Dunstan Village, Craster, NE66 3TF

Located only one mile from Craster and the sea, our two spacious and comfortable cottages offer a perfect base for your holiday on the Northumberland 'Heritage' Coast.

Dunstanburgh View is a two bedroom cottage that sleeps up to four persons. For 2018, we have redesigned the kitchen layout and added beautiful tiles to complete the look. As well as the usual appliances, the well equipped kitchen, which looks out onto the rear garden, has a washer/dryer, microwave and DAB radio. Your kitchen has a dining area for you to enjoy your meals. The cosy sitting room now boasts a sturdy log burner to keep guests toasty and warm whatever the weather! Your TV has Freeview and a DVD player is available. A BT hub provides your WiFi and internet access. The Snug Room now also has a TV/Freeview/DVD player with a comfortable sofa and chair - ideal for the kids to use for their own Playstation/X-box/DVDs or just a quiet room for a read or a snooze. The family bathroom is on the ground floor. This comprises of a washbasin, toilet and bath with overhead shower. A shaver point is also available in the bathroom. Upstairs there is a double and a twin bedroom, both with built in wardrobe space. From the twin bedroom and the landing windows, you have views of the coastline, heughs and Dunstanburgh Castle in the distance. There is private, off-road parking for your car. A small sunporch which is attached to the kitchen is lovely even on a cooler day, as it is west facing and catches the sun all day. It's also an ideal place to leave sandy shoes.

Seascape is a generous three bedroomed cottage which can sleep up to 6 guests.The large sitting room, with double aspect windows, has a log burner to keep you lovely and warm and as in Dunstanburgh View, gas central heating is available throughout the house. The TV has Freeview and a DVD player is also available. A BT hub provides your WiFi & internet access. The kitchen, again with double aspect windows, is fully equipped and has a dishwasher and DAB radio along with the usual appliances (washer, tumble dryer, fridge freezer and microwave). Your kitchen has an ample dining area for you to enjoy your meals. A ground floor WC is included in this cottage, as is a small sun porch to the rear.

Upstairs, there are three bedrooms - one twin and two doubles. The spacious, first floor hallway offers views which look out towards the heughs, coastline and Dunstanburgh Castle in the distance. The family bathroom is also on this floor and comprises of a bath, a separate shower enclosure, washbasin and toilet. A shaver point is also available.

There is a garage attached to the cottage which can be used as storage for any cycles, walking gear etc. There is ample car parking, some off road.

We now provide lovely Christy bath sheets and hand towels for your use, so hopefully that will leave more space in your suitcase! A generous welcome pack on arrival includes wine, homemade marmalade, homemade shortbread and a few basics (semi skimmed milk, eggs etc).

A travel cot and a highchair are both available and should be requested on booking please. Your first basket of logs is free and after that, it is £5.00 per basket and will be delivered to your door on request. Gas central heating provides extra warmth should you prefer not to use the log burner.

We are unable to accommodate pets in either cottage and both cottages are No Smoking properties

The Cottage Inn in Dunstan is well within walking distance. The Jolly Fisherman and Craster Seafood restaurant are both in Craster and although slightly further at around one mile away, are still within walking distance should you prefer to eat out in the evening. The cottages are ideally situated for discovering the Heritage coast with its unspoilt beaches, Castles and Northumberland National Park. The Coastal path is easily accessible and reached by a variety of footpaths over the heughs. Dunstanburgh Castle is within walking distance, as is the fishing village of Craster where a local pub offers its famous Crab soup (and Internet access!).
