The Penthouse is perfectly positioned to view and enjoy the stunning Amble coastline, marina, North Sea and the Coquet Estuary from all of the huge windows in the apartment as well as wall-to-wall glazed doors.
From the door of the apartment main entrance, you can take a stroll along the promenade to the harbour front, where you will find an interesting local market on a Sunday and also The Fish Shack, a daytime bistro serving fresh fish, pizzas, etc. Further on you can find Spurelli’s ice cream parlour, The Old Boathouse award-winning fish restaurant and the Harbour Village; a cluster of small independent gift shops. Radcliffe’s bar and restaurant is just around the corner from The Penthouse and serves breakfast and evening meals. Their gin selection is very popular!
The rock pools are great to explore which are next to the beach along from the harbour, as is the little bay and the pier stretching right out to the lighthouse, where you have beautiful views of Coquet Island. The whole of the Northumberland heritage coastline is easy to discover from Amble, with its necklace of pretty coastal villages threaded up the coastline to Holy Island and Budle Bay.

Our family stayed at the Penthouse for a week to celebrate my 60th birthday. The owners very kindly gave me a birthday card and cake which was very thoughtful. The accommodation was fabulous and I could not find fault with anything. It was spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated with top notch furniture and fittings. The kitchen had everything we could ever have needed for in-house catering and the views from the apartment were breathtaking. Fantastic apartment that I hope to visit again if I am luckyEscape the ordinary read our guest book
Tips from a local
Right on your doorstep, begin your day with a Radcliffe’s breakfast!
The avocado smash flatbread, with bacon and poached egg is to die for. If you have a sweet tooth, the pancakes are also highly recommended!
Radcliffe’s is just next door to the Coble Quay Apartments, and offers delicious, freshly made food with top quality ingredients. They have an excellent range of beers, ales and gins, and there’s a great evening atmosphere too.
Tips from a local
Visit the Amble Pods!
These pretty little huts are ran by small local independent businesses. From arts and crafts, to delicious gins and cheeses, you’ll find some real hidden gems along here.
Leading along to the harbour front, be sure not to bypass them along the way.
Tips from a local
Book an evening meal at Jasper’s Bistro!
This pretty little restaurant is very small and offers a relaxed, intimate dining experience. The food is absolutely exquisite. The chef specialises in seafood and steak dishes, and the care and attention to detail is apparent on every plate.
Booking is definitely advised to avoid disappointment, especially for larger parties.
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 there in the summer months. A grey seal colony also lives on 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.
Tips from a local
Go surfing! There is a great, little surf community in Amble, with Northside Surf School offering private and group lessons all year round. Jon is a qualified surf instructor and lifeguard, it’s great fun for a family day out. Whether you’re looking for a bit of fun with a group session, or to improve your skills in a one-to-one lesson, Jon is highly recommended, and can even take you to the private beach on the other side of the harbour! All equipment and wet suits are provided – so what are you waiting for?!
Owner of The Penthouse
A Word from the Owner…
What a place to have worked over the years, developing what was boatyard storage land into Coble Quay, a stunning Waterfront Estate. We really are blessed to spend our working days here.
Every day we get to watch the tide roll in and out, while boats come and go, and birds fly free over the waters. It is forever changing and still to this day we’re mesmerised by its captivating beauty, it is a wonder we’ve managed to get any work done! We’re lucky to call this paradise home, our second home. On days off we enjoy dog walks along the beach as well as hiking and mountain biking in the national parks. We love nothing more than sharing this wonderful place with our guests and hearing all about their adventures.
Not sure where to start?
We know Northumberland and all of our cottages inside out, so if you have any particular queries, please don’t hesitate to call or email us. We’re more than happy to help!
