This cottage was perfect for our holiday in a quiet setting close to Craster.The picture of the main living room makes it appear larger than it is but it was still fine for our needs.

A very cosy cottage, most suitable for a couple but a little small for a family in the downstairs space. No mention made about the lack of a back garden and very little front garden!!!!!!!!

Reviewed by Maggie 10th May 2019

An ideal location to explore Northumbria. Walking distance of the coastal path and the quaint harbour of Craster. Clean, with all the amenities needed. An excellent location for a pub serving good pub food. The cottage is described as snug but it is small. I was pleased we were only a couple.

Small cottage but good location. In need of some attention but worked for us. Pleased there was only two of us in the end however.

A great location and a comfortable cottage for a couple.

Cottage is a good size for two people, but might be a bit small with two young children on a wet day! Location is great..about 10 minute gentle walk to Craster and then access to the wonderful Northumberland coast.. a very friendly pub just a few yards away ... from which we didn't get any noise as patrons arrived or left .. and food was excellent!

This was a lovely, cosy cottage, which was very nicely fitted out. The location was excellent - really close to Craster, the coast and the very nice pub The Cottage. We had a lovely holiday.

If you’re looking for a seaside holiday with a difference, visit Northumberland – a region brimming with beautiful golden, sandy beaches, rolling hills, craggy moorland, bustling market towns and fishing villages, and more castles than in any other county in England.

Situated in the North East of England, this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty boasts no less than 39 miles of unspoilt coastline to explore and a calendar packed with exhilarating water sports options. To indulge in a spot of surfing, kayaking or powerboating, take a trip to one of the many breath-taking Northumberland beaches - where dogs love a good walk and fresh local seafood is never far away.

Home to the awe-inspiring Cheviot Hills and the historical Hadrian’s Wall, the Northumberland National Park is renowned for its open spaces, award-winning Dark Skies and stunning rural backdrops - and is the least populated national park in Britain. Offering access to challenging hikes, horse-riding, rock-climbing and a multitude of other action-packed activities, the park is one of the region’s greatest draws.

There is a huge range of spectacular wildlife and sea life waiting to be sighted, whether you take a boat ride to the Farne Islands to admire the colony of Atlantic grey seals and puffins, or explore the Kielder Water and Forest Park, home to magnificent ospreys. If it’s history you’re looking for, the imposing Bamburgh Castle and the world-famous Alnwick Castle are undoubtedly worth a visit.

Alternatively, if you’re seeking the bright lights of a city adventure, Newcastle upon Tyne is the place to go. Here, you can experience world-class culture, outstanding attractions, superb shopping, impressive live shows, top entertainers and delicious cuisine in abundance.
