We had a lovely stay in Amble. Great home from home cottage from which to explore the local area. We also loved the home made jam - a welcoming touch.
Stayed at sunflower house for a week wish we could have stayed longer. John and Irene were most welcoming and the extra touches ie wine chocs milk in fridge were a very kind thought. We will most certainly stay here again on our next visit to Northumberland.The house is a few mins walk from shops restaurants pubs and 5 mins to harbour Excellent fish and chips. Also very central to lots of attractions
House was really lovely with EVERYTHING you need. Very modern & spacious, safe & secure location, very friendly owners who welcomed us personally leaving home-made jam & chocolates, parking was no problem, house was very clean, had all modern things you'd need for a week, eg. internet, washer, HUGE TV, wide range of DVD's & books plus Tourist info. A modern & fully equipped kitchen, lovely private courtyard to sit in sunshine with cold beer. Handy for strolling to shops & main street just 1-minute walk & all restaurants & pubs plus for the harbour & pier. We loved Amble & have been to the area a few times, will gladly re-book this property. Thanks guys. PS. Sorry for the late review, life has been Hectic. Cheers & Good Luck, Andy & Lesley
A deceptively spacious and wonderful little home from home in a great location to explore the Northumberland coast.
We did just this on our first visit to the area and would go back. Close to Amble centre and harbour whilst being quietly situated.
The personal touch from the owners in contacting us prior to our visit and also meeting us at the house was great, we were made to feel very welcome.
Would definitely use the house again!
The house is about a 5 minute walk from the harbour close to shops so is ideally situated. There are lots of things to see and do around Amble and the surrounding area. The house was cozy - although it was June we had a cold week so needed the heating on, which warmed the house. The bed was very comfortable with a good mattress. It was very clean and had everything we needed. It's in a quiet neighbourhood and the owners are very welcoming.
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.
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.
