  • "Really lovely accommodation."

    Nice and clean. Complimentary tea and coffee which was a nice touch upon arriving. Great welcome book with all instructions needed as well as some great games and toys for kids and adults alike. Good communication too with a welcoming text.

  • "This cottage is outstanding, the best I have ever stayed."

    In. it is immaculate, the tea coffee etc was welcoming, the owners lovely. I was worried when I found it was next to a pub and on the main road, I like my sleep, but I need not worry as there was little to no noise. I feel a three star is very unjust, it deserves more at least 4 or 4 +. It really was home from home. The parking is at the back down a narrow lane but that was never an issue and at least I had a parking space , which we have been caught out with before, one time I was a half mile walk from my car. Can not wait to stay there again.

  • "Lovely cottage, we weren't sure when we saw the cottage tucked between a pub and a vape shop, with a fish shop and another pub a few doors away but as soon as we were in the cottage with the lovely enclosed garden for wilbur the dog and for sitting in, it was beautifully quiet and peaceful."

    Good position for walking along the coast.

  • "The property was exactly as described and provided a very comfortable stay."

    One very minor criticism was that the bath towels provided were a little on the small side. A welcome pack was provided which was a lovely touch and the owners texted us to let us know the property was ready.

  • "Amazing old cottage with many modern facilities."

    The owners have kept it to a high standard. The bedrooms all have comfortable beds, the bathroom is modern, clean, with a great shower. The kitchen has everything you need including washing machine and dishwasher. The garden is lovely and perfect for sitting out in. Also safe if taking dogs as we did. Can’t recommend it highly enough.

    Amble is a lovely harbour town and it is so easy to walk to from here. The house was larger than I thought and very comfy and welcoming. We all enjoyed being there and would definitely return again

    Reviewed by PaulineSep 2021

  • "The property is very spacious and clean."

    The leisure access was a great bonus. The only issue I think should be made clearer is that the property is next to a pub. There was some slight noise disturbance on the friday/ Saturday but nothing that stopped us sleeping and not until late. Other than that the property met all our needs and it was lovely to be able to walk to restaurants, shops and the coast easily.

  • "A deceptively large cottage, comfortable and spacious; allowing the entire family to enjoy a relaxing holiday without being on top of each other."

    Victoria Cottage was spotlessly clean and sumptuously furnished, making it the perfect base from which to explore the beauty and wonder of Northumberland. The owners were available via phone for anything we needed or to answer questions, and welcomed us into the home with a care package that included fresh flowers, tea, coffee, milk, bread and butter. What more could you ask. The off-road parking is tight but doable, even in our SUV. Quick tip: reversing up the drive having deposited the passengers at the end does make things easier. When we visit the area again, we'd definitely seek another stay in Victoria Cottage; not sure you could do better.

  • "Lovely comfortable cottage with loads of room and everything you might expect."

    The only negative was that the rooms were a little dark but this was due to the position of the house and otherwise everything was excellent. The garden was particularly nice and great for the dog as completely enclosed. Amble is a nice place with loads of different eateries and a great base for exploring Northumberland.

  • "For the money we paid for we expect it to be a better, the back door does not open fully as it only opens two thirds making it difficult to go through especially when you have a baby, also when you use this door it hits the boxed section and swings back hitting you, the shower is antiquated and dirty, the property is on a main road with heavy traffic which means when you open the bedroom window you hear all the noise in the early morning."

    The pub is not 1 min away it bang next door, when they have functions on you can hear it, and you also get the noise from rowdy people leaving the pub, if we had known properly about this we would have booked elsewhere,

Amble is an absolute gem and I fully recommended this holiday accommodation and locale.

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.
