Dovecote Corner is a quirky end of terrace cottage tucked away in the popular coastal village of Amble-by-the-Sea, and it can accommodate up to 4 people.
It is perfect for a couple or a small family, with up to two dogs, looking for a cosy base to discover the delights of the Heritage Coastline.

The space
The bustling working Harbour, shops, pubs, award winning restaurants, sandy beach and pier walk are a few steps away.
A few minutes' drive brings you to historic Warkworth, with its medieval castle, charming shops, river walk and pubs all serving good food.
Comfortably furnished, this sunny cottage offers two bedrooms...one double and one bunk room....and a bathroom with a big old fashioned bath for those long soaks after a tiring day on the beach. There is also a shower.
A small fitted kitchen and bright sitting room with woodburning stove, TV with freeview and DVD player, books, board games, DVDs and wifi complete this pretty cottage.
Why not take a trip Alnwick Castle and Gardens, or discover one of the many coastal walks, taking in a pint and a crab sandwich somewhere along the way?
The beautiful villages of Bamburgh, Seahouses, Alnmouth, Boulmer, Craster, Newton by the Sea and many others are all waiting to be discovered...the golden beaches are endless.
This lovely cottage is perfect for exploring Northumberland and the surrounding area.

Amble, England, United Kingdom

I moved to Amble by the Sea six years ago and I just love it!
Here are just a few things;
1. A proper working harbour with sea going boats..when they land the fish, gulls whirl about to see what they can steal. You can buy fresh fish at the Harbour every day. There’s a beach to meander on and when the tide is out you can walk down to Hauxley, a little village south of Amble.
There are boats for hire to see Coquet Island..a bird sanctuary about a mile off the coast ...or for fishing trips...at the Harbour too.
2. A pretty, picturesque Marina with lovely boats to have a walk around with a nice bar, with views going up to Warkworth one way and down to the pier the other. Great place to take sunset photos. This is beside the Braid, which is a big grassy area where you can run your dogs.
3. Last year, Amble won the best coastal High Street. We have a great selection of shops and , at a time when some High Streets are declining...we’re expanding.
4. The Pods..these are upended boats made into little, cute craft and artisan shops. They are located at the Harbour, round the corner from the cottage and sell arts, crafts and specialised foods. There is a lobster hatchery there too...we’re trying to expand the lobster colony here. If you call in they’ll show you lots of the tiniest lobsters!
5. Great restaurants on the doorstep! No taxi required. The Boatyard has won awards for the last 2 years as the best fish restaurant in the U.K.
6. A good selection of pubs, bistros and coffee shops....most of them dog friendly....in particular, a few small breweries have popped up in the last couple of years.
7. Lovely walks..by the sea or in the country..Amble is also very cycle friendly..hire bikes are available locally. Kayaks and surf/paddle boards are also available for hire....tuition is available if required.
8. Golden beaches that stretch for miles...even in the Summer you can find stretches of beach with no one else there!
9. Lots of local picturesque villages..castles..secluded bays..nice pubs..great restaurants..fab art shops...bird sanctuaries...golf beside the sea...all within a few miles of Amble by the Sea.
10. And ..the greatest Northumberland foible...you can’t go anywhere without people saying ‘hello’ ...your Dovecote Corner neighbours will treat you as if you’ve lived in Amble for years!!
Amble by the Sea isn’t called ‘the friendliest port’ for nothing!!!

I’m Diane..I’m semi retired but like to have lots to do...Dovecote Corner is a new project for me and has, in fact, become an extension of my home.. I’m really enjoying it. I like travelling to places with a bit of history/eating out/movies and theatre/walking/books/all sorts of music/meeting people.
