Craster Waves




Upside down living and retro styling, with fifties flourishes and modern luxury elements where it matters, Craster Waves is one of the most popular pads in our collection due to its staggering sea views from its position overlooking Craster's rocky shoreline. Adjacent to our Craster Rocks Retreat, and from the same owners, it also benefits from being at the start of the walk along the coastline to the iconic ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle on the headland.

Following the overwhelming popularity of our Craster Rocks Retreat, the owners could not resist using the adjacent land to build Craster Waves. In similar architectural style to Craster Rocks, but with the addition of contemporary style features such as a glazed balcony and fully opening bi-fold doors, the building of this cottage combines with a redesign of the outside space of both cottages, to bring the whole site up to date with a well-planned landscaping scheme to suit the needs of discerning holidaymakers.

The owners love all things retro and have reflected this throughout, having spent time sourcing furniture and features in this style to complete the interior scheme. The first floor open plan living space maximises the superb sea views from this spot, and the contemporary designer finish, all with a retro feel, will more than live up to this sought after location. Step out onto the glazed balcony where you can indulge in serious wave watching, or enjoy the scene from the comfort of the sofa by the log burning stove.

Arrival: 4pm (3pm from Nov-March)

We're thinking hard! Perhaps the bedrooms are a touch on the small side. It's a compact house but well designed. Being so near to the sea, the windows sometimes get covered in a fine layer of salt and birds nest in the eaves. To reach the drive of the house it is necessary to drive over some grass. This can sometimes get a bit muddy. If you have a precious low-slung car, you may not like this!
Wi-Fi access is sometimes a bit poor, slow and intermittent. This is BT and not the cottage. Please be aware of this if you are relying on internet access. Please note that Craster has a rocky coastline, no sandy beaches here.


All of our Retreats are non-smoking.

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.


Terms and Conditions
In the enviable location of being right at the start of the half mile walk across National Trust land to Dunstanburgh Castle along the rocky shoreline and central to Craster village. Add to this, the proximity of the sea - just metres away - and the rock pools and you have a perfect coastal getaway with everything on your doorstep.
A five-minute walk will take you to Craster's Jolly Fisherman pub, the Mick Oxley art gallery, The Shoreline Café and the famous Robson's Smokery for Craster kippers to takeaway or enjoyed at its seafood restaurant.
For further information on the area, see our Craster section.

Reviews and Ratings
Our cottages are graded according to how stylish they are and how welcoming they are to children.

To assist you in finding the perfect place to stay, we have awarded our cottages a Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum style rating. This is based on our own standards and the award is given according to a mixture of criteria - location, aesthetic appeal, standard of luxury, facilities offered and style factors.
For example, a Platinum award goes to our most stylish and all round exclusive properties and a Bronze award may go to a cottage that may be a little less refined in places but still meets the high standards necessary to fit into the collection.


Craster Waves is very child-friendly. The garden to the rear of the property has a few pieces of toddler play equipment and the rocks close by make a great rock pooling paradise (with adult supervision).

Superb views and location - Dunstanburgh Castle to one side and great Jolly Fisherman pub to the other!

We've stayed at Craster Rocks a couple of times and chose this one as we were holidaying as a couple this time. It's been a great holiday and we will return later in the year.

This is our second time we have stayed here. Its so special being on the coastal path and on the edge of Craster. We were looking forward to the holiday so much given the cirumstances and we had a lovely relaxing time.
