Reviews

Lovely apartment, great decor, binoculars very welcome. When in the apartment, a lot of time spent watching the marina activity including the ducks and ducklings. Great location for attractions, beaches and places to eat and drink and of course walking and strolling.

Mrs W,

Excellent apartment with fabulous views. This is our 2nd visit to this property and we have a 3rd stay booked for April - hopefully this says it all about how we feel about this location!

Mrs T,

We have stayed in 6 properties in Coble Quay - this is the best for comfort and we hope to be back again soon.

Mrs S,

A beautiful apartment overlooking the marina and part of the boatyard, with every essential piece of kitchen equipment you could possibly need and lots more besides. Bin bags, squeezy, toilet rolls and dishwasher tablets all provided for a week. A perfect part of Amble to stay in with lots of restaurants and shops on your doorstep and no need to get the car out again as lots of places to walk to around the marina. A very enjoyable break.

Mrs S,

Excellent property and location underpinned by good company service

Mr Derek T,

Coastal Retreats are excellent. I use them every year Already booked for 2024.

Mrs Heather O,

We could not fault this lovely property. The views were superb. It was so convenient for restaurant’s,pubs and shops.

Mr Ken S,

Everything was just right, can't highlight anything in particular, just everything.

Dr David P,

Spacious and comfortable apartment very well located with constantly changing views overlooking the marina at Amble. Car parking on site and within easy walking distance of restaurants and shops in Amble as well as being extremely well located for visiting a variety of Beaches and places of interest. This was our second visit to this property.

A T,

Location

Right by the side of the marina in this bustling boat lovers' town, Quayside takes guests right into the heart of marina life. You can watch all the boat activity from the comfort of the balcony or living room - that's if you're not actually taking part yourself! Shops, cafes and restaurants aplenty are within walking distance, so you could park your car and forget about it. Boats sail to Coquet Island, which is known for its seabirds, daily in the summer months from the pier, just a few minutes away from the apartment.
A short drive away is the lovely village of Warkworth with its historic castle, art gallery, shops and beach. Alnmouth with its lovely beach and golf course is a little further north, 10 minutes by car, and the villages of Seahouses and Bamburgh are around 25 minutes away by car.
