Comfy beds, loads of games, cds, and books, as much equipment as anybody would ever need. Amble is one of the best kept secrets I've ever come across. Only two minor gripes; the memorial clock directly behind the house chimes every quarter hour all day and night.

This is a nice cottage that is well designed and maintained for 2 couples or family with good room to prep, cook and eat and separate area for TV and visiting.

Sundial Cottage was in a great location in Amble, 1 minute off the high street and harbour which had a number of pubs and lovely restaurants.

Also we had a drink at the old boat house at the harbour which was lovely (the food looked lovely too) we had a meal at the wellwood which was also nice. The harbour is lovely to walk round and the pods are a different way to shop. The seafood centre was impressive to see how lobsters are grown. Also visit the 'mad jam' women some lovely and unique flavours! Sunday there is a market/car boot sale we were impressed with the fruit and veg and seafood stall (very reasonable) During our week we visited Alnwick castle (was very touristy) Alnwick gardens (amazing def recommend take a picnic for the day) Bamburgh castle and beach- the beach was lovely!! Alnmouth beach- another gem! We walked to Warkworth and visited a number of the pubs Whitehorse farm (Morpeth) was a great day out with young children and for a whole day out not that expensive. So much to visit and so easy to access from the house. Hide

Lovely place warm and cosy and a relaxing place to flop when not exploring Amble and the glorious surrounding areas. Little yard for dogs. Park at the back for late night wee walk. Sunny outlook in quiet residential area. On street parking. The area is utterly amazing. Do some research and enjoy every moment.

Perfectly appointed. Wonderful location. Spotlessly clean. Sundial Cottage could not have been any more perfect for our stay in Amble. It was the first time my husband had returned to the area in 60 years - after being born there 68 years ago and he says had he know how lovely the town still was he would have returned long ago.

If you’re looking for a seaside holiday with a difference, visit Northumberland – a region brimming with beautiful golden, sandy beaches, rolling hills, craggy moorland, bustling market towns and fishing villages, and more castles than in any other county in England.

Situated in the North East of England, this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty boasts no less than 39 miles of unspoilt coastline to explore and a calendar packed with exhilarating water sports options. To indulge in a spot of surfing, kayaking or powerboating, take a trip to one of the many breath-taking Northumberland beaches - where dogs love a good walk and fresh local seafood is never far away.

Home to the awe-inspiring Cheviot Hills and the historical Hadrian’s Wall, the Northumberland National Park is renowned for its open spaces, award-winning Dark Skies and stunning rural backdrops - and is the least populated national park in Britain. Offering access to challenging hikes, horse-riding, rock-climbing and a multitude of other action-packed activities, the park is one of the region’s greatest draws.

There is a huge range of spectacular wildlife and sea life waiting to be sighted, whether you take a boat ride to the Farne Islands to admire the colony of Atlantic grey seals and puffins, or explore the Kielder Water and Forest Park, home to magnificent ospreys. If it’s history you’re looking for, the imposing Bamburgh Castle and the world-famous Alnwick Castle are undoubtedly worth a visit.

Alternatively, if you’re seeking the bright lights of a city adventure, Newcastle upon Tyne is the place to go. Here, you can experience world-class culture, outstanding attractions, superb shopping, impressive live shows, top entertainers and delicious cuisine in abundance.
