Grey Croft Cottage
4 bedrooms, sleeps 8

This charming stone-built property is ideal for an enjoyable family holiday by the coast, with an assortment of exciting activities and attractions available nearby.

Grey Croft is a handsome stone-built detached house situated in the welcoming village of Christon Bank. On the ground floor there are two large living rooms, both with cosy gas fires, a kitchen/dining room and one bathroom. With four double bedrooms on the first floor along with a shower room, Grey Croft is ideal for family gatherings. Christon Bank is located only 2 miles inland from the picturesque coastal village of Embleton where there are excellent local facilities and a glorious stretch of golden sandy beach. Craster, renowned for its world famous kippers, is 5 miles away and Beadnell Bay, a popular destination for water sports enthusiasts, is only 6 miles up the seashore.

A further 2 miles up the coastline is the traditional fishing port of Seahouses where boat trips to the nearby Farne Islands, famous for its bird sanctuaries and seal colony, depart regularly from its harbour. Here there are several charming tea rooms, quaint pubs and shops and many other amenities available including horse riding, fishing and golf on the links. Just a few miles inland is the bustling market town of Alnwick, with its dramatic castle, the location used for Harry Potter’s Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Enjoy a trip to Alnwick Garden, a spectacular interpretation of a formal garden with The Grand Cascade, a striking waterfall feature, and a restaurant within the largest tree house in Europe! Grey Croft is an excellent choice for those seeking family sized accommodation, ideally situated to explore the 20 miles of beautiful Northumberland Heritage Coastline, designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
