Driftwood Apartment description

Holiday home
Driftwood Apartment is a delightful first floor apartment in the bustling fishing port of Amble-by-the-Sea close to Alnwick in Northumberland. The cottage can sleep four people in one twin and one double bedroom with a family bathroom. The rest of the cottage is made up of an open plan fitted kitchen dining area and sitting room with an electric fire. Outside the cottage is an enclosed gravelled area with outdoor furniture and off road parking for one car. Being located right in the centre of Amble, Driftwood Apartment makes the perfect holiday location for a family looking to explore the county of Northumberland.

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.

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.

In a great location, the description on the website doesn't do it justice, and it was a lovely flat with all the facilities needed for a relaxing time.

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.
