    “Very clean property and loved the welcome pack.”

    Few issues to be aware of. Heating was timed snd unable to change which meant the house got cold. Used the wood burner but upstairs was left cold. Could not use bath downstairs as the bathroom was far to cold. Radiator was not sufficient. Doors to shower very small to get into. Not adequate for a medium to large person. Owner really needs to focus on outside seating area as very unappealing.

    Thank you for your feedback. The heating can be controlled by the thermostat, so can be adjusted as needed. I appreciate the back yard has not been painted yet, it should have been done a few weeks ago, but the weather let us down. It is going to get done next week. Glad you found the property clean and enjoyed the welcome pack. Property Owner

The property

Resting in the charming coastal town of Amble in Northumberland is Myrtle Cottage. Boasting a fantastic location, paces away from local amenities and the beach, this fabulous, dog-friendly holiday home is the perfect choice for families or friends looking to explore the wonders of Northumberland; it also lies close to Northumberland National Park and the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Cross the threshold into your new home-from-home where a welcoming and stylish, open-plan living space greets you; after a day full of exploration unwind on the plush sofa in front of the gentle warmth of the woodburning stove. Later, head through into the spacious, fully-equipped kitchen where you can rustle up tasty meals that the whole family can enjoy around the dining table; be sure to raise a toast to your getaway and reminisce on the cherished memories you have created so far! After dinner, head into the beautifully-appointed ground-floor bathroom to wash away the day’s adventures in the bath or shower before climbing the stairs to slope off to sleep in either the king-size or twin bedroom, both are fitted with handy en-suites. Paces away from Myrtle Cottage you can find local stores where you can stock up on all of your self-catering essentials as well as a variety of pubs and restaurants such as Jasper’s Bistro, ideal spots for when you need a break from the kitchen. Take a short stroll down to the picturesque Amble Marina where you can admire breath-taking views out across the North Sea or head to Warkworth to while away the day with an idyllic stroll along its glorious, golden shores. Warkworth also houses the medieval ruins of Warkworth Castle, ideal for those looking to brush up on local history; continue the historic excursion by visiting Edlingham Castle riverside ruins, the Bailiffgate Museum or venture further afield for a day trip to Holy Island where you can tour the ruins of Lindisfarne Castle and Priory. All this and more awaits at Myrtle Cottage!

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.
