“A very satisfying week”
Reviewed June 29, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

The rental is right in the middle of town, on a quiet residential street. Three bedrooms, one full bathroom upstairs, everything else downstairs, a small backyard, the place was very comfortable for the 3 of us.
John and Irene, the owners, met us, and showed us how everything worked. They left us a bottle of wine, some chocolates, and a jar of John's home made jam as a welcoming gift. And, after a 5 hour drive up from London, the wine was very welcome indeed!
There were no maintenance issues of any consequence, we enjoyed the week exploring the northern part of Northumberland, and the town of Amble, and were sorry that the week went by so quickly. I would definitely recommend this place for someone visiting the area.

“Ideal location”
Reviewed June 3, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

John and Irene are very welcoming hosts. Everything you could want to make your stay comfortable is in the well furnished, clean, spacious house, plus some lovely extras to welcome a weary visitor from Australia, like chocolates and homemade jam. The house is well located in a quiet street. Made my visit to family and friends such an enjoyable experience.

A great stay. So much bigger than expected and brilliant facilities. Washing machine / freezer etc. We had two small children so benefited from the large living room and kitchen. Only 2 mins from supermarket and 5 mins from Harbour.

Would definitely stay again.

“A great base for Northumberland”
Reviewed October 30, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

person found this review helpful

We booked very late and found this property. It had good reviews so we were looking forward to it. We weren't disappointed! John and Irene met us at the house and we immediately received a very warm welcome. The house felt very much like a home with three good size bedrooms and a big bathroom. This was important with our three children. It was well decorated, very clean and tidy and good heating as the nights were getting colder! John gave us a good brief on the local amenities and local places of interest. The area gave us a brilliant base to visit the area with trips to Lindisfarne, various castles and a really nice train trip to Edinburgh. We had a great time and our only disappointment was that a week was not long enough!

I would recommend this holiday home to anyone visiting Northumberland.

“Great Comfortable Accommodation”
Reviewed September 25, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The owners were there to greet us and explain what was what, and privided us with tea bags and milk - thank you.
The house is located in Amble in an excellent position - just a short walk from the town and all amenities. We used the bus a couple of times into Alnwick, and the walk through to Warkworth was very enjoyable alongside the river Coquet and spotting the wide variety of birds. I can recommend the Harbour Fish Bar and the delicious meat pies from Amble Butchers. We will definitely go back to Northumberland, and especially to Amble and stay in this house.
