Overview

Gardeners can leave their fork and trowel behind and enjoy a relaxing stay in the midst of some of Craster's gardening history. The Old Gardener's, part of a small row of cottages, dates back to the late 19th Century and was the former home of the gardener to the nearby historic Craster Tower.

Overview
A truly classic cottage with period features and Farrow and Ball colours, you can catch the sun all day long from the oasis-like front and rear enclosed gardens with their carefully tended flowers and plants, or watch the world go by from the conservatory entrance to the cottage. There is an innate sense of Englishness to The Old Gardener’s, from its decadent roll top bath and large antique bed, to the Belfast sink in the kitchen and the log burning stove in the lounge. The word homely does not do this place justice. It is timeless, enchanting and well-loved. An English garden cottage by the sea.

Location
Set in the small village of Dunstan, just outside of Craster. A short walk from The Cottage Inn pub and a couple of hundred metres from another Coastal Retreat The Old Ale House. The cottage enjoys a quiet location within 15 minute's walk via a pathway to the sea at Craster and its village with eateries, an art gallery and Robson's smokery. There you'll also find the start of the walk to Dunstanburgh Castle and the sandy shores of Embleton Bay beyond.

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.

THE OLD GARDENER'S IS A BRONZE RETREAT WITH A 4 STAR CHILD FRIENDLY RATING

It is suitable for children of all ages and includes two enclosed gravelled gardens.
