    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. We have checked the microwave and this is secure on the bench top. Our bedroom mat had a not clip mat underneath it. We have checked the front door locks and can confirm that everything is working perfectly now. Property Owner

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.
