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.

Craster is a fantastic location and the house was superb. Great facilities at the property and an ideal location for lovely coastal walks. Northumberland is a brilliant holiday location and we would recommend this house to anyone we know.

Miss Hughes, Wrexham, March 2014

High spec cottage, comfy beds, quality linen and a good info folder. Craster is a great spot with friendly cafes and pubs - both with excellent food. Good views and walks straight from doorstep.

Miss Lisle, Durham, January 2014

Location of cottage in Craster village; 15 mins to railway station with London connection, 25 mins to A1 - so easy to get to. Cottage warm and very comfortable so ideal for midwinter break. Well equipped kitchen so cooking for 6 no problem. Good beds, brilliant showers.

Mr Robinson, Cambridge, December 2013
