Warkworth / amble

Dreaming of spring whilst wife and freeloaders watch call the midwife . Not explored Northumberland coast in our first year of ribbing. I have read a few previous threads . I think pikey Dave for one was going to look at launching . Thinking of perhaps heading one weekend and camping over . coquet Island looks like a good place to see the Puffins which I have not done yet. Have any of you stayed at warkworth and launched ?

I have called in and stayed there-many years ago now.

My memories are:
terrible food and not many places to eat
terrible accommodation and not many places to sleep
good marina but tidal
keep close to the wall/pier when entering and leaving
shudder and be thankful once you have managed to leave

I believe our esteemed leader knows much more than I (always the case!).
I MAY be a tad unfair about this port-of-call. It was many years ago now.

Is there somewhere we can park the campervan and stay overnight . The main reason I thought of warkworth was because there are shower facilities and somewhere to get a pint . What is there where you suggest . apart from passing through on the penine way too many years ago I don't know Northumberland well at all . So we Mel well try a few places over the next year or so . It's about 3 hours for us so we really need to crash somewhere in the van as well .

Cheers Brian . I think that's the problem with pubs and accommodation they change hands that often it's hard to keep upto date . I am more concerned with your view of the launch and route out as we are still pretty inexperienced . I will wait to see if others have used it recently
Thanks for your help
Steve

Steve there's a very good camping club site just across the road from the sea at beadnell half a mile from the launch site.
also one near seahouses.

why dont you think about keeping the boat in Amble Marina while your there?
they are very friendly, would let you park the trailer, its secure, showers, chandlery etc launch just a few hundred yards upstream.
Details on Boatlaunch.co.uk about that.
Lots of campsites in that neck of the woods as well.

That was exactly my thoughts . Is amble marina different to warkworth harbour ? When I look on google earth I can only seem to see one which seems to sit between the two places . I went into boat launch and it mentioned the slipway and facilities etc. Which would enable us to come and go as we please and then just kip in the campervan if there is somewhere to park it .
