Expressions of interest are sought by 7 April 2017 from an established hotelier to deliver a bespoke, high quality hotel and leisure facility that will add an extra dimension to Amble.
The development is owned by Arch – The Northumberland Development Company, the commercial arm of Northumberland County Council, who operate as an investment and asset-based business with a £280m portfolio of commercial and residential property.
Arch is committed to the regeneration of Northumberland, and Amble in particular, and are looking to deliver a cohesive investment masterplan that will deliver jobs and contribute to the economy of the town.
With regard to the site, they are looking to work with third parties to deliver a mix of uses on Coquet Enterprise Park, which could include in addition to the hotel, a veterinary practice, caravan park, retail units and a manufacturing facility.

Amble is a prosperous coastal town located 30 miles north of Newcastle, 40 miles south-east of Berwick-upon-Tweed and 15 miles north-east of Morpeth.
The town is located on the A1068 road which links with the A1, 9 miles to the north-west and the A189 (which leads to Newcastle) 14 miles to the south. The nearest rail service is at Alnmouth, approximately 8 miles to the north-west with Newcastle International Airport providing the nearest air link.
The development is located on a prominent site on the A1068, just south of Coquet Enterprise Park. It is a superb location for a hotel holding a prominent position on the North East Coastal Route and directly opposite a new Persimmon housing development, sitting as part of a wider investment of Coquet Enterprise Park and complementary to the investment in housing and the quayside.
Planning has been granted for the construction of a new hotel comprising 30 en-suite bedrooms; bar and restaurant; outside terrace; children’s play area and associated car park. Full details can be found via Northumberland County Council website – planning ref: 16/04307/FUL.
