The cottage is beautifully situated and very well equipped for a large group with varying needs. The cottage was warm and the welcome-pack generous. Overall the cottage and situation exceeded our expectations. Craster itself is small but characterful and ideally placed for exploration to nearby Alnwick and the wonderful coastline north and south. The 30' walk immediately out of the cottage along the shore to Dunstanburgh Castle provides an exhilarating start to your holiday.

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.
