  • "We had a fabulous week, just perfect for us."

    Comfortable, warm, plenty of space. We will be coming back, our dogs enjoyed the beach and walks right from the cottage front door. Didn’t move the car for first few days. Just relaxed, and enjoyed Amble. Ticked all the boxes for us. Oh and the views from the cottage, spectacular!

    Thank you for such a great response! So glad you loved it as we do! Property Owner

    The cottage was the perfect choice. Fabulous views and a lovely homely feel to it, well equipped with everything you need.

    Delighted you enjoyed the cottage so much. We love it too! Property Owner

  • "What a fantastic cottage to stay at for comfort, views and totally relaxing winter break."

    There were 4 of us staying and our dog, so many walks along the beach, pier and breakwater just because we could from the cottage as well as many trips to favourite beaches nearby. The views were just stunning, we have stayed often at Amble over the years even one further down bay view terrace but none as well equipped and picture postcard proximity to the beach. So booked again for same time next year, can't wait.

  • "Fantastic views, very comfortable beds, however uncomfortable sofa."

    Plenty of crockery, but nearly all the mugs were cracked or chipped as well as a couple of plates. Patio windows very draughty which made it chilly whilst admiring the beautiful view. Despite these comments, we have booked to visit again next year.

    Thank you very much for your comment. We will see if there is anything to be done about the draughty patio doors, and replace the chipped and cracked crockery. Glad you are coming back! Property Owner

    Thank you so much for your 100 out of 100 for our cottage. We are delighted that you, and your dog, loved it so much including lying and looking at the view. I call it “food for the spirit.” Perhaps your dog is super sensitive! Sincerely Annette Lawson Property Owner

  • "Lovely property , really clean and love the update since my last visit."

    So nice to have laminate lounge flooring , easier to keep clean with sand from the beach etc Love the new bathroom too ! Had a couple of issues with fridge freezer , internal light only worked periodically and had a big issue when it got accidentally turned off at the mains (assuming someone knocked it off reaching for a coat as it's hidden behind the coat rail) - took me an hour of searching to find the switch , maybe a suggestion to label it "fridge" Other than that , perfect holiday home , my favourite place to bring the children

    Thank you for the great feedback on our cottage in Amble from your visit on 11t August. We will definitely follow your advice about the fridge switch. And what a nuisance. So glad you loved it and found it even more lovely than your previous visit. We hope you and the children will be back. Sincerely, Annette Lawson Property Owner

  • "What a view from the patio and the top floor bedroom."

    The cottage was comfortable and in an ideal place for exploring the area. Loved sitting on the patio and watching the paddle boarders trying to stand up, also an unexpected surprise were the dolphins performing just out of the harbour. I would recommend any one staying in the area to take a look at this cottage.

    Thank you for your lovely comment about your time at our cottage in Amble in June. It must have been wonderful in warm weather to sit on the patio and watch the paddle boarders and dolphins too! Sincerely Annette Lawson Property Owner

    Very comfortable accommodation. There is everything you need to make it a totally stress free break. There is a great coastal path of approx 3 miles to Warkworth Castle which is well worth a look. Overall we were well satisfied with our stay 10/10

    Thank you so much for this lovely comment about our cottage. It is lovely to have your practical suggestion about the 3-mile Warkworth walk too. 10/10 is a wonderful vote for us! Sincerely Annette Lawson Property Owner

  • "A great place to stay, especially if you have a dog as Amble is VERY dog friendly and you are 2 minutes away from letting your dog off the lead for a good walk."

    Although the property is well furnished etc. we had a few problems. The pressure on the boiler was lost resulting in no heating or hot water and we couldn't find the manual telling us how to fix it. To cut a long story short Maintenance got a plumber round the next day and it was a good job we were in when he came as he fixed it within 5 minutes but showed us what to do as the pressure went again 3 days later .Also the wash powder drawer needs a pair of pliers to open it and I still don't know how to open the tumble drier! The new bathroom is superb-new photos should be taken and the views are fantastic-we would definitely stay there again.

    But the best bit is the view from the living room sofa- straight over the water. In fact, it’s far too good to tell you about so will stop there.

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.
