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

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

Property beautifully presented. Well equipped plus a very generous welcome pack on arrival. Views stunning from upstairs. Spot on location for everything. Would love to return. Thank you.

Mr Hope


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.

Mr Gutteridge

Probably the best rental house in Craster

This cottage benefits from its central Craster location. Bedroom views of the Castle and harbour, walking distance of excellent friendly food serving pub with sea views. The smokery nearby also sells essentials like bread, milk etc, parking for 2 large vehicles.

Central in a stretch of outstanding coastline preserved by the National Trust.

The open plan living space downstairs with wood burning stove (wood etc included), entertainment system which is easy to navigate, well stocked kitchen with dishwasher etc makes it easy to entertain family and friends at the cottage.

The beds are sooo comfy, with quality linens and large fluffy towels make it just that more Luxe cottage experience. The showers have great water pressure, with endless hot water - just the thing when you've been caught out by the weather!

The thoughtful welcome package for both humans and dog - take the pressure off if you've forgotten an essential, and give you the opportunity to taste the local produce.

The cleanliness of the place is to be commended. Rarely have I visited a place as clean! A secure backyard gives pet owners peace of mind, and opportunity to share the outside space with their dog. Also a hose to wash your dog and boots off! All very well thought out.

A perfect stay

We had the perfect stay, the property was exceptionally well equipped and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The views from the bedroom windows were breathtaking and we enjoyed watching the sunsets each night. The early morning were so tranquil and the front garden/terrace was perfect for a morning cuppa and catching the early sunshine. The washer/dryer was also a godsend after a long day at the beach. We're already planning when we can next return!
