What Propology love about Windy Edge and Amble
Windy Edge is a fabulous family home in a stunning location. We love the position of the house and of course the incredible views. We especially like all of the glazed windows and doors in the house where the sellers have maximised the view from the inside out. The gardens are peaceful and beautiful in their own right, combined with the setting, we think this is the perfect coastal country home.
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. For finer dining check out Zecca located on the High Street, specialising in traditional Italian cuisine with a modern twist and fresh fish from Amble’s very own harbour. The restaurant also boasts a traditional wood fired pizza oven & open kitchen. Dine at Sea Salt, 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.
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.
