Welcome to Craster Tower Apartment

This fabulous apartment occupies the entire top floor of historic Craster Tower, a superbly preserved Grade 2* country house dating from the fifteenth century, built around a 14th century Pele Tower. Recently totally refurbished to the highest standard, the apartment provides elegantly decorated and furnished accommodation, with stunning views on all sides.

The rooms are exceptionally spacious, retaining many of the original features including decorative coving, ornate stone and marble fireplaces and a fine Venetian chandelier suspended from the ceiling in the drawing room.The apartment has its own front door, giving access to a large garden area with garden furniture, barbecue and the use of a tennis court and trampoline.

With a choice of 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 2 sitting rooms there is plenty of room for everyone. A well-equipped utility room on the ground floor provides every facility for making the most of all the beautiful area offers.

The picturesque fishing village of Craster is a short walk down a footpath through woods and fields. The tiny horseshoe shaped harbour was built to commemorate a member of the Craster family, which has been associated with the area since the early 12th century. The fishing industry has for centuries been the mainstay of the village economy. Nowadays crabs and lobsters are the chief catch. The smokehouse, run by the Robson family since 1905, is at the heart of the village. This is where the herring are smoked to produce the renowned Craster kippers.

There are exhilarating coastal walks passing some dramatic scenery, including one along to the ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle. Alnwick Castle and Gardens 7 miles. Warkworth Castle, Bamburgh Castle, Holy Island, the Farne Islands and the Cheviot Hills are all within easy reach. Superb beaches - sand-yachting at Bamburgh, jet-skiing at Beadnell and castle-building at Embleton! Outstanding opportunities for ramblers and bird watchers. There are 5 golf courses within 20 minutes.
