This cottage was perfect for our holiday in a quiet setting close to Craster.The picture of the main living room makes it appear larger than it is but it was still fine for our needs.

A very cosy cottage, most suitable for a couple but a little small for a family in the downstairs space. No mention made about the lack of a back garden and very little front garden!!!!!!!!

Reviewed by Maggie 10th May 2019

An ideal location to explore Northumbria. Walking distance of the coastal path and the quaint harbour of Craster. Clean, with all the amenities needed. An excellent location for a pub serving good pub food. The cottage is described as snug but it is small. I was pleased we were only a couple.
