I'd love you to Tweet your thoughts about this post nefamilyfun or leave a comment over on my Facebook fb. Craster Reach - A cottage from Sykes cottages in Northumberland. There are some things on my life bucket list that seem so far out of my reach that I wonder if I'll ever tick them off? African safari, soak in the Icelandic Springs, walk the streets of Hong Kong There is one thing on my list that is a little closer to home however and that was to stay in a cottage in Craster, Northumberland. Craster Reach Cottage was the perfect spot to enjoy some proper quality family time.
The cottage sleeps up to 6 people and has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms over 3 floors. There was more than enough room for our brood Love in craster spread out and relax. Firstly I will say that my 9 year old was ecstatic to find decent wifi that actually worked throughout the whole house so he could still watch netflix in his bedroom. We definitely earned extra brownie points when he discovered this. Not that the whole holiday was about watching tv mind!
We loved the selection of board games, DVDs and jigsaws and as it was December the cottage had been decorated for Christmas which was a lovely touch. Our kids are huge chess fans and watching them wake up every morning to run downstairs and start a new game really made a welcome change why don't they do this at home?? The oversized distressed wooden dining table really encouraged us all to eat together as a family every evening rather than a TV dinner or kids eating separately to us which happens more often than I'd care to admit at home.
Craster harbour was literally on our doorstep and we enjoyed our daily walks watching the fishermen and exploring the cove. More often than not we would have the whole place to ourselves and it was like our own little secret. The Jolly Fisherman pub is just a few doors away from Craster Reach Cottage and welcoming to both dogs and children.
We enjoyed a few drinks and light lunch after one of our afternoon walks over the weekend of our stay. Steve recommends the honey roast ham sandwiches. Fabulous homemade chips from The Jolly Fisherman. Our nights were spent drinking mulled wine us - not the kids! As we were only an Love in craster away from home and it was my birthday my parents kindly offered to have the kids overnight at their house one evening which meant that Steve and I could enjoy a drink or two and we had a break from getting up super early for the school run.
We started our child-free afternoon with a trip to The ers Arms in Newton-by-the -sea which is around a 10 minute drive from Craster. Although parking can be an issue sometimes, the food, service and ambience more than made up for it. Think real fires, twinkling lights, cocktails, real ales, very good local food and attentive service with a smile. We then headed back to Craster and spent the afternoon in The Jolly Fisherman by the fire listening to local tales, chatting to walkers after their trek to the castle and drinking lots of beer. It was heaven! I was disappointed that the pub don't serve food on a Monday evening and the restaurant at the Smokehouse was closed for winter meaning we had to head back to the cottage for dinner when I probably would have preferred to stay out.
Just a minor niggle though. The main talking point during our break was the simply stunning views. There isn't just one room with a view either, the cottage has been deed to make the most of it's spectacular position from EVERY room. You can look out to sea as you are loading the dishwasher, look over the sea, harbour and Dunstanburgh Castle with the sheep grazing in the surrounding fields from every bedroom and even take a shower looking out to coast should you desire. The best views were most definitely from the master suite on the first floor. Truly awesome.
Taken from the master suite. Our double bed was underneath a skylight and one Love in craster we climbed into bed and realised we hadn't closed the blinds. This was a lovely surprise though as it was a wonderfully clear evening and the dark skies meant that we could spot so many stars.
The sky was filled and it was definitely one of the best Northumberland dark skies experiences we've had to date! No photos but a memory I will always treasure. We decided to keep the skylight blinds open after that evening. As there aren't too many dining options in Craster, we decided to treat ourselves to a private chef in our cottage. He'll even do most of the washing up! We were served warming parsnip and ginger soup, locally sourced Cumin spiced lamb and winter berry cheesecake. It was such a treat and if you are staying in the North East I would definitely recommend booking Paul's Private Dining as a special treat.Playing Free Fire in Mobile \u0026 PC at Same Time
