    Seashell cottage is a lovely, homely, very clean cottage, bigger than the pictures on the website would have you think. Steve and Debbie have thought of everything, fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, washing line and pegs! Ironing board and iron. Tea towels, fluffy towels in bathroom, a comfy bed (sooo comfortable)! Big flat screen telly, dvds, books and information on area. Parking was right outside the front door and there is a Co op a 2 minute walk round the corner. To walk into town is 5 minutes, all on the flat if hills are a problem. The sea is at the end of the road with great views of coquette island. You can walk along the seafront to the harbour, there are 2 friendly pubs/ restaurants there. The 'pods' on the harbour are not to be missed, selling cheese to handbags and everything in between! There is lots to do in the surrounding area, we walked to Warkworth along the Estuary and had a lovely Sunday lunch in the pub opposite the castle. The town itself has some lovely shops too. We also visited the Hauxley Nature Reserve, just outside Amble, a lovely walk, lots of birds to see and a nice coffee shop when you're all walked out! ☺️ So much to see and do we are already planning our next trip in September. Seashell Cottage is the perfect base for your holiday. One final thing to say is the cottage smells lovely. Sometimes holiday cottages can smell a bit fusty but seashell Cottage smelt fresh. I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.

About the location

AMBLE-BY-THE-SEA

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.
