Amble

Nowadays Amble is one of the most up and coming harbour towns on the Northumberland coastline.  Situated at the mouth of the River Coquet it looks out over the nearby bird sanctuary of Coquet Island, home to more than 36,000 seabirds, including the iconic puffin and rare Rosette Terns.  It also has a large seal colony too. Amble is the ideal base for the wild life enthusiasts and ornithologists as there are frequent cruises from the harbour around the Island and Amble is adjacent to the nature reserves of Cresswell, Hawxley and Druidge, with the regions many castles and museums within easy reach.
