This cottage is in a wonderful position but it is very basic and the pictures do not reflect what it looks like. The camera has taken highly lightened shots which gives an impression of bright smart interior which it is not. A great deal of tlc is needed to make it value for money. We will rent elsewhere next time.

Excellent location, lovely cottage, the only complaint I could argue with that it was a little TLC is needed,ie cupboards the Formica had peeled off, the blinds in the bedroom,at the bottom the beading had come off. Otherwise everything was fine. Thanks John Middleton.

A lovely cosy cottage overlooking the harbour. We found the heated towel rail in the downstairs toilet a godsend as the weather wasn't very kind. Having a utility room on entering the backdoor was very convenient when dealing with a soggy dog! It suited us perfectly (2 adults and a spaniel). It's on the coastal footpath and it doesn't take long to Read moredrive to some wonderful, dog-friendly beaches. Hide

The cottage location, as you would guess by its name, overlooks Craster harbour and is perfect if you love looking out to sea. The facilities were very good and the cottage itself was cosy and homely. Waking up to a sunrise over the sea each morning was magnificent and I really miss the sound of the waves at night. We visited many places & I would Read morerecommend Dunstanburgh & Bamburgh Castles especially. Barter Books in Alnwick was a surprising little place and I could have spent all day there if there hadn't been other places we wanted to visit. The Cottage Inn in nearby Dunstan village serves good food and Pinnacles fish & chips in Seahouses is also good. I'm sure we'll use Cottages in Northumberland again - possibly even the same cottage as it was such a good holiday. Hide

What a super place Northumberland is. We stayed in Harbour View Cottage and it was fine. We intend to visit the area again later this year. If you go there do the boat trip from Seahouses to the Farne Islands - ours was in June when all the sea birds were there also saw seals and dolphins.

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.
