A stylish and contemporary 4-bedroomed detached property, set over 3 levels, occupying an excellent position on the outskirts of Amble. Part of a quiet, award winning estate. The property is guaranteed to turn heads with it's unusual design.

There is a bustling working harbour which provides fascinating viewing when the boats return with the days catch. A puffin boat cruise operates from Amble harbour, starting in April, around Coquet Island, which is a must for bird lovers.

About the Owner

I live in Durham in the North East Of England, with my husband and two teenage children. We fell in love with the location and the design and feel of the house the moment we walked through the door. We use the house whenever we can, but with two sociable teenagers this time is limited. We are happy to share the house and the experience of staying there with others.

We highly recommend a visit!

  • 5 of 5

This property is fantastic as are it's lovely owners.

It's not often a place is bigger in real life than in the photographs! There were 3 couples and a little baby in our party, plus another couple for a few days, and we had tones of space. The house has so many nooks... the perfect spot upstairs for a sunny morning coffee looking out over the harbour, a lovely garden for lunch, a balcony that gets the evening sun for a pre dinner drink and a beautiful big dinning table for a family meal (The kitchen has everything you might need, we cooked every night)... not to mention the games room/garage.

The owners were so helpful at every stage of the process. When we arrived they had set up a travel cot for my daughter and even put a bedtime story book in there ready for us. They also left us a fantastic hamper of delicious goodies to enjoy during our stay.

The location is great, miles of sandy beaches and interesting historic towns and villages.

We all had a great stay and felt very at home. We highly recommend a visit!

Lovely, luxury holiday house!

  • 5 of 5

We would certainly highly recommend this peaceful, light, comfortable and welcoming house for a holiday in Northumberland. The owners were very helpful before we went in answering queries and the house is well equipped with everything we needed and wanted for a relaxing family break with teenagers. The house is designed with amazing views over Amble marina and Warkworth castle, incredible skies and sunsets. You can easily walk into Amble for yummy fish and chips and local shops. Within a short drive there are beautiful beaches and places to explore.

Location

From the Owner

The main reason for buying the property was it's unique and unusual design and style. We loved the location of the property with it's views looking out towards Amble Marina. We never tire of watching the ever changing skies from the 2nd floor living area. The house has a wonderful feel to it, it is light and spacious with expansive windows. We feel instantly relaxed when we arrive there. We bought the house with the view to exploring Northumberland, but we have found that we rarely go far from the house and Amble, as we love it so much. Northumberland is a place of raw beauty and there is much to explore from the house should you want to. Friends and family who have stayed with us, share our enthusiasm and never want to leave.
