    “A stunning setting with the fabulous sea views and the wonderful cattle in the farmyard.”

    The host coudn't be more helpful and welcoming. The cottage is well equipped and comfortable. In spite of the cold weather this April we were warm and cosy. The location was brilliant for walks in all directions. Would recomend this lovely place.

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 pull-out truckle bed is only suitable for a child.
Note: Two small well-behaved dogs welcome. No short breaks accepted. Towels and tea towels are not provided - please bring your own.
