Map & Local Area
The Beaches is located on the headland at the most southern point of the Amble coastline, quite literally a stone’s throw away from the sea. This stunning, newly built home in Amble is only 10 minutes easy walk to the Amble marina but seconds away from the footpath on the headline. The Beaches is in a perfect spot for enjoying the best of this thriving fishing town without having to get in the car. Everything in Amble can be reached easily on foot from The Beaches, such as the harbour, main street and the great restaurants on the quayside. The Beaches is perfect for a stylish coastal break with breathtaking views.
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, as they are from the house too! A mile south is Hauxley Nature Reserve which has a whole host of different wildlife coming to life all year round which you can easily walk to.
Just over a mile north you will find the medieval village of Warkworth with its impressive castle at the top 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 5-mile golden sandy beach accessible from the north end of the village.
Amble is an excellent 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 coastal retreat in Amble.

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. 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
Dine at The Old Boathouse. One of the best eating places in Amble. Customers drive for miles to visit this rustic fish restaurant to experience their fresh fish and seafood, as well as the other tasty dishes on their menu. With a huge specials board that changes almost daily depending on what the fishing boats bring into the harbour, this bustling restaurant with a stunning harbour frontage is a must to sample the catches of Northumberland. Booking is essential even during the week, at all times of the year.
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 and can be seen on the east side of the island. The waters around the island are really clear and sometimes you can see dolphins. Dave Grey’s boat trips are the best and have been operating for the longest.
