We found the cottage clean and comfortable. It is lacking in some kitchen equipment but guests can manage and there is an ironmongers shop close by. For lovers of real ale there is an excellent Micro pub 20 steps from the back gate! We would hire it again if the dog charge was waived!

As someone else pointed out in the guest book, it is not a cottage, it is a house. But it was lovely and in an ideal location. The lack of a hair dryer was also in the guest book but had not been picked up. Fortunately, my wife had taken hers.

The house is lovely and well equipped. There is a view of the harbour from the kitchen and one bedroom window. There is a Sunday market to visit, a lobster hatchery which was small but worth a visit and very interesting. We left our annual pass in the house for others to use. We also went crabbing off the pier near to where the boats moor up behindRead more the lobster hatchery and along a bit (in front of the Fish Shack restaurant).

This property is not a cottage but a mid terrace house on a town centre street. The back yard was filthy dirty and we had to request it was power washed.

Comfy beds, loads of games, cds, and books, as much equipment as anybody would ever need. Amble is one of the best kept secrets I've ever come across. Only two minor gripes; the memorial clock directly behind the house chimes every quarter hour all day and night.

The harbour is lovely to walk round and the pods are a different way to shop. The seafood centre was impressive to see how lobsters are grown. Also visit the 'mad jam' women some lovely and unique flavours! Sunday there is a market/car boot sale we were impressed with the fruit and veg and seafood stall (very reasonable) During our week we visited Alnwick castle (was very touristy) Alnwick gardens (amazing def recommend take a picnic for the day) Bamburgh castle and beach- the beach was lovely!!

Perfectly appointed. Wonderful location. Spotlessly clean. Sundial Cottage could not have been any more perfect for our stay in Amble. It was the first time my husband had returned to the area in 60 years - after being born there 68 years ago and he says had he know how lovely the town still was he would have returned long ago.

Popular Seahouses, known to many as ‘the village by the sea', is the ideal location for a seaside holiday or short break in Northumberland. This picturesque coastal village is an excellent base from which to explore the whole of the Northumberland Coast and countryside.

Famed for its picturesque harbour and panoramic views of the spectacular Farne Islands, the bustling fishing village of Seahouses features everything you would expect from a seaside holiday and more. All the beaches in the area are dog-friendly, while there is also a huge range of spectacular wildlife and sea life waiting to be sighted. For the adventurous, there are breath-taking coastal paths to trek or scuba diving to enjoy and for those interested in local history, there is a broad spectrum of historical landmarks to discover nearby including the magnificent castles of Bamburgh and Alnwick.

There are boats trips taking visitors to see the spectacular wildlife habitats on the Farne Islands all year round. But if you’d rather stay on land there is Bamburgh Castle Golf Club, one of the most scenic golf courses in Britain, or guided walking tours of the beautiful coast to indulge in. Helping to maintain the character of the village, the variety of independent shops provides a unique shopping experience as well as a great opportunity to get your hands on some delicious local produce.
