Luxury 18th Century fishermans cottage for eight with wood burning stove and enclosed garden. Fabulous views to the harbour at Craster

This beautiful 19th-century former fisherman’s stone cottage stands in an elevated position with commanding views of the harbour. One of a pair, and renovated to the highest of standards, Harbourway makes the ideal location for a family holiday or get together with friends.
Craster is a popular fishing village, noted particularly for its superb kippers - there is an on-site shop at the famous Craster curing sheds where fish can be bought, and there is a good seafood restaurant within the village. Situated on a 20-mile stretch of breathtaking coastline, which has been designated as one of the nation’s Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the coastal walk from Craster to the ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle is a must, and has been recently nominated as Britain’s most popular walk. Fishing, bird-watching and golf (the course at Foxton is reputed to be the best in Northumberland) are all available locally.
A short drive away lies Alnwick Castle - home to the Percy family, and the second largest inhabited castle in England. Featured in the Harry Potter films, this enchanting and magnificent castle is filled with an array of decorative and fine art. The famous Alnwick Garden, together with the largest treehouse in Europe and stunning water gardens, make a good day out for all the family. Embleton Bay is close by and is said to be one of the most romantic bays in England. Shop and pub 220 yards.

    We had a wonderful week at Harbourway over New Year. Upon arrival, the house was warm and welcoming. It has a real wow-factor for a rental property. Very tasteful christmas decorations were an extra special touch. The house is spacious and very well equipped. It is attractively decorated throughout. One of the bedrooms is on the ground floor, off the kitchen. The 2 en-suite bathrooms and the twin room are upstairs along with a house bathroom. Despite the cold weather the house quickly heated up, and there is a log burner for extra warmth. It was easy to feel relaxed and at home. Our hosts were very welcoming and on hand to deal with issues. The village itself is in a fabulous position on the Northumberland coast, and much of its charm is the remote location and its small size. As a result, there is no proper shop, but the smoke house and the cafe do sell essentials. There is a pub in the village. Alnwick is 10-15 minute drive away.

    Lovely house in a great village on the coast. However, house looks a little tired in places, maintenance not being kept up to tip top standard and BBQ desperately needs replaced. This could be a gold standard house and has been in the past but feel it’s not quite up to the premium price being asked. Would return to Craster and Northumberland for sure but attention to detail required to maintain high weekly summer premium.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for mentioning the bbq had been damaged. I am pleased to say we have now replaced it with a kettle type bbq which should be much easier to use. We do a full maintenance programme every winter which ensures the decor and equipment are in good order, as this cottage is very busy most of the year it is inevitable that some wear and tear happen during the busy months. If anything major happens I do ask guests to contact me immediately.
