Tips from a local

Do something different and book surfing lessons on the beach with Northside Surf! If your inner beach board bunny is crying out for something a bit more exhilarating, then this is perfect to make your holiday memorable. The North Sea may be a little cooler than most, but the scenery is better!

Tips from a local

Have a walk along to Amble along the Estuary – the walk to Amble harbour will take around 20 minutes on foot and it follows the Coquet Estuary with its abundance of wildlife. Cut through the boatyard to get to the harbour front and watch the trawlers come in.

The harbour market on Sunday is interesting and you may even get some bargains!  The Harbour Village is a collection of interesting independent little shops in wooden huts, and there is a choice of fish restaurants and bistro’s for lunch.

 

Tips from a local

When it’s chilly outside and you need an afternoon ‘pick-me-up’, pop along to Cabosse, (the French Chocolatiere in the village) and ask for their signature hot chocolate. Louise Frederick – the owner – melts her handmade chocolate into hot milk, to create the silkiest, creamiest, richest hot chocolate you will have ever had. Warning: chocolate overload!

Owners of Bumblebee Cottage

A Little Note from the Owners:

“Bumblebee Cottage, along with its sister properties Honeycomb Cottage and Dove Cottage, are former farmworkers’ residences which we have recently renovated.

We love the quiet location and wide open spaces, but also enjoy having easy access to the beautiful villages, stunning beaches and dramatic countryside close by. It’s a treat to watch the local wildlife just outside the window and to be nestled within the slow pace of rural life. The cottages are south-facing, so it’s lovely to curl up in a cosy chair, soaking up the warming sun and dramatic light during the day and gazing at the big, starry skies at night.

Having brought this cottage back to life we now take a lot of pride and pleasure in personally preparing it for our guests to ensure that, like us, you find being here is a relaxing and rejuvenating experience.”
