Following the overwhelming popularity of Coastal Retreat, Craster Rocks, its owners could not resist using the adjacent land to build Craster Waves. In similar architectural style to Craster Rocks, but with the addition of very 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

Prices and Availability
In the enviable location of being right at the entrance to Dunstanburgh Castle where a private gate takes National Trust visitors along the 1/2 mile or so path to the ruin itself. All this, just metres from the sea and the rockpools.
A 5 minute walk will take you into the village of Craster with the Jolly Fisherman pub, the Mick Oxley art gallery, The Shoreline cafe (lovely homemade cake and frothy capuccinos) and the famous kipper smoke house with fish restaurant.

Arrival: 4pm ( 3pm from Nov-March)
Ideal for a couple or small family. Can be booked with neighbouring Craster Rocks to accommodate up to 10 guests together. Remember to bring your National Trust or English Heritage card for free entry into Dunstanburgh Castle and grounds
Attaining our own 4 starfish rating, Craster Waves welcomes children. We can provide all the usual array of baby equipment -travel cot (please bring your own cot linen), highchair, stairgate -and the garden to the rear of the property has a few pieces of toddler play equipment. The rocks close by make a great rock pooling paradise (with adult supervision)
There is no gas in Craster village, but there is full oil central heating and a logburner in the lounge.
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 next 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!
Wifi 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.
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 will return later in the year
Superb views and location - Dunstanburgh Castle to one side and great Jolly Fisherman pub to the other!
