Amble in top ten places to live by the sea
Amble was described in glowing terms in a recent Sunday Times article. In a list of their top ten places to live by the sea, the Friendliest Port was praised for its regeneration in recent years.
“An enthusiastic regeneration scheme has transformed the harbour – now home to smart apartments, cafes, restaurants and the Northumberland Seafood Centre, a lobster hatchery and fish market – and with it the fortunes of the village (sic).”
The article continues: “Unlike (more expensive) second-home spots on Northumberland’s rugged coast, Amble stays lively all year. The friendly marina is used mostly by locals, there are weekend markets and the tasty selection of places to eat includes Spurreli, an ice-cream parlour where folk will queue happily for gelato even in the chilliest weather, as well as Sea&Soil and the Old Boat House, which both offer great seafood.”
First on the Sunday Times’ (alphabetical) list was Aberdyfl in Gwynedd, with towns like Hove, North Berwick and St Ives also in the top ten.
