  • “This is the second time that we have stayed in The Retreat.”

    The property is in a quiet area of the town but a couple of minutes walk from both the nearest beach and the main shopping street. Perfect for those of us with younger children. Were blessed with the weather for the two weeks we were there which made the holiday even better. ...

    The property is in a quiet area of the town but a couple of minutes walk from both the nearest beach and the main shopping street. Perfect for those of us with younger children. Were blessed with the weather for the two weeks we were there which made the holiday even better. The previous renters had taken a cable which meant the DVD couldn't work but the property owners had a new DVD player and cable at the house almost immediately. I can't fault the service and the comms are always prompt and helpful. Would highly recommend.

The property

A charming end of terrace cottage in a premier position in Amble, just a few hundred yards from the North Sea.

Tastefully presented, this comfortable cottage offers a backdrop of vibrant florals and sparkling overhead lights; a well-positioned base for a couples or friends wishing to explore Northumberland.

This holiday cottage has been refurbished to a high standard, and offers four bedrooms, including a king-size double room with sea views, plus a family bathroom with a walk in shower, as well as a ground floor cloakroom.

The front entrance leads to a dining area with a staircase to the first floor, while the kitchen to the rear of the cottage has a sleek, modern feel, a great place to rustle up a tasty treat for all the party.

The spacious sitting area makes a cosy retreat after a long hard day on the beach, whilst the warming multi-fuel stove is perfect to curl up in front of on chillier evenings.

2 Blackwood Street overlooks a grassy area which leads to the seashore, a great spot for kids to play or to take the dogs for that longed-for walk.

The increasingly-popular port of Amble has something for everyone; discover the pretty coastal villages of Alnmouth and Craster, visit picturesque Warkworth just a mile away, or take in Alnwick Castle and its impressive garden, just a fifteen minute drive along unspoilt, scenic roads.

A superb base for friends or family to gather for a holiday by the sea.

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.
