One mile north you will find the medieval village of Warkworth with its impressive castle at the top of the village.

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.

Tips from a local
Make sure you pay a visit to Druridge Bay Country Park which you can easily reach by car in 5 minutes or on foot which will take a bit longer.
Not only is it a pretty country park with a 100 acre lake fringed with woodland and meadows, it also has a huge 7 mile stretch of golden sandy beach and has several nature reserves tucked behind it’s dunes.
Druridge Bay is a hub of activity, hosting the national Park Run every Saturday, the annual VW Campervan Festival and the lake is home to many watersports activities all year round. If watersports is your thing, visit Northside Surf School, based in Amble.
Tips from a local
Pick up some fresh bread and other deli goodies from either La Famiglia or The Amble Butcher on the high street, pack a picnic and head down towards the Braid, just a few minutes from Ambler’s Retreat. They have picnic benches there you’re on the coast, so you can see the boats going in and out of the marina.
You’re so close to the cottage and the main street that if you forget something or want more scrumptious treats, you’re almost just around the corner!
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 across the town square. 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. Remember to take your Coquet Cottages key fob with you to claim a free bottle of Prosecco for the table during the evening, and a free round from selected non-alcoholic drinks through lunch time!
Tips from a local
Go on a Puffin Cruise to Coquet Island, sailing from Amble dock. The island is home to over 40,000 nesting sea birds such as Puffins, Roseate Terns, Sandwich Terns, Arctic Terns, Kittiwakes and Eider Ducks which all nest in the summer months. A grey seal colony also stays at the island all year round can be seen on the east side of the island. Dave Gray’s boat trips are the best and have been operating for the longest.
Owner of Sea Gem
A Word from the Owner…
I was born and bred in Northumberland, currently living in Seahouses. I can’t imagine not living by the sea and love the sound of waves crashing on the beach. I love the beach in all weather and never gets bored as there are plenty of beaches in the area to walk on. I purchased Sea Gem as an investment but also as a weekend bolthole for myself and my partner Mark. It’s not too far away but just enough to be able to relax away from Mark’s business. The yellow settees are the most comfy sofas and enjoy relaxing on them watching a movie or two!
