With full, uninterrupted views of Craster harbour and the North Sea from all front windows, Fisherman's Cottage provides a tranquil holiday setting with an idyllic garden embedded into the harbour walls, affording breath-taking views. This mid-terraced stone cottage has been owned by the same family for over 100 years and improvements have been made over time so that it now offers comfortable accommodation for 6 people over 3 floors.

Situated in the centre of this thriving coastal village the cottage has a rear grassed garden and both on and off road parking, a must in the height of the season. Just over the road from the front door, towards the harbour, is a delightful small enclosed garden with bench seat, wooden table and chairs - so tempting to sit out with a cup of tea, the newspapers and relax as the harbour activity captivates you!

Craster, steeped in local tradition and centred on the harbour, is now a thriving tourist spot with artist's gallery, enviable food at The Jolly Fisherman Inn and the hugely popular working smoke house producing Robson's Craster Kippers! The Coastal Path leads from the heart of Craster northward across the grassed shoreline towards Dunstanburgh Castle and then on to the sandy beaches at Embleton, Newton by The Sea and northwards to Beadnell and beyond.
