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 The house overlooks Ambles 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.

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 recent addition of the Fish Shack on the foodie scene 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.
