Overview

Drive past Craster's picturesque harbour and take a right at the village pub. A row of quaint whinstone cottages runs up the hill, but sneak behind them, into the driveway of Red Herring, and you'll find a spacious haven of contemporary design within a 200 year old shell - not quite what you'd be expecting.

Overview
The designer owners have immersed themselves in the character of this former school house, to bring it back to life, acknowledging original features but adding their own style print to meet their exacting demands for a holiday home. The interior remodelling reflects their awareness of light and space and their love of Craster and all things coastal. Flexible bed arrangements in the second bedroom make this house suitable for both couples or a family with children, with a log burner adding all year round appeal.

You’ll find a hint of the Nordic in Red Herring, with carefully chosen colours, unique contemporary bespoke furniture pieces handcrafted from locally sourced timber such as sycamore and elm, and the odd upcycled vintage item too.

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.

RED HERRING IS A GOLD RETREAT WITH A 4 STAR CHILD FRIENDLY RATING

It is suitable for children of all ages and includes an enclosed patio garden, flexible sleeping arrangements and is located just a short walk from the harbour for playing in the sand at low tide and the coast for rockpooling.
