Map & Local Area
Camellia Grove is in the heart of Amble Fishing Town, tucked away behind the town square and historic clock tower.
This family holiday home is a stone’s throw to the Little Shore, White House Sands Beach, Amble pier and the fascinating working harbour. Everything in Amble can be reached easily on foot from Camellia Grove, including some of the best seafood restaurants and cafes in the county.
The coastline and harbour are very interesting in Amble as you can watch the fishing boats come and go. The views of Coquet Island from the pier are beautiful, as they are from the house too! A mile south along the coastal route is Hauxley Nature Reserve which has a whole host of different wildlife to spot all year round.
One mile north you will find the medieval village of Warkworth with its impressive castle towering over the centre of the village. Warkworth is very easy to reach on foot, following the walk along the Coquet estuary from the harbour until you reach the castle. In Warkworth you’ll find a great selection of village pubs (no less than 4 to choose from!) and a five-mile long golden sandy beach accessible from the north end of the village.
Amble is a great place to be based to enjoy the excellent choice of eateries and the beautiful coastal landscape on your doorstep, as well as visiting a host of other popular places in Northumberland such as Rothbury country village and the nearby Simonside Hills and Ingram Valley, the traditional coastal villages of Embleton, Craster and Bamburgh, to the central market town of Alnwick. Everywhere in Northumberland is easy to reach from this gorgeous holiday cottage in Amble.

Tips from a local
Take a walk along the estuary from Amble to Warkworth, and continue on to The Mill Walk around the magnificent castle, along the river and back to Amble. There’s lots of wildlife to look out for along the way – and you’ll likely see the herons perched along the River Coquet. If you’re lucky, you may be able to spot a seal in the river too! Break your walk up with a stop at Bertram’s on Warkworth’s main street for a coffee and cake by the fire.
Tips from a local
Take a Puffin Cruise from Amble dock to Coquet Island, and discover the island’s nesting sea birds! There are over 40,000 birds including Puffins, Kittiwakes, Artic Terns, Eider Ducks and more during the summer months. Plus, you may even spot the grey seal colony who stay at the island all year round, or if you’re lucky, a dolphin!
Tips from a local
Book a table at The Old Boathouse, an award-winning restaurant that is just a four-minute walk from Camellia Grove. They have a fantastic menu offering quality, fresh dishes, and their outside area is the perfect spot to sit and admire the marina views in the summer.
Owner of Camellia Grove
We asked Leanne what she loves about Camellia Grove:
“Although I currently live in London with my husband and two daughters, surrounded by constant hustle and bustle, this hasn’t always been the case. I grew up in Australia, where I spent my evenings walking along the beach, listening to the sea and birds. Over the years, I’ve dreamt of finding a little piece of “home” in the UK. When we escaped lockdown over the summer of 2020 we decided to head to Northumberland, staying for a week in Amble. We immediately fell in love with the village, the coastline, the outdoors, the history, the quaint villages and local shops. Within weeks of that visit, we bought Camellia Grove. The following months were spent renovating and redecorating the house in a modern mid-century style.
The house is ideally placed to explore Amble and Northumberland. My daughters enjoy nothing more than carrying their bodyboards to the Little Shore for a play in the sea, followed by ice cream on the short walk back to the house. In the evenings they unlock the back gate to spot rabbits on the field directly behind the house; sometimes they’re even lucky enough to spot a hedgehog.
We love escaping to Camellia Grove, and hope you enjoy spending time at the house as much as we do.”
