    “A lovely cottage in a great position in the village.”

    The kitchen was fine but was not particularly well equipped. For example, there was no bread knife and no large frying pan. Also, it would have been beneficial to have a light over the cooker.

About the location


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 king-size zip-link as standard, if you require this to be twin beds, please contact us.
No starter fuel provided for stove.
