Sundial Cottage is an excellent example of a true ‘home from home’ in self-catering accommodation. This mid terrace property is located just behind the attractive town square in what is known as "the friendliest port" of Amble, on the beautiful Northumberland coast and only a few meters from the working harbour, marina, Little Shore beach, the pier and the brand new, quirky retail pods which have a range of lovely products for you to browse and buy. Not to mention you are in easy walking distance of a range of excellent restaurants, a fish and chip shop which people come from miles around to queue for and a locally renowned Ice Cream parlour that is too good to miss!

Amble is a great base from which to explore the whole region and see all the famous Northumberland, local attractions. The neighbouring village of Warkworth, with its medieval castle, attractive shops and restaurants lies on the beautiful River Coquet and is a lovely walk from Amble.

With an open plan lounge and dining area, a good size kitchen, Wi-Fi, Sky TV with basic package and outdoor seating on the rear patio overlooking the square and Sundial sculpture, this cottage is tastefully furnished throughout and sleeps up to 4 guests in 2 double bedrooms.

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.

Well presented, thoughtfully furnished and well equipped, spotless throughout. Everything we needed was to hand, although there were only the two of us. Excellent selection of CDs, DVDs, books and games if the weather had turned really foul, which it didn't. A huge amount of information available on things to do. Moreover, the town visitor centre is not much more than ten paces from the back gate. Sundial Cottage: a well-equipped, comfortable terrace cottage, close to the marina and the centre of town. The Coquet estuary and Warkworth castle are both visible from the back of the cottage. Amble: a quiet but far from sleepy small coastal town about halfway between Newcastle and Berwick. Both Amble and Warkworth have a good selection of pubs and restaurants. Amble is a good base from where to go anywhere on the Northumberland coast either by driving or by the coastal bus route. It's close to Warkworth, Alnmouth and Alnwick. From Alnwick, it's a relatively short drive into the heart of the Cheviot hills and the Scottish border country.

Super location, homely feel, every need catered for. Sundial Cottage looks out on the harbour square, marina and over to Warkworth Castle. It is within two minutes walk of a supermarket, a superb fish restaurant, a memorable ice-cream parlour, a 'chippy', a good Chinese takeaway, and a new shopping experience - 'craft and accessories' retail pods. We found the Sunday Market a good introduction to Amble, and a leaflet at the cottage, which shows two local walks, led to the harbour walk being a daily constitutional. Outside Amble we visited Alnwick Castle and Gardens and Barter Books in Alnwick, a place of pilgrimage for any reader. Bamburgh Castle, Warkworth Castle and Lindisfarne Castle are all different and worth a visit. The Grace Darling Museum and the Copper Kettle in Bamburgh, the Old Smokehouse restaurant in Craster and Lindisfarne Abbey are also on our "to-do-again" list. We are looking forward to staying in Sundial Cottage again soon.
