Sleeping four people in two bedrooms, this terraced cottage is in Amble, just yards from the beach.

19 Gordon Street is a terraced cottage in the fishing port of Amble. The cottage has a double room and a twin room, along with a family bathroom. Downstairs is a kitchen, dining room and sitting room with electric fire. Outside, there is a small enclosed yard with furniture, and parking can be found on the roadside. 19 Gordon Street makes an ideal base for enjoying Amble, Warkworth, Alnwick and beyond.


We stay at many self catering accommodations around the country throughout the year and this is most definitely one of, if not the best we have ever stayed at. The owners Sally and Sandy are both so welcoming and generous. Amble is a wonderful small town with a small yet busy fishing harbour. All the people in and around Amble are so friendly. Great for dogs (though not allowed on beach between May-Sept) many of the pubs etc around allow dogs in. If you like freshly cooked mussels then The Fish Shack is wonderful. The pier makes for a lovely evening/early morning stroll. Small safe sandy beach for kids to play on, rock pools too. All within very short walk of property. Walkworth with it's castle is within walking distance too, if you don't mind walking a bit further. Compass House has everything you could possible think of to make your stay comfortable, not to mention every kitchen gadget. We saw a seal in the harbour most evenings. We would love to return one day.

Compass House is a great place to stay, it was very homely and comfortable. The owners came round to ensure our stay was nice. It was not too far away from beach and centre.

Compass House is a lovely cottage close to the harbour and cliff top walks. We had everything we could need in this cottage. We could not fault it.
Miss Watson

Lovely charming cottage, very dog friendly, everything you need for any length of stay we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, all fittings done to a high standard and very very comfortable the street itself is also very quiet. Lovely little beach about thirty seconds from the door and lots of great places to visit locally. Lots of nice places to eat as well thoroughly recommend the villages of Alnmouth and Warkworth and as usual for Northumberland the beaches are out of this world. Would recommend this cottage and its lovely owners to anyone.

Compass House is a really well equipped, warm, welcoming, home from home. The location in Amble is great, one minute from the harbour and a few minutes walk from a traditional high street.
