Please be Aware
32 Queen Street is on the main street of Amble, which is fantastic for having everything on your doorstep in a charming fishing town, but cannot be deemed in a peaceful and tranquil setting due to it’s central location. You benefit hugely by not having to jump in the car for anything as the lively town has a great selection of restaurants, shops, markets and of course the harbour and coastline just around the corner, which naturally means there will be foot and minor car traffic outside of the property at most times. There are a couple of pubs close by, and whilst we don’t anticipate this will disturb your holiday, we can’t guarantee that you won’t hear people passing by on the weekend evenings. This has already been taken in to consideration when pricing the apartment.
2 bedrooms; 1 king-size room (5ft wide bed) and a second kingsize room that can be separated into two small single beds (2 ft 6″ wide) upon request
Hypo-allergenic duvets, and a mix of feather and synthetic pillows are provided on each bed. One full ‘anti-allergenic’ bed is available by swapping the pillows – please request this when booking if required.
The family bathroom is fully tiled with a large bath with shower attachment, separate shower with rainfall shower head and additional attachment, WC, wash basin, illuminated mirror and heated towel rail. The bathroom also has underfloor heating.
There is a small yard accessed from the ground floor hallway, shared with the hair dressing salon below. There is no outside seating, but the yard can be used for storing bikes or surfboards etc.
32 Queen Street does not have an allocated parking space. There are no parking restrictions between 5pm and 9am (Monday to Saturday, with no restrictions all day Sunday), so guests are able to park on the main street in front of the apartment overnight from 4pm until 10am. Between 9am and 5pm there is a 1 hour maximum parking restriction on Queen Street. Parking is available on the nearby residential streets, or in the public car parks in Amble. Please note the restrictions stated on the blue notices in each carpark/ area.
Care of the Property
Our ‘Coquet’ cottages are much-loved privately-owned holiday homes into which our owners have lavished much care and investment to create beautiful places for their guests to enjoy. We therefore require a cautionary Good Housekeeping Deposit to protect our owners’ property, so that if damage/breakages occur or exceptional cleaning over and above the usual changeover clean is required up to the value of the deposit, the owner can be recompensed.
You have the option of paying either a £200 refundable Good Housekeeping Deposit or a smaller non-refundable £24 Deposit Waiver, which covers you to the value of £200. Please choose which option you prefer when booking. Click HERE for more information.

Tips from a local
Meander down to The Little Shore and see where it takes you…
The Little Shore is at the south end of Amble, and whilst dogs aren’t permitted on the beach between April and September, you can walk along to Whitehouse Sands past the breakwater and further down the coast to Hauxley, Druridge Bay and Cresswell.
It’s a lovely walk down the back of the dunes and along the coastline – get the camera ready!
Tips from a local
For a top notch meal in a warm and welcoming atmosphere, be sure to visit Jasper’s Cafe and Bistro, just 3 minutes’ walk from the apartment down Queen Street and off to your right at the cross roads by Tesco. The food is exquisite (Jasper’s reached number 1 on Trip Advisor out of 778 eateries in Northumberland!) and the staff go out of their way to ensure you enjoy your whole dining experience.
Tips from a local
Feeling adventurous? Try your hand at Surfing!
There is a great little surf community in Amble, and Northside Surf School offer both individual and group lessons for all ages and abilities! Jon has access to the ‘private’ beach over on the Northside of the harbour, and makes the lessons great fun whilst offering one on one instructing and advice.
There is a handy storage yard for surfboards and paddleboards at 32 Queen Street if you have your own equipment, but Jon can provide boards, wetsuits, gloves and boots for you.
