  • "Have used Sykes Cottage many times and this stay was as expected."

    The cottage was meticulously clean and comfortable and was a treat away for my wife's 50th. Only a very short walk to the sea and a couple of great seafood restaurants (as seen on TV Hairy Bikers) Arriving late evening on a cold day a lovely touch was that on arrival the heating was on and a few lights that made a great start to our stay. Enjoyed day trips out visiting nearby places of interest such as Holy Island. Will very probably be staying here again. Highly recommended.

    Dear Charles, thank you so much for taking the time to post your review. We are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay to celebrate your wife’s birthday & thank you also for your recommendation. We are pleased that you liked the Cottage, its location to the sea, the nearby restaurants & the ability to visit local places of interest. We do hope that we can welcome you back to Seaview Cottage on another occasion. Kind Regards Peter & Patricia. Property Owner

  • "Seaview house was ideal for us."

    It's spacious, clean, comfortable and cosy. It is situated near the Amble sea front and pier so you have a beautiful walk right from your front door step. We loved it and hopefully will be back.

    Dear Elaine, we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Seaview Cottage and found it ideal for your holiday. We think it is located in a nice position as you don't have to get into a car to have a nice walk. The walks from the house to the sea front and pier are really nice in all seasons and the views are also delightful. Thank you for posting your positive review and we do hope that we can welcome you back to our cottage on another occasion. Kind Regards Peter & Patricia. Property Owner

    The house is well placed for all amenities and I loved hearing the sound of the waves as I opened the front door on a morning. We hope to return again in the future!

    Dear Sarah, we are really pleased to read that you loved Seaview Cottage and found it very spacious for your friends/family.

  • "We have had a lovely week at Seaview Cottage."

    The location is very handy for exploring both the town and the wider area. We were lucky with the weather and particularly enjoyed the local nature reserves along Druridge Bay and the beautiful beaches nearby. The house is lovely and spacious and we found the kitchen to be very well equipped with everything we needed during our stay. Would definitely stay here again if visiting the area.

    Dear Claire, we are really pleased you enjoyed your stay at Seaview Cottage & thank you for posting your complimentary review. We are also pleased to hear that the weather was “kind” to you & you were able to explore the local area. We would love to welcome you back to our cottage if you are visiting the area again.

    Dear Mia We are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Seaview Cottage & thank you for posting your review & for awarding us the maximum review score. The size of the property is quite deceiving when looking from the outside or from the online photos, but finding it is much bigger inside, hopefully is a nice surprise for our guests.

  • "Behind the chest of draws in the front largest bedroom hadn’t been cleaned, it was full of dust and looked like hadn’t been moved for months (I know this is nothing to do with the owners)."

    To hoover behind despite there being a large gap. The hoover wasn’t the best at hoovering. Other then this it is lovely accommodation and I will be booking again excellent lay out for a disabled person with the downstairs bathroom. Very spacious accommodation no problem with parking. It was wonderful to have the facilities to play music around the home. Instead of having the tv on the all the time, the firestick was a bonus for the days it wet and windy. Ideal location and all amenities close by.

    Dear Danielle, thank you for posting your review. We are obviously disappointed hearing about the dust you found behind the chest of drawers in the main bedroom, we will get in touch with Northumbria Coast & County Cottages about this as they do the cleaning on our behalf. The “Henry” hoover shouldn’t have any difficulty in hoovering around the property, unless the dust bag is full. We will also mention this to NC&CC. Other than these issues, it appears you enjoyed your stay at Seaview Cottage & found everything to your satisfaction. We look forward to welcoming you back on another occasion. Kind Regards Peter & Patricia Property Owner

  • "Spacious house for 4 adults in a fantastic location, just a stroll to the harbour side."

    We had no issues parking on the road with 2 cars. The living room and bedrooms are comfy and the kitchen is well equipped. Plenty space to spread out so we weren't in each others' pockets. The photos are accurate, which says more than my typing! The yard is small but sheltered. It feels homey rather than a bespoke holiday rental flip and we would happily stay again. Amble is a great location to relax. Plenty places to eat and drink, with a small high street with some independent shops. It's right on the coast path for walkers, has beaches and also a nearby nature reserve in walking distance (2 miles, also driveable). Alnwick, Alnmouth and Warkworth are easy to get to by car or bus. I would have scored 5 for facilities, but I can see from previous reviews that the pulsing light in the bedroom has been reported and not addressed. This could be a real issue for an epileptic or someone else triggered by strobe-like lights. There are also only 2 outdoor chairs (noted by several people in the paper guestbook). I'd guessed this from the pictures, so took extra with us. The upstairs shower could do with a deep clean as the showerhead is black. Cleaning supplies are given in a wee box and only really cover washing up. Some surface cleaner would help keep the kitchen as clean as when we arrived, as the sink stains easily with tea. None of this spoiled our holiday, but they're very easy fixes.

    Dear Kate, thank you for posting your review and the nice comments you made about your stay. We note your comments about the flickering lights in the back bedroom and would like to inform you that we have contacted an electrician to change the light switch, but he hasn't be able to get into the house and it has had guests in the house since we first informed him. I will ask NC&CC to look at the problem with the shower head in the bathroom as they take care of the house cleaning for us. Apart from the points you raised in your review it would appear that you enjoyed staying at Seaview Cottage and you also enjoyed your visits to the surrounding areas. Kind Regards Peter & Patricia.

  • "The cottage was lovely and comfortable, clean and tidy with all the pots pans cutlery etc that you could ever need."

    The Wi-Fi worked well as did all the other electrical items. Amble was a good place from which to explore the area. One small thing, I think the light bulbs in the back bed room are the wrong ones for the dimmer switch as they flickered all the time, it wasn't a problem as we used the bedside light instead. Would definitely recommend the property.

    Dear Norman, we are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Seaview Cottage and found everything to your liking. Amble is a great place to base yourself to tour the area and it also has some lovely walks itself in the immediate vicinity. Sorry to hear about the flickering lights in the back bedroom when using the dimmer switch, this is the first time we have heard about this issue and we will get our electrician to look at the problem.

The property

Enjoying a superb coastal setting near to the bustling harbour of Amble in Northumberland, Seaview Cottage is a delight all year round and is the perfect family holiday destination.

The accommodation is well-presented and offers guests a warm and welcoming ambience with an inviting sitting room housing ample seating and tasteful décor and soft furnishings, creating a space which is ideal for curling up together and relaxing.

The good-sized kitchen/diner is fully fitted and has everything that’s needed to be able to rustle up creative cuisine for the whole family and the extensive dining area has a rustic dining table and large windows letting in loads of light, which both add up to make for a really sociable space.

This is somewhere you can imagine tucking into long and relaxing meals together.

The small but perfectly formed courtyard gives guests the opportunity to take a seat outside and soak up any sunshine.

When it’s time for bed, choose from three bedrooms; two king-sizes and a single.

All are charming and offer a calming place to lay your weary heads after a hard day of getting out and about exploring.

Seaview Cottage is a short walk from the bustling harbour of Amble which also boasts a marina, sandy beaches and a number of coastal walks to the bird sanctuary at Hauxley and country park at Druridge Bay.

Just 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.

Seaview Cottage does what it says on the tin: offers guests beautifully presented rustic accommodation with captivating views of the sea.

About the location

AMBLE

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.
