    “We thoroughly enjoyed the spacious and well equipped "castle", as my granddaughter labelled it.”

    Michael and Fiona had supplied a number of extras which the children loved and benefitted from - toys, steps, toddler toilet seat, buckets, spades, nets, slide and trampoline to name but a few. The configuration of the property allowed 3 families to be together and still have their own space when needed. Thank you so much to Michael and Fiona, whose attention before and during our holiday was reassuring but unobtrusive. All in all it was perfect!

About the location

CRASTER

Alnwick 7 miles; Embleton 3 miles.

A picturesque village that seems to tumble into the sea, Craster was an important fishing harbour in the 17th century and is still famous for its oak cured kippers which have graced the best breakfast tables for more than 150 years. The village offers a pub serving food, a fish restaurant and Robson's famous fish shop. There is also an excellent children's playground. Nearby are some of Northumberland's finest sandy beaches. Just south of Craster is Howick Hall, which was built in 1782 and has associations with the Grey family, including Earl Grey the great social reformer and tea enthusiast. The gardens at Howick Hall are open to the public during the spring and summer and are especially worth a visit during the rhododendron season. A walk along the coastal footpath to the north of Craster brings you to the dramatic ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle - the largest ruined castle in Northumberland.

Note: The bed in bedroom 2 is a super-king zip-link as standard, if you require this to be twin beds, please contact us.
