  • "Bathroom sink slow running due to dirty hair filled drain, shower was the same."

    Dusty cobwebs everywhere in the cottage and bathroom skirting boards not cleaned covered in dust. A hoover would be great to clean up sand brought in which being a seaside location is inevitable, brush and dust pan no good for older couples ! Oven not cleaned food bits left in the bottom. Would like more essentials, no one wants to take washing up liquid or toilet rolls on holiday, and what was supplied was insufficient for a week! Cafetière obviously for decoration only as we wasted some of our ground coffee as it just poured out the grounds with the water, had to buy one from Morrison’s. Wi-Fi didn’t work used up so much data, on phones as it only came on occasionally and even then was poor connection. Rug in sitting room was dirty too, perhaps not the best colour for a holiday let. The cottage is ‘okay’ but a few small simple changes would easily take it to excellent. Not the best value for money, we stayed in cheaper places in the area with far better facilities and much cleaner.

  • "I loved the fact that the owners didn't come to greet us, I find those encounters a little awkward."

    The cottage was very comfortable and attractive with all the features and services we needed. The peace and quiet was amazing and proximity to Amble brill. A great place to discover or re-discover the wild beauty of the area.

  • "Poor layout - shower/toilet at opposite end of building to bedroom [long walk during night] ."

    Same problem with kitchen [long walk from dining table]. Inadequate supply of washing up liquid for 1 week.

  • "Beautiful cottage in a lovely peaceful location."

    Very comfortable and well equipped with quality furnishings. We stayed in the cottage next door last year which led us to rebook. The patio area gets sun nearly all day and makes a lovely spot for an evening drink. Nice local walks in beautiful countryside too.

  • "Although the property was in an idea location for us we felt it lacked a welcome feeling if it was the owner who lived on site we felt a knock on the door just to say hello would have been nice, we also felt it lacked a few basic essentials a pint of milk some liquid hand soap and a toilet roll of better quality would have been appreciated, it was definitely the most basically equipped in that way that we have stayed in over recent years."

  • "On first day of holiday we had 9" of snow in Rotherham so before we set off we telephoned Sykes to see if they could check weather conditions in Amble."

    The customer service we received from the first lady we spoke to was nothing short of scandalous. Fortunately on ringing back we got a better response.

  • "Lovely cottage, had everything we needed."

    Furniture all comfortable, very clean & tidy. We had sun all day sat outside, the town was walkable via a footpath at the back of the farm. Would really recommend it.

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.
