Many holiday cottages to discover!
In Craster, whatever time of year, and whoever you are with, we have a few suggestions for essentials to take along. Preparing for a little rain is always a good plan. An umbrella and an anorak or rain coat can get everyone smiling even on the worse days.
We always make sure we take a good book. There's always plenty of downtime on a cottage holiday, and so it's a great time to catch up on a read. And then we always make sure we have good supplies with us when we arrive so that we can sit down and have a cup of coffee and perhaps a piece of cake before we start that boring unpacking! We have stayed in many types of cottage, and we've decided we like both traditional and modern - it just depends on where we're going.
Wherever you stay in Craster there's usually a good range of fun to be had outdoors - from the most energetic sports to the most relaxing pastimes. You can never truly rely on the weather in Craster Northumberland or frankly anywhere in the UK.
We live in a country where we're no stranger to rain and preparing for the inevitable downpour is always a good idea. With wi-fi more and more common (but don't expect urban speeds) you could even download a few great tv shows or games.
Whatever you decide, we're sure it will be a memorable part of your cottage holiday in Craster.
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?
If you have a dog, you may like to bring him or her to Craster with you. If the description of the Craster cottage does not indicate that its pet friendly, please contact the owner before confirming the booking.
Have a great holiday, wherever you stay. Hopefully it will be in a Northumberland cottage found through us!
Families, Friends and More
Self-catering holidays can be the most fun in Craster. No pressure from the owner to eat meals at specific times, when you are self-catering the food is ready when you want it to be ready.
You can decide what food and drink you want to consume, and you can choose when to sit down and eat it... or even stand up and eat it! For many people the idea of a Craster cottage holiday allows them to relax, take long rambling walks and stop off at a country pub for a pint and a ploughman's lunch.
But you may want to get out and burn some energy on bikes, climb a hill or mountain, or even try canoeing. Whatever you choose, please take the right clothing and equipment with you.
