Perfect for our weekend
Perfect space and location for our visit to Craster. We were walking the Macmillan Mighty Hike and needed a location that was easy access to Alnwick and Bamburgh. The accommodation was great and sitting in the garden the night before the walk was very relaxing. We managed to book into The Jolly Fisherman for a late dinner on the Saturday night. Highly recommended for both food and ambience so definitely pre book. This is a very comfortable holiday cottage and we will book again.

A nice peaceful getaway in a lovely location
The property is in a lovely location in the village with sea views and close to the playground and rocks, which the kids loved playing on. The kitchen was brand new and well equipped and the owner had kindly left some food and treats for us all. Apparently wi-fi and a new TV had just been installed but we didn't use either as the kids were happy being outdoors. The main bedroom is lovely and spacious and the smaller room is cosy for kids. As per previous reviews some of the decor is a little tired but that did not detract from the enjoyment of our stay. My only suggestion would be perhaps to install some darker blinds/curtains.....the sun was streaming in at 4.30am in June! We like to visit the area each year and would definitely come back to this cottage.

Lovely weekend!
Very cosy house close to the coast, seaview from lounge and bedroom, nice garden to sit in, excellent location for day trips - we are already planning our next stay!

5/5 Excellent

Clean, cosy and well-located
The cottage was cosy and welcoming, and the breakfast items and little toiletry samples were much appreciated. It was also spotlessly clean. I would say that it is showing slightly more signs of wear and tear than can be seen in the photos, but this did not affect our enjoyment of the cottage. The location is great, both for exploring Craster and the wider area. I'd definitely recommend the cottage to others.
