  • “Lovely place to stay.”

    Great facilities. All you could want and more. When texted a query owner very helpful. Only negative is no mobile phone signal for either O2 or BT until drive a short distance inland but as on holiday not an issue. Will definitely recommend.

The property

Set in an ideal position close to the Harbour in the quaint coastal village of Craster, High Tide is a striking newly built modern detached holiday home offering the ultimate base from which to explore the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Beauty․ The house is set in a Private only area.

Perfectly suited to a family of seven or group of avid walkers or cyclists, this charming reverse-level dwelling sits just a stone's throw away from the sandy shores of Longhoughton and Embleton Beaches, and the hustle and bustle of the historical town of Alnwick.

Enter into this arresting abode and be greeted by four gorgeous bedrooms made up of a king-size with en-suite shower, two double rooms and a single, as well as a sophisticated bathroom where you can escape the excitement as you indulge in a relaxing soak in the bath tub.

Venture up the staircase to the first floor to find a light and stylish open-plan living space, adorned with chic grey furnishings and an abundance of sleek electric appliances, together creating a fabulous space to entertain your nearest and dearest.

Kick back on the inviting corner sofa and enjoy the luxury of a large smart TV or the entertainment from the Alexa.

Alternatively take to fully modernly equipped kitchen and cook up a delicious family feast for all to enjoy whilst gathered at the generous dining table.

On warm summer nights, be sure to continue the festivities out in the garden with drinks on the cushioned decking seating as you watch the sun slowly set on another incredible day exploring Northumberland's hidden gems.

If you would rather take an evening stroll along Craster Harbour you will find the local pub welcoming where you can sit outside with a beautiful view over the sea.

Watch as boats bob happily in the water as you spend your mornings wandering around the harbour, or grab your bikes from the shed and enjoy a thrilling cycle along the coast to see the eyecatching 14th-century ruins of the Dunstanburgh Castle, now owned by the National Trust.

The coastal paths in either direction allow you to explore the coast line beaches, and local area.

Visit the ancestral home of the Earls Grey, Howick Hall Gardens & Arboretum, or head to the neighbouring town of Alnwick for a tour of Alnwick Castle and Gardens, once the backdrop to many famous Harry Potter scenes.

Learn of the town’s rich local history at Fusiliers Museum Of Northumberland and Bailiffgate Museum, or explore the 12th century friary of Hulne Priory.

Meet the wild residents of Northumberland Country Zoo or spend the day cycling through the rugged terrains of Northumberland National Park and uncover The Drake Stone, Roman Marching Camp and Chew Green, amongst many breathtaking waterfalls and scenic hiking routes boasting unrivalled views of the encompassing countryside.

Travel north to the towns of Bamburgh and Seahouses both which boast beautiful beaches and also discover the coastal fortress of Bamburgh Castle, before taking a boat across to the Farne Islands National Nature Reserve to see Inner Farne Lighthouse and Puffins Rookery.

Holy Island is also just a few miles up the coast and defiantly worth a visit as this also has a intriguing castle and ancient priory.

Make the most of your time in Northumberland with an escape to High Tide House.

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.
