Region: Northumberland is a heady combination of fishing villages, market towns, sandy beaches, magnificent castles and historic Hadrian's Wall, tied together by beautiful countryside and abundant wildlife.
Town: Amble-by-the-Sea is a thriving little seaport at the mouth of the River Coquet and was known as a centre for boat building. It has a new marina, coastal walks to the bird sanctuary at Hauxley and miles of sandy beaches, perfect for a beach holiday. The busy harbour lands a large variety of fish and shellfish, all of which can be bought at the harbour fish shop. Terns, puffins and eider ducks can be viewed at the RSPB sanctuary on Coquet Island about a mile south of Amble. Alnmouth and Craster are both delightful coastal villages and are only a short drive away as are the many sandy beaches in the area. The National Trust has the properties of Wallington Hall and Cragside near to hand and Warkworth Castle and Alnwick castle, with its award winning gardens, are well worth a visit.
Additional amenities include: high chair, cooker.Read more

The service was very good and it was nice to be welcomed tere. The property was well appointed and very spacious, there were 5 of us of 3 generations and it was good for all of us. The location was great for going to visit other places of interest and the town we liked very much especially a little cafe we found. We liked the people the house and walking by the marina. The thing we did not like was the concrete yard, we would not have wanted to sit outside as the dustbins were in in the space.

A clean and well furnished holiday let, with a very helpful owner. The house needed some minor improvements, but is more than adequate for a family. You may need to take additional cooking equipment if you plan to eat in.
The picture does not do it justice - a lovely cottage I am delig

This was an immaculate cottage, we were delighted with our stay in Amble, we received an excellent welcome from the owner, the cottage was like a tardis and had a small enclosed back garden. We found the people of Amble very friendly. This cottage is approx 8 miles from Alnwick with its castle (made famous by Harry Potter) and fabulous gardens, also Barter Books - a must to visit, we found the coast had rockpools fabulous for our younger child. Warkworth castle in the next village they had a historical hunt which the children loved - and for us, close to our son and family based with the RAF.
A lovely base for any holiday, we will be going back.
really good holiday
