Coastguard’s Cottage


A lovely old terraced cottage with original features offering good sized accommodation for up to eight guests and welcoming to dogs. It offers open-plan living accommodation, a sun porch and a garden great for playing or sitting and watching the view over the harbour below.

The cottage sits in a quiet back street but is just a short walk from Craster’s Jolly Fisherman pub, cafe, art gallery and harbour.

Children at Coastguard’s Cottage  4-Star Child Rating   

Lovely garden with play equipment to suit children of all ages.

This garden is not visible from the house or fully enclosed so just falls short of our 5 starfish rating. Nevertheless excellent facilities for children. Travel cot (please bring your own cot linen) and highchair available on request.


Ideal for families with children who will appreciate the great garden. With two double bedrooms, the Coastguards Cottage also works well for two couples.

Booked with the Harbour Master’s House, which is just a 30 second walk away, the two cottages will work well for two families holidaying together.


Full central heating with logburner in the living room.

Please note: Whilst we take great care to represent our properties and their facilities as accurately as possible, the décor, furnishings and facilities shown in images and video tours may occasionally be subject to minor change.

Candid Comments

A short walk to the seafront but no sandy beach at Craster, just a spectacular rocky coastline with coastal footpath.

Parking at Coastguard’s is adequate for one car (but not a wide car) outside the house with parking for a second car available at the top of the lane, although this isn’t guaranteed. If you’re precious about your car, this may not suit you.

The slightly rough edges to some of the renovation works adds character, but may annoy those with a penchant for perfect finishes.
Mobile reception is almost impossible in Craster but there is a landline. The WiFi connection here can be slow, erratic and sometimes non-existent (we’ve tried everything to improve the speed!) Please be aware of this if you are relying on internet access.

Guest Reviews

Loved the quiet location, the characterful touches around the house and most of all, the hidden garden

We spent most evenings at the top of the garden admiring the view and drinking wine - perfect holiday!

Just wanted to thank you and your team for another great holiday in one of your lovely properties, we think coastguards is our favourite so far.
