    Close to all the amenities and only a short walk to the sea front. Would stay here again and advice the property to others.

    We would certainly recommend to others. The only problem was poor tv reception, which was a drawback on rainy days with a 6 year old!

    We were aware of the type of building as we had viewed it on Google earth but I would not describe it as a cottage.

    Very central on a quiet street so near the coast, the harbour and park for the grandchildren.

  • "Silversands is the perfect place to stay, it is spotlessly clean and very comfortable."

    The house is close to all the amenities in Amble and not far from other attractions like Alnwick, Alnmouth and Warkworth. We took our dog and she enjoyed Silversands and the beaches too. We would highly recommend The Fish Shack to eat amazing fish ( lots on the specials board) and dog friendly too.

  • "Very good property with clear instructions and advice, how to use the facilities."

    The facilities are very good quality, there is no skimping as we have see elsewhere. The property is clean and cared for. It is located near enough to the harbour and to the town centre to walk to, far enough out to avoid difficult to parking or noise (at least in January). The boiler was a bit noisy in the back bedroom, so we slept in the front. This is the only negative and by no means a show stopper. Overall very happy with the property and would stay there again.

  • "This beautiful cottage has been my best experience with Sykes so far."

    Beautifully presented, spotlessly clean and extremely well provisioned with new looking crockery, cutlery and glassware it was a real pleasure to stay here and very easy to prepare my own meals etc. The welcome pack is a very thoughtful addition. I really liked that stairgates had been put in to assist keeping dogs downstairs. The outside space is small and paved so my dog couldn't use it for toileting or exercise but this wasn't an issue as there are large, grassy areas about a 90 second walk from the door. It was a real treat to stay at such a lovely cottage with my dog. Location is fantastic, Amble it lovely, the beach at Cresswell is amazing and beautiful Warkworth on the doorstep. I'll definitely recommend this one.

    Amble itself is a lovely place with lots of places to eat and shop, our favourite way to end the day was to go for a lovely walk around the harbour, there was always something new to see. The short walk along the river Coquet was gorgeous. This is the second time we have stayed at Amble and our cottage was absolutely perfect. A lovely surprise was the bottle of wine left for us, it was greatly appreciated. We will certainly be returning when we are able. Many Thanks

  • "Everything was perfect with the cottage."

    We've stayed in several other cottages that claim to be family friendly - but this was without doubt by far the best and the owners had quite clearly carefully considered what families with young children need. One slight niggle would be the key code door - it's quite noisy - the fact it talks to you every time you open and close it. But that's being very picky! The level of information we received was great - will definitely be using Sykes Cottages again.

    I wanted to re arrange this holiday due to a family issue but was told that a large percentage of the cost would be retained if I did and I could not afford for that to happen and then pay for another holiday. The cottage was lovely though.

    It was in a good position to use as a base exploring the Northumberland coast. We went out on the boat trip run by Puffin Cruises to Coquet Island where there were a variety of birds including puffins, roseate teens and seals. We also saw a pod of dolphins. We also visited Bamburgh Castle, Alnwick gardens and some National Trust properties. The weather could have been better but the cottage was warm and well equipped and a comfortable place to come back to after each day out.

    This cottage is the nicest cottage so far, it felt very relaxing, comfortable & we settled straight away, as did our dog Lucca. It is very warm & cosy, the heating system works efficiently to keep the cottage warm & welcoming in the evening when returning back at the cottage. The beds are amazingly comfy and we slept very well. The cottage was spotless, and easy to keep clean and tidy, very well designed. The smart TV & WiFi made our stay in the evenings active, whilst sitting with our tired dog after our walks on the beaches. The kitchen was very well equipped, because we have food allergies and our dog on holiday with us, we tend to eat in and cook our evening meals. The only thing it lacked was a grabrail on the bath wall to support transfers into the bath and for use of the overbath shower, as the bath is deep to step in and out. The owners Aaron & Michelle were very supportive, they contacted us to ensure we'd got the door lock number and to confirm if we had any issues or difficulty with the electric lock mechanism, to ring them back. The lock was fine and not difficult to use on our arrival. We have just 're booked to return to Silversands Cottage at Amble in February 2017 and always book our cottage through Sykes.

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.
