    Great service. The house is in the most wonderful position with the outlook over the sea, there was nothing missing in the house you could possibly need for your holiday. Amble and surrounding area is stunning we walked for miles with our 2 little dogs and all pubs and cafés were very dog friendly. We are already planning to return next year.

  • "The house was pleasant and the place was lovely however the on road parking is a problem as the local residents around the house seem to think that they actually own the road telling us that we should only bring one car."

    when returning to the house one day I parked in a spot which was vacant which happened to be outside one of their houses and got a load of abuse even though their cars regularly parked outside the house we were staying in there is room at this house to possibly make off road parking by using the garden at the side this should be considered as we will not return or recommend because I do not like being told what I can and cannot do on a public highway by ignorant residents

    It was comfy, clean, has everything you need & very dog friendly. It even has full Sky with sport. Fantastic location with view of the sea. Bonus having the side garden for the dogs with bench for morning coffee! Great grassy area down to a small beach. (larger ones within easy walking distance).The beaches are wonderful & Amble is really friendly. We had an issue with the boiler & the owners did everything to get it fixed - thank you.

    But thought we would try this location as it was on the edge of one of our favourite towns . It was perfect. For an end terrace property With a sea view, a park just outside the front door is perfect for families.. It was very quiet, has a secure garden for the dog, and a yard ... perfect for washing the dog down after walks on the endless dog friendly beach’s . absolutely everything we needed for our stay.

    It was very well equipped with plenty of pans and baking trays etc., as we like to cook for ourselves. An added bonus for us was that there was somewhere to store our bikes (we were cycling on the coast and castles cycle route). There was plenty of space for our dogs and the position of the cottage was excellent for dog walks on the green and on nearby beaches. We were also pleasantly surprised to find a full sky package on the TV, which gave us a choice of films to watch in the evenings and enabled my husband to watch formula 1 on Sunday. We were so impressed with the cottage and the lovely town of Amble that we have re-booked the cottage for next year.

    We enjoyed relaxing in the cottage, it is very warm and cosy, plenty of hot water for a long soak in the bath. The main double bed was extremely comfy and we slept very well. It is very quiet in the cottage and has parking outside. The Tv is superb, with sky tv, and sky good speed WiFi, to enable you to plan day visits using the internet each night. The property is comfy, a high standard of renovation to a lovely holiday cottage. Lucca our weimaraner loved the cottage, and its closeness to the harbour bar area for walks. Well situated after long days walking on the beaches at alnmouth, druridge, low newton, bamburgh, and days out at craster, seahouses, warkworth and alnwick. We cooked a hot meal each evening, 4 frying pans, 1 milk pan 2 very large stock pans and utensils were in the kitchen. Only criticism is the kitchen could have done with 1-2 medium size pans, and a medium or large casserole dish. We had to buy disposable foil casserole dishes from queens street hardware store. A bread bin may be good too. We still managed to make lovely evening meals each night. We only had one really wet day, when we rested in the afternoon at the cottage, after a morning exploring Amble in the rain and drizzle. We purchased a children's draughts set which we left with the cottages jigsaws on the bookcase. We love Amble which is really friendly and welcoming, queen street barkery does lovely gluten free cakes. We love the village cafe in Alnmouth staffed by people from Amble, who are very dog friendly and they do fab coffee and gluten free cakes, for each afternoon with a loyalty card buy 5 drinks get 6th free. Alnwick is close by for Sainsburys, Aldi and Lidl to buy in our main shopping for weekly food for breakfast and evening meals. Lucca, our weimaraner is made welcome in Northumberland, especially in Amble which is really dog friendly. He loves walks on the beaches daily. We are both disabled walking with one and myself 2 arm crutches. so find druridge, alnmouth, bamburgh, and low newton beaches very accessible. This is our third Sykes cottage holiday in Northumberland we love staying in Amble as our base. Of course we will be back at Amble, with Sykes, we were sad we hadn't booked a two week break. Unfortunately Lightkeeper House is so popular it often doesn't have a 2 week slot available, so 1 week had to be booked instead of 2 weeks. This is the best and most homely and comfy Sykes cottage we have stayed in so far, we will be 're booking soon for next year. The visitors book is full of wonderful comments by people who loved the cottage and want to return again.

The property

This traditional end-terrace cottage is located in the conservation area of the vibrant fishing village of Amble.

Renovated to a good standard, this Amble cottage offers views over the scenic Northumberland coast towards Coquet Island, and is an ideal base for a family or a group of friends.

Tastefully decorated, this Amble cottage has two large bedrooms complete with a family bathroom benefiting from a rain shower.

The comfortable living area features a warming woodburner, perfect for cosy evenings, and with WiFi and a TV with Sky movies and sports package, guests are sure to be kept entertained.

French doors lead to the enclosed rear yard, plus a grassed side garden boasts unrestricted views of the coast and is an ideal spot for warmer evenings.

This Amble cottage is perfectly located for access to the dog-friendly beach, and here you will discover a pretty little cove with rock pools that little ones will delight in.

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 - the daily catch can be bought at a fish shop in the harbour. 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.
