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.
