This lovely, end-terrace cottage is in the town of Amble and can sleep four people in two bedrooms.

Lightkeeper House is a delightful end-terrace cottage situated in Amble, and benefits from wonderful coastal views. The cottage can sleep four people, and the first floor comprises of two spacious bedrooms and a lovely family bathroom. The ground floor at this cottage is open plan, and contains a sitting area with woodburner, a well-equipped kitchen, and a dining area with French doors that lead to the garden and yard with furniture. Lightkeeper House is a lovely, thoughtfully-decorated cottage in a convenient location.


Everything was perfect at Lightkeeper House. We can't decide who enjoyed it most, ourselves or our 2 King Charles Cavaliers! There were lots of castles and endless beaches on the coast and also plentiful walks on the beach a one minute walk from the cottage. Amble is a lovely small town with everything you need. Can't speak too highly of both the cottage and this beautiful part of England.
Mrs Warren

Lightkeeper House is a fabulous cottage. It was lovely to see the sea from all the windows. The open plan living area with the wood burner was lovely. Can highly recommend and will definitely be returning.
Mrs Parker-hale

We loved Lightkeeper House and will definitely book again. The property had everything and more than you could want. We needed somewhere to relax and this did the trick. The owners met us as we pulled up and were lovely and friendly. They should be really proud of this property.
Mr Mcdonald

The warmest most comfortable cottage we have stayed in. Can see the sea from nearly every window. Straight out of the house to great walks by the sea.
Ms Leitch

The cottage is excellent, worth a 4star rating rather than the three star rating. We enjoyed relaxing in the cottage, it is very warm and cosy, plenty of hot water for a long soak in the bath. The main double bed was extremely comfy and we slept very well. It is very quiet in the cottage and has parking outside. The Tv is superb, with sky tv, and sky good speed WiFi, to enable you to plan day visits using the internet each night. The property is comfy, a high standard of renovation to a lovely holiday cottage. Lucca our weimaraner loved the cottage, and its closeness to the harbour bar area for walks. Well situated after long days walking on the beaches at alnmouth, druridge, low newton, bamburgh, and days out at craster, seahouses, warkworth and alnwick. We cooked a hot meal each evening, 4 frying pans, 1 milk pan 2 very large stock pans and utensils were in the kitchen. Only criticism is the kitchen could have done with 1-2 medium size pans, and a medium or large casserole dish. We had to buy disposable foil casserole dishes from queens street hardware store. A bread bin may be good too. We still managed to make lovely evening meals each night. We only had one really wet day, when we rested in the afternoon at the cottage, after a morning exploring Amble in the rain and drizzle. We purchased a children's draughts set which we left with the cottages jigsaws on the bookcase. We love Amble which is really friendly and welcoming, queen street barkery does lovely gluten free cakes. We love the village cafe in Alnmouth staffed by people from Amble, who are very dog friendly and they do fab coffee and gluten free cakes, for each afternoon with a loyalty card buy 5 drinks get 6th free. Alnwick is close by for Sainsburys, Aldi and Lidl to buy in our main shopping for weekly food for breakfast and evening meals. Lucca, our weimaraner is made welcome in Northumberland, especially in Amble which is really dog friendly. He loves walks on the beaches daily. We are both disabled walking with one and myself 2 arm crutches. so find druridge, alnmouth, bamburgh, and low newton beaches very accessible. This is our third Sykes cottage holiday in Northumberland we love staying in Amble as our base. Of course we will be back at Amble, with Sykes, we were sad we hadn't booked a two week break. Unfortunately Lightkeeper House is so popular it often doesn't have a 2 week slot available, so 1 week had to be booked instead of 2 weeks. This is the best and most homely and comfy Sykes cottage we have stayed in so far, we will be 're booking soon for next year. The visitors book is full of wonderful comments by people who loved the cottage and want to return again.
