Many holiday cottages to discover!
There's a good reason that cottage holidays are on the rise - they're simply the most fun and best value holidays in the UK. The vast majority of our self-catering properties are cottages in rural towns and villages, but we do have some city based properties, many of which are apartments.
Cottage owners expect you to leave the property in the same condition as you found it - clean and tidy - and will almost always provide cleaning materials for you. Pet-friendly cottages in Craster are on the rise however we do recommend that you ask in advance - unless it's stated on the booking details. Our great value holiday cottages to rent in Craster are sometimes available for rent for a weekend, week, fortnight, two weeks or even longer.
Children love to get out of the cottage (not because the cottages aren't great, but because its fun to play outside!) and this is a great benefit of staying in a country cottage. Great weather can never be guaranteed for every day, and there's obviously a chance of a downpour.
If the rainclouds arrive it may be a good idea to stay inside and get out a pack of cards or an old fashioned board game. If there's a TV in the property then you can sit around a watch re-runs of quiz shows, comedies and whatever else is on.
Or you can just embrace the weather and get out there in a raincoat, splash about, and pretend that you really are still young.
Before you book that 16th Century thatched roof cottage with low ceilings, you may want to ask the tallest people in your group/family whether the olde worlds charm outweighs the pain of bumping heads on beams. Do you need twin beds or double beds, can the kids share a room, will your friends all want separate bedrooms?
Most dog owners like to take their four legged friends away with them on trips to Craster. If the description of the Craster cottage does not indicate that its pet friendly, please contact the owner before confirming the booking.
Don't forget to make the most of your Northumberland holiday - none of us get enough of them!
Families, Friends and More
The fact that guests are on holiday in Craster in a rental home together, sometimes with three generations in larger rental holiday homes, brings a much different atmosphere to the cottage break or holiday. We've prepared a handy shortlist of things to remember for your holiday with kids, just to help the whole experience go well.
Its always a good idea to take swim suits even if you don't expect to be near a beach because you may well find a local swimming pool can be great fun. If the children are really young, don't forget to take nappies and / or a potty as you may find it harder to buy these at your destination.
And last, but not least, make sure you take your camera to capture the magic of a great fun family holiday before the kids grow up and start their own families!
