Description

St Bede is an enchanting cottage with a spiral staircase leading to the galleried double bed. Situated on the beautiful heritage coastal route only 2 miles from Craster, which is famous for its smoked kippers and the glorious walk to Dunstanburgh Castle. Howick Hall Gardens are nearby and well worth a visit, with banks of rhododendrons, camellias and magnolias in the spring. A visit to Holy Island, which is reached via a tidal causeway and famous for the Lindisfarne Gospels, is a must, and not forgetting the pretty village of Bamburgh with its majestic castle overlooking the wide sandy beach. Alnwick Castle and Gardens, with its spectacular grand cascade waterfall, are 4 miles away, and walking, sandy beaches, fishing, golf, surfing and cycling are close by. A former retreat run by nuns, The Old Mill (ref 25579) is ideal for families and groups of friends, with plenty of quirky living space both inside and outside making it a cosy retreat, with logs for the open fires and wood burners included. St Cuthbert’s (ref 25580) and St Bede (ref 25581) are perfect bases for couples, with some privacy in the small courtyards. Beach 2 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

St Bede can be booked together with The Old Mill (25579) and St Cuthbert’s (25580) to accommodate up to 18 guests with seating available in the dining room of The Old Mill for all guests.

About the local area

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.
