Self-catering holiday accommodation in Craster
Offering a convenient base for some of the region's most exciting activities and attractions, Craster is one of many popular places to stay in Northumberland. Famous for its scenic harbour and, subsequently, the much-loved Craster kippers, this peaceful seaside village is an ideal spot for Northumberland coastal walks and a fantastic place to sample the local delicacies.
Our guide to holidays in Craster includes everything from sensational seafood to the dramatic Dunstanburgh Castle.
Dunstanburgh Castle sits atop the rocky Northumberland coastline and makes an ideal spot for watching the waves crash against the shore and witnessing the incredible, overpowering scale of the structure itself. Formerly one of the finest and largest fortifications in Northern England, these dramatic ruins are managed by English Heritage.
Arnold Memorial Nature Reserve is situated within Craster Heugh and provides a crucial habitat for a number of breeding and migrating bird species. On top of offering unobscured views of Dunstanburgh's breath taking ruins, the reserve is the first port of call for birds migrating across the North Sea and home to a selection of beautiful tree and flower species.
Craster Kippers are brought to seafood lovers across the UK by L. Robson & Sons - a family-run business famous for perfecting the art of traditional kipper and salmon smoking. With their own specialist shop and restaurant, L. Robson & Sons brings locals and tourists alike an authentic taste of Northumberland with the added bonus of friendly local service.
