  • 200-year-old stone-built character cottage, moments from a harbour and unspoilt beach
  • The quirky cottage-style interior with exposed beams and vaulted ceilings adds plenty of charm
  • Catch some sun in the enclosed, south-facing, landscaped patio garden
Property code: OC-575797

Bursting with character, this historic former schoolhouse flawlessly blends stunning original features with homely touches and coastal charm which perfectly reflects the rich history of the surrounding unspoilt fishing village of Craster, a haven for outdoor explorers. With enchanting style and heritage features throughout, this is the perfect spot for an unforgettable family getaway.

In the lounge, the roaring wood burner housed inside a gorgeous inglenook fireplace, alongside exposed ceiling beams and coastal colour palette create a truly soothing ambience that beckons you to unwind on the comfy sofas and share stories of the day’s adventures. Tame the rumble of hungry tummies by whipping up a locally sourced feast in the contemporary kitchen/diner and make special memories with loved ones seated around the rustic farmhouse-style dining table. End a busy day by retiring upstairs to the en-suite king-size or super-king-size zip-and-link bedroom (which can be made up as a twin), both featuring high vaulted ceilings and original exposed beams that’ll transport you to centuries past. Make the most of your fresh sea air by dining alfresco with a glass of something chilled on the patio in the enclosed garden.

Nestled within the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the fishing village of Craster is popular with keen coastal explorers, offering some fantastic bird-watching opportunities plus the ruins of a magnificent fortress. Join one of the coastal walks from the village to be rewarded with unrivalled sea views and glimpses of the local wildlife; the walk from Craster Harbour (0.5 miles) to Dunstanburgh Castle is particularly picturesque. Venture to the harbourside village of Seahouses, 11 miles away, to jump aboard a boat trip to the Farne Islands or head to Bamburgh, 12.5 miles away, to explore its iconic historic castle and fascinating Grace Darling Museum.

Red Herring is situated in the beautiful harbour village of Craster. You will not find an abundance of shops, only a pub, a renowned kipper smoke house and a cafe. Craster suited us fine. Red Herring is an excellent property which has recently been refurbished to a very high standard. Plenty of room for four people to comfortably sit in the eveningRead more and a well equipped kitchen to cook in. No complicated recycling either! One minor suggestion would be a shaving mirror in the family bathroom. We enjoyed our stay very much and would love to return one day. The Northumberland area is spectacular. Hide
