Map & Local Area
Situated in the peaceful village of Red Row, the luxury holiday home of Revilo Lookout is just 1 mile from the stunning woodlands and lakes at Druridge Bay Country Park. The golden sand beach is also just about 1 mile north-east, with parking available on the roadside by the dunes, or in the country park visitors car park.
Another 2 miles further north, you’ll find Amble Fishing Town. The coastline and harbour are very interesting in Amble as you can watch the fishing boats come and go. The little shore is at the southern end of Amble with a little beach before you reach the promenade and the pier. The views of Coquet Island from the pier are beautiful, and a stop-off at The Fish Shack right on the harbour front for a drink or light bite is a must.
1 mile north of Amble, you will find the village of Warkworth with its impressive medieval castle towering above the main street. In Warkworth you’ll find a great selection of village pubs (no less than 4 to choose from!) and a 5-mile golden sandy beach accessible from the north end of the village.
Red Row is an excellent place to be based to enjoy the stunning, peaceful countryside, excellent choice of eateries in the neighbouring towns and villages, 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 retreat.

Tips from a local
Visit The Gingerbread Cafe!
Just a short walk along the road from Revilo Lookout, The Gingerbread Cafe has a reputation for some of the best cakes in the area. Treat yourself to a slice of chocolate fudge cake, lemon and blueberry cake or bounty cheesecake with a hot coffee after a stroll along Druridge Bay beach. There are also a range of sandwiches, scones and tray bakes available, and anything on the menu can be packed as a take away option to enjoy back at the apartment.
Tips from a local
Take a peaceful, evening stroll around Druridge Bay Country Park, and watch the sunset over the lake.
Just a couple of minutes’ drive North from Red Row, the beautiful country park is a hit with holiday makers and tourists alike. The walk around the lake takes about 50 minutes with a few different path options, fun stepping stones and pretty, hidden bridges. You can also cut through to Druridge Bay Beach to extend your walk over the vast sands and grassy dunes.
There is ample parking near the lake, and gates close at dusk so please take note of what time you need to leave as you enter the park, as this varies throughout the year.
Tips from a local
Revilo Lookout is great for wildlife watching, with Kestrels, owls, deer and foxes regularly spotted in the fields from the living area and balcony. Why not add to your sightings list by booking onto the Puffin Cruise boat trip! Departing from Amble Harbour, the tour takes you around Coquet Island where you can see seals sunbathing on the rocks, puffins setting up camp for their nesting season, and if you’re lucky, dolphins playing in the water around the boat.
The boat trips are very popular in the summer season, so booking is recommended to avoid disappointment.
