Here are some reviews from our guests.


Thank you, Michael & Fiona, for your warm welcome and a wonderful week with wonderful weather.  We greatly enjoyed the generous space, all the facilities, elegant furniture & decorations and all sorts of thoughtful touches, not forgetting the table-top football.


Our four-year-old greatly enjoyed the trampoline and the playroom which kept them quiet and occupied for ages.


Quote of the week "Wow! This is the best house I’ve ever been in".

This is how I live in my other life, in a medieval tower, with beautiful furniture and decor, sunshine every day - even rain is bearable when the surroundings are as heavenly and evocative as these.  We have had an extremely restful and contemplative week and hope to return as and when life allows.

Dr Turner, Durham, March 2018

Thank you very much for a wonderful weekend. The place is amazing! I enjoyed learning about the family history and seeing all the portraits. We loved having the chance to play a grand piano. We'll be recommending this wonderful place to our friends and hope to be back ourselves one day.

Diane Wilkinson/Gayle Beveridge, Edinburgh, January 2018

Thank you for a wonderful stay - we are able to bring together 8 artists of black heritage and dance, unite, discuss, share and rest!! Thank you for such a warm welcome and the apartment was perfect for people to socialise when they wanted and have down time too. We loved gathering in the kitchen or round the fire.  Laughter filled each room. Thank you - we hope to be able to stay again.

Alexandrina, London, December 2017

Great thanks to Fiona and Michael for their hospitality.  They put out extra toys for the kids to make them feel comfortable and gave us advice on what to visit and where to eat, so thanks for the perfect days we spent in the Craster Tower.

We were delighted to return for a very happy and very comfortable stay in this splendidly adapted Pele Tower.

A superb house - a fabulous location.  A lovely warm welcome and obliging owners - couldn't ask for any better!  Thank you for providing such a great holiday destination.  We'll be back! x

The McTighes, Sheffield, June 2017

Had a fantastic time on our Catherine Cookson weekend.  Thank you for allowing us to share your beautiful home.

MIller Girls, Hull - London - Cheshire, November 2016

We have had an amazing time again, here in Craster.  Last year staying in the Stables was nice, but the apartment is even nicer.  We hope to come again soon as we thoroughly enjoyed out time here.  Thank you x
