Description

Kittiwakes is on a quiet street, within a gentle stroll from the high street and harbour in this small, friendly, fishing town. With spacious living accommodation, this lovely terraced house is perfect for relaxing in after a day out exploring the area. Amble is reputedly the friendliest port, with a working harbour, marina and a small beach. Down on the harbour there are some small fish restaurants, as well as two fish and chip shops and an Italian-style, ice cream shop. Boat trips are available from here to Coquet Island to see the RSPB bird sanctuary. The historic village of Warkworth is only 2 miles away. The pubs, bespoke shops and pretty riverside make this a popular little place to visit. The town of Alnwick, with its cobbled streets and famous castle, which featured in ’Harry Potter’ and ’Downton Abbey’, is 15 minutes’ drive away. The Alnwick Garden, with its spectacular Grand Cascade Waterfall and the worlds largest treehouse restaurant, is well worth a visit. Amble is on the edge of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which includes the Heritage coastline and some of the most unspoilt beaches in England, and many footpaths and cycle paths. Beach ½ mile. Shop 400 yards, pub and restaurant 600 yards.

About the local area

Warkworth is undoubtedly one of the most picturesque villages in the whole of Northumberland and not only has an excellent range of pubs, restaurants, cafes, art galleries and quality gift shops, but also a magnificent castle, located right in the middle of the village, to admire and explore.

The magnificent cross-shaped keep of Warkworth, crowning a hilltop rising steeply above the River Coquet, dominates one of the largest, strongest and most impressive fortresses in northern England. The castle's most famous owners were the Percy family, whose lion badge can be seen carved on many parts of their stronghold.

There are wonderful riverside walks alongside the pretty River Coquet which encircles the village, to watch the abundance of wildlife such as herons, foxes, migrating birds, and a vast, sandy beach with dramatic dunes and wonderful, far-reaching views up and down the Heritage Coastline.

Cyclists can enjoy an easy 18 mile day ride. The route has no major climbs and is featured in the recently published 'Sustrans Cycle Northumberland' booklet. Starting in the village, the route heads west inland on quiet lanes, and passes through Guyzance, Acklington and Broomhill. Rejoining the coast at the vast expanse of Druridge Bay and returning north via the fishing port of Amble.
