Holiday home
2 Bay View is a well-maintained detached cottage situated in the harbour town of Amble in North East England. Benefiting from beautiful views that stretch across the estuary and out towards sea, this cottage can sleep four people in two bedrooms, one double and one twin.

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.

The position of the cottage in Amble was excellent and the fact that dogs were allowed was much appreciated.
Mrs Bolton
December 2015
The cottage is very cosy, close to the beach and has some really lovely views. We found some great dog walks close by and the garden is fully enclosed. The wood burner adds a really nice touch. We would visit again.

The location of this property was perfect; overlooking the harbour and close to all the amenities. The cottage had been carefully planned and had everything you needed. A home from home in every way.

A charming and comfortable cottage. It was extremely well situated for the town and its amenities, with a lovely view over the harbour entrance and adjacent beach. Lovely sunsets and a view towards Warkworth Castle. This was a perfect place in which to relax and an ideal base from which to explore the area. My family and I loved the place and would love to return.

Great cottage - lovely presentation in a fantastic location. A great way to pass a peaceful Christmas with my family.
Mr Doyle
December 2014
What a fabulous little cottage, as with all the other comments, it was a real home from home. It was very well equipped, the location is amazing and what a lovely town Amble is. The people are very friendly as well. We made very good use of the log burner and spent ages watching the world go by looking out of the window straight on to the bay. An excellent location for amazing restaurants, pubs and local shops. The main town is about ten minutes walk away. This was our first visit to Northumberland and definitely will not be our last.
Mr Storey
March 2015
This is a lovely warm, comfortable cottage with fantastic views over the bay and pier, and the little beach just over the road. We enjoyed sitting at the breakfast bar watching the boats go past. The cottage has a great log burner and lovely comfortable beds. The enclosed patio was ideal for our dog and the whole area is very dog friendly. Shops and pubs were all within walking distance. We would stay in this cottage again.

An excellent location overlooking the bay, an ideal house for the three of us with a private garden beside other holiday lets. It was well equipped, it was nice to get welcome pack with coffee/tea, laundry and washing up liquid. It was an ideal location for exploring Northumberland. There was great information provided in the house of things to do in the area.

We liked where it was situated , we have a dog and it was great to take our dog for lovely walks. To wake up just across a small beach .
Mrs Randles
June 2014
The position of the cottage was excellent with lovely views. The welcome pack was exceptional, this was our third visit to Amble and our best accommodation by far. We were in a central position for Newcastle and places to the North like Holy island. We would be happy to use the cottage again.
Mr Denness
March 2014
Amble is a great location for coastal walking, geology and bird watching, the local coastline is stunningly beautiful. The owners gave us good information in advance of local areas to visit, so as to get the most from our holiday. On arrival there was a superb and thoughtfully prepared welcome pack.

Mr Ryan

There was nothing to dislike, the cottage was beautiful and spotless with more than everything you could need. The location was superb and so were the views. I would and will recommend the cottage to all of my friends - we had a lovely holiday.
Mr Chapman

A beautiful situation overlooking the beach and harbour with views of Warkworth Castle. Well equipped with comfortable beds. Just walk out the door and you are on the beach.
Ms Walker-cotton
August 2014
The view from the window was superb and we sat at the breakfast bar watching the boats go by. The safe beach was a stone's throw from the house, as was a big grassy area - both ideal for the kids and dog to play. The enclosed patio was perfect - a sun trap, safe for the dog, and a little haven for tiny birds who came to the bird table to feed. The welcome pack was much appreciated, as was the helpfulness of the owners with any questions we had in advance. Locally, Amble Links Beach was superb as was seeing seals, puffins and terns on the Puffin Cruise from the harbour. A great holiday.
Mrs Brazier
January 2014
Beautiful cottage with an amazing view. Every need catered for; there were so many little finishing touches that made our stay perfect, couldn't fault any part of the cottage, it was spotless, warm and cosy. Would definitely be staying again. Lovely area and perfect place to stay for all our family.

Mr Rose

The geographic position of Amble, and the cottage, was ideal for our requirements. The area is clean and very beautiful, with lovely beaches, and plenty to do if you want to get out and about. The cottage was clean, tidy and comfortable, with the view out of the window, at breakfast, a bonus.
Mrs Catterall

Cottage very good with great views across the estuary. Lots of places within easy drive along the coastal route. Beautiful beaches nearby.
Mrs Hodgins

Location of the property was superb and enabled an easy week of beach walking. Really friendly locals and everyone seemed so dog happy. Had some lovely food out.
Mr Mullett
September 2013
A lovely property in a welcoming community. A good base for exploring Northumbria and all its coastal walks, beaches and historical towns and buildings. The view from the breakfast bar across the estuary and village green allowed us to relax and watch a busy port and its people go about their daily life. A great way to start any holiday to make you feel at home.

The owners were very helpful and friendly and the welcome hamper was much appreciated. Amble is a very warm and friendly place and the harbour area is the view from the kitchen window. The cottage was clean, tidy and full of character.

The location was ideal. Great base, and good to be able to walk to shops, the pub, harbour, cafes etc. The view from the cottage was amazing. The cottage was very comfortable, loved the wood burning stove. Would definitely visit again!

We could see the sea from the kitchen window during the day and hear it at night. Welcome pack from owner's was lovely - it included 1/2 dozen eggs from their own chickens. Cottage had everything we needed. Good shops, pubs and cafes in Amble and fabulous fish and chips! The people were lovely and friendly too

After a four hour drive in the rain we arrived to a lovely cottage overlooking the estuary , pier and sea . Inside the cottage was a welcome pack of bread, wine , tea,coffee biscuits and milk also a bag of logs and lighters to get you started. Such a cosy house well equipped in the kitchen and towels alike. Very squeaky floor boards and stairs but no doubt the age of the house it's to be expected. Visited the boat house for lunch - amazing food . Also Sunday Amble always has a market great for fruit veg seafood meat etc. Spurellis cafe/icecream is highly recommended. All the shops etc you can easily walk to if you don't fancy driving. Saw some amazing tide changes over the week with wonderful weather for the time of year. Plenty sand on the beach at low tide , a dog lovers paradise as it seems the area to walk the dogs. Locals all seem very friendly and we were given all the help and advice from the owners prior to our arrival. Would love to return sometime in the future.

I don't usually write reviews but this house deserved one. What a fabulous place to stay. The house had everything we needed. The location was perfect for exploring the area. The kids loved sitting at the breakfast bar watching the world go by outside. The view across the harbour to Warkworth Castle was amazing. Will definitely book again. The owner was very helpful when getting the key code. She gave us useful tips and places to visit.

We stayed over Christmas 2015. The cottage is warm, mid December and we never got around to lighting the fire, it has its own wifi, and a great view onto the bay area, and you can just sit at the breakfast bar and watch the world go by. There is an enclosed garden, so if you have a dog, they won't be able to get out, the beds were comfortable and clean, there was plenty of hot water, and it does look just like it does in the pictures! The upstairs floors do creak, but soundproofing with the adjoining cottages is very good - so if you walk around in the night you might wake up other people in your house but not in anybody else's. A family of about 10 stayed next door when we were there and we didn't hear a peep from them and the street was really quiet. The owners were very helpful, and left a welcome basket which included a bottle of red and a little selection of Stollen, which lasted a good 5 minutes. The cottage has lots of model ships as part of the decor - and it looks like they've taken care to make it feel like a home. There are also loads of DVDs and books to read, and there were also children's games in one of the bedrooms. There are all sorts of places to walk dogs in the area, virtually all of them well away from roads, and there's a marina and the main street, Queen Street, which has lots of small retailers. Amble is not the most picturesque seaside town I've been to, but it has a lot to recommend it in terms of places to eat, and things to do, there are at least two fish and chip shops, and a co-op just down the road from the cottage which seems to open exceptionally long hours, and a boutique icecream parlour called Spurreli's which is worth a visit. It really is a dog friendly place - our two are quite hyper and yet they were greeted with smiles by virtually everybody we met, people were extremely friendly generally, only one person didn't say 'hello' back the whole time we were there, and the Old Boat House serves the most amazing sea food. The kitchen has everything you would need, the oven is fairly simple but it works fine, good selection of pans and it's quite well stocked with the basics. There are no horror stories with this place - it is exactly as described. We had a lovely time there. Also - the booking service, Sykes Cottages - their opening hours were until 9.30pm, we rang them at 9.25pm, very apologetic at being so late, they were very friendly, took the trouble to check with the owners about whether two dogs would be acceptable, while we were on hold, and the follow up was also good - sending through instructions and confirmation by email, how to get there, and other useful bits of information.

2 BayView was all we wanted in our holiday cottage, not only was it very clean but had everything we needed to make our stay very relaxing . We were left a very welcome package of milk, bread ,eggs ,tea&coffe plus a bottle of wine , enough to start the week off and very useful after our long drive to Amble . The view from the breakfast bar come drinks bar was great and the sunset was straight out in front of the window , just prefect . Also shops were just a couple of minutes walk away and Amble harbour with it's new retail again just 5 minutes walk . Overall we really enjoyed our stay at Bay View .

This is a fabulous little house to use as a base in Northumberland. It was warm and had very good facilities. I particularly liked sitting at the breakfast bar and watching everyone walking on the pier. Bamburgh is a 40 minute drive but the great beaches of Alnmouth, Walkworth and Druridge Bay are only minutes away. Amble had a great pier walk and its own beaches if you want to stay at home. Loved it!

Comfortable well equipt cottage with everything you need. Look out the kitchen over a lovely bay. The rims are very comfortable with a secluded garden well fenced so our dog could go out without any worry. Short walk to the harbour with exellant restaurant( the Old Boathouse ) the beaches are stunning all close by. If you are a dog owner the Pubs and Restaurants are dog friendly. We fully recommend this cottage.

What a gem, cottage is very homely, very well equipped and situated in a idyllic spot over looking the bay. There is a log burner which came in very handy for evenings with a glass or two after long walks on the numerous beaches. Great restaurants and pubs within walking distance, people very friendly - we don't have a dog , but the cottage is suitable if you do, the area is great for dog walks and all the pubs are dog friendly. Good location for visiting the East Coast, Holy Island, Hadrians Wall and the Kielder Forest, we had booked for a stargazing night at Kielder but due to the weather - no stars !! Great help from the owners Jacqinta & Tim. Many Thanks for a very enjoyable few days R & R.

Fantastic location for a quiet, tranquil Christmas - lovely walks on beach right outside front door with the towns facilities only 5 minutes walk away. Cottage is well equipped with log burner just right for settling in front of with a glass of wine - once the dog had been kicked out the way! Pet friendly, amiable neighbours, clean tidy and comfortable - we'll be back!

We stayed at 2 Bayview from 21st to 28th March.Everything was just perfect, a lovely welcome pack awaited us and the owners were fantastic in regards information on the area and where there if you needed them only a phone call away Amble is a beautiful place and the views from the house are stunning,you are only a short drive from Alnwick Castle where the Harry Potter films were made,also Holy Island is a nice place to visit. We could not fault the Holiday one bit and will definitely return there next year We can only give this holiday 10/10

Our greyhound loved the cottage, the beaches and the friendly town, and so did we. We had great walks along the beaches and also to Warkworth. The Masons Arms in Warkworth is very welcoming to you and your dog. And does nice sandwiches and beer.

stayed 4 nights in this accomodation, and it's location cannot be beaten. The cottage is well presented, clean and welcoming. Would benefit from having a couple of armchairs and coffee tables, 2x 2 seater settees were adequate for a couple, but would have felt cramped if 4 adults were sharing the accomodation. Nevertheless would certainly recommend to anyone wanting a short breakaway at a competitive price, in a friendly. picturesque small fishing town with good transport links and interesting history.

This holiday let was in a very nice setting as the dog liked walking out of the front door and straight onto the beach area. After being out for the day it was nice to come back and sit with a cup of tea looking at the view from the large kitchen window.

The house was perfect for us. wonderful views from the breakfast bar with passing boats, and little shore beach and grassy area just across the (quiet) road. This beach is enclosed by the harbour wall so is calm and safe for kids. Amble Links Beach, a 15 min walk or 2 min drive, is lovely. The house is comfortable, with all our needs thought of, the owners left a welcome pack of milk, bread, biscuits, wine etc which was great. The southfacing patio is enclosed and private, and the shrubs are a little haven for lots of tiny birds who feed on the birdtable. Location is great for beaches and castles (we did a walk from Craster to Dunstanburgh castle amidst spectactular coastal scenery, and afterwards had a lovely pub meal in Craster and bought kippers from the smokehouse). In Amble, plenty of local shops, amazing icecreams from Spurelli's cafe, lovely Puffin cruises from the harbour. a great holiday.

A fab cottage with a homely feel. A perfect base for discovering Northumberland! We spoke on the phone to the owner Tim who was friendly & helpful, he advised of some great places locally. A Lovely welcome hamper was waiting in the cottage! Everything was clean, fresh and comfortable. It really did feel like a 'home from home' especially with the wifi access, washer/dryer and great central heating system. The location is perfect, overlooking the bay & pier. Great for people watching too! Idea for dogs as the beach is less than a minute walk away and all the dog walkers we met were friendly & chatty. When it went dark all the rabbits came out and were hopping about on the pavement outside! The back garden is a bird magnet with feeding tables etc, we enjoyed keeping them well fed for the week. The website photos don't do it justice at all, I'd recommend updating them. Three of us stayed here, myself, husband and 15 yr old daughter along with our Border Collie. We hope to return very soon.

My self and my wife enjoyed the cottage. It's right on the seafront with a green and beach across a small path. The cottage was spacious,all mod cons and lovely and clean. We received a welcome pack which was great. There is a small co op just up the road for provisions or a tesco express in town. The chip shop locally is fantastic and there is a resturant called the boat house on the quay which was lovely.There is another in the town but didn't go there but was always full. There are plenty of walks locally and there is a file at the cottage with loads of info in it. We loved it and will be back

The owners are such friendly people that they alone made the booking and stay enjoyable - from the friendly tips on calling to arrange the key collection, the wonderful welcoming hamper (with home produced eggs) to the phone call when we arrived home to check all was well. The cottage itself is in a great place with the beach only 50m away, much to the extreme pleasure of our little dog, who couldn't get enough of it. Shops are about 200m away and a bit further for two pubs and a couple of takeaways. And then there is the Sunday market on the quayside, again only a couple of hundred metres away. The locality is all you expect from Northumberland with long sandy beaches and castles at every headland. Hope to go back again... need I say any more!

Booked this cottage at the very last minute on Christmas Eve for a stay starting on Boxing Day for 1 week. Reasonably equipped house, lots of children's games. Woodburner gave the cottage an Xmas/winter feel but also the central heating was very efficient. Lovely picture window for watching the world go by. Walk out of the door and straight onto the beach. Good location for the rest of Northumberland

Had a really good break here, the view at the front was wonderful and the back garden was private and would be fabulous in summer. Great log burner and the whole accomodation was very comfortable. Walk to pub, shops and village by turning left out of the front door, and miles and miles of sand dunes and cliffs, just turn right out of the front door, fab!! Very useful local walk guide in cottage, could take the dog, don't hesitate, you'll love it here.

Our three night stay was far too short to view everything on offer in the area. The house is located in a quiet area of Amble and looks out onto the harbour. The accommodation was clean, warm and cosy with all the amenities that we could have needed and more. Cinty, the owner contacted us with formation about access to the house, which was great as we could choose to arrive at a time to suit us. We would like to thank Cinty for leaving us a welcome pack which included everything we needed to make ourselves at home. We're already planning our next trip! :)

Cottage clean, comfortable and well equipped with 2 good sized bedrooms. It is situated in a great location overlooking a grassy picnic area + a small sandy beach and the estuary beyond it. Very convenient for walks along the beaches and coastal footpaths. Secure rear garden, good for dog/ small children. Local supermaket nearby with town centre a few minutes walk away. Quiet area at night. Owners friendly and helpful.

Cosy property with amazing views. Well equipped and very clean. Owners are exceptionally nice people and that's reflected in the generous welcome hamper.We found amble and its residents really welcoming and friendly. Fab walk starting up near Warksworth Golf Club which takes you right out along harbour defences opposite the property. Excellent lunch in said golf club.beaches at end of road, to the right, were a delight for us and our pooch.
