Cottage was well situated in Dunstan in a small row. It was a very quiet area despite having a pub on the corner there was no noise. The pub was excellent serving very good food which we would recommend. It was easy to walk into Craster and there were lots of walks available locally. The Stables Garden Centre near the Craster arch serves very good Read morelunchtime snacks and great cakes. It also has frozen meals and milk for sale.. We really enjoyed our week at Beech cottage.

.....a pretty cottage and perfect for 2 adults and Daisy our dog loved it too. It is a short and delightful walk from Craster and well- situated for coastal walks and visits to so many places in that part of Northumbria. We had a good week!

Superb location. The space is small and comfortable for two, but somewhat cramped for four. Excellent location near Crasher with stunning coastline nearby and easy access to beaches, coastal walks and many other attractions.

This cottage was perfect for our holiday in a quiet setting close to Craster.The picture of the main living room makes it appear larger than it is but it was still fine for our needs.
