Description

This is no ordinary quay to be beside! Amble's burgeoning marina life makes this quite 'the place to be' if you want to grab a slice of the sea views, boating activities and the lively cosmopolitan café culture building up around the water's edge.
Quayside is exactly as the name suggests, directly overlooking the water, the yachts and fishing boats. As a first floor apartment with balcony within a striking-looking contemporary building, it commands attention from the start. Step inside and the light and airy space draws you in and towards the vast views which are focused towards Warkworth Castle and the coast.

Quayside is in the same block as another Coastal Retreat, The Nelson, and would be ideal booked together for friends or family wanting to be close to each other.

The views alone at Quayside from the open plan kitchen, living and dining area, will make you feel like you have left the hustle and bustle of the real world behind. The high gloss kitchen is perfect for those who love to cook and socialise at the same time with its cooking island and breakfast bar. Each bedroom has the use of a bathroom, ideal for couples holidaying together, although you may fight over who has the master bedroom with its sea views. Pop downstairs and you are just steps from a deli/coffee shop, some of the North East’s best restaurants, and a fantastic boutique ice cream parlour.

Reviews

Great apartment with everything you could wish for. Great restaurants on the doorstep. Beautiful part of the world to explore.

Past Customer,

We have stayed in some high class hotels up and down the country and none have matched this apartment. Great décor and fantastic views in a lovely location. Thanks.

Past Customer,

Thank you so much we had a fantastic time at Amble even though the weather was not good. What a terrific place. We could not fault it at all - super modern, clean, comfortable, excellent views, so close to everything and we wanted for nothing. The owner has done a splendid job and the welcome basket was a lovely touch. We will recommend this place to every one and I am sure this will not be the last time we book this place again.

Past Customer,

Who needs St Tropez when they've got Amble? I've got so used to the lovely lifestyle afforded by this apartment that the next visitors had better check each and every cupboard to make sure that I'm not still here!!!

Past Customer,

Loved our stay in Amble! Beautiful sunsets, excellent fish and chips from The Harbour and ice-cream from Spurrelis. Excellent apartment, beautifully furnished and equipped.

Past Customer,

We found it hard to stop looking at the views through the lovely picturesque windows!!!

Past Customer,

Best apartment we’ve ever stayed in! The view is incredible. The apartment is so comfortable and well equipped. The welcome pack was of good quality and the cakes and marmalade just a treat. It is amazing how the little extras make a difference. It poured down for two consecutive days but the tv, WiFi, games, mags, books and jigsaws with a great view was not a problem! Fabulous week within Amble.

Past Customer,

10/10 Couldn't fault.

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.
