Craster Reach is a tucked-away terrace cottage in Craster Northumberland, situated in the heart of the intimate fishing village which nestles on the invigorating Northumberland coast. Stepping into the house from the hushed street, a spacious yet cosy, contemporary interior greets you. Its views from the upper floors are panoramic and life-affirming. Craster Reach is the perfect coastal retreat for up to six family members or friends to share good times and exhilarating adventures in one of the most breathtaking parts of the country.

The newly redecorated and refurbished mid-terrace coastal cottage welcomes you with a roomy, open-plan living area including a multi-fuel stove and sophisticated, laid-back Scandi-style sofas. It’s been said that this is the perfect luxury retreat to come back to at the end of the day, especially after a bracing and beautiful coastal walk.

The fully-fitted kitchen and dining area are not unfamiliar with a feast on Christmas Day, so are more than capable of coping with the rustling up of a soothing supper. Knocking up some of the town’s world-famous kippers for breakfast will provide the perfect sustenance for a day exploring the enchanting mix of fishing villages, market towns, wide-open beaches and magical castles.

This luxury coastal cottage has two double bedrooms, one with an ensuite, and a twin room with a family bathroom—white fluffy white towels are supplied. The beds are super comfy and dressed with Melin Tregwynt woollen blankets. The upper floors provide stunning views of the ragged silhouette of Dunstanburgh Castle.

French doors lead from the seating area to a rear deck with patio furniture, so no matter what time of day, you can sit with a refreshing drink as you plan your next adventure. Another set of French doors open out to the front of the cottage, where a perfectly positioned table and chairs allow you to take in the sea air and listen to the gulls. Don’t be surprised if the enticing aroma of oak-smoked kippers wafts from the nearby L Robson & Sons. There’s also handy off-road parking for two cars.

It’s just a two-minute stroll to the harbour. In a world of overly manicured gastropubs, there’s the wonderfully take-me-as-you-find-me Jolly Fisherman, a simple pub serving well-priced crab sandwiches that are perfect washed down with a pint of Black Sheep ale.

Lying six miles northeast of Alnwick, the quiet village of Craster seems to tumble into the sea. Sandy and salty, it was an important fishing harbour in the 17th century. And it’s safe to say that seafood is still Craster’s raison d’ être. There’s a fish restaurant, and the fish shop boasts the best kippers in the world. In the early 20th century, 2,500 herring were smoked here daily, and the kippers produced here today grace some of the finest breakfast tables in the world, including the Queen’s. The Farne Islands, Holy Islands and Hadrian’s Wall are all within easy reach.

The Northumberland coast is a birdwatcher’s paradise. Stonehatches are common in the area and look out for wheatear and linnet. The carolling of the skylark overhead fills the fields between Craster and Cullernose. Little auks are occasional visitors when bad weather blows them south from their normal habitats. Snow buntings winter along the shoreline in small flocks, and heron, curlew and redshank reside all year round. The Northumberland Coast—designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty—is abundant with wildlife and is as wild and windswept as it is utterly spellbinding.

What our guests say

A week in Craster in March

We had a great week at Craster Reach. The cottage was well equipped and comfortable, had good heating, a wood burner and plentiful hot water which was an essential with what the elements had on offer for us! The views of Dunstanburgh Castle from all the bedrooms is a bonus. Ideally situated for top walks directly from the property, the Jolly Fisherman, Shoreline Cafe and fish shop in the village did not disappoint and were all a delight. I would definitely come again.

Excellent holiday property

Excellent property with a high standard of decoration and equipment. Wonderful views of the castle from the north side of the property.

Mr Burgon

Magical holiday in Craster

The house is extremely comfortable and has everything you would need. The location is excellent with adequate parking which is at a premium in Craster. Hope to stay again next year.

Friends stay in Craster Reach

Lovely house in great location for exploring the area, with lovely coastal walks straight from the house, and we also enjoyed Bamburgh, Alnwick and Lindesfarne. Really well thought out layout to maximise the space, with plenty of room for 6 adults. Showers were really powerful and beds were really comfortable, kitchen was well equipped, and the welcome pack was a lovely additional touch. The weather wasn't the kindest so we enjoyed using the fire too. Would recommend the Jolly Fisherman for dinner, or just a drink after a walk - friendly staff and lovely food, although would suggest you book if wanting to eat at peak times.

Mrs Emuss


Terrific location, outstanding views, super comfortable, extremely well equipped house. Beds, power showers and kitchen equipment all top notch. Layout worked well for three generations. Sitting areas front and rear were welcome.
