    This is a lovely cottage really close to a great beach. It is so close that if you set off from the front door of the cottage at the time you started reading this review, you would be at the beach by now. The communication by the owner was spot on before we turned up, with her letting me know of some of the places to visit in Amble. I rate the beaches in Northumberland as some of the best in the UK, especially if you have a dog as you can find miles of mostly untouched beaches great for exercising dogs and even humans. The cottage is really nice with nice touches such as WiFi, a log burner and a digital radio. Yes there is no outside garden to sit in in the evening, but then again if you have a beach literally a stones throw away then that is not a problem. Amble is a pleasant 30 minute walk away along the dunes and beach, and it has all you need including a lot of really top notch places to eat such as The Fat Mermaid and Jaspers. Plus there's places like Alnmouth, Anwick and Warksworth near by which are all wroth a visit. The cottage is also on the Northumberland coastal path so you can follow this either way out of the front door to get to more stunning beaches and scenery. All in all a great cottage in a lovely part of the world.

The property

This delightful, semi-detached cottage sits in a splendid location overlooking Low Hauxley beach, 1.5 miles south of the busy fishing port of Amble.

Set just yards from the beach, with wonderful views across the sea from the first floor, this is the ideal setting for couples and families seeking a relaxing seaside getaway.

On the ground floor of this wonderful cottage is a well-equipped kitchen and a spacious sitting room with a dining area, exposed stone walls and a cosy woodburning stove for those chillier evenings by the sea.

Make your way upstairs and you will find two welcoming bedrooms, along with a bathroom where you can enjoy a relaxing soak at the end of a long day touring the vast, beautiful county of Northumberland.

About the location


Amble 1.5 miles; Alnwick 11 miles.

The hamlet of Low Hauxley is situated at the northern end of Druridge Bay, a four-mile stretch of sand dunes and white sands. Less than two miles away is the seaside port of Amble, which is situated at the mouth of the River Coquet and offers a marina, a harbour, sandy beaches and coastal walks. Just 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 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.
