About Michael and Fyona Robson

We have been providing self catering accommodation in Craster for over 25 years. We live in the village with our two golden retrievers. Michael ,being a Craster local, has an extensive knowledge of the area.

Why Michael and Fyona Robson chose Northumberland

Rock Ville is in the picturesque village of Craster on the Northumberland heritage coast in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Rock Ville was built by the owner's grandfather and is the home he grew up in.

The surrounding countryside offers delightful market towns and villages, beautiful sandy beaches, many ancient castles and churches and the wild countryside of the Coquet Valley, Simonside and Cheviot Hills.There are abundant opportunities for birdwatchers, walkers, cyclists and golfers.

Within the village there is a pub serving food, tearoom, art gallery, fish restaurant and wet fish shop.

Sea angling trips depart from the harbour.

What makes this house unique

Rock ville is just a minutes walk from the harbour and the centre of the village. Relax in the sunroom with its panoramic uninterrupted views and admire the sea. Wander through the garden gate and explore the rock pools when the tide is out.

Watch the sunrise or the moonshine across the sea from your bed in the double or twin rooms. Sit by a cosy multi fuel burning stove and look at a dramitic stormy sea. There is always something to watch.
