  • "We love staying at Summer Rose, this is third time we have stayed, the house is always immaculately clean when we arrive and has everything we need for our holiday."

    My two young children love the bunk room with TV and watching the waves from the lounge. Craster is a fantastic village, we enjoyed the walks to the castle, obviously going to the Jolly Fisherman again and lots of dog walks on the beaches. This is house is a perfect base for a family based holiday in the North East, we would definitely recommend it to all.

    Hi Abi, thank you for your recommendation, it’s much appreciated. Great to welcome you and your family back to Northumberland again. It sounds like you all had a fabulous time. Best Wishes, Phil Property Owner

    Hi Penny, we have changed cleaners recently who supply a different welcome pack, which I think is what you are referring to from the pictures. We are glad you found the house fabulous and hope to welcome you back next year. Best Wishes Phil & Abi Property Owner

    Well equipped kitchen, complimentary dog treats were a nice touch. The beds are very comfortable and the garden was well kept and a nice place to relax after a busy day sightseeing.

    Hi Adrian, many thanks for your feedback, it sounds like you had a great time at the house exploring Northumberland. Glad the dogs enjoyed the treats. We hope you come back next year. Best Wishes Abi and Phil. Property Owner

  • "We all had a fantastic time at house."

    Very comfortable. Brilliant for the dogs as fully enclosed garden. The only thing lacking was better outdoor furniture to sit in the sun. Also would definitely NOT recommend The Jolly Fisherman for dinner as was pure rip off. Brilliant location for fantastic walks . House well equipped

  • "House was as expected, biggest let down of the week was no fault against the owner but the generator running full time on the street outside the close, was a small nightmare, you could hear it, even though closed windows (which it was way too hot for) and you could feel it vibrating as well, whilst laid in bed at night, you lost the quietness of the remote village we were after."

    Previous bookings had gone off with the Amazon Alexa device, kitchen soap and had put away dirty oven trays which was disappointing, but the house was well stocked with everything else and clean. We also had the madness of a film crew taking over the village for most of the week 7am-6pm, with road closures, coaches of extras, drums, morris dancers, and fire etc, it was quite entertaining.

    Hi Sarah, thanks for leaving some feedback for us, unfortunately during your stay the majority of the Craster area had continuous power cuts that we had to deal with for some time. I’m glad you found the house well stocked and clean and we hope to welcome you again soon. Best Wishes Abi and Phil. Property Owner

  • "An amazing property, wonderfully located in Craster, with great views out towards the sea."

    The house is a great base for visiting other parts of Northumberland, we always finished our day off with dinner at the Jolly Fisherman which is lovely and very dog friendly. The house itself was really well equipped (we were a party of 8) and my youngest two loved the bunk beds. TV’s in every room, comfy beds and sofas and nicely decorated, like a home from home really. Thank you for the welcome pack, it’s always nice to arrive to some Prosecco. We will definitely be back in the summer. Thank you

    The house was very clean and well presented with everything we needed for our family New Year stay. A view of the Harbour and sea from the Living Room window, and a 2 minute walk to the centre of the village was a perfect setting. We will definateley be returning to Summer Rose.

  • "People with dogs should be told there is only one exit in the house and that is through the patio doors of the double bedroom."

    So a mat would be good when it is wet outside. You can go out the front door and go through the side gate. Also had to report that the centre of the microwave was missing, so this stopped the plate from revolving. This was reported at the time.

    Hi David, thanks for your feedback, we will get the microwave looked at. We always welcome dogs at our house but would always expect them to go into the garden via the side gate rather than the through the master bedroom. Best Wishes Phil & Abi. Property Owner

    We loved the open plan upstairs, which was great for family meals and lazy days on the super comfy sofas, with great views out towards the sea. Huge amount of board games, quality mattresses which you don’t usually get in holiday homes. I could go on. Craster is an amazing location for families, the Jolly Fisherman was fabulous and there are so many places to explore on the coast which the owners left information on. Highly recommended to all and we will definitely be back.

    Dear Abi, thank you so much for your kind feedback. It was great that your family enjoyed all the little extras, we have also just installed NOW TV with Sky Sports for our guests. Have a great Christmas and we look forward to welcoming you back for a week in July 22. Best Wishes Phil Property Owner

    The house it’s self is perfect for family and friends. Everything you could want or need is already there waiting for you including a few extras from the owners that was really thoughtful. Everything is tastefully furnished and all the rooms feel light and airy. Bbq was an added bounce as was the washing machine. Being dog friendly made it a real winner. The location to the village is seconds and a bus stop right opposite the turning which can take you along the coast to local villages and then a lovely walk home along the coast. If I get my way we will be returning in the not to distant future. Thank you Summer Rose for a memorable first visit to Northumberland.

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.
