The Schooner Inn is tucked away just off the centre of Amble on Lime Street, just off the Harbour and close to the Marina.  The large sunken walled garden to the Schooner has access to a popular footpath to the Harbour and outskirts of the town. A great deal of new housing stock and many tourist visitors during the season, it is this custom, with the more affluent locals, the project is looking to attract.  An opportunity of circa 4,700 adults within 20 minutes walking distance, excluding tourist visitors expected to increase during the summer months. Several community wet and mainstream competitors create a vibrant circuit. The Schooner is a 45-minute drive from Newcastle and 13-minute drive to Alnmouth where there is a mainline station.
