  • "Tomeg is a lovely terraced house perfectly located for all the amenities of Amble."

    The house has three bedrooms with very comfortable beds and a lovely large bathroom with a bath and separate shower cubicle. The living room could possibly do with an extra chair for the fifth guest but we managed. The kitchen was ok but I would have liked a dishwasher and tumble dryer and perhaps some small drinking glasses as there were either wine glasses or tumblers. I did have to buy a roasting tray as theirs was tiny so I’ve left it for future guests. Parking at the rear of the property was a bit of a challenge but I found driving in forwards and reversing out of the narrow path worked for me.The neighbours all parked considerately so it wasn’t a problem. Tomeg is on a main road but we didn’t have any noise problems and there’s a Co-op literally over the road. All in all we had a lovely stay in Amble which is a beautiful village that really comes alive on Sundays when the market is on. Warkworth Castle is worth a visit and is only just over a mile away from Tomeg so you can walk along the banks of the river Coquet which has amazing views. Alnwick, Bamburgh and Holy Island are all within an hours drive too. We had a great holiday and would definitely return.

  • "Tomeg is a great base to explore Northumberland."

    We really enjoyed our stay here. My only slight negative was the house wasn't as clean as I would have liked and the kitchenware could do with an update. Otherwise a lovely place, very comfortable with all the home comforts. Good for a family with young children too.

  • "Tomeg was a perfect holiday home."

    The house was clean and comfortable and had all facilities we required. The location close to the town centre and the marina was excellent. We found the neighbours exceptionally friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend Tomeg as a great place to stay in Amble.

  • "Very welcoming, warm, bright and spacious house in a very convenient location."

    Lovely sunny garden and conservatory. The dining kitchen and conservatory is a winning feature I think. For myself, more side lights in the lounge would have been welcome, and definitely darker curtains/blinds in the back bedroom which receives morning sun. The existing ones provide no barrier at all! And while a very very firm mattress is welcome to some, the one on the double bed was excessive. I think that a removable/flexible topper might be the solution. It really was like sleeping on a hard floor. Minor quibbles though (and obviously very personal). This is a lovely house for a holiday and Amble is a very well equipped town to base oneself in.

  • "The accommodation was lovely."

    Great position, spacious and dog friendly. The house is on the high street and you can walk to Warkworth easily or to the port and the next bay. Lots of cafes in the area. We had a great time

  • "Great base to explore seemed to be clean when first got there but first time in shower saw hairs on wall and after first night in bed whent to pick pillow up from the floor wall side saw someone's hair tie and bits of food (I think it was food, I left it all there)."

    I also had to unblock the fridge drain at bottom to let the water out as it smelt bad.

    Great location everything on your doorstep. We will book again as soon as possible and bring our daughter husband and granddaughter. Oh and our cocker spaniel really enjoyed his break particularly walkworth beach and the dog friendly pubs.

  • "It would be useful to add that dogs aren’t allowed upstairs to the listing."

    We spent all week trying to convince our boy he wasn’t allowed - we’d probably not book a cottage with this limitation again. Otherwise a great house in a fantastic location.

    Parking tight at rear but at least it had parking. Could do with wfi. Toilet very low , not very good if you have a disability. Would return.

  • "Our first sight of the cottage was nothing like the picture we saw on-line."

    The house next door to Tomeg was a complete building site, both front and back. Every day the builders arrived at about 9a.m., and banging, sawing and drilling started. We couldn't let our dog in the back garden because half of the gate on the right side had been taken away to allow access to the builders. One of the additions we noticed on-line was a washing machine, this would have been a useful complement to the cottage, but the washing line had been taken away while building work carried on. Therefore the washing machine was useless to us. In our opinion we should have been made aware of the noise and dust, and we would have chosen a different site at Amble.

  • "Parking at back,bit of a tight squeeze."

    Next door building work noisy at times,next door back looks like a bomb site,also no enclosed space at back for dog. House itself was clean and comfortable, although a welcome pack and WiFi would have been a bonus. Close to the town and although main road runs past the front it was quiet.

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.
