Once the Georgian stables for the adjacent hall, Stable Cottage is a charming grade II listed cottage less than a mile from the delightful fishing village of Craster in Northumberland, with a bridleway to the wonderful sandy beach at Embleton Bay, with its adjoining golf course. A truly wonderful setting for exploring the nearby castles, beaches, gardens and islands of this stunning part of the country.
The house is situated in the heart of the countryside, just under a mile from the harbour village of Craster and a mile or so north along a pretty bridleway to the beautiful beach at Embleton Bay. There’s a host of historical and recreational sites to visit in the vicinity, marvellous beaches and coastal walks, as well as visits to local castles, gardens and islands. Something for everyone in the group. Please note Stable Cottage is opposite Hemmel House (sleeps 6) and Dunstan Hall (sleeps 18). Properties can be booked in combination for a larger group of guests and sleep 29 in total.
If you can drag yourself away from the beautiful setting in which you’ll be staying, there’s no shortage of places to go and things to see in the vicinity. You’re based just one mile from the sea and Craster harbour, from where the beautiful coastline stretches north to Dunstanburgh, Embleton, Beadnell and Bamburgh, and to the south following the sea as far as Alnmouth. Within a 40 minute drive you can find yourself at no less than six castles, and there are also some beautiful gardens nearby, not least the famous Alnwick Gardens. For the foodies amongst you, there are several renowned places to eat and drink, and in fact Craster itself is world famous for its kippers! Biking, watersports, hiking, golfing, fishing, bird watching - all these activities are available locally.
