Find cottages in CrasterVisit Craster

This pretty fishing village is situated on the beautiful Northumberland coast and is known for its traditionally smoked kippers.

Just a short walk along this stunning coastline and within easy reach of many Craster holiday cottages, is Dunstanburgh Castle, now only a ruin but in its day one of the biggest in England. This lovely coastal walk can be enjoyed by all ages and follows a six mile circular route, covering the spectacular coast and the bracken and heather covered slopes of The Heughs.

Head inland and you'll find Alnwick (pronounced 'Annick'). The castle there is not only featured in the Harry Potter films but also the original Blackadder TV comedy. Here you'll find family friendly attractions such the intriguingly named Poison Garden and more appetisingly, a spectacular Treehouse Restaurant.

Visit Craster's one remaining smokehouse, the century-old L. Robson & Sons where the kippers and smoked salmon are prepared in the traditional method of oak smoking, and can be bought at the shop on site or locally. Drop into the Jolly Fisherman pub across the road for these delicacies and more, with the added benefit of superb panoramic views across the sea, not to mention a welcome drink. If fish isn't your thing, you could always try the 'stottie-cake' pizza – the local name for a tea cake.

It's a delightful spot to visit, start searching now for Craster cottages.
