Local Area

Craster lies almost halfway along the Heritage Coast – a twenty mile stretch of breathtaking coastline designated as one of the nation’s ‘Areas of Outstanding Beauty’. The original part of the village curves around the harbour as Craster was once renowned as a haven for the local boats which fished for herring in the North Sea. Now it is an anchorage for boats catching crabs and lobsters and for the occasional pleasure craft.

Both cottages are located close to the harbour in the heart of the village and each carry a uniqueness which is part of the history of Craster. Each cottage lies close to the renowned Mick Oxley Art Gallery, the highly rated Jolly Fisherman pub and the Shoreline cafe.

Along the coast are castles, beaches, cliffs and harbours while inland you have a wealth of heritage to discover at Alnwick Castle & Gardens and the Northumberland National Park to name just two.
