Area The bustling seaport of Amble is situated at the mouth of the River Coquet and is an ideal place for exploring Northumberland. Historically a centre for boatbuilding, Amble offers a marina, a harbour, sandy beaches and coastal walks to the bird sanctuary at Hauxley and Country Park at Druridge Bay. Large fishing boats moor along the harbour wall and land a variety of fish, prawns, crabs and lobsters - the daily catch can be bought at a fish shop in the harbour. A mile south of Amble is Coquet Island, an RSPB reserve with a large population of terns, puffins and eider ducks and boat trips around the island can be arranged. The pretty coastal villages of Alnmouth and Craster and numerous superb beaches are only a short drive away, whilst picturesque Warkworth with its castle, charming Alnwick with its castle and award winning gardens, and the National Trust's Wallington Hall and Cragside are all within easy reach.
Region Northumberland is a heady combination of fishing villages, market towns, sandy beaches, magnificent castles and historic Hadrian's Wall, tied together by beautiful countryside and abundant wildlife.

Mrs Willis, September 2020
Amble was a great base to explore so many things in Northumberland.. Lovely town with amenities. Flat was very comfortable with everything we needed. Nicely decorated with a homely feel. Thanik you so much. Would highly recommend using Sykes.
Rev Ryan, September 2020
Lovely apartment in a great location for exploring the local area and the local shops and restaurants.. The apartment would benefit from having a welcome booklet explaining how the heating etc worked.
Mrs Rab, February 2020
A very pleasant, light
and comfortable flat two minutes walk away from the High Street and five minutes from the harbour.. A good base for our holiday, and easy to revisit favourite places like Cragside.
We will certainly try to rebook next time we visit Amble.
Mrs Williamson, October 2019
Good location friendly town people made you welcome.. The apartment was just as it said it would be.
Mrs Higgins, September 2019
Driftwood Apartment was very clean, comfortable and well equipped, a lovely home from home.. It was in a great location for visiting the beautiful Northumberland Coast.
Mrs Frame, July 2019
Easy communication with the owner who was very pleasant on the phone.. Parking was available, if a little tight on space for the two apartments.
The location of the apartment was great, easy walk to the harbour area and the Main Street of amble. The apartment itself was comfortable and well presented. Plates and cutlery were all there but a bit of a mixed lot. Nice towels provided. The apartment was clean and nice and quiet.
My only complaint was that the double bed was very uncomfortable and would benefit from a decent mattress. I had to sleep in one of the twin beds which were better. A welcome pack would have been useful too, explaining things.
Overall a good apartment.
Mrs Heydon, July 2019
A great place to use as a base for exploring the beautiful Northumbiian Coast.. The apartment is simple, warm and welcoming and equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay.
Mrs Pepper, July 2019
Good location,near to shops and harbour.. Outlook a bit lacking.
Although it says it has parking spaces for two cars - it was extremely tight.. We had an Astra and the couple in the flat below a smaller car - if two larger cars turned up - think it might be practically impossible without agreement to constantly be moving them for access and egress
Location, amenities and overall comfort very good
The flat was beautifully set out, clean and had everything we needed.. The owners were really helpful and accommodating. The flat is in the centre of Amble near to shops and restaurant's less then 5 min walk. The harbour area is lovely with a small beach and shops less then 10 min walk. We would definitely stay here again.
Good location for amenities in Amble.. Out look not very pleasing on the eye. But we were hardly in to look at it.
Lovely flat, easy to find in a friendly village..
Really comfortable and stylish apartment, perfectly situated to enjoy Amble.. High standard of cleanliness and facilities with a real homely feel.
A cosy, warm and comfortable apartment, with the unusual advantages of two toilets and being so close to town, off road parking.. We enjoyed our week exploring Northumberland despite the weather, the majority of the UK has not had rain for weeks, but we had heavy rain on the Monday and drizzle on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday! Amble had a good selection of local shops,eateries and takeaways and an excellent Sunday market.
The situation of the apartment was an excellent base to explore the beautiful Northumberland coastline.. Amble itself is a very attractive harbour town. Weather was good which always helps! A very enjoyable holiday and would recommend to anyone.
Driftwood Apartment is a very comfortable and well situated apartment in the centre of Amble with it's own offroad parking.. Handily located near to the harbour, it is a great base from which to explore the beautiful Northumbrian countryside and the local wildlife; a puffin cruise to Coquet Island is a must and don't forget your camera or binoculars. We can highly recommend this hidden gem.
Clean, well equipped flat.. Helpful owner.
Accurate description and excellent value for money.. We had a lovely time and will book through Sykes again.
It's just a clean tidy warm comfortable apartment in a great location next to shops and great restaurant's.. And close to the harbour
I stayed here with my kids for a week in August. Really lovely apartment, everything we needed for a central base to explore Northumberland. Amble is a lovely wee town, nice places to eat, good shops and small beach and fab playpark for the kids. Great to have parking off the street & lovely quiet area, but really only minutes from the main streets of Amble. Have loved loved our time here - we'll be back!
Excellent, enjoyed immensely

Lovely apartment, well situated and I would highly recommend this property to anyone.. It has everything you need like home from home.
Fantastic hideaway from the busy High Street. There is off road parking which is a great bonus around there.
The apartment is spacious, equipped with everything you need on your holiday and also tastefully decorated.
Rates are reasonable too.
The location is ideal to see Holy Island, Farne Island, Hadrian's Wall and the lovely sandy seaside.
Also, not too far even from Edinburgh and the Scottish border.
Shops are within minutes and the seaside is close.
Would highly recommend it.
