    “Great location, terrific views, wonderful living accommodation.”

    Bedrooms sparsely furnished, Two were small for two adults for a week. Ok for families with younger children. Web site stated 2 ground floor shower rooms and one ground floor family bathroom. In fact one of the shower rooms was up stairs, big issue for three adult parties. Only one chair between 4 bedrooms, limited surfaces and no mirror visible for anyone under 5ft 6in. If these issues could be resolved the place would be unbeatable.

If you can tear yourself away from this stunning base, head to Amble Harbour, where you can explore the picturesque harbour and watch as the fishing boats come and go. Alternatively, head to Coquet Island via boat, a lovely nature reserve and prime spot for viewing seabirds, including puffins and terns. Visit the nearby village of Warkworth and explore the impressive ruins of Warkworth Castle before enjoying fantastic food at the Harbour Inn, Jaspers, the Boat House, or the Fish Shack.

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.
