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.

The cottage is situated on the National Coast and Castles cycle route, so why not spend a day touring the superb castles of this historic area?

On sunnier days, simply open the door and within a minute you will be on a beautiful Northumberland beach, so take the windbreak, dogs, children and a picnic and your day is sorted!

To the north, the busy fishing village of Amble is easily accessible, with an array of pubs, restaurants and takeaways all serving good food and beverages.

This beachside cottage is perfectly positioned for anyone wishing to visit the Heritage Coast and the surrounding area.

Visit historic Warkworth Castle, just two miles away, take a leisurely drive to the coastal villages of Craster and Alnmouth, or explore popular Alnwick with its imposing castle.

An excellent cottage for a seaside break.

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.
