“Amblers Rest - A Well Located, Pet Friendly Base.”
We enjoyed a week at Amblers Rest (6 days in fact, due to a confusion over start day). Amble is a great base for a holiday offering decent amenities and the ability to strike out in many directions. Unfortunately, my wife broke her ankle on day 2, which somewhat limited our options - that said, the ground floor apartment couldn't have been handier. Also, we were able to experience the warmth and professionalism of staff at the relatively nearby Ashington and Cramlington hospitals. ...
We enjoyed a week at Amblers Rest (6 days in fact, due to a confusion over start day). Amble is a great base for a holiday offering decent amenities and the ability to strike out in many directions. Unfortunately, my wife broke her ankle on day 2, which somewhat limited our options - that said, the ground floor apartment couldn't have been handier. Also, we were able to experience the warmth and professionalism of staff at the relatively nearby Ashington and Cramlington hospitals. Overall, I'd describe the apartment as clean, adequate and well located. We have stayed in smarter places but these generally don't welcome dogs! The backyard offered a pleasant sun trap for the invalid and servant. Perhaps the one negative was the lack of a washing machine.

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.
