Description

Just a 100 yards away from this semi-detached property and you are on the little beach beside the beach huts (which can be booked for a modest fee) and pier in this very friendly small fishing town. This very comfortable holiday home has plenty of space for up to six guests and has been renovated in 2019 to a very good standard with great attention to detail. For cooler winter evenings there is a cosy wood burner, just perfect for those evenings when you just want to relax in front of the TV planning tomorrow’s adventures. The open-style, rear enclosed area is a great suntrap and perfect for unwinding with a glass of wine after a day’s exploring around the county.
Northumberland was voted the ‘best county to holiday in’ by the British Tourism Awards, and once you are here it is easy to see why. Amble is ideally located to explore this diverse county with Warkworth Castle and village a pleasant 2-mile walk along the estuary. The castle dominates the village and you will find some nice pubs and cafés serving good food and drinks. The working harbour offers boat trips over to Coquet Island to see the bird sanctuary, and is also home to a very popular Sunday market. The little shopping pods are a great way to support the village community, and Amble has a thriving local community spirit. There are two lovely fish and chip shops, a fabulous ice cream parlour and a couple of fish restaurants along the harbour. Amble is reputedly the friendliest port and the cafés and bars are all run by local people.
The Heritage coastline, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, stretches along the beautiful coastline to Berwick-upon-Tweed with miles of golden beaches and castles. Be sure to visit Holy Island, home to the Lindisfarne Gospels, but make sure you check the tide tables to access the causeway. For Harry Potter fans, a visit to Alnwick Castle, 10 miles, is a must. It is home to the Duke of Northumberland and a popular tourist destination in the cobbled historic town of Alnwick. Alnmouth station is only a few miles away, where you can catch the East Coast train up to Edinburgh or down to Newcastle or York for day trips to remember.
Amble is centrally located for exploring in all directions, so a trip over to Hadrian’s Wall, Kielder National Park or up the Heritage coast are all easily accessible from here. Amble has plenty of shops, a bank, cafés, pubs and amenities so you can leave your car behind and have a nice meal and drink out and walk back to Wheelhouse 21. Beach 100 yards. Shop 100 yards, pub 400 yards and restaurant 300 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.
