Fantastic location. Car parking for 2 cars a bonus. Private garden is lovely overlooking the harbour. Having 3 bathrooms was brilliant. This cottage is the place to be for a family get together.

Lovely cottage just opposite the Harbour. Comfortable and not too upmarket to feel you couldn't relax. Unfortunately the weather was not brilliant during our stay so it was useful to have the porch area for wet boots and coats. Grandchildren loved the rockpools along the coastal walk and crabbing in the harbour.

Harbour house was a beautiful place to stay, it's very well equipped for an extended family holiday. It was lovely and warm on the cold days we had, and cool enough on the hotter days.

This was our third visit to the house - the location is superb, looking straight out over Craster Harbour; it is very comfortable and well-furnished, but not so smart you feel scared to breathe; the kitchen is well-equipped.; it is big enough to house us as a group of friends. I would thoroughly recommend to anyone.

Harbour House is in a perfect location right next to Craster Harbour. It was very peaceful, had its own little garden at the front and everything we needed for a family holiday. Location was the best.

Light and roomy, well equipped, everything we needed. Setting beautiful, great location for many activities and days out - there is still plenty we haven't seen in the area.

Very spacious, more than enough room for six adults and three children. The cottage had everything we needed. The weather was good so we didn't need to use the heating, so could not comment on that side of things. Its so easy to get to everywhere you would want to go. We visited Holy Island, The Farne Islands and other National Trust places in the Read morearea. We were lucky enough to see Dolphin off the coast of Craster and were told they appear regularly. This was about 6.45 at night. We managed to see lots of Puffins but were told that they would be gone in about a week. Visitors need to know that the bird population is best seen in May and June. Also, maybe warn visitors to keep their fish and chips to themselves. If food is thrown about the birds come in and it could be very distressing to some people. Hide

Superbly located in Craster with plenty of room, local to many attractions including Alnwick castle and gardens, Bamburgh, the Farne Islands, Lindisfarne, Amble, Cragside and beyond. The harbour as your view from the windows and garden, the rock pools and Dunstanburgh castle on the doorstep. Great seafood, good pub. What is there not to like?! Don'Read moret expect much in the way of mobile phone service but that is part of the attraction. We loved it! Hide

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.
