Craster & Embleton Area

Home to the famous Craster Kipper...

Craster is a small fishing village on the Northumberland coast and famous as the home of the Craster Kipper, a smoked fish exported to food lovers across the country. It has a small and attractive harbour and offers a view northwards along the rocky shore to the spectacular ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle.

Dramatic Dunstanburgh Castle was built at a time when relations between King Edward II and his most powerful baron, Earl Thomas of Lancaster, had become openly hostile. Lancaster began the fortress in 1313, and the latest archaeological research carried out by English Heritage indicates that he built it on a far grander scale than was hitherto recognised, perhaps more as a symbol of his opposition to the king than as a military stronghold.

This area is very popular with walkers and there are an abundance of footpaths to explore. The third stage of the Northumberland coastal path route starts in the village, heading north past the dramatic ruins of windswept Dunstanburgh Castle and onto the golden sands of Embleton Bay, keeping a lookout for the famous 'Andra Barton Rock'. Past the beach huts and on to picturesque Low Newton by the Sea, with it's village square and the Ship Inn, a perfect place to stop for well earned food and refreshments. Then to the vast expanse of Beadnell Bay and the village of Beadnell beyond, finally ending-up in the bustling holiday town of Seahouses, gateway to the Farne Islands.

Three miles up the coast from Craster is the village of Embleton, about half-a-mile from the beautiful bay which carries its name. The sandy beach is backed by dunes where a variety of flowers bloom: bluebells, cowslips, burnet roses and, to give it its common name, bloody cranesbill, amongst others.

Golfers can enjoy a good 18-hole links golf course overlooking the beautiful Embleton Bay.
