    “The property was clean and very well equipped.”

    In a lovely spot. The property owner had made every effort to make our stay enjoyable. However we came across a severe problem for us older people. We are both well over 80. Consequently the low suit in the lounge created problems for both of us. Don’t let this detract from a normal family enjoying their stay. The problem was ours, not the owners.

About the location

HIGH HAUXLEY

Amble 1.5 miles; Alnwick 11 miles.

The hamlet of High Hauxley is situated half a mile inland from the hamlet of Low Hauxley at the northern end of Druridge Bay, a four-mile stretch of sweeping sand dunes and white sands with rock pools to explore at low tide. Less than two miles away is the small rejuvenated fishing port of Amble, which sits at the mouth of the River Coquet and offers a yachting marina, a harbour and fishing pier, sandy beaches and stunning coastal walks. Just a mile south of Amble is Coquet Island, and you can enjoy a boat trip around the island with its RSPB reserve, home to a large population of terns, puffins, eider ducks and seals. The pretty coastal villages of Alnmouth and Craster are only a short drive away, whilst the castles of picturesque Warkworth and Alnwick, along with its award-winning gardens, and the National Trust’s Wallington Hall and Cragside are all within easy reach.
