    “We have been staying at Marie's Cottage for a few years now and as always, thoroughly enjoyed our stay.”

    It is a special cottage in a special place. The cottage is comfortable and welcoming and wants for nothing, with regards to facilities. Lovely views over the harbour and out to the sea. Disappointed that this year is the last year for rentals, as the owners are planning to make it their permanent residence. However, we are very grateful that we have had the opportunity to share their cottage and make happy memories there. Craster has not seen the last of us yet!

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.
