Contemporary Sea Front Escape in Charming Amble
As the name suggests, Seascape is a comfortable, modern and stylish coastal home with the most magnificent sea views out along the Amble Pier, the lighthouse and when out on the terrace, out to Coquet Island. On a clear day you can see up the coast to Dunstanburgh Castle and the whole of Alnmouth Bay. Like its sister property, Bay View, just 2 doors away, this gorgeous coastal holiday home is a great escape to the coastline to watch the ever-changing seascape of the dramatically beautiful North Sea.
The next door neighbour to Seascape is currently carrying out building works to their property. For this reason, the rental rates for Seascape have been reduced by up to 40% to reflect the fact that there may be occasional noise disturbance, and you can see some of the works from the front of the property. There is no given time scale of the building work, but in the meantime, Seascape is perfect for those wanting to experience the beautiful Northumberland coast in a luxury property, with gorgeous views on a budget. Click ‘Read More’ below for more details.
Seascape sleeps 4 guests in 2 bedrooms. 1 king size room with floor to ceiling windows looking out towards the pier and out to sea, and a twin bedroom. There are 2 bathrooms; an en suite shower room to the master bedroom and a family bathroom with a bath and shower over.
The open plan living area is perfect for the relaxed coastal position of Seascape and to benefit from the views. The kitchen, dining area and lounge are very comfortable for 4 guests.
2 small-medium size dogs are welcome here and there is free Wi-Fi as standard.
Important Note – Current Building Works Next Door
The neighbour to the side of Seascape is currently carrying out renovations to their property. The properties aren’t attached, but you can see the works to the left of the view out of the front windows.
Whilst this doesn’t disrupt the view at all, as the sea view and pier occupy most of the right side of the view, there is evidence of works to the left, with building materials visible. The renovation is being carried out by the owner himself, so disruption isn’t for long periods of time. There may very occasionally be deliveries to the front of the property, which is public land.
For this reason, the owners are offering a much reduced rental rate to reflect the effect of the neighbouring works. This allows couples and families to experience a luxury property in a very enviable position on a much lower budget.
The rental rates will increase to the normal market rate as soon as the building works are complete, however if you book at the reduced rate and the works are complete by the time of your holiday, the rate you have paid will be honored.
Entrance is to the hallway with a cloakroom and stairs leading to the bedrooms and bathrooms on the first floor. A door leads to the open plan lounge/dining area.
The kitchen is open to the living area but is spacious too. With a large, integrated fridge/freezer, microwave, kettle, toaster, cafetiere, electric oven and grill, ceramic hob and washing machine and the dining table comfortably seats 4 guests.

The patio is furnished with a picnic table and looks out to the Amble pier and the lighthouse, with a great vista of the rock pools when the tide is out.

Tips from a local
Go surfing! There is a great, little surf community in Amble, with Northside Surf School offering private and group lessons all year round. Jon is a qualified surf instructor and lifeguard, and is great fun for a family day out. Whether you’re looking for a bit of a laugh in a group session, or to improve your skills in a one-to-one lesson, Jon is highly recommended, and can even take you to the ‘private beach’ on the other side of the harbour! All equipment and wetsuits are provided – so what are you waiting for?!

Tips from a local
Take a stroll around the Sunday Market to see the town bustle in full flow. The traditional market is held around Amble Harbour every Sunday. From Seascape, head out around the pier to blow the cobwebs away, and the market begins at the other end. Don’t miss out the wooden pods in the Harbour Village, where you’ll find local businesses, artists and food huts, with a breath-taking view across the harbour and up the estuary with Warkworth Castle in the distance.

A Word From The Owner
My grandfather moved to Amble to work as a stonemason in the 1890s. My father spent his life here 1910-2000 working as a grocer on Queen Street. I left Amble to pursue a career in town planning, but always intended to return to buy somewhere with a sea view when I retired. But didn’t expect to find something as good as this!
After early retirement, my wife Christine and I bought the land to build 3 cottages at the end of Bay View, right on the end of the promenade and we’re delighted with the results. Our architect has fully exploited the potential of the location. The outlook across the harbour and out to sea is constantly changing and is quite mesmerising at times. It’s a very relaxing place. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
