    Warm & cosy, although the beds are a little in need of updating, as they were somewhat uncomfortable. Kitchen well equipped, although we didn’t cook! The bathroom had an amazing rain shower & the water was hit. However, the walls were grubby & needed a good wipe down.

    Thank you for your feedback. We have taken your comments on board and will be having the property repainted in December. New mattress have also been ordered. Property Owner

    There are a lot of pretty villages and properties in the area but it was nice to be part of a community and the harbourside was interesting with excellent bird watching. There are very good restaurants and cafes. There are fabulous beaches very close by. We enjoyed staying at Redgate and hope to return.

  • "Our first visit to Amble and this cottage."

    And our first trip away from home since lockdown, so somewhat trepidatious! Brought loads of stuff from home, but didn’t really need to. The house is in a great harbour front spot - we’d recommend coastal walks, local golf, the Fish Shack just yards away and Lilly’s Landing. Lovely location, friendly people and a very relaxing week thank you.

  • "This is a nice cottage, very well equipped, very clean, and sitting right at the harbour (though still very quiet)."

    We spent Christmas week here and were delighted to find a Christmas tree and a few decorations had been put up for us. That was a lovely touch which was much appreciated. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you could need for a week’s self catering, even at Christmas. There are a couple of things that would take this cottage from a good to a great rating. The mattresses are very soft and the bedding is very old and tired. The thermostat for the central heating is on the wall above the wood burner, so as soon as you light the fire, the central heating switches itself off. Result: cold bedrooms and an unpleasantly cold bathroom. This would be a simple fix - move the thermostat away from the fire!

    Thank you for your comments. All mattresses are Orthopedic Memory Foam and all bedding is shortly being replaced. The Thermostat is set at 25-27 degrees so there should be ample heating throughout property. The radiators can be adjusted individually to allow extra heating. Kind regards Property Owner

    It should be noted that basic staples such as toilet paper, hand soap, laundry soap, and paper towels are not supplied. There is no proper coffee maker. There is a harbor view, but it is over the parking and storage lot of the marina, this is unsightly. The overhead shower is inconvenient.

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.
