    It has all your cleaning and cooking equipment. Cooker, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge, freezer a proper home from home. The location of the property is very good, it's close to all amenities and to the beach which is at the end of the street. I was a little disappointed to find that that dogs are not allowed

    Seashell cottage was perfect for us, couple of minutes walk from the shops and harbour. The cottage is beautifully decorated and very comfortable, great nights sleep beds are so comfy. We took the bus to a different place everyday buses were about every half hour and on time. We went to alnwick seahouses, ashington, morpeth and we walked along to warkworth took about 20mins. Sunday market is one of the best I've been to in a very long time. We'll definitely be back and would definitely choose seashell cottage again.

    The owners were fantastic, our car we broke down just off the A1 and were transported to the cottage by Green flag recovery. The owners were wonderful allowing us into the cottage earlier. Thank you for all the help and assistance, my dad died the week before our holiday and we were hoping for a relaxing break before returning home for his funeral. Every one really helped to make this possible including the mechanic at the local garage. Thank you again to everyone, we will return to Amble and the lovely cottage at a later date.

  • "This was a lovely, very comfortable cottage in a fantastic position in the very gorgeous Amble."

    It's a stone's throw from the harbour and lovely clifftop walks. The house is well equipped and spacious for what (from the outside) seems a small cottage. The lounge and kitchen diner are spacious, as are the 2 bedrooms and the bathroom. There's only a little courtyard out the back but this was a late winter visit for us and we didn't take our dog, so it was fine. We WOULD consider taking the dog here, however, as the walks from the door are very easy. Amble has surprisingly good amenities, including some excellent fish restaurants (try the Fish Shack, right by the sea or its sister restaurant, the Old Boathouse) as well as a range of cafes, shops, etc. We had a fantastic time here and would return in a heartbeat - we wish it was a bit nearer for us!

    Nice and cosy even without the fireplace being on. Amble is absolutely stunning. A really nice and welcoming community. Lovely walks, you can walk just to the park or to the beach only minutes on the door step. We taken a walk with the dogs to Warkworth and then onto the beach (5 hours walk). We stopped of at the mason arms which is dog friendly and even have dog ice cream (which my dogs loved). I didn’t rate the fish and chips from the local chip shop( up from the Chinese on the corner). Chinese from Golden Harbour was nice.

  • "Seashell cottage was cosy and bright and retained heat well."

    It is in an excellent position a short walk from the harbour, beach and restaurants and there are many good walks in the local area. The bedrooms and living areas are very comfortable. All was as per the listing except for the back yard. This was very disappointing and not up to Sykes’s usual high standard. It was dirty with mouldy walls and dead plants and an elderly dirty back door mat. I have photographic proof if required. The cottage was reasonably stocked for self-catering except there were only 2 normal size saucepans and only one with a lid. It would have been tricky to cook a meal for 4. I would recommend the cottage but the yard needs work or if not the listing and photos need to reflect its condition.

    Thank you for your feedback. The yard has not been able to be decorated this year due to coming out of the pandemic and the property being solidly booked since then. The yard needs three dry, empty days to repaint and so this has simply not been possible due to the volume of bookings. The mat has been replaced. I wouldn't agree there are insufficient pans etc there are more than enough for up to 4 guests. Property Owner

    We had everything we needed and it truly is a home from home. The living room is beautiful, very quirky and fun and the kitchen is very well equipped. The bed is sooo comfortable and the shower is hot and powerful. We didn't use the fire in the living room as the weather was very kind and the house was lovely and warm. Amble is a wonderful small town, lots of places to eat out, very nice pubs and two microbreweries and just about everywhere is dog friendly. It was our first holiday here and we're already planning our return trip.

The owner was very helpful and provided information on where to go in the area. The cottage is in a great location, just a short walk from the harbour in one direction and the local beach in the other. Amble is really lovely place, not too busy, and its only a short drive from some other places on the Northumberland coastline. Really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend.

    What would be good would be to have a sign in the window to say parking for the property only. Numerous times we couldnt park until we placed a note in the window

    The parking may be an issue at times but at the risk of annoying permanent residents, we prefer our guests to have a more respectful and pragmatic approach to parking especially when guests have more than one vehicle. There is always parking just not necessarily on the actual doorstep. The sign is down for that exact reason. Property Owner

    The lighting was very poor when we were washing up after dinner we had to open the blind so that the streetlight shone in. Great having a dishwasher, where were the tablets? Washing machine great, we found the clothesline and pegs but there was nowhere to attach it to. The freezer was very badly iced up and the inside top of the door was damaged. The microwave was not secure I would have been very concerned about this if I had had youngsters with me . The mat in the back bedroom slid across the floor to easily Couldn’t use the key to open front door from outside

    Thank you for your feedback for Seashell Cottage. The kitchen has energy saving lights bulbs which take 30 seconds to come on fully and are working perfectly. Regarding the dishwasher tablets, the property is self catering and you do have to provide your own. Unfortunately the freezer had been turned off causing this to ice up, the freezer door does have a protective cover and this is not damaged. There is a clothes horse in the kitchen cupboard with the pegs. We have checked the microwave and this is secure on the bench top. Our bedroom mat had a non slip mat underneath it. We have checked the front door locks and can confirm that everything is working perfectly Property Owner

    On walking into the twin room a note had been placed in there. It said as we booked as a couple could we not use that bedroom unless absolutely necessary. The assumption was it seems that all couples share not just a bedroom but also a bed. We do not due to medical conditions that each of us have. However to compromise we used the twin room. This led to neither of us sleeping well so we ended up leaving the cottage early to go home. I fully understand about covid restrictions and the need to deep clean and the time this requires. However don't assume couples share sleeping facilities and let them decide which beds they wish to use. After all we pay for the full use of the cottage which includes any bedroom/bedrooms we choose. Had we only needed 1 bedroom then that is all we would have booked and payed for.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are sorry if you felt you were or should not use the 2nd bedroom, of course you are free to use the whole property during your stay, it was just a request that if not needed, that you don't use it. Property Owner

  • "Sea Shell Cottage was a ideal base for easy access to the beach, harbour, cafes and pods hops."

    We were able to park directly outside the property without parking restrictions or charges. The cottage itself was very spacious for a two bedroom property and had everything we needed for our stay. Decor is lovely and the leather sofas add a nice touch. The king size bed was very comfortable with lovely fresh linen. Ample cupboards and drawer space. There is a wood burner in the lounge but we didn't need to use it as the central heating kept the cottage cosy. The small back yard was okay for sitting outside but could do with a little sprucing up. It's likely that Covid restrictions have kept the owners away from spending time sorting out the back yard. It was private with high walls. A nice sun trap. We have a small dog so appreciated the short walk to the end of the road where we had instant access to the beach and sand dunes. There is a very good childrens play area and adult exercise equipment frames at the end of the road too. Ideal if you have children. Sea Shell Cottage is a ideal place to stay and i highly recommend it if you want a quiet beach holiday. It's a great base to travel to SeaHouses, Bamburgh, Warkworth, and other towns with fabulous beaches. We hope to visit again soon. Loved it!

    Steve and Debbie have thought of everything, fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, washing line and pegs! Ironing board and iron.

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.

Amble affords a colourful harbour, home to a wide variety of pubs, cafés and restaurants, whilst the marina flourishes with an array of vibrant naval activity.

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.
