What could be finer for friends, families and four-legs than a seaside escape to the wild Northumbrian coast, staying at this exquisite gem set in the golden crown of Craster harbour? Famed as home of the kipper, Craster is a foodie’s paradise, with its two dog-friendly pubs, welcoming cafe and superb seafood restaurant. Dramatic Dunstanborough Castle (1.5 miles) is one of Britain’s most photographed ruins, accessible only on foot from Craster; a spooky ghost walk might lead you to the 16th-century knight, haunting the ruins. Enjoy a round on the windswept links golf course (4 miles) and run free on dog-friendly Craster Beach and Embleton Bay’s stretch of golden sands (4 miles). Snap up some superb local art from Craster’s renowned gallery.

Inside you’ll find a cosy and stylish interior, with a sleek design and loving touches. After wild Northumbrian adventures, gather in the open-plan living space for exquisite local seafood cooked in the bespoke kitchen. Drink in breathtaking ocean and harbour views through the large picture window and stay in for cosy nights with a glass of wine around the lounge’s wood burner. There’s also a utility room and WC on the ground floor. Upstairs, soak in a steaming shower or in the king-size bedroom’s en-suite copper bath, before settling down in one of the comfortable bedrooms; the single also has an additional trundle bed. Outside, you can dine alfresco on the patio, and star-gaze with a background of twinkling harbour lights.

Find more magnificent dog-friendly beaches at Longhoughton Steel, fantastic for rock pools and fishing, or sheltered Newton Haven, great for birdwatching, surfing and swimming (both 6 miles). Beadnall Bay (9.5 miles) is brilliant for bracing coastal walks, with its curving sands and grassy dunes, and Seahouses has two beautiful beaches. Take a boat trip to the fabulous Farne Islands to spot puffins, seals, porpoises, dolphins and whales. Alnmouth village and beach are also worth a visit for a spot of ball or stick chasing (9 miles).

I really loved the cottage - the position is fabulous (facing straight on the harbour), though public, rightly drawing admiring glances from the many passers by! I hardly used the car, walking north and south along glorious coastline and being within easy reach of several great places to eat and drink.

This old traditional fisherman hut is very modern inside but is not the biggest and has no garden apart from the car parking area. Excellent location by the harbour and very close to the local restaurant, cafes and the famous smokery. Great views towards the harbour and for people watching since walkers are passing by the windows all the time.
