  • "The best cottage we have ever stayed in."

    Such a perfect location. Waking up to a view of Craster harbour and a resident seal was wonderful.

  • "One of the best cottages we have stayed in it would be helpful to know the EXACT parking arrangements BEFORE arrivalShower door morev suiitable to a vertical limbo dancer needs changing."

    Please supply more toilet rolls 7 a kitchen roll

    Thank you for your feedback, regarding the shower door, the door now opens more freely, so perhaps a little easier for a LIMBO DANCER to enter the shower, due to the proximity of the Hand Basin and Bathroom door, it is the only safe option.. Property Owner

    Well equipped in the Kitchen, dining room and lounge….it’s all there! A wonderful place to relax and unwind, thank you.

  • "Loved the cottage and we were there for storm Babet so wonderful to have a cosy place to see the waves."

    My elderly parents particularly loved how cosy and comfortable the cottage was. I loved how well equipped the kitchen is. Only small issue was the neighbours were quite rude to ensure we knew there was only 1 parking space and seemed a bit neurotic about it - apart from that loved the cottage.

  • "We had a fantastic week at Marie's Cottage."

    It's a lovely home and very comfortable with lots of resources. We spent ages just sitting outside and people watching/ bird watching/ dolphin watching. Fabulous. Communication with Diana was always positive. If I were to have any suggestions, pint glasses would be useful and if towels were provided it would just have been a bit more convenient.

  • "The cottage was like a home away from home with everything we needed to enjoy our stay."

    My one criticism would be that the curtains in the top bedroom let too much light in, especially when you consider that the sun rises at that side of the house. A secondary blind or shutters would be useful. I appreciate that this is a relatively minor issue and that it should not take away from the fact that the cottage was one of the best that we’ve ever stayed in.

  • "We stayed for a fortnight and settled in as at home after a day."

    Perfect for a couple with two children. Truly lovely property, the location, the rooms, the view; warm and with space to spread out over three floors. Fully equipped kitchen, fast internet and Netflix, A home to stay in most of Christmas and New Years days, to walk the dog early in the morning before day trippers arrive, to look at the dark starlit skies when they leave. And visit the area's beaches and towns. Recommended!

The property

Maries Cottage is a restored fisherman’s cottage enjoying a sublime setting in the pretty harbour of Craster in Northumberland.

Perfect for a family break, the property combines character features with all the home comforts you would expect from a high quality holiday home.

The inviting sitting room is incredibly welcoming with a feature beamed ceiling, original sash windows and a traditional inglenook fireplace with inlaid woodburning stove, creating a warming focal point to the room and is somewhere you can imagine curling up together and enjoying each other’s company.

The kitchen is fully fitted and comes with everything needed to produce delicious food for the whole family and the adjoining dining room is really stylish and set up ready for guests to gather and indulge in leisurely meals together.

The outside courtyard is a delightful, sunny spot to soak up any rays and enjoy eating and drinking alfresco.

All that fresh sea air will have tired everyone out, so guests can choose from two elegant bedrooms, a twin and a king-size; both are beautifully presented and give guests the opportunity to recharge their batteries.

Make sure you find time for a relaxing soak in the feature slipper bath which adds a real touch of luxury to the accommodation.

You’re in a great location at Maries Cottage overlooking the harbour of Craster which boasts some of the best beaches in Northumberland.

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.

A beautiful cottage in a stunning harbourside location, Maries Cottage offers a holiday home-from-home which will delight and inspire guests.

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.
