Within walking distance of Craster village, this spacious holiday home combines fun, contemporary, classic and vintage interior design styles, set within an ambience of gorgeously curated comfort. The house showcases items of such individual character and provenance, meticulously brought together by the owner, as she created this fabulous coastal getaway. Set down a private drive, with a large private garden, this house of colour provides all the facilities and oodles of space needed for a congregation of the generations, a meeting of old friends, or whatever you want it to be.

With five bedrooms and three bathrooms, all with a different theme and character, and lots of sitting, chatting and eating spaces, coupled with thoughtful personal touches, you'll have to agree that the designer owner has very much left her stamp on this amazing house. Some creative pairing of luxurious french velvet beds with fabulous vintage finds and ultra contemporary furniture pieces dotted throughout the house, set the design tone. Guests will love to marvel at the quirky features and the bold use of colour. The safe enclosed garden will delight all ages with seating and a large outdoor fire. Dogs are very welcome to stay, there is no limit on the number of dogs you can bring with you (please note - you will need to pay an additional pet fee and you must not leave dogs unattended in the property).The nearest pub is just over the road, and the village of Craster and the sea lie within a 10-15 minute walk. You can see the sea over the village rooftops from some of the bedrooms.

This house is a family owned holiday home and as such is unsuitable for holding large parties. Small gatherings are, of course, welcome but no ‘open house’ please. Tents, hot tubs and mobile homes on the property are not permitted.


Clean well equipped house ideal for a family get together. We couldn't have asked for it to be better equipped. We did struggle with the Aga because none of us were used to one. There didn't seem to be any instructions but just googled it. Very quiet and private property.

Mrs Wendy C,

Craster Colours was everything and then some!

Miss Hayley S,

Had a great time and really loved the house.

Mrs A S,

fantastic family holiday

Mr Michael B,

Wonderful unusual house extremely comfortable with brilliant garden and lots of thoughtful extra touches. Lots is space for 12 people. Short walk to Craster. Magnificent area to explore. Quiet and private house and grounds.

Mrs Catherine H,

Disappointing that when I called about a blocked toilet nobody responded. But the house was lovely and very fresh and clean

Ms Freya J,

He house was beautifully comfortable and full of thoughtful touches

Mrs Louise B,

House very good, spacious and very well equipped on the whole. We were there for a family Christmas and it was excellent, the lovely garden would be great in the Summer. However, there was nowhere to put clothes for four people in the family room, had to leave in cases, and couples could have done with bigger beds - doubles not really big enough. Otherwise excellent.

Mrs Hilary F,

Craster colours is amazing, lots of space and there was 9 of us and 4 dogs. Had everything you needed including some extras. Would highly recommend this property!

Mr Keith L,

Excellent, well equipped accomation, perfect for exploring the surrounding areas

Mrs Amanda B,

Craster colours is exactly as it is described on your website. There was plenty of space for 3 generations to spend a week together. It truly was a home from home and had everything we needed and more. Thanks for an amazing break!

Mrs Ann S,

The house was perfect for our family get together 10 adults 2 children an infant and 4 dogs. It was very well equipped and the outside space was great. Good location. It was very comfortable and homely meaning everyone felt at ease. All the bedrooms were spacious the bathrooms too. The amazing dining/kitchen was perfect for us all to eat together - only drawback was the aga that was gorgeous but slightly daunting for those who are not used to aga cooking however we managed. The Cottage Inn a few yards away was welcoming and accommodated us all including the dogs for a lovely lunch. We all agreed we’d love a return visit.

This property exceeded our expectations. Amazing décor, quirky and interesting not to mention colourful! So much space for us all to spread out and do our own thing, or come together as a family. The Aga takes a little getting used to. Loved every minute of our stay.

Amazing house! We've stayed in many places in the area and this is by far the most fun and enjoyable one we've been to. Very reluctant to leave and already planning our return!

Past Customer,

Thanks for sharing your house with us. The whole family had a wonderful weekend. Great to have the large rooms to spread ourselves out. The house is very well equipped and private.

Past Customer,


Set down a private driveway in the middle of the village of Dunstan, just a short walk from the sea and the village of Craster where you'll find a good food pub, a seafood restaurant, art gallery and coffee shop based around the picturesque harbour and the magnificent vista of Dunstanburgh Castle. The house has parking for several cars and there are numerous walks from the doorstep, not just the walk to the village pub a few metres away!
