A wonderful and stylish property with magnificent views directly over the harbour and out to sea. Relax in the fantastic copper bath or enjoy cosy nights in front of the roaring wood burner.

The fishing village of Craster on the Northumberland coastline is famous for its scenery, friendly hospitality, and local delicacy – smoked kippers. Studded close to the bobbing boats and sandy beach is this charming property, which offers a contemporary retreat for six guests. Stroll through the village to the smokehouse, pausing to sample local fare in one of the eateries and admire the spoils at the art gallery and shop. There are walking paths galore and, for a fee, you can charter a boat for fishing.

Elegant and spacious, the interior of the property is characterised by stylish furniture, chic decor and all the gadgets you need for a comfortable stay. Perch at the breakfast bar of the bespoke kitchen whilst the resident cook prepares a meal, then enjoy supper around the table. A wood burner keeps the lounge warm on chilly evenings whilst you unwind with a good film. Upstairs, all three bedrooms are well-appointed for a restful night’s sleep, two of which have en-suite facilities including the master suite with its deep copper bath. The property has patio seating for al fresco drinks, and there is off-road parking for three cars.

A short 0.5-mile walk will take you along the coast to the imposing Dunstanburgh Castle, which is also the location of a popular golf club. Howick Hall and Gardens can also be reached within 3 miles, and the route itself is excellent for wildlife spotting. Venturing further afield will bring you to pretty beaches such as the remote sands of Longhoughton, 5 miles away, close to the ancient fishing village of Boulmer that has a dark history of smuggling and pirates.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Absolutely beautiful property, luxuriously appointed. Stunning scenery and walks straight out of the front door. There is no garden attached so parents of young children and dog owners need to be aware of this. You need to drive for most food shopping and Alnwick is the nearest for supermarkets.

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.
