    Lovely cottage, really enjoyed the sun room only thing to feed back was the quality of the pillows, felt really cheap and hard

    Thanks for the feedback and I’m sorry you didn’t find the pillows comfortable They are all new and ‘hotel quality’ and sadly not cheap but I will take a look. To be fair I’ve never slept on them so appreciate your feedback Property Owner

    I know the cleaners have a lot to do but I ended up cleaning out the cutlery drawers and putting everything through the dishwasher as full of crumbs, the grill was left dirty and when I went to clean the toilets accidentally knocked over the brush holder and it was full of brown water

    I’m very sorry to hear your feedback on the cleaning. You should not have to be doing that on your holiday. The cleaning is normally to an exceptionally high standard and so I do not know what has happened here. I will speak to the cleaners and make sure they are checking these things Thanks for your feedback. Please accept our apologies The owners Property Owner

    It's in a fabulous position. I only gave NC&C 5 as they didn't answer my phone calls or reply to my email.

  • "We’ve been visiting the property for a few years and are impressed with the refurbishment carried out by the new owners."

    Small niggles such as lack of seating on the decking could be rectified quite easily but it was an issue for us when all 7 wished to socialise and enjoy the view from the rear garden. However, all in all, a lovely, comfortable, clean and well equipped house with spectacular views.

    Thanks for your feedback and glad you liked the refurbishment. Apologies that there was not enough outside seating. We had ordered 2 new benches but only one has been delivered and we are still awaiting the second. The old ones had rotted! I’m now pleased to report that the 2 new benches are in situ !

  • "We absolutely love this cottage."

    Came in 2021 and can see the improvements in carpets, sofas and beds. Great location. Wonderful sun room and views from the garden. Saw two dolphins from the top bench in the garden. A very special place. Thank you and we'll be back.

  • "In general an excellent holiday property with everything needed for our party of seven."

    Unfortunately we had issues with the downstairs bathroom drainage even though the guidance on useage was adhered to. This did not get resolved before the end of our stay leaving the second bathroom unusable. Overall a lovely property and superb location ! Would definitely stay again.

    Thank you for your feedback and I can only apologise about the issues with the toilet. Unfortunately the previous guests didn’t follow the guidelines and had been flushing nappies down the toilet which blocked the drain Property Owner

  • "This was our 2nd visit to this cottage."

    Although we enjoyed the first visit in February, since the refurbishment with all new furnishings, carpets etc it is a truly wonderful , comfortable and really special place to stay. The location is fabulous within a 2 min walk from a beach where you can collect sea glass, only 10 min walk into Amble and you can just stay in and enjoy the changing seascape in the sun room. Everything provided was new , the towels were a bonus and a great size too. New benches were also delivered while we were there adding even more comfort to the outdoor deck. 5 stars given and well deserved for this property. Will have to save up to return next year.

    Thank you so much for your feedback. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay. We have finally got the cottage as we would have wanted it and are now proud owners of somewhere that we ourselves would be delighted to stay Property Owner

  • "We stayed last year but since the upgrade this is now the best cottage ever, and we have stayed in lots over the past ten years."

    The view is totally fantastic for watching the sea and the upgrade in the house itself makes it a five star cottage.

  • "A well equipped and comfortable house in a great position, with lovely sea views."

    Very good for dogs, with coastal walks from the house, an Amble centre a pleasant walk away. We are highly likely to book again.

  • "The house was in a fantastic location and could be a really lovely property, but it was very tried and could do with a proper deep clean - there was cobwebs and dust everywhere."

    Also there was building work taking place directly opposite the house and we feel it would have been considerate to give guests the heads up on this - particularly as it was noisy at times and the builders would randomly appear on the property using the outside water tap etc.

    Thanks for the feedback. You will be pleased to know that the house has now had a full upgrade at our first opportunity given the bookings. The house is now lovely and the building work that you should have been made aware of over the road is now completed. Hope you will revisit and see for yourself the improvements Property Owner

The property

FULLY REFURBISHED SPRING 2023!! Nestled into the picturesque coast of Northumberland and overlooking the beautiful bay of Amble, Island View is an ideal holiday home for a family or group of adults who love to spend time at the beach.

Be welcomed by stunning views of the Amble dunes and coast, enjoying the salty air as you unpack with ease from an off-road spot.

Make yourself at home in the sitting room, where natural light streams through the windows and a traditional fireplace houses a welcoming woodburning stove, an ideal spot for relaxing in an evening with a glass of your favourite beverage and catching up on your go-to TV shows.

When mealtimes call, a kitchen decorated in pastel green with a great selection of home-from-home amenities is a great space for guests to cook together, and you can enjoy your meal at the dining table, beside a leather sofa and glass doors opening up into the sunroom, an ideal place to settle down with a coffee and enjoy the beautiful dune and ocean views through the large windows.

Freshen up in the bathroom before settling down for the night in one of the four bedrooms, including a king-size, a double, a twin and a single, each with their own character and charm.

Enjoy alfresco dining with a spectacular view across the sea in the garden, where a neat gravel area offers seating and scenic backdrops to breakfast in the sunshine.

Amble is a terrific seaside town and there will be plenty of activities for you to enjoy, beginning with the town centre itself, where there is a range if eateries, independent shops and a convenience store, and from here you can visit Amble South Pier or take a walk beside Amble Marina.

There is a fantastic beach within a short distance of the property, and you can explore the coast of Northumberland further with a boat trip to Coquet Island, an RSPB nature reserve located just off the coast.

Travel a little further and you will find scenic walks around Warkworth Castle and Hauxley Nature Reserve, or you can visit the historic market town of Alnwick.

Make a family getaway to remember with a stay at Island View.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £300.

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.
