  • "Lovely cottage."

    Our third time in Amble and this is the best, most comfortable and best laid out property of the three places we have stayed in. Warm accommodation - in fact got too warm with log fire lit - very large grate, therefore recommend limit the size of the fire made in the grate. Well equipped, including several dog food & water bowls - couldn't fault it. Very close to the beach and harbour - ideal situation.

  • "The house was nice with comfortable seating and beds."

    The thing that let down our comfort was the lack of heating. The weather was cold and wet and the heating, especially upstairs was not good. There was a log burner and we used it every day which meant spending over £30 on logs. The windows let draughts through as well. Front door stiff to open. Recliner chair needs a good clean.The house was well equipped and a nice welcome pack was provided. No contact from owners prior to our stay which was unusual.

  • "We stayed last week November."

    Warm, welcoming and homely. Perfect for us travelling with two hounds. Enough floor space for two dog beds! Welcome pack for dog was lovely, with dog dishes too! Outside space perfect for us, safe enclosed courtyard Well equipped kitchen, and welcome pack. Two minutes walk to coastal path and the great beaches. We enjoyed long beach walks, even if the weather was a tad nippy. Close to shops and pubs, but near coast too, perfect. Would certainly return to this cottage.

    Some things missing - no pegs, no tea towels. Inside of microwave very dirty and smelly and many surfaces dusty. Carpets not properly vacuumed and floor downstairs sticky. Position of the cottage ideal, but having to clean bits of it and search for basics like tea towels a bit annoying after a long drive.

    Dust in the bathroom and the floor downstairs felt it had not been cleaned properly. We had a problem with the lights upstairs (luckily we arrived when it was daylight). This was fixed however only lasted 3 days and the landing one went again and this was not fixed for the rest of our stay. The cooking pans were past there best. The 2 single beds were not very comfy could feel the mattress springs and the sheets felt gritty. We were informed about a damp patch on the ceiling of the back bedroom when they came to fix the electrics and were told it was a missing slate on the roof and hopefully we shouldn't get any rain! There was no hanging space in the back bedroom and the door would not close to give us some privacy. The location is perfect and Amble is a lovely place.

  • "Lovely holiday home, with excellent location for wondering around Amble and sampling the many delights on offer."

    Pity about beach being off limits to dogs during high season 1May>> apart from that very dog friendly area for responsible owners, with many places to sample local fair. House itself clean and comfortable. Added extras like Nespresso Machine great touch, wish I had known in advance. Only issues , not complaints , were staircase a bit steep ( but probably typical for house type ) ,main bed was small double not king size and Central Heating controls a bit mixed up with heating coming on unnecessarily in the middle of the night. Northumberland is a great area and Light Keeper House is a vg base for a holiday. Property owners are doing a good job to make an older property feel more modern with some lovely finishing touches. Would rebook Light Keeper House for another holiday in the future. Thank you for a comfortable base for our holiday.

    The pans were very old and ready for replacing. Outside was even worse the windows are filthy and all around the bottom of the doors need a good clean, the yard at the back hadn’t been swept and needs a good bleaching was very green and probably slippery when wet. The grass in the garden was about a foot long with a pile of rubbish in the corner and the bench was broken old and unusable. My dog was getting bitten by something and couldn’t settle at all! We left the property on Wednesday as we felt so uncomfortable but I can tell you it was a lot cleaner when we left than when we arrived.

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.

This charming Amble cottage is so named because the great-great-grandfather of the owner was the lighthouse keeper of Coquet Island; now a bird sanctuary.

Boat trips from the harbour offer sightseers the chance to pay a call on the resident puffins.

Numerous restaurants and dog-friendly pubs are just a short stroll from your Amble cottage, and you can visit the majestic Alnwick Castle, known as Hogwarts in the popular Harry Potter films, or explore miles of Heritage Coast nearby.

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 - 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.
