Crab Cottage is located in the small village of Longhoughton, just a short drive away from Alnwick. Surrounded by stunning scenery and beautiful beaches, it's the perfect location to travel from and explore the beauty of Northumberland.

With cobbled streets lined with independent shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants, the market town of Alnwick has charisma and personality in abundance. If you’re a keen reader, head to the old railway station and you’ll find one of the UK’s largest second-hand bookshops. As night falls, venture to one of the lively inns to enjoy live music.

Alnwick also has some of the country’s top attractions including Alnwick Castle, which was the location for the famous Harry Potter film franchise. Discover a realm of adventure by taking on the Dragon Quest or complete broomstick training in the very spot where Harry Potter had his first flying lesson. Head to the Artisan Courtyard to have fun dressing up in medieval costumes and get a feel for 14th century life. You can also explore The Alnwick Garden where you’ll find 12 acres of magnificent gardens.

When staying at Crab Cottage, you can seize the day at award-winning Bamburgh Castle, the real Last Kingdom of Bebbanburg. Discover over 3000 years of incredible history, high adventure, exhilarating views and sea air.

The nearby pint-sized Holy Islands holds pubs and cafés a-plenty, coastal Lindisfarne Castle and the ancient Lindisfarne Priory.

The coastal village of Craster is also another popular local spot. Follow your nose to L. Robson & Sons kipper smokehouse and embark on a delicious visit to the Northumberland coast. The kippers here are a delicacy which is exported to food lovers across the country, and it is reputedly popular with the British Royal Family.
