The fishing village of Craster lies nestled on the stunning Northumbrian coastline and is fortunate to have direct access to the Northumbrian Coastal path, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). http://www.northumberlandcoastpath.org
Across the harbour The Jolly Fisherman pub, famous for its crab sandwiches and excellent menu, plays host to walkers and locals alike. Muddy boots and dogs are welcome in the bar., where open log fires crackle as you feast upon your hearty food in the winter time. For the more discerning diner, a restaurant with a view at the rear of the pub comes highly recommended ; booking is almost always necessary. http://www.thejollyfishermancraster.co.uk/
Harbour Cottage is one of Craster’s original fishermen’s cottages, built at the same time as the harbour walls and is a real part of the village’s history.
To the front of the cottage across the small road, is a private terrace. The perfect spot for morning coffee and bacon rolls, afternoon tea and scones, or spend a lazy day barbecuing and relaxing while the tide comes in and the world goes by.
It can be difficult to tear yourself away for a day out when sitting here offers such an idyllic vista!
If a peaceful relaxing break is required Harbour Cottage can offer just this, and for the more adventurous, the area boasts some of the UK’s finest castles, coastline, beaches, pubs and restaurants, not to mention boat trips, water sports and golf.
Situated just ten minutes from Alnwick and the A1, Craster is easy to drive to, but once there, you’ll feel as though you have escaped the hustle and bustle of normal life and are in your own little bit of heaven...
