What Propology love about 1 Marks Bridge and Amble:

We love the stylish yet homely feel this property has, and the living spaces are not only spacious, contemporary and tasteful but are well planned with most of the accommodation offering lovely aspects over the attractive, well kept gardens. The kitchen is a dream room and the main bathroom is of a high quality spa style. It’s at this point that we realise that, with this bungalow, down-sizing might not be quite the right expression. It’s got as much room as apparently larger properties but is much more user-friendly. The ideal home in so many ways, in fact, for any life stage.

These days Amble is an eclectic, thriving harbour town with visitors coming from all over the world to experience the Northumbrian spirit and embrace its laid back attitude towards life. With its picturesque village harbour and award-winning marina, thriving food scene, endless sandy beaches and abundant opportunities for exploration by foot, wheel, paddle or sail, it is easy to see why this place is so popular. 1 Marks Bridge enjoys a particularly lovely tucked away setting in a small cup-de-sac, yet within walking distance to Amble town, you can enjoy the best of both worlds.

For wildlife Amble is home to the UK’s only puffin festival celebrating the 36,000-bird colony nesting on nearby Coquet Island, an RSPB seabird sanctuary. You can watch these charismatic birds from May to early August by taking a Puffin Cruise sailing from Amble harbour. Other seabirds and wildlife are in abundance in these shores, including Roseate terns and seals.

For sea faring activities  Amble has an award-winning marina and is 500 yds from Coquet Yacht Club where new members are embraced and welcomed. There are also numerous aquatic activities to enjoy including a surf school, sailing, kayaking, raft making, and sea fishing or just messing about in rock pools. A chat with the local fishermen will tell you why Amble is synonymous with the sea; tales of bygone years and tradition won’t fail to impress you.

The future Looking to the future it’s exciting for Amble over the next decade, plans for this small traditional working harbour include developing an aqua-cultural growth sector – possibly involving the local rearing of mussels and oysters – building on historic links with the fishing industry by creating a seafood centre with its own small business hub encouraging new fish restaurants and other sea related businesses.

Food glorious food Ice cream, fish and chips? You will find award winning boutique ice cream makers Spurelli alongside the harbour and two fantastic fish and chip shops close by. For finer dining check out La Famiglia located on the High Street, specialising in traditional Italian cuisine with a modern twist and fresh fish from Amble’s very own harbour. Dine at Jasper’s, a lovely bistro with a mouth watering menu for relaxed but quality dining. The Old Boat House on Amble Harbour is a seafood bistro set in an old boat shed, brightly lit, with rustic wooden floors and tables. It has an open kitchen with a wood-fired oven serving fresh local produce and there are big windows to enjoy the sea views. It also has the most inviting fish selection we’ve seen outside London or Padstow. The Fish Shack is just another amazing place to sample the local catch of the day or simply enjoy the beautiful views over Amble Harbour with Warkworth Castle in the distance. For a trendy evening, try the new wine bar called Radcliffes, specialising in beers, wines and gins from around Europe. Serving breakfast, lunch, bar platters, coffees and patisserie.

Shopping for goodies Search out bargains at the town’s lively Sunday market on the harbour. Wander around The Harbour Village for a fantastic selection of little boutiques based in 15 timber pods. For a wider range of amenities the market towns of Alnwick to the north and Morpeth to the south are easily accessible. The Historical village of Warkworth is only 1.4 miles away and picturesque Alnmouth is less than 6 miles both have Links golf courses.

Getting there Access to Amble is via the A1 or the Northumberland Coastal Route there are commuting possibilities from the East Coast mainline station at nearby Alnmouth and Newcastle International airport is approx. 30 miles away.
