Great stay at Shortys - had everything we needed and only a short walk into the centre of Amble. Proactive communication in advance, during and after stay. No issues at all.
Good size garden for the two dogs we had with us. Within easy walking distance of shops, good access to beach for dog walks and easy to get back on main route for other places to visit.
Great couches, comfy beds, good location for shops and amenities<br/>The garden needed a bit of attention.
Great location, clean house, good amenities close by. House was secure for kids and dogs
This semi-detached property was adequate for our needs and situated in a cul de sac on a residential housing estate which was quiet and an easy 10/15 minute walk to the town or the beach. We had a big problem with a broken bed in the double room and uncomfortable mattresses on two single beds. However the home owner ordered a new bed base and mattresses which arrived within 48 hours. The kitchen was well equipped with an abundance of crockery, cutlery, glasses etc. An extra fridge/freezer in the garage was handy, as was the downstairs loo. The upstairs bathroom had a roomy shower and good sized bath. There was a small conservatory leading to a decked area and lawn, which we made use of as the weather was lovely for our stay.
Location great<br/>The double bed needs replacing , you fall into the middle , we turned the mattress over to discover it was bed base not mattress. The single bed room was not much better . The dinning room chairs need some maintenance . Not the 1 st to tell these problems notes left in house from past people
The house was on a quiet street with plenty of parking ,the house was comfortable and it had everything we needed.<br/>The tv signal wasn't very good.
an excellent base to explore the beautiful area and beaches.
Great stay! Really liked the accomodation
Shorty's is a semi detached property in a quiet area. It was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. It was a super base to explore the Northumberland coast. Thank you so much.
Lovely, spacious home for a family to explore the beautiful Northumberland coast. Great location, great communication, felt like home from home. Would stay again.
Great place, and very helpful
Great place to stay
Amble is beautiful, the accommodation had everything we needed , the shower was lovely and warm. fully stocked kitchen , squeaky beds but didn't keep us up. large driveway and lovely garden . we would stay again. The host was very quick at responding too thank you !
The actual rental price was competitive however I was a little disturbed by the supplementary cleaning charge . Not too keen on the need to lodge a deposit for any damage incurred either . As we left the property clean and undamaged I hope to promptly receive refund of the damage deposit
Very clean, comfortable property in a great location
Comfortable and clean house in a quiet area. Garden enclosed so suitable for dogs. Amazing beaches nearby but nearest dog friendly beach a 40 minute walk or 5 minute drive. All in all a good property for a holiday/ break.
Location in residential area within walking distance of local amenities. Great to have parking and a secure garden for our dog. <br/>House was very clean but could do with some TLC although did have a new bathroom. TV reception very poor; boiler leaking water (reported). Amble is a good base for exploring the local area.
Comfortable house. It has everything you need and there is easy access to the Northumberland Coastal Route
Prefect for our needs. Enclosed garden good for the dogs. 10 minute walk to beach although dogs not allowed on Amble breach. Lovely area to stay.
Lovely home for exploring the Northumbrian coast.
Great location to visit the amazing sites of Northumberland. Be sure to take the Puffin Cruise to Coquet Island during nesting season to see the Puffins and Terns. Warkworth Castle and beach, Alnmouth Beach. The Old Boathouse for a fab meal and the market on a Sunday in Amble is fab.
The property was in good area, close to Main Street and marina. The property was let down by <br>1- the shower. Dangerous, either boiling hot or cold, no happy medium. <br>2- Front door sticking and difficult to open. <br>3-TV reception made it impossible to watch.
Great location and spacious clean accommodation
I would highly recommend Shorty’s as it’s well-equipped and spacious. We had a great week here and felt very much at home. The house is welcoming & in a nice area of Amble. We had some lovely day trips to nearby places like Warkworth and Druridge bay. I can’t fault the facilities and local amenities.
