A superbly decorated and luxurious property with beautiful views of the harbour and out to sea. Enjoy cosy nights in front of the roaring wood burner or unwind and relax in the fantastic copper bath.

Whether you are drawn to the picture-postcard views of bobbing boats and sandy shores or the local delicacy of smoked kippers, Craster is a charming destination for your holiday. Sleeping five guests in a lavish setting, this property has marvellous views of the village and plenty of home comforts for families and small groups alike. Return from bracing walks along the coastline to luxuriate in the deep copper bath, and tuck into some local fare over a glass of wine in front of the wood burner.

Stylish and contemporary with a traditional twist, the interior of this stone property combines comfortable furniture with a hint of luxury. The open-plan living space has a dual-aspect wood burner for chilly nights, which is best appreciated over dinner at the table or whilst watching a film in the lounge. Cook up a storm in the elegant kitchen or perch at the breakfast bar with a glass of wine, stepping through the French doors to watch the boats from the seating area. Upstairs, the three bedrooms are ideal for a restful night’s sleep, two of which feature their own en-suite washing facilities including the master suite with its deep copper bath. Completing the property is a useful shower room.

Boasting traditional inns, a pretty shop and a popular smokehouse, Craster is brimming with potential for a seaside break in Northumberland. Sample the catch of the day fresh from the sea, relax on the sandy beach, or lace up your boots and walk the 0.5-mile route to Dunstanburgh Castle to soak up some history. Further afield, Howick Hall, 3 miles away, is an excellent destination for a day trip, especially if you take the time to spot the resident wildlife en route.

If you like style over function then go for it. Don't expect to play games in the evening, there not enough light also difficult to read in evening.

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
